<div class="legacy-vbulletin"> <div class="article-body"> <p>Greetings summoners,</p><p>As you've likely noticed, Summoner icons have arrived on the forums! Begone question marks!</p><p>As you may know, at Riot we participate in a periodic hackathon known as Thunderdome. During the latest Thunderdome, a couple of us did some tinkering to make your in-client summoner icon accessible on the web. This service opened up the possibility of displaying your summoner icons within the vBulletin forums.</p><p>But wait, there's more! This service also provides you with a url you can use to load your summoner icon on external avatar services.</p><p>Here's how it works: use your region and summoner name as a part of the following link. <strong><a href="http://avatar.leagueoflegends.com/%7bregion%7d/%7bsummoner%20name%7d.png" target="_blank">http://avatar.leagueoflegends.com/{region}/{summoner&nbsp;name}.png</a></strong></p><p>Here's an example: <strong><a href="http://avatar.leagueoflegends.com/na/Krylhos.png" target="_blank">http://avatar.leagueoflegends.com/na/Krylhos.png</a></strong></p><p>Alternatively, simply right click your summoner icon on one of your posts and select "Copy image url."</p><p>A couple notes:</p><ul><li>This service will automatically update as you change your icon in-client</li><li>Allow up to an hour for changes to show up on the web</li><li>This service will not affect any pre-existing avatars (i.e. Rioters / Wrenchmen)</li></ul><p><strong>Why didn't something like this come out sooner?</strong> We didn't want to sacrifice the already-shaky stability of vBulletin. As our tech continued to evolve though, new services became available that allowed this specific feature to be developed without putting the forums at risk.</p><p>Let us know if you have any issues or questions. &nbsp;Thanks!</p> <style type="text/css"> .article-body .region-na, .article-body .region-br, .article-body .region-eune, .article-body .region-euw, .article-body .region-tr { display:none; } </style> </div> </div>

Awesome!

Next, how about some Factions (http://leagueFactions.net) icons, so we can rep Ionia or Zaun on the forums?

Thats cute, but there is still no blacklist option from you.

FEK remains superior.

But seriously, good work
