Question:

How does one have a picture next to their nom de guerre when they comment? I can't figure it out.

It is tied into your profile.

I know but I can't get a picture onto the profile. It asks for the URL and the only thing I know that does that is 'Hello' which for the life of me I can't figure out.

I also had wondered how pics got onto the site or comments, so I did trial and error about a week ago. I found a pic on Google Images, copied the shortcut and then I think I copied the shortcut into my profile section, where they ask you for a photo URL or linking URL, something like that. Try it.

TP - That is a risky way of doing it. If they take down the picture you won't have a picture any more. And if they get upset that someone is using the picture they could replace it with one that you might not be too happy with.

I got a sense that it's an image bank--photos/images are meant to be used and adapted. Somehow I just stumbled onto it when I googled "pearl in oyster."

check out Treppenwitz's blog for a story about using bandwidth. When you link to an image someone else is hosting, like Air said, you at the mercy of what they put there.
