This is a continuation of http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=4410

Basically, "Post here if you've made a new signature you want to show off, if you have any questions or need any tips on creating your own signatures, and to compliment others on their hard work!"

Be nice!

you decided to change the sig to php or just get rid of the updates entirely? looks better without the random box though

To not muck up the first post:

orbi said:
errr, like I said earlier, there's no way to change it, it's just a flaw that shows up in firefox for users with windows and doesn't have any issues in other browsers. aside from lowering the colors like ruka did, it will ALWAYS show up in firefox, there's nothing you can do about it aside from making a scripted sig like mine


So if this is a mac problem, can I make my signature on my PC? I have both available (I suddenly just remembered since I don't use my netbook much).

I do not understand php, I do not want a server, and I like simple and I don't want to invest any time into learning php.

That box that some of you can see looks really terrible and wasn't intentional, there is supposed to be no noticeable difference at all. So I may just get rid of updates entirely if I can't work it out, I guess.

So later I'll open up my pc and see if I can fix it there or something.

I think I figured it out No. I checked on my PC.

I will fix it later on my pc I guess.

FINAL EDIT: fuck it, honestly what I have now is more interesting than my stupid recent updates, and at least it should be all one colour.

well, the inherent problem is that the script or whatever that xinil uses to code the MAL sig portion changes the properties of that slice so that it looks lighter on IE and darker on firefox for windows users. this means that if you lighten it up for firefox users, IE users will notice a lighter box, and if you keep it as is, IE users will be fine but firefox users will see a darker box.

there's really no workaround to the problem as of right now, don't know anyone who has gotten full compatibility with an MAL sig like yours, only with people who actually draw in a box. another thing would be to create a scripted sig, or ask someone to script it for you if you don't want to go through the hassle. I could script it if you want, doesn't take more than a few minutes.

Minor changes done, i made the text go behind the render, and changed the title code so that it's always centered around the "pumpernikkeli's updates" part, unless it's long enough string to go out from edges.

Damn, took way longer than it should have, so long time not doing any PHP <.<

Also; i wonder how many days it takes this time for me to see my avatar... i know it's there but i can't see it yet, through proxy it shows correctly already.
lol, and right after i said the above it's there <.<

@ pumpernikkeli - a workaround to the avatar problem is to save your new avatar as a file type different from the one you're switching from. so if you previously had a .gif avatar, save your new one to .png or .jpg to see it instantly change. I usually use .jpg for solid avatars, .png for avatars with opacity, and .gif for animated ones only so that it's easier to switch.


Ah, i see. that's good to know :P

So if the file type is different, it would show instantly?

I don't know why my FF does not have this problem. *shrug*

I think what it is now is fine, I don't really want anyone wasting their time. ;_;

Thank you everyone, stupid xinil. >:M

yea - as long as you haven't recently changed your avatar. the reason why it takes so long to change is that your old avatar has a cache, and that's where the problem comes in. instead of instantly changing it, it still refers back to the cached image until the cache is replaced with the new avatar.

with the other file types, there is nothing stored in the cache, so your new image gets written to the cache instantly and it's bye bye old avatar. I think MAL keeps the cache for a day or 2, so you can use this trick to wait for the cache of the other file type to clear out if you don't want to use jpg or gif files more than you have to.

Of course! When it uploads the avatar it saves it with the name "username.filetype" so regardless of what your new avatar is named it will still rename it when uploading it to the server. But if you change the file type, you would change the name of the image on the server, thus the cache would be cleared... I can't believe I didn't see this earlier >_>

@ESSWHY: Now you know what I meant, sry didn't mean to confuse you. :)

@Lailai-kun: Cute one, but there is no link in your sig and there are 2 black or blue lines in your sig that aren't visible in normal MAL but in Night MAL. D: http://i43.tinypic.com/28ajq6r.jpg

interesting... i had problems rendering since my magic wand tool and my paint bucket tool were a little bit jiffy, something screwed my photoshop up or i just havnt been using it for a while.

all i know is that around the characters the most of the white isnt 255 255 255, meaning if i took the white background off and looked at it in night mal ud get a disgusting slob of white patches around since i added a 3px stroke to a horribly rendered picture.

ya i found the lines, theyre just transparent, apparently when i tried to paint a completely empty layer, not all of it went white, meaning my photoshop is somewhat bugged so i was rite.

anyways i do use dark mal its awesome and heres what it looks like with a black BG



oh and note, the white around the chars ignoring the stroke, is not perfectly white and with a random photoshop bug its a pain to renda so i got lazy.

Orbii's purple night MAL's still the best. :) Love ya Orbiiiiii! <3333 Doesn't matter how many 'i's i add, does it :O

Cute lallide. I noticed the white bg when you first put it up, but knowing you, must be some reason for it :) Prefer the current one with white border anyhow.

Preferrably something that's about 50px shorter in both dimensions.

but i like the text positioning on the bottom one.
