    There have been a few changes made to every member's Profile options to include a special section just for telling us about your Raptor! The changes will accomplish two things:
    1. Create a uniform and organized place just for YOU to tell US about YOUR Raptor.
    2. Clean up excessively long signatures that some of you(me too :hidesbehindsofa:) may have.

    As the forum grows and more people are posting, long signatures can be distracting from the mission at hand...posting and reading Raptor information.

    Allowable signature field lengths will be shortened once everyone makes the switch.

    Secondly-
    Another pet peeve of mine is stretched, distorted Raptor Signature Pictures and this has also been addressed. Since we will be freeing up all this space from people's long winded signatures we will now have more "room" for slightly taller signature pictures for Full Access Members. Rather than the 100 x 500 pictures previously allowed, you will now be able to upload an image 300 x 400(like mine) which is more square in shape.

    To Edit your "My Raptor" Profile section simply Click the User CP tab at the top of your forum page and then select Edit Your Details from the left side menu of options. You will then see all the areas where you can customize your profile to share your Raptor with us! Once your done, your Public Profile will have a new tab for others to read about your Raptor- mine is all done, check it out!!

    If you need assistance with any of the changes or have any questions pleas feel free to PM myself or any of the Admin/Mod staff.

    sounds like some pretty good changes, thanks for this. the long sigs were getting a tad annoying. do you think mine is to long?

    Is it possible to make a universal link in everyones signature that directs people to their "My Raptor" page in the user's profile? IMO, it would make it easier for new people to find. Something like a "my raptor page" link/button.

    well, clicking on your avatar or username takes people directly to your profile. adding more links to it in the signature would negate one of the purposes of the idea.
