This thread is a guide to new people who want to make signatures, which are the blocks of text that appear under people's posts.

So here we go:

Why would I want a signature?

A signature gives an identity to a forumer or and allows you to put links to sites or places that you like. You can also put in quotes from famous people or other forumers that you like or made you laugh. i.e. veni, vidi, vici.-Julius Caesar

NOTE: HeavenGames does NOT allow pictures in signatures. Therefore, the [IMG] tag is disabled. However, you can use smilies in your signature, but don't put more than 5 in them, as these take up a lot of bandwidth + loading time for slow connection users. HTML code, javascript, php and the quote tags are disabled as well.

Where do I make my signature?

You can get to the area where you make your signature by accessing your account via the account tab in the top left hand corner of the page, just below the logo. Once in, click on the 'edit signature' link and you're in.

People have underlined, bolded etc. their text in their signatures. How do I do that?

Here is a link to the list of BB Code for standard text stylising:
http://www.heavengames.com/forumfaq.shtml#bbcode

Some more BB Code:

How to centre your text:

There is a thing that the BB Code list misses out, that is the centre syntax. Big sigs with fading and the like tend to look better when centred. Here is how to do it:

[center]centred text[/center] gives you:

centred text

In case you're wondering about this little bit above: Centre = English Spelling | Center = American Spelling and I am English but the UBB Program is American.

How do I colour my text?

Colouring your text is fairly simple, you can colour your text by using the tags:

[c=red]coloured text[/c] gives you coloured text.

That's basic colouring, but you can make it look cooler by using a technique called fading, this is done by combining two colours together like so:

[c=ff0000-000000]red to black text[/c] gives you red to black text.

You can make the text look even cooler by fading from one colour to another then back again or to another colour:

[c=ff0000-000000]red to black[/c] [c=000000-ff0000]to red text[/c] gives you
red to black to red text.

[c=ff0000-000000]red to black[/c] [c=000000-00bb00]to green text[/c] gives you
red to black to green text.

Here are some patterns you can use as well:

_.,-=~+"^'`*`'^"+~=-,._

(`._.[ ]._.)

.`) (`.

o.O O.o

- - --^[ ]^-- - -

.`.

`..`._.

*~-.,.-~*

O O

׺`

(- -)

,,`,

-==-

..,,--++ ++--,,..

.: :.

+*^*+

_||_||_||


And some weird or unusual signs/characters:

a A b (3 B c C d D e E f F g G h H | |
I j J k |{ | < K l L m (v) M n N o () O p P q Q r R s $ S t ~|~ | T u
|_| U v V w W x y Y z Z ? ○ √ ∙ ♠ ♣ ♥ ♦ ♪ ♫ % * & ^ # @ !

The colour chart/table:

For single colouring you can normally just type in the colour and the program will pick it up. For fading and different shades of colour though, you'll need to use the hex triplet code. Here are a couple of colour tables for you to use. The combination of numbers and letters next to each colour show that that is what you have to put in to get the colour of your choice.

HG's colour table: http://www.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=25,319058,,20
Or you can use this one if you want:

Signature Rules

Now you know what you can do to make a signature, there are some rules to follow:

  • Signatures cannot be longer than 6 (six) lines.
  • No Signatures images may be used.
  • The Tags: Code, IMG, and Quote are disabled.
  • HTML is disabled.
  • No More than 500 visible characters.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this long article, any suggestions as to how to make it better are welcome.

    I would ask you guys if I should change my signature, but for two reasons, I will not.

    A. I hate you all
    B. Mine is so superior that it's glory cannot be comprehended.

    The OP needs #s before each colour number to work. Is this another new "improvement" like the QUOTE tags?

    I recognized it was everything else backwards

    Now, I shall not change my qoutes (for reasons 1 and 2) But I can explain them.

    The first one was from Frederick the Great (of Prussia). His soldiers were retreating from the field of battle, so he shamed them into rallying by saying "Dogs, do you wish to live forever".

    Number two is my own variation based on my political beliefs. Referring to demagogues and the masses.

    Number three is from Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, I always liked it, and it goes with my view that death will happen whether we like it or not, it's natural, we need to get used to it.

    Number four was said by Julian the Apostate after being made Caesar. I like how it shows the inevitable decline and death that was often marked by being of royalty.

    We are one step closer to taking over the world (who was the forummer who started bunny again? I forget who I got it from...! I prefer quotes with meaning (a message, if you will), but I also like to be sarcastic, I changed it a few times to find a balance.
