What are the requirements for an image to be my icon?
The icon`s dimensions must be 50x50 pixels. If it is not, the system will resize the image to squish or stretch the image to fit the 50x50 size. This may not look too good in the end. To make sure the icon looks it`s best, you should size your icon to this 50x50 size.
The file format of the icon can be any image file format, such as jpg, gif or png. The image can be still or animated.
The icon`s image must already be uploaded on another site
(preferably places like photobucket or even here on Sceret Trance). When you are entering your icon information into Secret Trance, you are entering the url of the image`s location (example:
http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w120/myusername/myicon.jpg ). You cannot load the icon from your harddrive to Secret Trance, the icon must be on another website. (Note: If the image is deleted off the server, your icon will not work. If the site has disabled hotlinking, your icon will not work.)
Lastly, but not least, if the icon image is not your own
created image, you must have permission from the original artist to use the image as your icon. Whether or not you claim the image to be yours or you do give credit to the original artist, it is still displaying and using material that is not your own.
