Glo,
move your pixie up to your avatar, go in and erase all of the text in your signature that will eliminate the two clocks, move the history list to your profile and then you will be ready for a) two clocks b) two sig graphics c) one sig graphic and one clock, calgon looses
That's easy for you to say.... when I go to CONTROL CENTER / OPTIONS / AVATAR and click in the space for the info on my avatar, it immediately takes me to MY PICTURES on my pc. But it's not there, and I dont' know how to get it there. sigh... do I need to drag the nerd up here, or is it easier than I think?

Glo, you have to use the upload avatar to upload it to the files section on addicts, then it will show up in the selection area and you can select it as your avatar. It's easy, trust me, I used to be an air raid warden................

I can't even get one out of 3 :(

I got rid of gifs and countdown clock... all I wanted was my cruise history with the corresponding smiley and it says it's over 500 characters! I haven't been on THAT many cruises!!


Edited to ask: How come now it shows up ???? =huh

I have a problem too. I am trying to edit my siggy to take OUT a cruise we cancelled. I delete it, click on "submit" -takes 5 minutes and then the "cannot find this website" thingy comes up =shrug This has happened 4x. Also noticed the "preview" is missing.

Karry what browser are you using. It took forever and a day for me to edit mine using IE6 but on firefox it was fast.

Earl, besides Suer's suggestion that it is slightly big it also contains promotional links back to myspace, these flash countdowns consume a considerable amount of resources.

Herb, have no clue as to why it is showing but without counting the characters, I know that it would allow at least the first fifty and then cut it off, is this showing up completely? or are you missing a few words? Also if you take out the spaces, between the history and the quote, you would probably slide by the 150 height limit, right now it is too tall.

Corky, you need to put your clocks side by side,

Kerry, have sent you a pm

Glo, have sent you a lump of coal, wrapped in a pm

bOB - no matter what I do it makes the Jewel go on the bottom.

This is what I am entering, w/o the **, and with or w/o the comma between the two countdown clocks:

well corky, not sure what you are seeing but what i am seeing is fine

resolution plays a big part in this. if your screen resolution is set at 800X600 the sig is going to wrap, today the normal standard resolution is 1024X768 and this is what I base my requirement on, at 1024X768 your signature meets the requirement. your done.

Ok - hey, that works for me. I guess, like you say, maybe it is because I work off a laptop that it is wrapping on my screen versus going side by side on yours. As long as we are good to then I am glad it is all worked out.

Mucho gracious! :)

okay, I went to "EDIT SIGNATURE".... I got rid of all those ' ~~~~' top and bottom of the Buchwald quote.... clicked submit, and all I get is a pink warning on top that my signature is too big.......................... I KNOW THAT, that's why I'm at the EDIT SIGNATURE part of the forum!! I am trying to make it smaller, just doesn't seem to "accept" my editing.

Herb, what I have found is that if you are exceeding the 500 limit, you will need to delete whatever it takes to bring you inside of 500, then at that point you can start editing. Might have to delete the quote then start editing the signature from there.
We do seem to be having the most issues where signatures were exceeding the limit to start.
