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.

Who still uses dinosaurs?
I'll update my tiny faq when I have a mind for it.
For the record, I stickied this one. Even though in my view, despite all its qualities, some people will find it too long and will still think it's less trouble to start a new thread to ask their question.

People don't like long posts do they?

peter for your FAQ, you need to add the Age of Empires 2 problem, where people have a problem with Age of Kings.

I'm working on that one - it's hard to put it as a question when you're damn sure the person who should read it isn't even aware (s)he has a problem in the first place. Besides we have a stickied thread on the subject.
We aren't in a hurry either; I'm happy with any suggestion but please send them to me by e-mail so we don't pollute the forum any more than's necessary.

I have started revamping this with the intention of putting it in our navbar as an introduction. It will be an ongoing thing, but I would like to include such info as how to play thru a router etc. naturally there will always be a question you didn't think of, but consider this an ongoing project and all input welcome.

We'll split it into parts, Lorenzo, so it isn't so much to chew through at once.

It's updated again, added some more FAQ questions. About the signature guide - I originally posted this guide on AoMH, and while writing this faq it reminded me suddenly, so I added it. But yes, the sig guide could go somewhere else

I've read it all. Do I get a prize?


On a serious note, this should be everywhere on the site. It's the most complete guide I've seen on any site.

Yes, but FAQ's are generally not written for people who know

What we will do is split this down anyway. So we will have a getting started FAQ, zone FAQ, downloads and submissions FAQ etc.
