    so the images have to be regenerated twice a day from data retrieved from a server.

    here's the sad part,

    tpu is communist! gotta use the sigs from them, can't get them from anywhere else.

    if you do use the sig, it won't update and will be fixed. you can't hotlink the sig...

    i found out this the hard way ,when i was gearing up to work to make super awesome custom dynamic f@h and what not badges.. and then found out it wont be possible...

    I think we should ban pictures in sigs altogether, but I know I'm pretty alone to think that.

    Did anyone write to W1zzard on this? I do not know if anyone did or not so I did because these things are awesome signatures. I'll show mine off here. :rockout:

    Well, they take up space, they clutter things, more shinys for the eyes to go to. I hate it when a forum page is more than 50% sigs.

    Woohoo! Awesome and thank you W1zzard!!! :rockout::rockout::rockout: Oh and I wrote to SNURK on the WCG site but he will have to reply to you as there are no PM's or emails in profiles there. Just posts in threads. Hopefully he will come here and talk to you W1zzard.

    I asked him to add my name to the list, but how do find out where the graphic is? He can't email me and I didn't see anyone else giving contact information.

    Thanks.

    It is the same address for the graphic but it has your account number in the end with the '.gif'. That is what makes it yours like the CPUZ stuff. Works the same way.

    'http://i1007.photobucket.com/albums/af195/wcgsig/636363.gif' <--- here is mine. The 636363 is my account number for WCG (I know cool huh) He will add you to the list and you will see it in his posts by coming back and checking on it. Takes about a day.

    Not alone lol I'm on mobile broadband (about 30Kb/s down 3Kb/s up) that's why I link pics in threads (FS, etc.) so I can check on them easier.

    Signature requested :)

    Will have to wait and see what the result of only having one PC crunching when I am at home after work and weekends. can't afford to run the PC any longer than that:eek:
    But every little helps;)
