New feature for Sigs

A new idea we wanted to put towards you

Its to basically display things like
  • What games you like or are playing
  • What OS you are using
  • Which consoles you have
  • Which Films you like
  • A LAN user
  • Anything else we can think of

We will provide the images for you
(You will have to request new games or new ideas we haven't thought of)

We should be able to set up the system so in your sig you just type in
something like...
[sig]L4D2 Xbox360 Wii SCP [/sig]
Then this would automatically set the images in your sig (like below)

(just as an idea, we still have to work out how to display the list of all the different icons available)

We have even been messing around with the idea of hyperlinking (automatically) images to something relevant, ie xbox to link about xbox description.

Please note:
The dimensions is roughly what were aiming at
the size (KB) will be smaller per image
This isn't a topic about if you like the images
or what images we should have, its more about the idea its self.

This is how it will look
(also see next post)

The spaces between the images wont be in the final one

Re: New feature for Sigs

the images on display are currently set at around 25kb
we have already got them down to 5kb and should be able to drop that a little more

Re: New feature for Sigs

So is this intended to be instead of a normal sig or in addition?
If it's an extra isn't it going to increase the size of people's sigs unacceptably? We've already had one person complaining about sig sizes this week and tbh you won't have to add much to that to go over the accepted maximum. Once you've got this plus Raptr plus a line or two of text you're going to make a 1 line reply fill half the page.

Re: New feature for Sigs

no, as this is part of the users sig it will count towards the size (it will be instead)

so basically, if they use this, no they cant use additional images (raptr etc)
there isnt that many users using raptr or xfire sigs at the moment,

You would be able to use LAN icons in these banners as well (show how many LANs you have been to)

Re: New feature for Sigs

What could be an idea is having like.. Multiple-Layer Signatures?
So you have your Raptr (etc.) and/or text on one layer, then it could like.. Rotate to reveal this one? I'm not sure on the coding side but yeah, just an idea
