Ask for help with your signature here!
This thread reserved for those that need help getting their signature into compliance ~ feel free to help your fellow OLS'ers out!!

Edit Signature: http://www.online-sweepstakes.com/fo...=editsignature

All signatures must follow these guidelines:
  • A signature may contain a maximum of 2 images and/or smilies.
  • Images in signatures can be no larger than 100 pixels in height, 420 pixels in width and 12k in size. If your signature contains 2 graphics, their combined file size must be 12k or less.
  • Signatures should take up no more screen space than the equivalent of 5 lines of normal sized text (size=2) with a maximum of 90 characters per line. The screen space that your signature occupies includes all graphics and blank lines. Therefore, the bigger the graphic(s) in your signature, the less space you're going to have available for text. Use of a smaller font size (size=1) will allow you to squeeze in an extra line or two.
  • Font size should not exceed 3. Keep in mind, that the bigger font size will mean that your signature will take up more screen space which is still subject to the original space limitation of 5 lines of normal sized text (size=2).
  • You can provide a link to your web site and/or win page in your signature. However, affiliate and referral links through which you stand to gain monetarily are not allowed, this includes links to web pages that are mostly affiliate or referral links.
  • Referral links or vote for me requests for sweepstakes and contests are generally permissible, but the links must not be deceptive.
  • Signatures must also be in compliance with all other rules of the forums.
You can find the guideline link here.

JPEG into signature
How do I insert a JPEG image to my signature? I want to add my license plate to my signature like others have done.

OK - so it has to be a web address inbetween the IMG. How exactly did you get your license plate to save in there? Thanks!

Right click on the license plate
Select "save picture as"
Type what you want the picture saved as
Click ok
Go back and edit the picture to follow the OLS Guidelines as Kbsocial has in post #1

If you don't already have a photo host on your computer go to www.photobucket.com and sign up
Once signed up you will see a box at the top with the word "browse"
Click browse
Find the license plate you want here at OLS
Click OK
Let it do its thing
When it is done scroll to the bottom of the page
You will see your picture
Copy the IMG address photobucket has provided for you
Come back to this thread and click on the link kbsocial has provided in the #1 post OR go to USER CP, edit signature
Paste the IMG address
Click submit
You are done

I messed up the link by my signature - help please!
OK - Ms. Computer Guru ( ) tried to change the link to "My wins" and screwed it all up. It used to have 2004 WINS and I now want to change it to "MY WINS" but didn't quite get it right.

Any advise on how to fix my error would be appreciated. Thank you!

this is where you need to go to start a thread called "stargazer's wins" or what ever you want to call it http://www.online-sweepstakes.com/fo...splay.php?f=43
Next, open up "user cp" , then "edit signiture"
once the edit signiture is open, it will look just like a a reply box...look for the blue world with a piece of chain link in front of it (just under where you can choose font, font size and color). click it and a box will pop up, asking what you want the text to say..this is where you type in "My Wins" or "Stargazers Wins"..click ok, the next thing it wants is a URL, this is where you paste the URL to the thread you just started in the winners lists. hit ok, and it will put everything you need into the message box, preview your post to make sure it is what you want, then submit reply, and you are done!
