Small sig?
« on: May 12, 2008, 10:18:46 AM »
Ok, how do I manage to fit everything I want into my sig and not get chewed out for it being so big?
Stuff I want:
Pokemon Triforces Team Badge (although I don't see the point, it's kinda dead)
Link to my map thread
"Anti-Guy" Shy Guy Army sig picture
Something that shows my newfound Flandre fan thing (And to Tanuki: Show me where it says a loli can only have one fan at a time, and then I'll stop "stealing" your loli. *is not trying to start a flamewar*)

So, how will I be able to fit all of that in a small, bite-sized, admin-approved signature?

And I do not mean for this to be spam, I am asking a serious question here.

It's all about compressing it well, organising it, or just skipping parts that don't matter

..fan? It's much deeper! >:
Plus I don't like the thought of sharing a loli, and there's such a vast selection out there anyways that you could theoretically mark them as products if you're mean like that

Bottom part struck out because I do not feel like arguing with you about it. I specifically said I'm not trying to start a flamewar.

Anyway, if I put it all in a marquee, would that still be considered too big?

Just put it together in photoshop using a small font for the text.
This sig is now blank.

Ah...about that...

I don't have photoshop at home, and I don't have the money to get it. Should I just use Paint?

i suggest to sprite/draw a new pokemon triforce badge which is smaller than the first one and put the anti-guy banner right inbetween, or the flandre thing for that manner. One of those(the one you find less important) shall be kicked out. the remaining picture can be hotlinked and lead to your thread while clicking.
Under that new construction, you can give an advice to click the picture to get to your thread.

Ok, let me find a way to save that advice before this topic goes down in the deeps of the rotting threads.

Did it, and I actually improved on my artwork! Haven't gotten around to compressing the sig however ^^;
