i post on quite a few different forums and i'm thinking about putting a link to the rainbow forum in my signature. i could simply put "rainbow forums" as a hyperlink, but i thought it would be good to add a little description.

how can the rainbow forums be summed up in a phrase small enough to fit in a signature?

since rainbow server's have a tradition of colouring their names on the master server should i do the same for the words "rainbow server" in my sig?

anyone want to make an official sig link?

I will give you my diplomatic answer: whut?
The blue is a bit to dark, and it hurts my eyes with the purple ;P
Personally and honestly, I didn't like it /don't hate me\
vector graphics pwn though =)

Sure, I'll sketch up a few ideas I had in mind...but not today ;)
We have Hanso working on some logotypes and contents for the website but I haven't seen him around so I don't know how that has progressed.

i've copied and pasted the...

| visit the rainbow - we bring colour to your gibs |

...code into my openarena signature. it's good and readable, but it doesn't link to the forum. this one does...

Code::
[url=http://furver.no-ip.org/rainbow/index.php?name=Forums][b]| visit the [color=green]ra[/color][color=blue]in[/color][color=purple]b[/color][color=orange]o[/color][color=red]w[/color] - we bring colour to your gibs |[/b][/url]

Guys, a reminder, there is no rainbow without purple. So please find a purple which is acceptable. =)

here's a sig link to the forum with all the colours of the rainbow in the correct order. (i had to use red twice and the yellow's a little hard to read).

| visit the rainbow - we bring colour to your gibs |

Code::
[url=http://furver.no-ip.org/rainbow/index.php?name=Forums][b]| visit the [color=red]r[/color][color=orange]a[/color][color=yellow]i[/color][color=green]n[/color][color=blue]b[/color][color=purple]o[/color][color=red]w[/color] - we bring colour to your gibs |[/b][/url]

is it possible to specify colours by numbers instead of names?

Colour reference template :|

82dpi RGB;
Red: R:255 G:35 B:0
Orange: R:250 G:140 B:10
Yellow: R:255 G:250 B:10
Green: R:0 G:180 B:70
Cyan: R:0 G:180 B:195
Blue: R:35 G:95 B:160
Violet: R:70 G:50 B:140

All 7 colours must be included and should be arranged in the gradient order.

[edit: this is not for the sig, it's just a color reference :)]

82dpi RGB;
Red: R:255 G:35 B:0 #ff2300
Orange: R:250 G:140 B:10 #fa8c0a
Yellow: R:255 G:250 B:10 #fffa0a
Green: R:0 G:180 B:70 #00b446

Blue: R:35 G:95 B:160 #235f8c
Violet: R:70 G:50 B:140 #46328c

...and stuck them into the forum link like this...

Code::
[url=http://furver.no-ip.org/rainbow/index.php?name=Forums][b]| visit the [color=#ff2300]r[/color][color=#fa8c0a]a[/color][color=#fffa0a]i[/color][color=#00b446]n[/color][color=#00b4c3]b[/color][color=#235f8c]o[/color][color=#46328c]w[/color] - we bring colour to your gibs |[/b][/url]

Maybe if you could put something (like black) in the background it would be easyer to read the yellow. Because the graysh background here doesent help distinguishing letters at first glance.

i've found out how to do coloured backgrounds. you use something like
Code::
[bg=blue]


problem is that some forums don't allow this.
