Thumbs up Signature Line(s) & Graphics

When creating your "Signature Line", Please do NOT use Graphics in them.
This eats up database space and BANDWIDTH increases and when everyone starts using them, It makes it hard to read the actual Text Messages.

I have seen this on other forums, and all you see is the Signature graphics all over the message posts....and you have to scroll way down to actually read the messages.....

If you need to make the text signature smaller, just put the codes in front of the text

i.e.
this is small text
[ size = 1 ] put text here [ /size] (without spaces)

BOLD: [ b ] [ /b ]
BOLD

IMAGES IN MESSAGE POSTS:
The Max. size is 800x600 and less then 70K in size.
The Max. size for an Avatar is 50x50 and less then 10K in size.

Also, you can upload MUCH larger Files in the Photogallery. You can upload up to 150K file size and then just link to the image in your message. see below.

Also, you can link to images other other sections of the website or other websites ex) [ img] http://www...../imagename.jpg [ /img] (Look at the Help section of the forums under VB CODES)
That will display the image directly.

Otherwise uploading it will only display an attachment link.


Thanks.
Questions, let me know!

Nope

You;'re okay, it's small and not too obtrusive...

It uses Greenwich? Mean Time (GMT) - 5 hours. (International Date Line)

Sometimes the time gets screwed up? and it states the wrong time...

The Forums are ON the East Coast, actually in Virginia, I think? I am not really sure...I am in NY...hmmm..maybe I am in another time zone??? Maybe the forums are in Texas or California, who cares, they work.

Thanks!

I knew it was somewhere down there. Actually the company I am dealing with http://www.ntidesign.com has really good features/hosting rates at the time I needed a site. They share the Verio Computer backbone in a building or something??

As long as it is running, I am happy!

Dave, Verio is huge. They, like other ASP's will rent servers' to small companies who then rent out the servers to people like you and me. www.verio.net, they have packages that start at $15/month. I did the same thing for my company, we were on a web server leased by a third party design company. I moved our web site to a large ASP for 1/2 the price. You're right though, as long as the rates are cheap, the service is good, the site stays up, and they use reasonable security measures, who cares where the server is.

Is there any way to limit or restrict the length of Signature Lines?

IMHO, the number of lines in the signature should not exceed the number of lines of the actual text. A good example is quoted above.

A lot of this stuff could be simply put over in a "bio" no?

Just how many times do I need to read and re-read someone's VIN number, the color of his car, all the cars he has owned in their life time, favorite quote, etc?

Sorry, I wasn't really trying to pick on just you.

I am just proposing that the text-to-signature "ratio" should never be more than 50%. In other words, the number of lines in that person's signature should never be more than the number of lines in the important message one is trying to write.

Mostly, I support people having something important to add to the thread, but that message can all to easily get lost in a "sea" of line after line after line in the long signature.

There is already a handy "Profile" button at the end of each posting. IMHO, it should be in those profiles that people keep their all personal info, not at the end of each and every posting they make. Anyone interested in that person's info, after reading a posting, can just click on the "Profile" button and read it too.

Ummmm...Or....you could just go into your "Edit options" on your "User control panel" and under "Thread View Options" select "no" for "Show user's signatures in their posts?"....I'm pretty sure that's why that option is available

Personally, the signature area, especially when mods are listed, is one of my favorite things on this website...I enjoy seeing what mods others are doing...it has prompted many a PM and/or photo request...both from me and to me...

Wow, thanks! It works.

I had seen that option, but assumed that "user's signature" meant my signature. Therefore, that option meant to show (or not show) my signature in my own posts.

I didn't realize that in the options section sometimes the term "user" meant me, and sometimes it meant other users.

IMHO, Everything you guys would want to know about me is all there already. I have a yellow avatar and my name is pretty specific to my gender. Occasionally I sign with my first name. I have no past mustangs to include in my sig. That's really the only thing I notice in a sig. I think only unusual facts warrant a signature line. We are all talking about the same car :LAUGH: Many have the same mods. etc etc etc.....

I agree...long indepth signatures are useless. Just state the facts and be done with it.

For some reason, I can't use VB codes to insert pics on this site, like this one...



What am I doing wrong. This same link worked on two other forums I tested it on.

Edit: Now it works on this forum section. Man, am I confused!

OK, lets try this one...



OK, I posted both of those in the Problems section and neither of them are coming up there. I surrender.

Re: Signature Line(s) & Graphics

I would like to add a "orange" Mustang avatar to my thread.
1. Is it okay to do that (seems I may need to borrow the photo from someone)
2. Are there instructions on how to perform install?

Thank you,

Michae (aka Vffr1)

Re: Signature Line(s) & Graphics

I have a question on sigs. I have tried to resolve mine but I cant find out how. On other boards there was a way to make it so only your first post in a thread showd your sig, while any new replys on the same thread left it off. Is that an option on this board? I cant seem to find that setting?

It is probably a 'hack' for the forums, we don't have that installed
