    Do you have permission from the person who made it?

    If not then yeah, that's out of order.

    ok i will sign up the the forum the guy was on and ask him. i did not know about that being unacceptable. i dont like doing stuff like that but i did think it was ok to use somebody sig as long as its not on the same forum. so i will ask the guy thanks Mortenga .

    depends. are you hotlinking it or are you hosting it yourself. that's the only thing that matters in my opinion.

    Doesn't matter anyway. Tshu how would you like it if you went to another forum and someone else was using your sig, but they were hosting it themselves? [​IMG]

    No, its not ok. It's plagiarism. You're taking someone else's work, and while you aren't actually saying it, claiming it as your own. I've had a few of my sigs and avatars stolen by other people over the years, and nothing ticks me off more.

    You definitely should contact him and ask him if you can use his work, and don't forget to either link to him or mention him as the original creator. This is very important!

    You could always make a brand new sign using an animated gif from This Website.

    This one is my favorite:

    Don’t go stealing Sigs, it makes you look desperate.
    Plus the Sig looks like a lame Nike add anyway.
