It was impossible to find a font exactly like the logo for Conduit 2, but by adding some layer styles to a stencil font I found something workable. I hope you like it.

For the lettering and backround I was thinking something dark and tribal , feel free to use your artistic knowledge for this, thanks in advance .

Hope you don't mind but I went total comic book on this one, using a Spawn font and comics lettering font:

Spawn (and the whole Image Comics things, with the big creators splitting off to form their own company) had a big impact on me back in the 90s.

To put a banner in your signature area, just head to the User Control Panel, then click the Profile tab. On the left side of the page, you'll want to click Edit Signature. Paste the URL of the image into the Edit Signature box and boom, your banner is up!

The forum uses BBCode, so when you paste it in, it will need [img] tags around it. The green text below is what it should look like in your signature box but substitute the link to your banner where it says http://www.yourbanner.jpg:

Code: Select all
[img]http://www.yourbanner.jpg[/img]


Hope this helps!
-Toezer

PS I pasted the banner adding instructions to the first post of this thread as well. :D


I tried following the instructions, but I get an error saying unable to determine the size of the image. I assume I'm still doing something wrong, but here's what it says in my sig:
Code: Select all

Whenever you are using an image from the web you need to be sure to right click the image and click "view image" that will open the image up in its own url page. Use that url and insert it within the image code. ;)

Here is the correct url.
