    HELP!

    I'm new to this forum, and while I belong to 3 others, I seem to be breaking rules left and right here when it comes to signatures. The first time I understood, too big. No prob. But then, when i reduced the pic, it said I can't use htmls. I don't mean to sound terribly stupid, but what's an html? All I know is, I use imageshack. - LOL

    I don't wish to break forum rules, but I'm a bit lost.
    Can anyone help? Explain what I'm doing wrong, or help me to correct my sig?

    The first time you were directed to read the banner/signature guidelines because your banner was too big AND you linked to another site. You corrected the size but you again linked your signature banner to another site, which isn't allowed (that's what no html links means).

    The link was then taken out. Your banner size is correct, So you're ok now.

    actually just so you don't get the wrong idea, Sky didn't really explain what html is

    HTML is HyperText Markup Language. HTML is used to structure information — denoting certain text as headings, paragraphs, lists and so on.

    Basically its a method of coding that can be used to create webpages. The html you used acted as a link, which is not allowed.

    The question, which was directed to staff, was in response to a specific incident.

    The note "no HTML links" was put in her signature.

    Seeing that she "had" html links in her signature it would stand to reason that she already has a rudimentary idea of what HTML coding is. People do not randomly put and [img] tags (IBB code) without ...to know the context, not a formal definition.
