    Hi,

    Recently I was trying to add another line of text to my sig in the same colour and font as the rest of it (which requires me to code it as such). However, for some inexplicable reason it won't let me do it. I'm puzzled as to why not, because if I have interpreted the rules properly, I currently have 3 lines of text including the banner in my sig. So theoretically I should have room for 2 more lines, correct?

    The only conclusion I can come to is that the 5 lines allowed cannot exceed the physical size of the box you are given to enter your sig into, and as such, my sig would be over those 5 lines because of the necessary coding needed to keep the sig uniform in colour and font.

    A little help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks :)

    The only thing I can think is that the text limits include any code you use. Could that have something to do with it?

    My coded text doesn't seem to have that problem, so I don't know if that's it.

    A few hints/suggestions:

    One, you don't need to put "center" tags on every line you want centered if you want the whole signature centered. One tag at the start and end will suffice. You had 3, that took up a lot of space in your sig. You will still need to put a line break (ie, enter) between seperate lines, but each line will still be centered.

    Two, same with the "color" tag. You only need to put a new tag if the color changes. Your existing sig only had one color; one tag around the whole sig is good. You can also nest tags.

    Try it now, I cleaned up your sig a lot.
