    To change your minecraft icon you must select an image in your browser, from the web, copy its exact location(e.g.**), and paste it in the config, or do /motdcicon CTRL+V.

    The Image Must Be png, jpg, ico, or jpeg, and it MUST be a 64x64 sized picture! Otherwise, it will either not change or show nothing!

    If the URL is long but you still want to use the ingame command use (URL Shortener) There are Numerous free image uploading sites, if you must use an image you have/that you made
