If you go into the "member settings" area of ATS and click on the "Account Settings" feature you can alter your "Signature".

But unlike the "Avatar preview" there is no "signature preview". So when we make alterations to our signatures we have to go back and forth between pages... like we had to do with the avatars before the staff made the great improvement.

My question is: Could we also make a preview section on the account settings page for Signatures?

Is this a stupid idea?

I just wanted some feedback on this... which is why I didnt use the suggest/complain button.

Thank you for your time,

tone

I have tried repeatedly, and the signature function that previously worked now does not.

Off subject, but i figured i might as well...

Nice Idea but you can always just play around.
Mind you TONE23 I think you must have a degree in BB code for your sig m8 as I said before most impressive.

Alot of people take almost as much time and care in their sigs as they do with their avys. Which is why thought this would be a helpful tool in the account settings area.

With the problematic nature of browsers like Internet Explorer (which I honestly do prefer over the rivals), I like to edit my sigs in a notepad program.

Its much easier to space out the code and play around with before getting it just right.

does that take bb code?

Yes, TONE, i agree with you. Its a wonderful idea.

I hope they come up with something.

All you need to do is compile the sig and then preview it in a reply window. This will render the bbcode and allow you to see it before you edit your profile. When everything is right copy the code from the reply window and paste it to your sig box.

I think that half the fun is playing around with it.

well of course it is... this would just make it a bit more "user freindly"
And,if anyone here can attest to your statement it would be me.

I think, though, that a preview area would also help some of the newer members who are otherwise intimidated in the whole process. Maybe it would have a legend next to it with a bbcode table or something of that sort.

In the meantime I liked Kinglizards approach the best..
