    Hello everyone. I am new here, and am trying to use this image that I made for my signature: i.imgur[.]com/XgsPrzA.jpg . I am wondering why it isn't working. I couldn't find anything in the rules stating you need a certain post count, level, rank, or anything before you can use one, so any help would be appreciated. :)
    EDIT: For clarity - When I "Preview" my signature, it looks absolutely fine. After saving it though, it's as if I never edited it, and it's just gone.

    Go here and copy and paste the below code in the signature box and hit Save Changes.

    Yup, that's exactly what I do. I'm very familiar with forums and bbcode, so it was the first thing I tried. It's still just not showing up for some reason.

    It looks like the signature function may adhere to the same rules for newcomers as posts in that you can't hotlink an image until you have a minimum of 10 posts. You can have a text based signature but not an image.

    Just confirming that you were correct in your presumption. Thanks again for letting me know. ^_^

    @Zazaaji you might be able to have an image if you upload it to the site by attaching it to one of your posts, and making a note of the number (eg click add thumbnail to post, turn off auto formatting so you can see the bbcode, and copy the number), then use https:// gbatemp. net/attachments/number without the spaces
