    Welcome to my guide!

    I'm going to explain what signatures are, how they work, and how you can create your own.

    Special thanks to @Sir Vincent for suggesting this!

    What are Signatures?

    A signature is a small area on the bottom of your posts where you can write text or put images. Each time you make a post, your signature will appear on the bottom.

    You must have a minimum number of posts in order to create a signature. But, chances are if you're reading this, you have enough!

    Signatures use BBCode markup and not HTML.


    Using BBCodes, I'll show you how I created one of my signatures. My signature combines both a GIF animation and text.

    Steps:

    1. Want to use an image? create your image and upload it to a site. Confused? See my guide for posting images.

    2. Go into your profile settings and select "Signatures"

    [​IMG]

    3. Insert the BBCode for posting an image. You can then highlight your image and hit the alignment options on the top panel (they look like buttons, the options are right, left, and center).

    Optionally, you can just add some text and play with the formatting options.

    [​IMG]
    (These are the alignment settings.)

    A decent entry will look like this...

    [​IMG]

    4. Check your posts! The signature will appear on the bottom of all of your forum posts and conversations.
    Don't know how to make your own image? Feel free to ask other players in the ChatBox for help.

    Keep in mind that you can use animated GIFs in your signatures as long as they aren't large or annoying! (That's actually my rule, not an official rule!) Have fun!

    Very detailed and informative!
    That's 10 times better than my sig.
    Great work @Sapphire ::coffee::.
    Since it won't be included in the Guide index of the game, I will stick it since this would be useful to everyone in the forum. Thank you.

    Haha thank you all, and thanks Vincent. :)

    Pen is right though. We do need more animations. But Rinny would throw my ass out of here if I lagged the site. ::joy:::-P::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::::VIP::

    Sorry Pen did the whole peer pressure thing.

    Sure!! You can post them or PM and let me know how you want it to appear and I'll take a look. It may be that the images themselves don't have enough blank area in them or something.

    For some reason I can't save my sig cause of this:Your content can not be submitted. This is likely because your content is spam-like or contains inappropriate elements. Please change your content or try again later. If you still have problems, please contact an administrator. I'm trying to make a gif sig but it won't work

    You need to make more comments I think, be active and the like before you can.

    I cant get the gif in my signature to start moving, can you help me with the code?
    EDIT: Now there it is.
