Set-Up Your Message Board Settings And Signatures

To add your signature, go to “Settings”


Click on the “Message Board” tab


Signatures cannot be taller than 144 pixels (two inches), and Flash is not allowed in your signature.

You can use the editor to customize your signature the way you would like it. Just add your customization, check the box that says "Enable My Signature" and click "Save"!


When customizing your signature with links, images and text - this cannot be for a business or for profit. If they are, we ask that they be removed.

Advertising and Selling: Unsolicited advertising or other forms of solicitation, including but not limited to monetary donations for personal profit, are not allowed. Members who are affiliates/referrers for a company may not advertise or push a product or company on the message boards. Members found to be receiving financial gain or kickbacks for this type of advertising may be removed for abuse of the system.
