Could everyone please just read the rules. They are not that hard. I don't mind helping here and giving up my valuable time but I do wish everyone would at least try to do it on their own first.

Not only do I want to win, I also do not want to lose.

Purkle if you go to your USER CP, click on EDIT OPTIONS, scroll down to where it says 'Messaging & Notification' and put a check beside ' Receive Email from Other Members', scroll to the bottom and click on 'save changes'. This will allow people to email you at the address you provided to OLS when you registered (which you can also change). Now when people click on your little green button they will have the choice to being able to email you. I hope that helps with the email problems.
As for size of a signature greenthings did a great visual with this:

which shows you exactly how big you can have a signature.
For example if you take my heart signature here:

I am in compliance because if you right click your mouse on the picture and select 'properties' you will see that it tells you the size and the height/width of it, mine is 9172 bytes (limit is 12,000) and is 161x97 (limit is 350x100). So comparing my signature with greenthings visual you will see about how much room I have left to the right to put something if I desired to, but you still have to stay under the 12,000 bytes total.

I have made alot of signatures lately and the more intense the graphics are the more bytes you are using, some of them I have made are really cool looking but just too big to use on OLS.

You can pm me if you need more help.

don't judge my path if you haven't walked my journey

Ok, Nickyle thank you. My ticker was exactly the size of that square in your thread. So it must have been my e-mail was making it too much.

Ok mods, bare with me. I am gonna go make another ticker, come back and ask if it is ok or not. Thanks --Be Right Back

That is awesome greenthings and nicklyle!

I have noticed that when you send a graphic through yahoo, it is higher in bytes in the process of sending it than it actually is .

I need snazzed up!
I am looking for a siggy that writes a name with lipstick?
I mentioned to Lifesfun that I wish all the gurus would get together and make a forum for us "challenged" people to learn and have fun too.

Well.....everybody has vanished....I know everybody is busy, this is just making me nuts at this point wondering if I am in the clear.. I am going crossed eye-waiting on an answer, this siggy thing I hope is resolved. if I get offline I can't wait around forever, but if I get offline and it is not an okay signature just post that it is not and I will remove it when I come back. If it is ok, please tell me so I wont have to keep checking this thread constantly when I am here. Thank you.


But if it is not okay then tell me how to make it ok. Thanks

Hi Purkle, your ticker is currently 408 pixels in width, and the max we allow is 350 in width. So it is over the limit.

Looks fine to me. Limit for text is 90 characters a line with font size 2, and your max looks like 78 with a smaller font size you're good to go!

Is my siggy in compliance? I have read and re-read and re-read and re-read the siggy rules and I'm sure that I'm in compliance but I would like a MOD to tell me for sure. The pic is under the pixel/kb limits. The text is under the character per line limit and the over all siggy size is under 5 lines.

Thanks for your help.
