Your avatar or icon is the image that is displayed on the left hand side of your posts. It consists of an image of the character you are role playing for. The maximum size of avatars are 100x100 pixels. The default is 65x65, but you can easily change that by adjusting the size you would like it in your profile.
Your signature is what shows up at the bottom of every post. It is a banner, or a picture of your character. You can be as creative as you like with your signature, by adding text to it as well. There is a signature size limitation so that the board does not stretch.
The following are guides regarding your Avatars and Signatures. Click the subject to be linked to the information pertaining to it.
Step 1: Select an image. This is easily done by searching through the net of the celebrity you are using.
Step 2: You need to either upload the photo or somehow obtain the URL (or link) to your photo. This can be done by right clicking, going to properties and copy and pasting where it says “Address (URL)”. Uploading your photo requires an image hosting site (ie: photobucket, imageshack etc. Accounts on these sites are easy to make, just go to their websites: http://www.photobucket.com)
Step 3. Go to your profile; press “Modify Profile” and paste the URL where you see “Avatar URL”. You can also change the width and height of it, but the maximum size is 100 x 100. The default size it goes to if you enter the URL, but leave the width and height blank is 65 x 65. So if you want it bigger, you have to enter the appropriate dimensions. As previously stated, it can be no bigger than 100x100. If your image is bigger than that size, it may look squished. If you need help resizing your icon, then let me know.
In addition, if you would like text underneath your avatar (most commonly people put quotes that they’re characters have said) then go into “Modify Profile” and enter the text where it says “Personal Text”. There is a limit to how much you can write, so make sure your text does not get cut off.
Step 1 and 2 Follow the same process as putting up your avatar, so just follow those two steps for your signature too.
Step 3: Go to “Modify Profile” (which is located after pressing the `Profile`button) and scroll down to where it says “Signature”. In order for your picture to show up as an image, you MUST enter the following code:
[img]EDIT: Insert URL of your image[/img]
You can also add text to your signature, however keep in mind that this too has a limit of how much you can enter. With the text, you can change the color, size, and font of it. You can also make the text and image move, and center it. Here are some of the codes that you can enter:
[color=ENTER COLOUR HERE]ENTER TEXT HERE[/color]
[font=ENTER FONT HERE]ENTER TEXT HERE[/font]
[size=ENTER SIZE HERE; use numbers]ENTER TEXT HERE[/size]
[move]ENTER TEXT OR IMAGE HERE[/move]
[this will cause your text and/or image to move across the screen]
[center]ENTER TEXT HERE[/center]
[this will make your image and/or text appear in the middle of the screen; you can also align it to the left and right]
Any codes that are available in posts, are also available for your signature. [/blockquote]
What this basically means is that every time you post, a new image will appear in your signature and/or avatar. They appear in a random order. You select the pictures you would like and they will be entered, so as you post, you will see different images with each post. The more images you have, the more variation you will see. If you do not see a certain image for several posts, then do not worry. It is still there, it just may take some time to show up because the order of which the images are shown are completely random, and so are in no particular order.
It is possible to have both a changing signature and a changing avatar. There is however a limit to how many pictures you can have. It takes work to make these changing avatars and signatures, so a limit is necessary. You do not have to have the maximum amount of pictures. You can only have 10, 14, 8 or 2 even if you like, since of course two is the minimum.
Avatars: There is a limit to 10 icons. If you have over 1000 posts, then you are permitted an additional 5 pictures for your changing avatar, making it 15 in total. If you have a picture, and would like to make an icon out of it but are not sure how, then I can do it for you. They can not be bigger than 100x100 pixels.
Signature: All your images must be within the size limit, no larger and if they are then I will automatically resize it myself. They are permitted to be smaller. If you also are not sure how to resize it, then I can help you.
If you are able to, please host the pictures yourself. This means that they are uploaded in your photobucket account. If you are hosting them, then DO NOT move the location of those pictures. If you move them into another album, then your changing signature will no longer work.
If you are unsure how to host/upload them, then let us know and we can either try to explain, or will in fact upload them for you and keep them in a secure album. We would appreciate it if you can do it yourself if you are familiar with the process.
Please contact us for a changing signature and/or avatar. You can have both, either, or none.
NOTE: It takes time to make these changing signatures and avatars so please do not expect it the day after you requested it. We will let you know approximately how long it will take. We may be busy, so it could take up to several days.
There is a rule outlining the limitation that the banner in your signature can be. Your image can be no longer than 600 pixels and no higher than 350 pixels.
This is to prevent the screen from stretching, as it proves to be very inconvenient for members because they have to scroll down. It also messes up the aligning of the board. It is the MAXIMUM size. There is no minimum size, so your signature picture can be smaller than this if you like. Members who do not change their signature size will be reminded in a PM, and if it is still not changed, the admin will change it for them.
If you are unsure how to resize an image, or need help doing it, then feel free to send me a PM and I can either explain to you how to do it, or do it for you.
