Getting buddy icons

clvrmnky   March 09, 2012, 04:15 AM

Is there a way to build a URL to the buddy icon, say via people.getInfo?

I tried a few experiments, like "h t t p : / /{iconserver}/buddyicons/{id}.jpg"


Duh. I guess it's something like:

h t t p : / /{username}/a/buddy

Yup, it's actually extremely easy -- and also an outmoded method of handling buddy icons because it doesn't really allow us a good way to distribute then between servers. But it will work.
