Re: Hi, I'm just a newbie who happens to be a Zelda fan

Welcome to ZU!

Read the Rules and the Newbies Guide to the Universe. Live by them.

If you want a picture in you sig you just do this.

Get a picture that is in the size limits.

Copy the URL and then type this.

[IMG*]put picture URL here[/*IMG]

Without the stars though.

Save and now you have a sig image.

Re: Hi, I'm just a newbie who happens to be a Zelda fan

Hello, my name is BGS. I hope you'll stay with us for awhile, and have a lot of fun here while you're at it. Fallow the rules, and enjoy. As for those pictures you speak of, they are called Signatures (aka: Siggy or Sigg for short). Like OniLink12345 was saying, try looking at what Newbie's Guide to the Universe has to say about Siggies:
Quote:
Signatures
  • Signatures can include one image that is a maximum of 400 x 150 pixels, or two pictures which add up to no more than 400 pixels wide and 150 pixels tall, as well as three lines of text.
  • "Blinkies" (animated images showing text) are counted as images, not text.
  • Smilies are counted as images as well.
  • Signature images must be uploaded to the Internet. www.photobucket.com and www.uploadit.org are two free websites that host images for you, though there are more out there.
  • At the top of all the pages of the ZU Forums, there is a menu bar. Click on "User CP". In that page, you will find an "Edit Signature" link. Click on it. There is a space for entering your signature. To put an image in, you will need to write [*img]your_picture's_URL[*/img]. Click "Save Signature" at the bottom.
And since we're on the subject, let's talk about the Avatars

Quote:
Avatars
  • Your avatar is a picture displayed underneath your username when you post messages. An avatar cannot be larger than 90x90 pixels and 25 kb. Find a picture yourself, or get one from a signature shop in the Signature Shop Forum.
  • To make a picture your avatar, you will need to click on the "User CP" link at the top of the ZU Forums Index, and then the "Edit Avatar" link. This will bring you to the Avatar Selection Screen. From there, you can either enter the URL (web address) of the image, or select and upload it from your computer's hard drive.

More on Signatures & Avatars
  • Images for avatars and signatures should be .jpg, .jpeg, or .gif. Bitmaps and other picture types are generally far too large in size to use. The avatar uploading feature will not let you upload an avatar if it is too large, and signature images that are too large are not good for dial-up users. I don't like bitmap signatures, and I have a fast cable connection!
  • A URL is the web address of a webpage or file. You can see the URL of a webpage in the address bar of your Internet browser, and you can find the URL of a picture, once it's uploaded, by right-clicking on the picture and selecting "Properties". An example of a URL for a picture is "http://members.lycos.co.uk/kokirikid256/imperial.jpg", which is for one of my old signatures.
  • Signature shops and their owners in the Signature Shop Forum make quality images for your signature and avatar needs.
  • Before requesting a sig/avy set, be kind to the sig makers by following the requesting rules.
  • To center something, add in [center] tags. The line should look something like this:

    [*center][*img]http://members.lycos.co.uk/kokirikid256/boat.jpg[*/img][*/center]. The same applies for text, but without the [img] tags.
  • As you may already know from the nifty buttons at the top of the "Post Reply" page, the tag for color is [*color=(insertcolorhere)]. In order to have your links to other web pages a different color, have the [*color] tags inside the [*url] tags. For example:
    [*url=http://www.zeldauniverse.net/main.php?page=msgboard][*color=red]The Rules![*/color][*/url]. Otherwise, the link will still be the default tan color of ZU's links.

Hey! A fellow Hylian!
Hi and welcome, HylianRobert.

Here's the Rules Chant, if any of this stuff hasn't sunk in yet:

Read the rules, don't spam, respect other members, follow the rules, fear the all-powerful mods, read the Newbie's Guide, obey the rules, post a lot, stick around, join a clan, live by the rules, get adopted, and have fun!
