Yeah,
so I tried HTML and I can't get my sig to get a freaking pic on it.
Once I did, but it ended up as big as the entire page o.o

ps. YES I KNOW I SPELLED SIGNATURES WRONG

might be an anti Allen Iverson thing Hobbes has secretly wired into the site

my guess is the "-" (dashes) in the url are the problem

That picture is F'ing huge..........and has alot of detail, possible alot of pixels.

How big is the picture if you save it to your machine and look at the size of it?

To show how big it is...........Ill post it below, with the same codes you are using for the sig line.............but look =

ITS HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There has never been a sig as big as that on this board...........so I imagine thats the problem.

If you really want it, try saving it on your machine and then scaling it down with a tool like photoshop, or even Paint should do it, then host it yourself from photobucket or something similar.

dont think is is the size, although it IS huge and is way too big for a sig, but the forum software (phpbb) does not like the dashes in its BBCode.

But theres no reason it would work in posting and then not in the sig line............must be the size if it works in a post?

I dont know, especially dont know why Im arguing with you bro............just how it makes sense to me is all. :wink:

well, it does not work in your post either. At least for me. All I see is a red x

Yep, same here... but it does work if you open the pic in a new window. And it's certainly HUGE. I also think it can be because of the size...

Yes, a "-" is a valid URL character however the forum software, phpbb, uses a special html language called BBCode. BBCode was developed to allow posters to be able to use typical html tags without the risk of users being able to use htlm to run scrips or viruses, etc. So it is somewhat limiting and perhabs a "-" is an invalid BBCode character.

But it could be size just as easily.

Or it could be that I have put code on the site to not allow pictures of one of my least favorite NBA players of all time (Iverson). LOL

Don't give me any ideas... It'd be fun if people knew that certain players, like Iverson, Arenas or... say, Marcus Banks cannot be used in sigs. :mrgreen:

Fellow???


Marcus Banks is a weapon of mass destruction, the biggest threat in humanity's history... :mrgreen:


Although, to be honest and back to the topic... neither do I. I've hated him for so long that I've forgotten why. :mrgreen:


I remember it was a topic about him, about trading for him or something and I said I had never liked him as a player, he was careless with the ball, streaky shooter (at best)... He was still in Boston, iirc, and migya started defending him, which made me attack him even more viciously... and shortly became a running joke.

I think it was something like that, but it was so long ago that I can't be sure if that was the first time... :wink:

No it's not the size-I somehow got it on once, and it was so big that I took it off immediately :)

my suggestion would be to right click click on the picture then save the picture to your hard drive, resize it, then upload it to a pic host (like imageshack or something) without the dashes. Then point your URL to that new URL.
