No, CoS has no sorting area.

Maybe this will help:
Tutorials: Signature Questions and Help

If you're looking for image sites like Mugglenet and Leaky Cauldron have a bunch of HP ones.

Or any image you would like as long as it follows forum rules

COS Forums Rules on signaturesSignatures are permitted on CoS, but there is a need to limit the type of signature you can have. This is to help reduce the load time of a thread for members on slower dial up connections. You may edit your signature in your profile and include one (1) small image of up to 300x300 pixels and 100KB (102400 bytes) and up to 7 lines of 8-12 point (size1-3) text.

Re: Questions from New Members

YAY! I didn't know that this got stikied! (In fact, I forgot about it til now!) Good idea changing it to having new members talk to older ones, cause when I was a first year, I was lost for a while. To any new members, remember that there is no such thing such as a stupid question! (Except if you are on the stupid question thread! )

Re: Questions from New Members

It's definitely better to ask the question and know for sure than being caught out!

Re: Questions from New Members

Greetings,

I'm a new member here. I'd like to ask how to get an avatar and signature. I uploaded them in My Images, but when I click on "Edit Signature" it says I can not have a signature. Why is this?

Re: Questions from New Members

Signatures are currently disabled to reduce the risk of spoilers. As for an avatar, only Hogsmeade students have one. You may find these threads interesting:

Re: Questions from New Members

How long does it take on average between posting a new thread & it actually appearing on the forum?

No one is keeping data on that, so there is no way to know. It could take up to 24 hours, though I don't think any are taking that long at this point. I would guess that if someone posted a new thread and it didn't appear on the forums within 3 hours that it was not approved (deemed a duplicate of an existing topic, deemed inappropriate for content/topic).

Re: Questions from New Members

I must be missing something or looking right at them. I cant find the off-topic qualifying areas. Are they under a different area? Any help would be appreciated.

You can try The Leaky Cauldron - it's a non HP area.

Most of them are currently turned off due to our Spoiler Policy. With the increasing membership post Deathly Hallow the CoS Staff can't no longer maintenance them all. Only one still available is the one Jedi_Girl linked, the others will be back probably in August.
