    Images in signatures for Premium / Folding members

    As per members' requests, we've added Images in Signatures as an additional perk to Premium / Folding / SETI members. It involved some hacking of the vB code, and the solution might not be very obvious, but here is how it works:

    In the User CP, under "Edit Profile" you will find an option called "Signature Image". If you enter the URL of an image there, it's going to appear right above your text signature. It still requires non-empty text signature to have the option to add signatures to posts at all.

    Note that it will only work for Premium / Distributed Computing members that have signed up as per these instructions: http://forums.speedguide.net/showthread.php?t=141335

    Premium members have the option of using their SG hosting space to host signature images as well.

    We reserve the right to disable this feature if abused by members.

    If you have any questions about the feature, please post in this thread.


    Enjoy !


    Edit: I'm working on another feature for Folding members that will allow for dynamic auto-updating images in signatures that show their folding scores...

    Here is the "beta" version of sig images (find your name if you're in the SG Team and use it as a signature image wherever you want):

    Nice one Philip. I might get with you about this in the future to get the code to hack it on my site also.

    OK who's the whiz at making banners to fit in there.....if we can get several banners to choose from.
    1)Something like "Team Speedguide Folding"
    2)Something like "Speedguide Game Server"
    3)Something like "Speedguide Premium Member"
    and perhaps some others are reflect various combinations.

    I did that once before, everyone linked to my images and I ended up with a $500 bandwidth overage on my personal webspace with my ISP.

    That sucked big time

    Many thanks for hacking the code to make this possible Philip. It's sure to make a few people very happy I'm sure.

    THANK YOU! YOU ROCK!


    and sorry if I offended anybody with my previous brash request.....it was pure sarcasm although my request was serious and not to be taken as spam.

    Hopefully, this will attract more people to help Fold...that is my number 1 reason for asking. If it also get smore people to buy premium memberships, that is also very cool.

    So hopefully, people take advantage of this privilege while others see the benefits of folding/premium membership.

    Now it's time for a contest and I will host it.

    You're welcome, we try to do what we can.

    I have been working on another feature all afternoon, here is the "preliminary" result:

    If you're folding for team SG, you can use the auto-updating images from here: http://www.speedguide.net/folding/sig/

    The images/background are not finalized, still working on the code and rotation, so use at your own risk When finished, they'll update daily to reflect your new ranking. I'm open to suggestions for improving it...
