With the amount of people having Trainn Sigs in their sigs, I decided to take it a step farther. I created a script that allows you to overlay your status, after you complete the site. shock

This works with every Trainn site, and is very easy to setup. Just follow the steps below

[bcac6b19835]How to Make Your Custom Sigs [/bcac6b19835][/sizecac6b19835][/colorcac6b19835]
  1. [licac6b19835]Login to the Trainn Site that you want your sig from.
    [licac6b19835]Click on the My Account Tab
    [licac6b19835]Scroll down to the bottom and copy the URL to your Account Status image.
    [licac6b19835]Go to http//www.mytestsites.net/sig_gen/
    [licac6b19835]Follow the instructions there.
    [licac6b19835]Copy and past the code for forums that is generated (should have and [" alt=""/img] in it) into your signature in your profile[/listocac6b19835][/sizecac6b19835]

    I've approved it with Trainn, and it should work without errors. You can view what some of them look like in my sig.

    If you have any questions or encoutner any errors, send me a [url==http//forum.freeipodguide.com/privmsg.php?mode=post&u=4558]PM Me[=http//forum.freeipodguide.com/privmsg.php?mode=post&u=4558]PM Me[/url]. D

    Also, if you want to have a different image overlayed, you can sent it to me, and I will add the option. It has to be a 400px x 100px .pngurl==http://=http:///url image with transparency. ;)

    [bcac6b19835]Current features[/bcac6b19835]

    [licac6b19835]The creation site automtically updates when you try to make a new sig for a new Trainn site (IE If you put http//www.yourplasmas4free.com/goods/123456.png, the site would add the option to make a sig for that site)
    [licac6b19835]Lots of little things. D

Can you make one that says "Hideously Oversized Sig"? Also, "Abuse of deform filters".

Thanks!

BTW For some reason, it is still not showing the right image when a site is down. Right now, it will say that there is an error in your id. I'll try to fix that later. shrug

It's gonna be an update to the whole script, basically it's gonna be a lot better.

As for the ID problem, it looks like something is going on with yourfreevideoipods.com, and so, the script can't get to the sig image on that site. Currently, if for some reason it can't find your sig image, it automitcally displays that ID is an error. I'm gonna see if I can fix that now though.

09-02-2006 21:35:20

Update
  1. [li4ff3e8e01d]Added different styles. You can change your style by adding a 1/ before the sig.png.
    Example
    http//mytestsites.net/sig_gen/3604free/1189443/rec[b4ff3e8e01d]/3[/b4ff3e8e01d]/sig.png
    [li4ff3e8e01d]Random signatures can be generated by elimitating the thing in bold above
    [li4ff3e8e01d]Implemented a MySql Backend to log stuff
    [li4ff3e8e01d]Implemented a Caching type system. This allows for images to be loaded quicker because they are actual files on the server. They refresh automatically every 24 hours.
    [li4ff3e8e01d]You can force the image to refresh everytime it is loaded by changing sig.png to sig_r.png
    Example ttp//mytestsites.net/sig_gen/3604free/1189443/rec/3/sig[b4ff3e8e01d]_r[/b4ff3e8e01d].png[/listo4ff3e8e01d]

    [b4ff3e8e01d]Things to Come[/b4ff3e8e01d]
    1. [li4ff3e8e01d]Update the Generator page so that you can change the type right on there.

    [li0ca4bfdaf1]Added the ability to chose if you want your image to refresh every time on the Sig Creation Page
    [li0ca4bfdaf1]Added a preview that lets your preview what the types of sigs look like before you chose one (Javascript Required)
    [li0ca4bfdaf1]Added the ability to have the url automitically formatted for Forums and HTML
    [li0ca4bfdaf1]Gave the site a [b0ca4bfdaf1]Major[/b0ca4bfdaf1] facelift. Check it out at http//www.mytestsites.net/sig_gen
    [/listo0ca4bfdaf1]
    [b0ca4bfdaf1]Things to Come[/b0ca4bfdaf1]

lol That would be me (1659881). I guess cause I check the forums quite often shock and I post in high-traffic threads, lol. Anyways, I think your Status program works perfectly now....no bugs for me...obviously wink Suggestions...maybe add more styles (a given), put a timestamp on the image somewhere of the last status change. That's all I could think of.

Sure, I can do the timestamp thing. Where would you want it?

ajasax

06-03-2006 09:58:39

Maybe you could put the timestamp in the lower-left corner. Something like "Last Status Change mm.dd.yy" then ppl will know when you got your iPod/whatever. Btw, my image is broken....whats going on? Should I regenerate it?

liEdit Nvm, something must be screwy w/ the campus pod. It's back.

1. STICKY NOW!
2. Don't know if anybody else experienced this, but my sig right now is not what was displayed on your site. It seems to change every now and then (which I don't mind, actually ;)).

compuguru

16-05-2006 05:04:15

It doesn't always update because my script stores the image, and update it every 24 hours. If you want to force it to update, just replace sig.pnh with sig_r.png. You can do that via your browser to update it manually, or you can put it in your sig to have it update every time it's loaded, but will take a lot longer to load.

Yeah I'm 13. TRAINN doesn't state in the Terms that you have to be a certain age, it's just in the Help section which it says anyone over 16 can participate. Plus, I can do CC sites because I used my mom's CC, and I have a bank account so I have money in my paypal. It's all in the thinking P

LOL thx, I've completed YFVI and received $300 check because my limit for Paypal was already met and I could no longer receive more than $44 that month. The only thing bugging my about my youripodtouch site is that I posted on eBay, but I didn't include my referral link. I'm afraid someone would report me as spam when I gave them the info by email.... ? Oh yeah for anyone using Anything4free, add me to your friends list! Username is Tom Zheng.
