Re: Ask the Staff v7

You used an invalid code. I removed the float tags and now it's back to normal.

Re: Signature Questions and Help

Ummm I dunno if this is where I asked for help last time , ages ago. The thing is I want to make an avie that moves, I have tried but being the cow I am, I simply could not do it. Last time this nice Sholeigh Person helped me... Could anyone in here suggest someone to help me. I know Meesha could ,but I rarely see her on line anymore.
I will be very grateful

Re: Signature Questions and Help

Nyjets4004, three things:
First off, you have three images in your signature, but forum rules only let you have one, so you're going to need to figure out which one you want to keep. Secondly, your second and third pictures are too large and need to be removed.
Third, I've resized your image:
Resized Signature Pic:    


    

To put it into your signature, save it to your desktop and go here. Click on "Browse" and select the image from your desktop. Then go here, copy the image link, and edit your signature here.
As soon as I've noticed you've done so, I'll be deleting it so please don't link from there. ^_^


Montse, try asking other members in the Artists Unite forum for advice and help, or you could try using a search engine. I've only ever animated in PS3, but explaining would take this thread, which is for signature questions, off topic.

Re: Signature Questions and Help

This isn't to do with signatures, more with icons and avatars. I can't for the life of me find out to get one?

I'm not sure what you mean by "icons", but avatars you can only get once you're admitted into Hogsmeade. You need over 300 quality posts in qualifying areas for that. I've seen people with 1,000 posts and still not admitted. All you can do is try. Good luck!!

The important thing, however, is having fun. So post, take part in discussions, stay civil, mind the Mods, and you should be OK. Most of all, don't think about Hogsmeade or avatar, just post, get to know other members, and have fun.

Nyjets4004: You can't have three pictures as a sig at the same time, but you can have the pictures alternate. There's a number of software you can use to make a .gif picture like mine, in both my avatar and my sig. Or you can have just one animated picture by having a Gif pic - like some of the smilies in here, they're all GIF and they move. Like or or See my answer to Montse below.

Do you have PhotoShop or Movies13? Those will allow you to have moving avis and siggies.

ETA - I realize that all the two last posts I responded to are months old. I hope Nyjets4004 and Montse have resolved their problems long since.

Re: Signature Questions and Help

Can signature pics be more than 100KB but smaller than 300x300? The line 'whichever is smaller' usually confuses me,

Re: Signature Questions and Help

Signatures can be smaller than 300 pixels X 300 pixels. You could have a signature picture that is 300 x 75, for example, as long as the longest side is no longer than 300 pixels. But no matter how many pixels you have, the total image cannot exceed 100 kb.

.:CoS Forums Rules:.
View full rules here
9. Signatures 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. We will not allow html codes in signatures... No audio, javascripts, iframes or other "tricks" allowed. An Unspeakable or Administrator has the right to remove anything at anytime. Please also remember to close all tags and not to use ' < nobr >' . Last, please do not use excessive smilies. Smilies are a nice feature, but too many at one time can be very off putting. We are limiting smilies to 4 per signature. NOTE: We operate the signature rules on a standard 1024x768 resolution and on the CoS Expanded layout.

Re: Signature Questions and Help

Please help! I'm a member of several forums so you think I would know how to add a signature but I'm stumped. All I am seeing is a box with an X in it. What did I do wrong?

Re: Signature Questions and Help

Ok, am I being really thick? How do you get the mini House crests in your signature? Everyone seems to have them, but I can't figure out how they're done!

I think you're talking about these - - if so, they are CoS smileys, of which you are allowed no more than four in your signature. They are created with these codes - :gryff: :rave: :huff: :slyth: - hope that answers your question. ^_^

Will the signature image appear as the avatar next to our usernames? If not, how do I do that?

No, the signature image appears at the bottom of your posts.

Re: Signature Questions and Help

I'm trying to upload a sig pic, and the CoS Image Hosting info box gives the dimensions as 240 x 241, but when I check the properties, it gives dimensions as 320 x 240. Which one should I go by, to make sure the pic size is okay?
