So I figured this'd be the place to ask this

you know how some people on the forum have avatars that change every time you load the page, so it's not constantly the same one?

I'm not looking to do that with my avatar but I'd like to know how that happens

is there a guide or somesuch that will teach me this

    It's just linking to a script that loads a random image (from a set of predefined images) each time it's called, instead of linking to a single specific image.

    It's not possible anymore because the new forum only allows uploading an avatar, not linking to an offsite one. Some people are still "grandfathered" in.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    Ok so the reason I asked for a guide is that I would still like to use one for something totally unrelated to avatars

    ergo why I said I'm not looking to do that with my avatar

    I appreciate the explanation though
