Is photo uploading possible?
Hi there,

My friend invited me to join his game that's been running for yearsss.

I am making a new character but would like to include a few pictures, but am not sure how to do this. Could someone please tell me if there's special coding to use or an upload button that I'm missing?

Thanks in advance!

You can't upload photos to the site, but you can link to images saved on other sites (I know there are multiple options available, but the only one that comes to mind right now is Photobucket).  It should be a site which you control, or an image-hosting site, as opposed to hot-linking to some other site where images could be taken down or changed without your knowledge.

To add to what Facemaker said, there are a couple of ways to include images.

There are a ton of character portraits already available. However, if you canít find something appropriate, you can submit them. More info is here, although I think submissions are on pause right now: link to a message in another game

Another way is to find a picture you want to use, host it on a site like Imgur, and include a link to it using this code:

<img src=URL of your picture here>

Hereís an example:

<img src=https://i.imgur.com/7vjvokB.jpg?1>

I thought these links required quotations, like this:

You can include quotation marks, but they don't seem to be necessary. I don't use them in my games, and my images still show up.

The quotes are only necessary if there is a space in the path, otherwise they are optional.
