Full Version: DreamStation.cc Member Signature Tag & More!
DreamStation.cc Forums > General > General Discussion
cnc137
The owner/member/subscriber signature tags that were originally created by Meteor² and Liquid Designs have become somewhat popular on the Internet and I thought we should join the fun. So, I created the following DreamStation.cc Member signature tag for everyone to use to show their DreamStation.cc membership and support on these forums and others around the web.



To use this on other message boards that allow BB Code you will need to copy and paste the following code into your signature area under your profile on those message boards:

CODE
[URL=http://www.dreamstation.cc/][IMG]http://www.dreamstation.cc/banners/other/dreamstationcc_signature_tag.gif[/IMG][/URL]


If the you want to use the DreamStation.cc Member signature tag on your website or message boards that allow HTML code then use the following:

CODE
<a href="http://www.dreamstation.cc" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.dreamstation.cc/banners/other/dreamstationcc_signature_tag.gif" width="350" height="19" border="0"alt="DreamStation.cc"></a>


I also created the following for practice and because I had not see them online yet:



















If you want to use any of the above I recommend downloading/saving them to your local computer and then uploading them to your favorite web server/photo hosting site to link to from message boards and website around the web. A good image/photo hosting site that I recommend is http://www.flickr.com

No, I DO NOT own a corvette, but my friend does. I am also NOT a National Ski Patrol member, but one of my other friends (ngski) is and he runs http://www.winterheat.net and http://www.bmbwsp.org and I thought he could use it.

I don't have photoshop so I can't do anything. =\
cnc137
Maybe you can do a similar thing using The Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program), but I haven't seen instructions for that.

How do you make it so it alternates.

Like it says : DS Owner then changes to PSP Owner or something

You need to have GIMP, Photoshop etc. I have Photoshop on my comp, but I lost the install disk so Im trying to find an alternative for my dad's comp, so I can use it while I'm surfing the net downstairs. My computer is really slow, so it's difficult. If you get your hands on GIMP, PS, etc. go herefor help. Just scroll down a little.
cnc137
Go here to download The GIMP for free for Windows, since it is an open source package:

- GIMP - Windows Installers

If you need it for Linux or Mac OS X then look here and download the binary files:

- The GIMP - Downloads

To make the images rotate follow the tutorial I have linked in the first post under this thread. It is for Image Ready but The GIMP should have a similar option.

You could also be able to search for "animated gif maker" on http://www.google.com or http://www.download.com to find a program that will help you make animated gifs that will rotate the images above.

I hope this helps!

No problem. Thanks for the links to GameSpot. I added them to the first post under this thread for everyone's reference.

Now I am confused and don't know if Meteor² or Liquid Designs first created these signature tags. I added Liquid Design to the opening paragraph. Maybe someone from Meteor² is actually in Liquid Designs? I have no clue. huh.gif

BTW, here's a few pirate smilies if anybody wants them...

I made one and put it up on Flickr but is just see green and bleu static thingy's
cnc137
If you log into http://www.flickr.com and view the full image you will see above it a bunch of choices. One of them will say "All Sizes" with a magnifying glass. If you click that it will take you to a page that has all the different sizes at the top you can view it in. Click the "Large" one if it is not clicked already and then below the image you will see a section that says "Grab the photo's URL:" This is the URL you need to use to link to the flickr file here or on other message boards and websites. It will look something like this:

CODE
http://static.flickr.com/30/37700374_10a5a85b9a_o.gif


If you take that URL and put into the following code, then you can copy that code into your signature section on the forums to make the image appear.

CODE
[IMG]http://static.flickr.com/30/37700374_10a5a85b9a_o.gif[/IMG]


Here are the results of the above code:



I hope this makes sense and let us know if you have any other questions.

P.S. I got the pirate emoticons working again. pirate_001.gif ARGH!!! biggrin.gif hehe...

So if I do it right
um

And i Always see this aldo I see What I made in photoshop on my Mac

And here's with the file hut

I hope you can see it 'cause some forums have problems with it
cnc137
I see what you are saying now. Yes, I am also seeing the green and blue pixeled image. I don't know how that would happen. Maybe you should try exporting as a gif with different quality and color options? Is the image supposed to be animated? If it is then maybe you are exporting it as a static gif instead of an animated one and that is causing ther problem?

I hope you figure it out but it is kind of hard to diagnose on this end without looking at what you are doing in Photoshop. sad.gif

In other news...

I made another signature tag for all of you NASCAR Fans out there and here it is:



I think I like it but I might tweak it a little if I get time. I wish I could've found a bigger NASCAR logo to make it look even cleaner after I shrank it. I will add this to the first post under this thread for future reference.

cnc137.

P.S. Yes, I know I am the only one that likes the left turn sport here but I made it anyways. tongue.gif
cnc137
Well, I tweaked the NASCAR signature tag to be a little crisper and I created a "American Red Cross Hurricane Relief Donor" signature tag tonight. For more info on the Hurricane Relief one visit the following thread:

Can you make a "I pay ridiculous gas prices" member tag?

But yeah, good work on the tags cnc.

Poof!

I decided that I'd just put all the ones I made up here

I'm sure I'll be adding to it as the days go by.

No Gizmondo love! Maybe a Nintendogs owner tag? ColecoVision owner would rock! I'd put that up as my signature. Pie lover is the only other I want.
Hucast
I wouldn't be advertising the fact that I eat Wendy's if I were you.
CPaladino
I only bit into a finger that once...

I've been meaning to make a nintendog's one.

I'm not sure the gizmondo gets any love. wink.gif

As in added note these sigs should count as lines of text and as such please follow this guideline

QUOTE
# Please also try to keep text signatures under 5 lines so they don't interfere with the viewing of the thread and to reduce scrolling.
Redeema
I hope this isn't just me and my 'puter, but the second one is broken.
CPaladino
Alrighty - dredging up the topic from the past, I made MORE tags.

They can be found by clicking HERE

archer007
Almost all of the links are dead or gone. The top google result for meteor tags in this page! Is there a tutorial left somewhere on the internet??
cnc137
I fixed the Liquid Designs link in the first post, but I haven't found any new links for the other broken ones. sad.gif

If I run across them then I will let you know.

how do i upload a sig from my computer that i made?
archer007
Google lives forever! I found the Meteor tutorial in a Google cache! I dont know how long it'll stay, though. w00t!
archer007
Does anyone know what font is used to make those sigs and where to get it? I tried making one with Arial font, and it looked wrong...
archer007
*bump* Can someone answer my question?!?!
CPaladino
Visitor BRK 8 point font.
archer007
TT1 or TT2? There are 2 versions! Thanks.

I'm trying to make this type of sig using the GIMP, and ot's not easy. BTW, how do you get the text shadows?
archer007
Redema, here is that pie sig:



It's not perfect, as this is my first time doing anything using the GIMP. I still haven't figured out text shadowing. I'll probably improve upon it.
archer007
Does anyone know how to get the text shadows/outline for the font in meteor type sigs in any program?? I've spent 2 frustrating hours trolling the 'Net for GIMP tutorials...
CPaladino
For photoshop it's a drop shadow at like 1 pixel distance.

If anyone desires I can put the template PSD (photoshop document) up - it has guidelines so that all your logos are the same size - and in the same spot, and has the font already to go w/ the proper effects on the layers.

I have ZERO knowledge of gimp though.

-Chris
CPaladino
I updated my tags.

Added a few for CoV, CoH, Descent, and some more will be coming soon:

here
archer007
Yes, please put the template up! That would help me immeasurably. The GIMP can edit Photoshop .psd files, so this is great.
CPaladino
File is available:

HERE

You need the visitor bk font, and make sure the guidelines are turned ON.

I also think this format is Adobe Photoshop CS.

Thanks again,

this one is awesome. it's not in alphabetical order like the other one, but it took me literally half an hour to go through just the gaming section.

I suppose I need to add some of these considering my signature is empty now. sad.gif ::gets to work on that::
