It seems like a few members have managed to attach images to their signatures.

While I think that this is well and good, there needs to be an actively moderated size limit put in place in order to prevent overly large images from breaking up topics for every post they appear in.

I agree with you. I don't think mine is too big.

Yours looks like a decent size. I wouldn't even mind something larger than that.





Just please... no wallpaper-sized pictures... thats too much scrolling just to see the next member's post.

I wonder if I might have been the first one? Since I noticed that HTML was allowed, I decided to try it out.

You were definitely one of the first, Grim! That signature isn't too bad, either: it's not so much width I'm concerned about (although any bigger than that would prolly be a no), and moreso for height.

Not too bad, huh? My, and here I thought it was perfect. 788 out of 800 pixels wide, and less than 200 pixels high (175). I guess my eyes are not as good as they once were...shibu, shibu.


Hmm, come to think of it, maybe that would be a good suggested maximum size for a signature banner? 800x200?


HTML is allowed. Max character length: 500


These are the only restrictions at the moment. Nothing about picture size, only a character limit.

Should you come across an image too large to make the forums readable, please flag the post and our moderation team will look into it.

I actually like that dimension. Most forums I've been to usally restricted signature image to a height of 200 pixels and a width of 500 pixels. I'm used to dealing with 200 px for height, but I would love being able to having something longer like 800 pixels ^^

Size restrictions? If your banner is too large for the forum, it will automatically be scaled down to width: (ca.) 800 pixels, but keep in mind that using a too tall picture will make it a bit troublesome to scroll past your posts.


Tell us about yours. How come you decided on that particular one, and what does it mean to you? And, apart from your own, which one is your favourite? Have you come across any banners that have caught your eye?

This signature gives me the impression of the passing of time and the factors of life, death and rebirth in between which affects various individuals. For instance, the way death is depicted in Final Fantasy IX is certainly not the stereotypical concept on the word.

The pleasure is mine. And I have to admit that the forum preferences button is easy to overlook:

(Although it's visible on every page in the forum, apart from the edit pages.)

I didn't even notice it! But mine is Sora from the beginning of KH2. I love that game and have always loved that qoute. Can't think of a better place to share it than here!

Mines is a quote from Lightning Farron. I just thought it was an awesome quote and made a good point hehe ^_^

I'm a Raiden fan so I had a friend make this sig for me.

member_10829610
28th Jul 2012, 21:18
^ I like the 8-bit Raiden in the bottom-left corner.


My sig is my PSN trophy card with a user-uploaded wallpaper & a user bar. I'm not adding any more things though or else it will be too big.


I got mine from ps3trophies.com (http://www.ps3trophies.com/)

Mine is a quote from the first building of the Zeal kingdom from Doreen, Masa's and Mune's older sister. I just really liked the sound of it and it kinda reinforces my opinion that videogames are one of the best medians to convey philosophical ideas. I'll probably eventually change it to a TWEWY quote though because TWEWY has a ton of deep quotes, especially from Mr. H and Joshua.

Mine is a quote taken from Noctis that Famitsu put in their magazine.

My picture for my signature is from a Dragon Age II wallpaper of Flemeth. I cut it in half, inverted it, and faded the edges. I edited it with Foto Flexer.


SPOILER ALERT:





My quote comes from a line Bane said in The Dark Knight Rises.

Ok how do you guys get a picture every time you make a comment. I want to know.

You mean a pic in your signature area? You can use image tags and upload an image WITHIN FORUM RESTRICTIONS to a hosting site, grab the url and put it between the tags.


Popular photo hosting sites include imageshack and photobucket, but I like using tinypic since you don't need an account to upload a pic ^^


Hope that helps~

I'm constantly changing the image part of my signature if i decide to have an image, but my quote always stayed the same since i've heard it. it's been a driving force to my motivation to continue to do what i love to do, even if there is little or no monetary value for it, as long as it makes me happy and i feel enriched and empowered through it.

My quote is from the quirky lovable British bastard, Murdoc Niccals from Gorillaz: "You were born an original, don't die a copy."

One of the most inspiring quotes I've ever heard in my life thus far, and I make it a personal mission to do so.

I'm still experimenting with my signature. I want to find/think of a good, meaningful quote to go with this beautiful photo of Light (http://quantumgamer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/tumblr_ma5mu0rVaJ1r7p3aso2_1280-600x300.jpg). (small version of what I originally found)


This pic works too (http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/289/f/5/lightning__final_fantasy_xiii__by_love_serendipity-d5hz9uk.png).





@ Arthur: If I'm correct those characters are the Dimension witch and that boy... which I always forget the name of.... They appear in Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles along with multiple other characters. Its a very good series.

Ah!!! yes!!! That's it!!! XD





Also, I'm updating my signature today. I just found a good quote, so I'll be adding that photo as well. Might have to experiment a bit. I'm not sure how adding banners works.

Go here: na.square-enix.com/go/forum/preferences (http://na.square-enix.com/go/forum/preferences)


When you upload your banner/signature image to hosting site (like photobucket, tinypic, etc), take the url it spits out for you, and put it between these tags





in that box that says it will be your signature.
