Correct; I just tried it, and my character was obviously not found. Here's hoping the next four months passes quickly.

Odd, every character made appears on the Lodestone, not sure why yours wouldn't... But as for sigs Pikko could you pass a note to the devs in consideration of allowing signatures of images uploaded directly to ZAM instead of a third party site? While I do love these sigs it would be nice to use the custom one I made of my own that shows both of my characters... Also, is it possible to use more than one FFXIV sig banner at a time, or make it alternate between characters? My premium's up this month and I already have every intention of renewing it.

I don't think they will do those things. I think people have wanted sig images forever but afaik nobody has convinced the powers that be to let us. I can mention it again though.

I don't think multiple sigs will fly either. We have already had many complaints about the size, so having more than one would only agitate people further.

Because I'm not playing until the PS3 release. However, since I plan on my character's name and server as being the same as it was for open beta, I was hoping there was a slim chance that at least the name would show up, even though the character itself was deleted.

Thanks, I've just been lurking for the most part. It seemed to me that the majority of posts have been extremely negative, which pretty much discouraged me from contributing a whole lot.

That being said, I'm hoping you guys are enjoying your free 90 days. I think SE did a good thing by doing that. Even if PS3 players only get the original 30, I'll be happy with that.

Back on topic, I'm liking the new signatures. Any chance that the people that still play FFXI can use both sigs at the same time?

Nothing, I think. If someone were to do it though, as admins we can just remove the code from your sig if it's reported to be someone else's.

One more thing to keep ZAM users happy.

Even if it's not availabe to regular users I'm still happy we can still use it as a source to other sites.

Well, there is an option to hide signatures for those who don't like seeing them.

Not to be a wet blanket, but why not allow sigs and avatars for all members on your site. You have adds running so I know it's not due to lack of funds. If you're worried about people using up all your data usage just limit the size of the sigs. I mean you guys are the only fan site I know of that still exists like it's 1999 and pictures on the web don't exist.
1. Why can't we post pics or videos in threads?
2. Why can't a SE link show pics.

I mean these are simple things that I think will make your site better. I remember I left Alla on XI for KI and BG because those sites were superior in terms of customization and media. Unfortunately right now you guys are about the only show in town so I'm here, but I'll leave as soon as some other site gets a good community going for this game.

Just my 2 cents, and i'm sure I'll be rated down and dismissed out of hand.

EzelLangor, unfortunately, these are site-wide changes and issues that require decisions by our president and they're not decisions management takes lightly. Feedback of this sort belongs in the general ZAM feedback forum.

I don't suppose the script for this is freely available anywhere, huh? I've seen similar functionality on several sites, but would like to add a similar script to my LS website.

I'm sure her character name was known before the signatures, but I can see that Pikko is a Hunger Games fan.

Just testing this out. I haven't played since before the first free trial period ended, but I might as well take advantage of this as long as I have a premium account. Nice job, gang!

Ok so apparently these are NOT premium only, something that I wasn't made aware of yesterday when I posted this announcement. From what I can tell though, non-premium still can't use their sigs in the ZAM forums. I have to figure out what's going on. More details once I know.

Edit: Sigs are premium only. Someone was confused about the news story I posted and edited it. I've since changed it back to what it was.

Ok, sigs are NOT premium only. Sigh. Seriously urked right now. The good news is, you all can use them. Meanwhile, we'll work on our inter-office communication skills. And my reading comprehension skills.

Edit: Premium sigs will feature additional backgrounds and settings, so those of you that purchased premium for this will get to have more customization later. The sigs available now are the basic release.

Can't help but wonder what made them change their minds..... perhaps all the people whining about other sites using it for free. Stop being stingy.... premium doesn't cost that much.

Pikko can ya ask them for prem feature to allow size adjustment if possible?? thxs and keep up the great work!!!!

The decision was actually made well over a month ago and an email was sent out that I totally missed, so it's my fault for originally stating they're premium only.

Those sigs are...awfully large and gaudy. They're not horrible zomfg eyesore, but when you've got a one-line response, it's like

talk talk talk talk

BAM SIG IN YOUR FACE!!

Even a four-line post with a couple of lines of sig text is 1/3 post and 2/3 sig.

Maybe a bit much?
