Yeah, it's fine. I removed one unnecessary blank line to make it all even, but it's otherwise fine.

Folks, you don't need to ask "Is mine legal?" when it is patently obvious that it's less than 8 lines. The spoiler itself counts as 2-3 lines depending on use, but the content under the spoiler doesn't count towards the length limit.

Thanks for the clarification. Thanks.

If I were to add one more line, and then spoiler it, would I be under the limit, or over?

Over. You're currently at 7 lines. Depending on where you put it, any spoiler would add 2-3 lines. Spoilers are for hiding multiple rows of text, not one liners.

I need help. I can't seem to get the two spoilers parallel to each other while on the second line of the sig, vertically centered. Can someone please help? And, you know, all the other messed up code on my current sig.

No worries, just wanted to let you know I think I managed to manually create what you're looking for:

Code: Select all
[align=center][box][b]WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH[/b][/box][spoiler=Stuff]•  Minister of Foreign Affairs of [region]Sildoria[/region]
•  Aspiring WA author
•  Nerdy nerd[/spoiler][spoiler=More stuff]•  Ideology is either radical centrist or authoritarian social democrat. Which one, I may never know.
•  Semi-experienced at both gameplay and roleplay.
•  Nerdy nerd[/spoiler][/align]

Also, I know you said you were looking for vertical centering, but I created another option that is horizontal if you like it any more:

Code: Select all
[align=center][box][b]WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH[/b][/box][/align][floatright][spoiler=More stuff]•  Ideology is either radical centrist or authoritarian social democrat. Which one, I may never know.
•  Semi-experienced at both gameplay and roleplay.
•  Nerdy nerd[/spoiler][/floatright][floatleft][spoiler=Stuff]•  Minister of Foreign Affairs of [region]Sildoria[/region]
•  Aspiring WA author
•  Nerdy nerd[/spoiler][/floatleft]

On a last note, I'd advise you to update your sig before posting anywhere else, because it appears your current code is making the boards a tad crosseyed. Thanks!

(final edit: if either set of code can be further fixed in any way, I hope Fris or other staff chimes in. But let me/us know if you need any additional help though!)

Thank you so much! I can't copy and paste right now (I'm on a kindle), so I'm just going to delete my current sig and implement the new one tomorrow!

Sure thing, be aware though that I did tighten up both sets of code to make them as short as possible, so remember to fetch the updated code whenever you go to change your sig (unless staff take care of it beforehand)

That works, but I've edited it directly to make it cleaner. The key is the sequence of tags. For some reason, you need the [floatright] section first, then the [floatleft], then the [align=center]. They all need to be on the same line without line breaks/enter/returns.

Right on, I was trying to keep it as close to their original design as I could, but I will remember this going forwards - thanks!

Quite a quotable quote. Now, how about I quote it on my sig and since I'm on F7 alot you will be able to be even more famous in exchange for some legendaries ;)

Anyone here know how to get the motivation to make a signature?

The key to getting motivation is to just make something up and stick with it/improve it over time. I made mine up on the fly some time ago.
I exist, and so do you.
