I really dig it man! Great job ;-D

I like the picture you chose and I actually like the text - I think its different and stands out without being obnoxious. Thanks for sizing the bar down too! I know it gets a bit blurry, but it definitely works. I'd rather have the sig be full sized and look great than the other way around, and I think you worked wonders with the given size constraints!

Thanks again!

My one qualm, is that I wish the CAFE starter userbar could look a bit clearer like Metroid's. I dont know how much extra space you have to work with, etc but I think his text definitely looks a bit better at second glance. I love the sig and don't want to sacrifice any quality there, but if it is possible to do both, I'm certainly game to wait B-)

well its really like comparing apples to oranges there. if you notice...metroids sig height is about half of what a normal sig is, and his background is fairly plain in general which saves quality after downsizing. for me to cut the sig down to that height, i would basically have to do the whole thing over again.

i can make the entire thing smaller like this (which i honestly dont even think makes a big difference) or cut the bottom of the sig off so you have less KBs tied up in the sig, but thats about it without me dropping in a bunch more work, thats why i asked so many questions initially. if you look around the cafe at any other members with normal sized sigs that have cafe team userbars under them, like myself, check out the quality on those. yours actually came out better than most do. (and mine being one color actually improved how mine looked...still looks more blurry than yours)

leber...thanks for the compliment. i did try to go a little different with the text but i wanted a little different look this time. i get tired of "standard " looking text and sometimes just want to break the mold and go for a font that sticks out. i know thats really not the "in" thing these days in graphics, but i try not to follow that stuff too closely :-B. with the players name, i actually hit a wall on the placement for it. there was no real standout spot....and i tried to go small and basic to keep the KBs down so he could get the userbar in. :-/ if it were my choice, i would have actually left the name out and dropped the cafe tag close to the bottom of the sig. ;-D

and yeah...you better start with that sig for the contest dude B-)

notice the sig height is close to metroids now and the banner on the botttom looks cleaner. you really just have to decide whats more important to you dude...the sig or the banner.

Ok, that all makes sense. Thanks for the input/advice! I will stick with the initial version, because I think the sig is much more important looks-wise, and I really like how it looks. Thanks for all the work you did for me man, I REALLY appreciate it! Im glad to finally have a cool Seahawks sig ;-D

Yeah I actually make templates with my user bar...
Image
...then I'll mess around with different images and stuff until I get something I like....
Image
...and then make it fit...
Image
That above sig is actually too big...it's hard with the limits we have. :-b

I think I'm going to let my user bar slide some so I can do more with my sigs. :-?

Oh and that Trufant sig is off the chain! ;-D ;-D ;-D
