Would someone explain to me how to tweak the sigs? I do not know much about spacing and I want to fix the box on the right hand side of my sig.

Edit: Specifically how do I center align my box, and make it above my text?

Current Sig Code is here
Code: Select all
[floatright][box][align=center]Def Con
[color=#0000BF]1 2 3 [u]4[/u] 5[/color][color=orange]
Alert Status[/color][/align][/box][/floatright]Allies: [nation]Tipidemica[/nation], [nation]Trektopolis[/nation] || Enemies: [region]The Black Hawks[/region] || Alignment: [color=blue]Defender[/color]

They are hexadecimal values which provide instruction to the system on what colour to display. #0055bb gives you a shade of blue.

If you need a colour palette generator, this one uses images you provide a URL to (click here).

Furthermore, clicking the "font colour" button gives you a pallette to choose from. For example, if I want a dark green I can have it.

You don't. Your text box was floated and right-aligned specifically because it took up too much space above the other text. The only way I know to make those nice small boxes is to use the float tags, which only come in floatleft and floatright. Leaving off the float tags generates a box that runs the width of your sig, which would create a ton of white space that would distract others from reading forum pages.

There's probably a way to do something with Table codes, but I really wish you wouldn't. It looks fine now.

Float-left might be a preferred option, but then I'd recommend doing a Float-right or a center alignment with the rest of the sig text. (Alternately, the current sig could be reworked with a center alignment on the rest of the text, as well.)

If you'd like boxes on each side - with, perhaps, your Allies, Enemies, Alignment content in such a box? - that's a doable option, as well.

That was me. It appeared to have too much whitespace, and I'm afraid I got carried away. The stupid Spoiler tags take up 1.5-2 lines each and won't post side by side without float tags, so I floated them all on the same line to save space.

While we allow up to 8 lines, some of us (well, me for sure) don't like seeing all that extra space between posts. It distracts from the flow of the thread, and the only possible benefit I can see is the ego of the poster. I did a spin through the Forums and trimmed a bunch of close-to-the limit sigs.


No problem, I was just weirded out and thought something happened to the forum or that I was losing my mind.

A heads up would've been nice, but meh, you're doing your job, I suppose.

EDIT: I re-tweaked it to my taste. Hopefully it doesn't "distracts from the flow of the thread" or whatever reason you had to mess with it in the first place.

I need assistance: is my current signature exceeding/reaching the 7 lines mark?

I am wondering, since it'll most probably be different for computer/laptop screens with less width. Sorry for this, I just don't want to be reported (in case if its above the limit or reaching the limit). :p

It's about 4.5-5 on my screen, which means you still have loadsa room. Spoilers count for 1.5-2 lines.
Removing the text from people's sigs doesn't make it any less true. I stand with Yalta.

Yes, as you were told via TG earlier. The quotes spoiler isn't the problem - it's your massive flag and the boxed quote at the top.

I hope it's okay to ask this here... but I can't find the right code...

How do you change the text from "show spoiler" to something you want? Katganistan has just a box that reads "favorite quotes" and I'd like to clean my stuff up so there's only two or three small spoiler boxes on the same line... RP, Fact book and maybe one other.

Thank you ten times over! Is there a link somewhere that lists all usable codes?

For future reference, the FAQ is useful to read.

I'd shift all the spoilers to the right and align them properly. Also, that "Great Souled" nonsense got at least one player deleted for trolling. Is that something you really want to continue using?
