A question about custom avatars

Can we put something or some character from another game as our custom avatar? For example a Street Fighter character? As Campcom holds the copyright I though maybe it wasn't legal so I wanted to ask.

EDIT: I have posted this at the wrong place. Can someone move it to Turban Tribunal?

Have you seen the Bauldur's Gate avvies? That is a yes, captain, as long as you can size it properly. (Ask Jabanoss or Adrius)

Can't update my Profile

Hello, I can't update my Profile. It tells me I have to choose a non-taken avatar-pic, because mine would be reserved by another user. I have this avatar-pic since I registered here ages ago... What can I do about this?!?

@favio:

1st step: Have 50 posts to your name
2nd step: Find the picture You want as your avatar
3rd step: Ask Lizard nicely to upload it for You in this thread. (If needed, he'll even resize it for You, he's awesome like that)
4th step: Find the avatar in the avatar list, and set it as your new one, once Lizard's uploaded it. In your case, it'll be named something like *favio_[YEAR]*

You can request 1 custom avvie per year, so choose wisely!
Please note that even if only one avatar can be reserved per member, it's considered impolite to set someone else's old custom avatar as your own.

I have a question. I tried to use one of the avatars and ofc I also got the message that it is being used by another player. Now under every avatar it states how many users are using it....what is it determined by?? How come 7 users can use avatar that I would like to use and others are used even by greater number of people like 15 or 20, but I can't use this particular one for some reason. What do I have to do to change that? I would like to have H2 black dragon one.

People can reserve an avatar when no one else uses it and then no one else can use it for their avatar.

Actually, there could be 6 other people who got it before it was reserved by one of them. It only prevents people from taking it in the future, it doesn't remove the picture from their possession. So even if it is reserved, multiple people can still have it.

I see thx for explaining. Is there possibility to upload Your own avatar from your own PC.? Another thing is what about avatars reserved by people who are no longer active? I have seen those in gallery and as a matter of fact I also know that those players are not active for few years now. Is there a chance to make those avatars available for new people? Or will they remain forever unobtainable and not used by anyone therefore IMO wasted??

good point. there should be a cut-off time limit for avatars, according to how long someone has been gone.

I don't see why not you shouldn't be able to use an image from your PC.

E.g. go to any image uploading home page, such as imgur.com, and upload from computer.

Then right click on the uploaded image, click copy image url (or whatever it's called in your language) and paste it in to this code, replacing the text "image code":
[img]image code[/img]
If you quote it, remember to remove the [b] tags, as they're just there so I could write this example without the forum thinking I'm trying to upload an image.

Post said code in the avatar upload thread, and I imagine LW will tell you if it can be uploaded (which in my experience it usually can).

While not a completely satisfying solution, I'm sure it's possible to get an already existing avatar re-uploaded under a different name, as avatar names does not uniquely define what is in the picture and I doubt anyone is going to look through the massive archive to find out what is already uploaded for any given image.
Not that satisfying because of the 1 avatar pr. year limit, though (not to mention unnecessary bandwith usage, but I'm sure if Val recognizes the problem, he'll solve it).

It's a shame that generic avatars can be reserved (I can't select the H2 Titan T_T).
