Is this even possible?

I've tried BBcode [scroll] and html methods with no result. There is an excellent thread here in this forum by Loam on BBcode but it does not address scrolling. I also did a search with no help.

I'm thinking I might be doing something wrong script wise.

Any idears?

Scripts such as for scrolling text and similar things are probably disabled board wide due to potential for malicious code also being added.

yeah dont do it, animated avatars are one thing, but scrolling text and stuff - not worth it for the majority.

Create a transparent GIF image with scrolling text.

I have been here for just over 4 years and have all kinds of site experience. I have never seen anyone with scrolling text in their signatures. I have seen animated avatars, but that is it.

I don't know that they have any code on this site, to allow for such a thing. If so, I think you would find most people objecting to it, as a distraction. I would not be surprised of ATS has such a thing blocked/disabled.

A lot of people don't even like the moving avatars.

Hmm, I guess a lot of us are dull


It would not bother me, so much as be a distraction for me. But I would not object to you or anyone else having scrolling text in their signature.

It's may be possible, I just do not know and have never seen the BBcode to make it happen.

Seems to be a forum faux pas. I'll have to reconsider doing this.

Thanx for sharing. Got respect for you long time ATS members.

I'll chalk this idea up as a bad move.

Thank you, but at the end of the day, I am just a member. I don't consider myself or any other member, more special than any other.


So, for what it is worth, I've much respect for you as well.

I don't think it is a bad idea. Just different, truth be told. Different can be good. But different can also freak people out until they get used to it.

I used to consider moving avatars a distraction. When I first joined only one member that I can recall, had one. Now several do. I got used to it.

So, yeah, scrolling text would probably distract me, but I would get used to it and probably hardly even notice it, after a while.

Honestly, if you can figure out a way to do it, I say give it a try. Who knows, it may grow on people. For what that is worth.

Also, if you have any questions or what have you, you are always welcome to send me a U2U


Peace and love.
