What up, peeps?

My name's Statick and its good to be here. (Actually, anywhere where's there's Falcons fans is where I want to be!)

It's refreshing to see another board outside of the troll-infested ESPN board, even though from time to time I do love abusing those idiots. I've been a Falcons fan since 1980 and even though I live in NC, I know I'm guaranteed to watch at least two Falcons games because I'm in PantyLand (Panthers, yech) . Mostly I've been posting on the official Falcons board, but its always good to have another board to frequent to talk Falcons football.

Hey guys,

Started getting tired of the TATF forum over @ AF.com. Kinda got painful to hang around in, especially after losses. Anyways, You guys will notice that I talk a lot of college football (GO GATORS!), so hopefully that is okay (at least it isn't religion or politics). I graduate in 4 weeks so I won't be around much between now and then. I'll see you guys around I'm sure. 8-)
What's a signature?

Hello all:
Greetings from Fan Hell (Charlotte,NC), where I hear nothing but talk on how great the teal kitties will be this year.

I'm hoping to have some good conversation here as opposed to other boads where only a select few are allowed to post in the "Football areas". I was born in the ATL, lived in SC and now in NC.. I have been a fan since the early 80's.

Welcome Cybed. The Panthers are going to be tough, but we'll give them a run for their money.

Welcome. We're a pretty laid-back bunch as some have put it, so feel free to throw around your opinions.

How come my sig won't work? Did you disable images in sigs, Pudge?

The current signature settings are such that it doesn't allow you to have more than 510 characters, more than 10 links, or an image bigger than 990 x 300 pixels. If your image doesn't fit those specs, my suggestion is to shrink it.

I find it very distracting when you're on forums, and peoples' signatures take up half the screen. I understand people's desire to express themselves in their signatures, but the content of your signature should never overshadow the content of your posts. At least that's my belief.

I agree Pudge. Sigs are horrible. Express yourself through your writings, not some bloated sig. AF.com is out of control, and one of the reasons the site crashes so often. Sigs take up valuable memory on the servers. Especially the animated ones.

My sig isn't bad... And it's not animated. And I don't believe my one sig will take up "valuable memory" on this server...but I guess it's not worth it to go through all this trouble to get a sig, so I'll just stick with this avatar only.

That should work.

Maybe it has something to do with the BBcode you're using. If you need help there: faq.php?mode=bbcode

It may also be the type of image it is. As far as I'm aware, GIF, JPG, PNGs, should work. Not sure about BMPs or SWFs.

I'm pretty sure it's just

Code: Select all

[IMG]INSERT HERE[/IMG]


No?

It's a .JPEG

The .gif and .png images in my signature didn't work with the img bb code tags either, maybe there's something else going on. Pudge had to set up a special tag for mine.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that Happ.

What I did for Happ was create a special image BB tag using:

Code: Select all

[HAPP]URL[/HAPP]

Try that. It should work.

So now how do you align it to the center of your sig... lol.

I'll have to create some new BB tags that should allow that to happen. I'll get to work on it this afternoon after work.
