Signatures and avatars should show up right away after you add them. However, any posts that you've made while you didn't have a signature will still not show your sig. To make sure it shows up after you upload a sig, you need to make a new post somewhere and make sure that the "Show your signature" box is checked. Hope that answers your question. :)

*raises hand* I've checked this forum and the posts, but I'm still not sure... can I post a link or two to a website like fanfiction .net or livejournal? My sister told me that it's the best way to promote my stories... Um, this forum isn't dead yet, right?

Sure, why not? As long as it is not related to porn, bashing, or any other inappropriate content. ;)

P.S.: And why would the forum be dead? :XD

Thank you! Well, the story kinda contains T-rated BL, but nothing explicit... though few F-words... would that be okay if I put a warning that appears right after you click the link? :headscratch

And one more thing, I clicked the link to the avatar/signatures guide (not rules) but it doesn't work...

Yes, I think it is okay given that you provided a warning. :)

I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean here. Where did you find that link which wouldn't work?

I see. The thread was probably removed because the content was no longer appropriate. Most up-to-date and important information should all be listed in the first post of this thread, though. Feel free to use this thread should you have any questions or issues with your signature, or send a private message (PM) to a global moderator or an administrator. ^^

Why is the file size max only 500kb for signatures? It is too much of a complication if it exceeds that limit even by a little?

We limit file size to ensure that signatures do not adversely effect page load time, and avoid undue strain on the server. A page full of large file size signatures, particularly in a high traffic forum (like Bleach or Naruto), could potentially hurt load time, and browsing experience, depending on individual internet connection.

Do you want every character included in the finalized avatar? If so, then you have chosen a very inconvenient image for an avatar, because its width > height. Which means you can only cut the left side of the image - where no character is - and then resize it proportionally to the max. allowed width.

The outcome would be something like this:


Doesn't look so good in my opinion. But if you focus on certain characters, you can get better avatars. Well, that's just my opinion. Below you can see some examples.

I generally use resizeimage.net to customize all of my custom made avatars. Sometimes it turns out well, other times i need to make compromises

I use the freeware GIMP 2.8.10. It gets the easy things done, but I don't consider it easy-to-use for beginners. Or maybe I'm just not good enough with it, I'm an amateur after all.

There are two characters with lightning fists. Here is the other one:

Nicely done. I might see if I can learn how to use that software, as I make my own avatars 90% of the time
