Kasmira,

Umm, my marqee writing is not working. is this disabled also?

Marqee, Shadow, and Glow are disabled for everyone (except Admins as the software will not let me disable them for admins) as many people consider them highly annoying.

Test

Jorgath, Your avatar looks nice, but it has two issues. One, it's a little too wide, so it side scrolls, and two, the file size is too large it needs to be 8kb or below, and yours is 13.2kb.
The width should be no more than 100 px.

If you need help resizing it, let us know and someone can help.

Unless he's changed it since I last saw it, it's one of our standard server-hosted avatars and hence not a violation. Eventually, I will resize them all to fit our guidelines, but that is a low priority thing at the moment.

Jorgath,

Just a note...  The color and size tags in your sig are not going to work.  We've disabled those functions because people when used in normal messages, they make text very hard for most of our members to read.  Unfortunately, there's no way to disable them for messages but enable them for sigs.  Sad

Oh that's why I couldn't make the little "text picture" design in my sig bigger! lol I tried...

Just a thought-

I know all of the fancy fonts and other annoying tags are turned off, etc.  Randall has mentioned that unfortunately this means that these fonts and other effects are also not available for sigs. 

A way around this limitation might be to request help in the Avatar Help thread.  Those of us with graphics programs can convert text to a graphic, in which case the limitations on fonts, colors, etc. wouldn't apply.  The resulting "text" image would be used just like any other image in a sig.

This is pending approval from the hosts, of course.  Randall, do you have any objection to this workaround?

Star shrunk it and gave me directions on what I needed to do - and I remembered my photobucket account password - which is amazing since the only other thing in it is my sig from the other board!

So long as sigs and avatars meet our physical size and file size limits, there is no problem with this.

Avatar test.

(I'm 99 44/100 % sure it matches the parameters; mostly, I'm just making sure nothing fouled up along the way, and seeing how it looks on a post.)

It looks great!  (And, yeah, does match the parameters.)
