    Several people have asked how they can upload a forum signature, so I thought I would give the brief instructions here for those who need assistance. Shade actually helped me with mine, so passing it on.

    Signature Dimensions:

    • the usual signature dimensions are --> 504 x 105 <--
    • however, please use discretion when creating larger signature content
    Signature Graphic w/no Hyper-Link Attached:
    • you first need to upload your signature graphic to a 3rd party host
    • there are several 3rd party hosts available -- I have used Image Shack
    • once you have your Signature graphic uploaded to your 3rd party host, find the graphic URL
    • copy the Signature graphic URL to the your clipboard
    • highlight your avatar name above the search bar at the top right of the forum
    • click on "Signature" in the drop-down menu
    • in the Signature screen, click on the "Image" icon to the right of the smiley face
    • a pop-up box will ask you to insert the URL to your photo
    • paste in the URL (direct link) to the Signature graphic at your 3rd party host
    • click "Ok" -- then click "Save Changes" and VOILA
    Signature Graphic w/Hyper-Link Attached:
    • follow the first 4 steps above
    • after that, you will need to copy and past the following into your signature box
    • Replace { and } with -> left and right brackets [ ] if needed
      {url=hyperlinkhere}{img}directimagelink{/img}{/url}
    • insert the URL link on the left which is your hyper-link attached to the Signature banner
    • insert the direct link URL to the Signature graphic at your 3rd party host
    • click on "Save Changes" below the Signature box and VOILA
    Hope this was helpful, and Shade, thank you for the assist.

    Now let's see some creative Signatures. :D

    Oh that's awesome. I know there's a way to add the stream module, so I'll ask Anhithe about it, and that way, there will be a notice at the forum as to how many are streaming and who as a heads up.

    Grats on the swirley. :D

    I love the twitch TV thingy, is it just live streaming?
    Or can you record as well? When I followed the link it said you were off line

    Kendra, I believe you can record the stream aswell...I´m very new to this, just started playing around with this, but just a heads up if you are to record to perhaps put on youtube or something or just have available for your viewers on twitch to look at whilst you are not live streaming...don´t use music as Twitch will remove this coz of fear of copyright infringment or something like that, however I think you can record locally aswell to just have on your computer...and yea, I´ve just been live streaming btw & I am offline atm ;) ...but here´s the great part with clicking follow on someone you want to follow, as you can also check "notify me when streamer goes online" :) Cheers! :D

    ps also this stream module that DME talks about would a great way to see is someone streams live whilst visiting this forum! I believe entropiaplanets.com have such a feature :)

    Thanks for that toe cutter I'll follow you and see how that goes, I'm also new to all of this so I'm a wee bit slow :oops:
    But it would be excellent to have a twitch section on the forum :cool:

    Yes, EntropiaPlanets has this module at their forum and I have already brought all of this to Ant's attention, but haven't heard back from him yet. I'm sure he'll get to it when he has a free moment or two to check it out and see if it's something we can do here. I would think we could because we have the same forum application environment.
