External Images?

I was about to add my characters to my profile using images from my Xfire profile, but the only way I can find to display an image so far is to upload it to CoHTitan (remember I'm not educated on Wiki syntex yet). I figured that pulling my images from an outside source would be easier on CoHTitan as it does not take upload space on their servers. Is it possible to do this or am I just stuck with uploading my thumbnail images to CoHTitan? The thumbnail images are already created & on Xfire servers, this is why I'm trying to bypass this step.

The ability to make use of external images in general varies by wiki, but is allowed here (and on Ouroboros Portal). The easiest way to add an external image is to simply place the address of the image in the content of a page with no tags. For instance, placing the following text on a page:
will display the following image:
As an example of external images in use, in the list of characters I have on my User page, all of the SG emblems are external images.
(On a side note, please remember to sign comments on talk pages using "~~~~" at the end of the text so that it's easier to see who left the message at a later date.) --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 17:04, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. I forget quite often to sign my comments as I'm used to it being done automatically. I do correct it when I see that I missed it though. Sorry about that...
