    Well, the old one is gone, a legend in it's time. Here's the thread reborn.

    Sticky!

    Let's see if I can remember the How to request Sigs & Avatars 101:

    You see those fancy Signatures and Avatars? Want one for your very own? Here are a few suggestions on how to get one in no particular order.

    1. Be polite. If you're new to TGG.com, introduce yourself, say hello and be kind. No one likes a pushy fellow.

    2. Leave a message here asking for want you want. Be specific as it actually helps the sig maker out. Teams, players, colors, text, ideas, etc.. The more they know the better your item will be.

    3. Provide pictures.
    There are times where that can be demanding and time consuming to the item's maker.

    4. These people don't get paid for doing this. It's their own time to make something for you. Remember to thank the person who made your item. It makes them want to make more and it's just plain decent.

    5. Minor changes and/or a new sig after a bit are fine, but don't become a constant issue. No one likes a nag.

    6. Don't PM people to get your sig or avatar. They will respond to you via the thread or PM.

    7. Be patient. Sig & Av makers usually take care of the people who have been here a while before they take care of new people. Don't take it personally. No one wants to make things for people they hardly know yet.

    8. Enjoy!

    Ah, the new digs here are nice!!

    Graphics forum rocks. We got some excellent sig makers here. We're always learning and making new things, so jump right in and contribute.

    How to get your Sig to display:


    1. Obtain your sig.

    You need to save your sig somewhere on your computer, like your desktop or a folder you use.

    2. Host your Sig. Got to imageshack or photobucket and host your photo. Click "Browse" to get your pic from the location on your computer and the click "Host It" to upload it to their site.

    Then get your photos URL location and copy it (highlight and then Control + C).

    3. From your User CP, choose "Edit Signature"

    4. Click this button
    [​IMG]

    and paste the URL into it like so

    5. Save it and it should work.

    OK, I asked for a Mets sig before the board went down, and never got it. Here's what I want: For some reason it won't let me post an image, so you just have to click on the links.

    Also the words "Are you ready?" In a cool font.

    Thanks!

    OK I see how this finally works now. If anyone could hook it up with a Jon Vilma sig. That would be greatly appreciated.

    For colors the Jet green. If it could be bold and grab peoples attention that would be awesome.

    Sorry dont have any pictures or anything. Just a sweet one of him doing something tight.

    If its not specific enough just let me know THANKS

    I was thinking of getting rid of Kermit temporarily because things aren't going so bad in Jetland right now, but it's kinda my identity, the thing that makes me stick out from all the other good posters. So I don't know if I want to get rid of him. Can you or someone else just make me the sig?

    If possible i want all of them on one sig with my user name in cool black font across the top I want the section of the sig with Curtis Martin to have a green background I want the section with Stephon Marbury to have an orange background and the Section with Martin Broduer with a red background than if possible next to the Curtis Martin section I want the Jets Logo then next to the Stephon Marbury one I want the Knicks logo then next to the Yankees one i want the yankees logo than next to the Devils one i want the devils logo. Im sorry if this might be too hard for you i could make it more simple. But if you make it for me i promise i wont bother you for a new sig for months.

    Wow... the old sig/avvy thread. Might very well be the biggest lost in the reboot.
