Well firstly you have to send in 3 stool samples, mine were sent back telling me I had insufficient data & that after DNA testing I was pregnant with triplets (Dennis sent in Dinosaur fossilized poop which he still maintains was his own but were are still waiting for the carbon dating tests to come back) , so I then made the best 450 signatures I could make which turned out that "Bill AKA "Just a Guy" had them all in his rotation, so I tried to make a couple of walls, these came out quite nice and I had a few nice comments ... but sadly I still didn't get the badge, bribery didn't work either as John still maintains that he never received my money order, although I'm sure that I've paid for the last 2 years hosting of "Seven Forums" .... but all Joking aside just keep doing what you do pal and I'm sure that given time the peeps on the GFX team will take note and you may be voted in

I send stool samples into everything I sign up for online. Doesn't everyone else?? :P

Thanks for the info, I'll keep on plugging away in my free time and see what happens.

If you are only allowed 600x100 and upload a gif sized 650x150, it will change it. As long as you stick to Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 650 by 150 pixels or 250.0 KB (whichever is smaller). Which is within your permission level, it will stay a gif

Well, that explains it, I only received a few of the sigs, but got the stool I took it as a sign...

semantics!

LOL, I even googled old fonts and found this one..

Free Font UpperEastSide by David Rakowski | Font Squirrel

edit: Looking at it again, I needed to make the font bigger. I was zoomed in a bit to clean up the edges after I erased the old sign and didn't notice how small it would be. Oh well.
