Hey, on this site I have noticed that many people have signatures beneath their posts that list things such as....Their IGN, LINE ID, Guild, Armors, etc... I have had some difficulty finding the place to create this signature. Can anybody help me out?

Like using the toolbar to embed an image, it's not intuitive at all. And once you're in there, there is no simple way to get back to the forum, so just do all of this in a new tab.

It's better to just manually wrap your image in tags, instead of trying to use the picture icon in the toolbar.

You may need to resize your image before it works for you. I typically use www.tinypic.com (you don't need to make an account to use them), and select their "message board" setting. :)

The average size for forum signatures is 500 x 150 pixels.

I don't know why you're using that banner when I made a Team Unicorn and Unicorn Stampede banner a long time ago.

I can put "Team Unicorn" on it for you, bro.

That is an AWESOME banner LOL. Did you used to be in US? If you would like to put Team Unicorn on it that would be fine. And Rookeye, I don't think he was really teasing, that sounds like a legitimate offer and I'll take it.....But I do like my horsie too :)

Wasn't sure...some people have strong reactions to internet unicorn man, both for and against. Personally, I like my culturally subversive MLP unicorns... ;)

I've never been in US or TU.
There were a few wars in a row there for awhile where HK and TU would meet in battle once or twice per war and we'd trade wins, so it became a bit of a friendly rivalry and I was just poking fun at them.

Meant to tell you I like your new avatar, Sol. What prompted the change?

Boredom.
I wanted to animate it, but the size limits are absurdly low.

I wanted to use this one that I made and have been using on another forum for a long time. Don't know if it will show up here.

It shows, but I actually like the Horus you used...with a popping sig AND avatar, it would be too much. Now most attention is drawn to your sig...

You must be sure to surround the web addy of the image with [img], not [url] tags. :)


If done correctly, you'll get this:

Wonder if it's because I haven't reached the 15 post mark yet?

Yes. Hurry up and spam this thread and then delete your posts before an admin finds out!

Thanks, I will try to get to that magic number.

I still haven't been able to get mine to work...I heard it has something to do with number of posts. Meaning junior memers can't put images in their signatures until they've been elevated to the prestigious level of member...

Aaaaah I can see the post right above mine has an image signature. ...from a junior member. ...must not be the case

It works once you've posted 15 times. :)
