    Re: Signature & Avatar Guidelines

    First of all, let me clear one thing that many people are mistaken. Putting a pic under a spoiler tag DO NOT reduce the load time. The image is still loaded together with the page. The only thing the spoiler tag does is to hide the image from showing on page load. That's all.

    True, to click the spoiler tag is a choice. But to load a page without it, it's not a choice. Unless that person disables signatures all together in his/her profile, and we don't want to have anyone had to do that just because there are a bunch of people who aren't considerate by putting large images in their sigs.

    Many people have abused the spoiler tags in signatures. Large images, both in pixels and/or kB, are always found under them.

    You can let it be cool within the given limits. There are so many ways to design a cool signature pic with a funny quote under it.

    That's what the "Vist user's homepage" feature is for, imho. Following the link, you can show and see unlimited creative minds at work

    You know, I think MH is already very userfriendly here. Personally I don't like the endless signatures on others boards, that's simply not what a forum is for. On the hand, I'm modding on a second forum and there we have a limit to 250 characters and no images at all allowed. MH goes a nice middle way, not to much limited to be creative and not to much allowed to disturb the reading flow or to slow down the loading time of 56k users.

    Yeah, the spoiler tags should have an argument like autoloadimg=false

    Ya, but I doubt that you or bax don't click spoiler tags on forums... IMHO it is just cool xD

    Re: Signature & Avatar Guidelines

    I can't seem to get my signature to work at all. First I tried to use an image that is 550x166 pixels and 26 kb in size. It showed up on the preview on my user CP, but not on any of my posts. Then I tried a text only signature (one sentence only) as a test, but even that did not show up on any of my posts. Am I doing something wrong?

    Silver_Archer,

    Try this guide, if you still can't, then post here again
    http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22933

    Just make sure you have the [sigpic][/sigpic] code in your sig, since that code is representing your signature

    --------------
    Just in case, check your settings whether you unticked the "show signature" box.

    Also make sure that when you post a message, the checkbox "Show your signature" is selected. (It's in the bottom right corner of the quick reply and under "misc options" in the advanced reply).

    Blush Re: Signature & Avatar Guidelines

    Hi, one question:

    Is it allowed to link to your group's recruitment thread in your signature? I just read through all the 4 pages of this thread, the MH Rules thread and I'm still unsure about that.

    I apologise for this question 'cos I haven't been a frequent user of MH and might have already flouted one of the rules.

    Re: Signature & Avatar Guidelines

    Yeah, that's fine. We want groups to promote themself, so you can link to your group profile, recruitment and/or ask-us thread in your sig, of course.

    A decent link to your external group website is no problem either, just don't let your sig look like a commercial (we have a advertisment forum for that) or like aggressively fishing members for a different community and most importantly: no money/profit-related links
