Have a look at my signature.

That's what I'm talking about.

Usage:
[img]https://www.foxinflame.tk/dev/MALembed/USERNAME[/img]


Change USERNAME with your MAL username.

Any feedback is welcome!

Edit: Created website with explanation, history, and a live editor.


I created this small project because I wanted something that would display the anime list. A month after creation, I learned about the official Signature feature. Well then. But even that wasn't that full featured as my project.

I wanted to do that too, but then, dark green on dark blue for Watching was just plain horrible, and blue on blue for Completed was invisible.

I might make the Completed light blue, and Watching light green.

I'll work on that. Parameters would be good, right?

Something maybe like /USERNAME?background=HEXCOLOR&watchingText=HEXCOLOR...

Looks like a nice, but the background could use some work. Solid colors just aren't appeasing nowadays, especially on a white site layout.

I'm just a bit scared, that if I use pictures, the text isn't going to be able to be read.

You could have different options for the background, even adding a basic variable like &color=#whatever would do the job and everybody'd be able to choose the color they want.
Anyhow, interesting idea, I believe I did something similar but with score distribution a long time ago.

Update:

Now features anime characters!
Insert one of the predefined anime characters on the side!

Also colors as well! Enter a hex color code as a parameter (more on website) and make it colorful!




Made a website for explanation.

Edit:
Wow, the signature and this makes my eyes go.... nuts.

So whatever you did to get those characters to appear on there. Could you do that but have it cover the entire background?

Something along these lines? (Couldn't get the image to scale properly; I'll just have the images hosted on my server, already scaled)

Update:

Pictures as backgrounds! Use your own by providing a Imgur picture id or choose one of the default 4! If you are going to upload your own picture, it will be scaled, so it's better to create one with the aspect ratio of 25:8 (400x128).

More explanation and usage on the website.

Another cool update!

Shadows! Useful for when the text is hard to read on lighter backgrounds, like the default4 one!

Check the website on how to use it.

You should make it so that people can add any character at the corner of the signature if they know how to make one that fit.

I don't think I'll do that.
I had to manually change the position pixel by pixel for each character, for they have different edges and sizes even after the original image is resized.

Blame it on the free hosting service. I'm too broke to afford a paid server.

Well, if this gets big enough, I doubt no one will be kind enough to donate some cash to afford a monthly server service. And you also need to keep in mind the profile badges that'll come up.... soon. That's definitely something you'd want to put here.

Any idea how much you need pay to make this run smoothly though? Perhaps I can help?

@FoxInFlame, @julyan, you can get a decent (1TB bandwidth, but it's more of a soft limit currently, i.e. they don't charge you if you go over it) server on DigitalOcean for ~$5 a month - that's not really a fortune.
Also, GitHub offers $50 in credits through their Student Developer Pack if you happen to have an .edu email lying around.

Sounds like a good deal. And I doubt we'll need more than 1TB a month even if the number of user grows quite reasonably.

Unfortunately, my uni never gave us an edu email, just a custom email from google which I rarely used xD

Let me say a few points.

1. I don't own an edu email address. Since I'm not in the US, I only get a custom domain Google account.
2. I don't have a credit card. Nor a bank account. I'm pretty young. XD
3. I'm just broke in pocket money because I buy too much junk food and useless stuff which I regret buying later.
4. It could also be slow because I didn't take time to perfect the code. I don't know how to perfect it anyway. I just used my basic knowledge.
5. Never heard of profile badges. Any details/information that I can look into?

I'll try to keep it going on my current server until it hits a point where it can no longer handle all the bandwidth. Then I'll just end the project, simply put.
