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:

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

And some weird or unusual signs/characters:

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.

    Erm... I've worked out the actual problem, I think, they screw up when I try to put the IMG link in. Which fails.

    In ancient Greek: I don't know.

    Marcus :: Thanx bud.

    NA Lord Blaine :: This quote is meaningful to me man. I study the Samurai and their ways, also the use of the katana. Did you read it, or is it hard to see? Written by a famous Samurai, the Hagakure which is the book its in, depicts the way of the Samurai. This quote, as all others of his, teach on how a Samurai must live and value their life.

    Wait, that whole thing is by the samuri guy? I meant find a few of them, but IDK. Maybe pick your favorite colords and edit your quote with that somehow, or a picture with the words from a quote.

    Well, Im not really good at that stuff. Using CPU keys and such. But I do like the colours. And yes, its by one guy. He told these quotes to a young Samurai back in the 1700's when the Japanese government outlawed Seppoku. And there is a book that the young Samurai put together of this guys quotes. Great stuff, "The Way Of The Samurai".

    But if I put more quotes in, it will be to long.
