It has to do with your rank.

The two quickest ways to gain access to the image gallery in your profile are:

- SwimNerd: 100 posts, 1000 page views, 200 minutes online
- Babbler: At least 30 posts, with at least 1/6 of total posts being threads started, between 7-75 days registered.

But even after he gets the rank he cant just have anything he wants. There are still guidelines and rules about what you can and cannot have.

If you think I'm just going to try to use some picture of nudity from the show then I'm incredibly offended that you think I'm that much of an idiot, I'm hoping to be able to use my amazon.com or my kongregate.com avatar. However there is one other pic that i would like to use but i can't seem to find it again, it's a shame because it was really cool looking.

Or you can grab some fanart and get their permission... there are multiple ways of getting an image you would like to have.

Wait so is there any way to use a fanpic or something? Also, it's kinda strange that amazon or kongregate don't have this problem and Adult Swim does. Oh and if I can't use anything from Elfen Lied, would there be any problems with using something from the Warhammer 40k universe? Like a Necron or Space Marine?

Turner's standards are very strict and are a condition for having this message board in the first place. They're awkward and sometimes contradictory but you get used to them.

The acceptable kinds of images are here, under "Dos and Don'ts of image uploading."

Basically: you can use images (a) that Adult Swim owns, (b) that you personally own, or (c) that you have explicit permission to use.

You basically need to show that you have permission to use the icon.

For example, say you got the icon from Funimation's website. When you submit your icon, you need to include a link to the page which provides free-to-use avatars.

You can use your own fan art if it's something you made. If it's somebody else's fan art, you have to obtain permission to use it from the artist, and somehow include it in your submission.

The final option is DumpTruck roulette, and see if you catch the admin on a good day, because sometimes he doesn't follow the guidelines. :smileyindifferent:

well I'm pretty sure that there aren't any free to use Elfen Lied avatars floating around out there and the last thing I need is the Mods getting pissed at me.
Judging from those guidelines I am (to put it bluntly) S.O.L. because I don't have the time available to make a fanpic. I know where to find a really good fanpic, but I have no idea how contact the owner of it, just like i can't contact ADV films for permission to use a picture as a forum avatar. (since they are bankrupt) Personally, I think this is a load of crap, but I'm sure I'll get over the tragic loss of an epic avatar. I'm usin' a pic from Blood+ so at least I've got something decent still, it's a shame I can't use what I want (as far as I'm aware anyways, but I may be wrong) but like I said, I'm over it no biggie. Well thank you for the advice, it has been very helpful.

Actually it's more like welcome to adult swim in general, they've been on a downslide for years and it is absolutely heartbreaking, this is just another thing in the long list of stuff that [AS] has done that is total balogna, oh well it's not like there's much I can do about it, guess I just gotta go with the flow............lol

actually we just got the ability to have image galleries and semi custom avatars. So for all the complaining that happens about it they are still nice to have. It is better than it used to be.

yea it's nice to have if you can get permission to use what you want and, as always, I have the wonderful luck of wanting to use something owned by a company that no longer exists. Hey do you think if I showed them a link to an Email from Lynn Okamoto, they would let me use the pic? Because I'm pretty sure that his E-mail address is hidden somewhere in the manga. Hmmmmmm, I just might do that lol.

How on earth did you manage to get a Medusa icon helpme?

 

I've been wondering how it seems people are getting past the guidelines or Turner Legal finally decided to be nice and let us use whatever.
