THE FIST ... Want to promote this site? Add the fist to all your forum sigantures.
Permalink  
 


If you'd like to help promote this site a good low key way to do so is to add a link to your signature on other forums.. and an even cooler way to do it is to add an image with the website's url embedded in it.. like this  so when people click the picture in your signature it opens this site..

 

 

Here are step by step instructions how to do so for other "activeboard.com" websites.. this should also aply to similar forums using phpbb .. if not PM me, or ask here and I will help you get it set up.

 

Step 1: After you have created an account and logged into it, go to your profile. On this site the quickest way to do that is to find your name on the right side of the screen where you logged in... once you've located it, double click your name to bring up your profile.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Step 2: Once the website brings up your profile page look to the left under the "Profile" list.. find the word "Signature" and double click on it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

Step 3: Copy and paste the URL bellow into your signature text box ((as pictured above))..

 

 [IMG]spacehttps://i1184.photobucket.com/albums/z329/SuckerPunchGC/SignatureFist.gif[/IMG]

 

For the purpose of explaining how to add a picture to your sigature I had to add the word "space" between [IMG] and http so the website showed you the URL and not the picture ... you don't want the word space in the url once you've pasted it into your signature. Soo after you past the above url into your signature delete the word space so it looks exactly like the picture above.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Step 4: Click and drag over the url so the entire thing is highlighted.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Step 5: In the tool bar above find and click on the chain link button.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Step 6: After the "insert link" form pops up, fill it out as pictured above.

LINK URL: http://crowhunting.activeboard.com/  ((Brings the user to the home page of this site))

Target : Open link in the same window ((redirects use to this site inside the active Tab/window))

Title: Sucker Punch Crow Hunting Forum ((Shows the text "Sucker Punch Crow Hunting Forum" when a user puts his cursor over the fist))

 

**Once everything looks right and is filled out like the picture above; click the "insert" button.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Step 7: Once the "Insert Link" form has disappeared; click the "Save Changes" button and you are DONE..

Just a thought, why a fist? Ya I know sucker punch but wouldn't a crow cause even more curiosity?


 

The fist seemed to me the obvious symbol for a sucker punch.... why I did not opt for a crow in this instance is because... no; I don't believe a crow would cause more curiosity. I have seen several crow hunters on other sites that have crows as their account avatar as well as crows in their signature.. and I for one have never questioned why someone had it there... it fits the site.. I look at it like this... if 10 crow hunters on a forum had a picture of a crow in their signature I would not be curious at all as to why it was there... at least not initially... now if I saw 10 users on a crow hunting forum with a fist in their signature I would immediately as myself... what the heck is with the fist. I don't know about anyone else but I have never tried to click on a sig. pic. of a crow on a crow hunting site, or a picture of a fish on a fishing site..

Now with all that said, I have drawn a cartoon crow with an eye swollen like a boxer's, I just haven't taken the time to digitize it yet....when I do I will also offer it as an option to the fist.

Will anyone actually do this? Who knows. Why did I do it? Because every site should. Signature Area's on a forum are like a car's bumper.. and I say, why not have a bumper sticker for those that like them.
