so if that is what he's doing, how can he get that avatar over?
checked the link for other choices...where else would I look for a selection?
Assuming that that is what he is doing then he may be able to copy the avatar and place it on his own webspace and link to it or use one of the photo hosting sites.
Have you tried Google "Avatars phpBB2"
First site I go to from Google has 100's of avatar packs.
The truth is out there.
Unfortunately they will not let you anywhere near it!
