Users can link to avatars, or if you permit it in the ACP and set the permission of your avatars folder to 777, they can upload them.

The avatars folder is in the images folder, which is in the forum root. To set its permission, rightclick it in your FTP client and select Permissions/CHMOD from the context menu. You can link avatars in your Profile, if it is allowed in the Admin panel, General Admin, Configuration.

Does the site you're linking to allow external linkages? Some of the free graphics/picture hosting sites out there do not allow this.

What you say is not making sense, because a linked avatar involves no "upload". There is no problem with the file. How about filling out the Support Template?
