There's no reason your current signature could not be one image...

Its to 2 different links. Unless you have a way to link sections of a picture to different pages...

I think the main issue was that guy who doubled the size of the signature by mirroring the top and bottom of the image to make a very large image

I understand that, but can't you set it to do something like: x-sized photos can be put x times, and so on?

Not easily, no. There becomes a problem when people's signatures are more obvious and contain more information than their posts.

Well isnt that the nature of signatures? Since they appear on all your post, you perfect them to look or or contain the info you want to display. Having multiple images just make it look cleaner then text alternatives IMO.

But still why do you need multiple pictures? When a single picture can contain all information?

If I combined the two pictures I currently have, could I still have them link to different spots? No, so they don't contain all the info.

Testing out some new forum icons (TDL-themed). They will be changed and improved. Don't panic if you hate them. (Feedback welcome.)

We'll be working on readability. A few of these will have to be simplified.

Alright sounds good. Love the new look though. Can we maybe get a new background while your at it? The white doesn't match the rest of the site IMO.

I dunno.
It doesn't fit nicely with the other theme.
If you are going with the whole red alert status buttons you would have t eventually redo the entire forum theme.

It feels they are way to clashy right now. The grey felt more somber and in line.
But personally thats my opinion

If you are redoing the colors.

I sugges Black background
Grey text boxes and orange text with the red buttons.

Black Grey Orange is an amazing color combo.
If anyone remembers the OOOOOLD planet halflife
Used the same color combination

posts.

Press F5 next time you see that.

Unless you are referring to Sticky topics? Those are a zombie with a nail in the head.

Also hot topics (popular topics) have a flaming zombie.

thats what it is then, i was confused what the flaming zombie meant. i thought it meant locked threads at first lol
Also i have another question, have you ever considered making a thread where people can put ideas for those little 1-liners that you put on the google search (you know today it was "We're falling in love with you too", other days it's "Give us a like on Fanbook") those always cheer up my day.
