The Signature guide

A signature - what is it? What can you do with it?
After you have registered, you may set your sig(signature). This is a piece of text that you would like to be inserted at the end of all your posts, a little like having headed note paper.
If the administrator has enabled signatures, then you will have the option to include your signature on any posts you make. If you have specified a signature, then the board will automatically append your signature to any messages you post.
You can set your signature by editing your profile and clicking on the "Edit Signature" link.
To adjust your profile go to the editing profile section of the forum. Go to the bottom of that page and insert anything you want as your signature.

Signature Creation
You can create various signatures, with colors or any other features. You can use whatever you like. Mind that most forums don't prefer using racistic, hate, violent or sex related words/pictures/html.

Creating a signature is fairly easy. Here are some examples of what you could use in your signature:

- Colors
- UBBcode
- Quotes
- ASCII art

The first thing you should do is decide what do you want do display in your signature. Let's take a quote for example:

"We're not lost. We're locationally challenged." - John M. Ford

Next, we decide what kind of colors we use. We use RED in our quote:

"We're not lost. We're locationally challenged." - John M. Ford

Color tags:
[/c]

Then, we decide wether we want to add some UBB code. We will use Bold and Italic.

"We're not lost. We're locationally challenged." - John M. Ford

Tags used:
[c=CC0000]
[b][/b][i][/i]

Now we have created a nice sig. But, we can make it even look cooler, whe're gonna use fading colors.
Fading colors are two colors combined and fade to each other:

"We're not lost. We're locationally challenged." - John M. Ford

Tags used:
[/c]

Mark the stripe between the two color codes, this combines the two colors together, and makes them fade.
Now some people have fading-fading colors in the same sentence. "How the heck do they make such sigs?" you ask. Well, it's very easy to do. You have to use the same fading method, but you have to change the color codes.

[c=CC0000-996600]"We're not lost. We're locationally challenged." - John M. Ford

Tags used:
[/c][c=996600-CC0000]

Here's how it looks when using the fading colors:

"We're not lost. We're locationally challenged." - John M. Ford

The colors tags are right next to each other, using the same colors. That way, you have the fading-fading effect.
Also, check the HG Forum FAQ for more info.

Good, Lennart. We may tidy this up a bit and turn it into an article.

Agree it's good work. Bad thing is - as I already started a FAQ page it would have been better to talk to me about it first so we could merge stuff. We don't need 2 or even more FAQs in one forum.

C'mon peter, you can't actually call your post a FAQ now, right (No offence meant)?

A bit of consultation would help, sure, but basically it's fine with me. Let everybody get their stuff together and then we amalgamate the lot - the new seven deadly sins, or something.

I'm sorting the sticky problem out...peter's FAQ is redudant so we can hide that. I think this thread also covers the AoE2 problem.

That's about it!

They'll see which one they need or want soon enough. We're talking about one or two mouse clicks here, doesn't seem too taxing, right?
