    W1z,

    I am creating this thread soley to ask if you'd be kind enough to enable support for this site's Sig Banners: http://bfbc2.elxx.net/sigg-o-matic.php

    I thought I remembered TPU supporting similar banners for CoD4, Xfire and similar, and am just hoping we can add support for this title too. Not much more to it really, just hoping to be able to see my updated stats in my TPU sig is all. I'm sure other users agree and hopefully they'll post in support, and hopefully it's not a problem to add support for, afterall I don't want to hinder TPU in any way for a simple game stats banner.

    Some websites spread virus, bad stuffs through these things. Or advertising their own website (sig is linked?). So this is up to Wizz.

    I do support the idea though.

    Yep, and so far on my Clan forum there have been no issues with the banner, but that doesn't mean much considering we get waaaaay lower volume visitor-wise than TPU does. We'd be a pretty small and useless target.

    But so far things seem ok with this site and it's BC2 stat banners, I'm sure there'll be quite a few more like it very soon.

    PVT is fighting against the good fight, I say we fill the TPU American side, stick him on the Russians and do a 16 v 1! OFF WITH IS HEAD!

    Error
    Due to overwhelming demand, signature creation is not available right now. We are performing some server upgrades to deal with this, so please check back again in a few hours.

    looks like the guys didnt think that through

    Me too, i believe the average internet bandwidth today is more than sufficient to handle up to 100kb sigs
    Hehe, w1zz is playing the ubi/ea card :roll:

    I got that same error when I went to check the site out.

    however, I would very much appreciate banner support.

    Site is still up, it does only update once every 24 hours, but it'd still be something very cool to have floating around in some fellow TPU-er's sigs!

    so there must be another way because the sigs apparently include correct stats

    You would have to try someone that hasnt done it before, because they probably still have the stats that got requested on there server, because i tried at first at school but the site they get it from is blocked, so it didnt work, i went on my blackberry got the stats, went on the computer and they were there.
    So that would be my guess in how some guys still have there stats.
