Title: How do I get a signature and an avatar? (quick guide)
Post by: Janine on Tue, Jul 05, 2005, 03:44 AM
To create your sig, go to your profile and insert your text into the signature textbox. If you want to post an image, use the following code:

[ img]http://www.linktomypic.com[ /img]

To center your pic, type the following:

[ center][ img]http://www.linktomypic.com[ /img][ /center]

You can also use the center tags to center your text:

[ center]This is my sig text[ /center]

Please note that the code only works without the blanks!

To get an avatar, you might link to a picture hosted elsewhere by inserting the link into the "Specify avatar by URL" box at the 'Forum Profile' page of your profile.

Oh thank you so much JS ~ I remember thinking about doing something like this last night (before I went chasing lost/firecracker scared dogs all nite ~ not mine, a friends) and then promptly forgot it.

@ K ~ do you think we should 'stick' this? (be nice...)

THANK YOU!  I am so clueless when it comes to things like this and you made it really easy.  Hopefully my sig isn't to big.

Actually Sil, thanks for reminding me ~ I had turned it off while I did all the copy paste posts.
Not sure if I'm doing more still and I need to play with my new pixie  :iloveyou ~ maybe I'll just add the beautiful pixie now and play witht the rest later.

Is there things I'm NOT allowed to put in the signature? Like Clickable dragons?

take a look here :)
whenever you're ready to post it, make a separate thread in the Junkyard forum and that way, if it's something that's going to need help, you can get help with it

I mean this >(http://dragcave.net/image/5i3Y.gif) (http://dragcave.net/viewdragon/5i3Y)< Cute little thing. It needs views to grow up and I was hoping to post them in my siggy. :)

I think it's ok to add this lovely little dragon to your signature. Many of us have links embedded in their signatures and the size fits, too. Just make sure it doesn't grow too far and exceeds the limits ;)
The only thing speaking against embedding a linked picture would be if it links to an offending site or if you'd go over the top with advertising for it.
Maybe one of our talented designers could set up a larger signature pic for your baby dragon site.

I don't know if its just me but it won't let me view the request page.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by the 'request' page? Where is it located?
Title: Re: How do I get a signature and an avatar? (quick guide)
Post by: green_eyed_girl on Sat, Dec 26, 2009, 07:13 PM
The link that you posted, to request siggies. It wouldn't let me view it.

Oh! I see. The link that Elaine posted above is to the old board, which has been disabled. She posted that link before we moved to this new board. The same thread exists here at the new board, in the Fan Art forum, and you've already made a post in that thread. :)

Just for future reference, many of the links have not yet been updated. We're working as fast as we can, but there are a lot of links to fix and most of our staff is taking a break for the holidays. Anytime you see a link that has 'vindiesel.hu' in it, you can assume it won't work. If you need to click one of those links, make a post in the thread or contact a staff member; we can help you find the thread you're looking for. And if you see a link with 'vinxperience.net' it is an updated link and should work correctly.

I knew I posted one, just wasn't sure it was the right one. lol Thanks. kinda confusing.

Post by: Janine on Mon, Dec 28, 2009, 01:25 AM
I'm afraid your sig pic is a wee bit too big. The size limit for single images is 600x200 pixels, or you can have up to three pics with a total size of 600x400. I'm sure our talented artists can help you with this if you post a request. :)

Oops, my bad. I made a request but I'll take it off until I get a sig. Sorry

Do you have any type of software that will allow you to resize it? Also, it looks like photobucket has deactivated your account. I think you can reactivate it easily by visiting your account at the photobucket site.

Bitten, where should I go to get advice on making my own siggie I downloaded PhotoPlus and am lost as to what I am doing?!

Help!!

I'm not sure I'm doing the signature right. I had a siggie made for me when I used to post on the old board. Do I need to have it uploaded to a photo website or something? And what programs are there to use to create more siggies?

Hi Blueflie, welcome to the board!

Yeah, you have to upload your siggy to one of the photo-hosting websites (like http://www.photobucket.com).  And then you can link it directly from that site.

As for programs used, do you want to know which programs our members use, or if there are programs you can use for free?

Maybe we can restore you old account and the sig is still working there ;)
I'm using a program called Photo Filtre - which is for free. There is also Gimp - but that one is overwhelming with all of the features in my eyes. Maybe your computer already has something pre-installed you could use?

thanks guys- I will try to and get an account. I wish I could remember my old user name. I haven't been on here before the board moved. I will look into those programs, I'd like to get creative.
