Ta. Just had a random idea to do it yesterday. Had to get it done then and there or it would have bugged me all week.

One problem is that on the official forums there are two background colours. So I had to make it a bloody GIF to make parts of it transparent. If Internet Explorer would support PNGs properly I could have used that instead.

Now I need to apply the same theme to a bunch of avatars.

Off-topic: Apologies for my, uh, 'subtle flaming' earlier. But you must see where I'm coming from. Not warning me of what you were doing is one thing, but not telling d4sh, well...

I'm just expanding the range of sigs, using this thread to test them. Give me a moment and I'll bung them all into a random image script so you can see all of them by refreshing the page.

I wouldn't normally do this, but *shrugs* it's a sig forum.











What's your favourite? Wink

My actual sig does rotate now. Wink Well, every time the image is requested it serves up one of the five at random. Like my avatar.

No you do not bloody outrank me. Razz

I created versions of the five sigs using the darker grey of the official forums, which is used for all but the first post of a thread. Which means my sig looks fine on there unless I start a thread. Wink

Excellent Sigs, I loove them!! What do you think about a crew sig for our little Aggregator, based on this design?

Sure. If any fellow Aggregatorians (uh, I might think of a better name for us later) want a sig like this, send along a full-screen screenshot of themselves against a suitable background (leaving enough room to the right so it spans the entire 500 pixels).

procurator@greyfusion.net

You know my feelings on crew/faction sigs, though, so I won't force people to use the crew sig. Wink

See, there are still people that want similar sigs!
And if it happens to be per hvcft, that's awesome!
*requests Algorithm-basic*
I prefer the one at the bar Proc.

I've changed my sig range a little by narrowing the gap between the components, as someone on the official MxO forums suggested.

I've also changed all my scripts so that most browsers will receive a lovely PNG with perfect colours and perfect transparency (works on any background colour), while Internet Explorer gets an ugly GIF with shitty colours and poorer transparency.

The GIFs require a matte colour so the anti-aliasing works (which is why d4sh's sig and Bit's avatar had white around them at the start). With different forums using different background colours, I've had to make different sig ranges using different matte colours. For example, proc_sig_00.png will direct IE to GIFs with a matte colour of #000000 (black, like this forum), while proc_sig_33.png will direct IE to GIFs with matte colour #333333 (dark grey, in between the two shades of grey used on the official forums).
