A signature (sigs or siggys for short) is how someone types their username at the end of their posts. The majority of higher-ranked users have signatures. The signatures go at the bottom of a post to show who posted it and to be creative in the crowd of users. There are also some topics where you can ask "signature makers" for a signature with your name, like "Custom Signature Shop," "The Signature Shop," or "Free Custom Signature Service." Sometimes these shops will include an option to pick the style, such as "Inventor" or "Random." There are hundreds of different types of signatures. In the new Message Boards there is an auto-sig feature; which means that your sig is added to the end of your posts automatically.

Main types of signatures


A normal signature is just the username with no major changes or has just has the numbers of the end taken off. It also might have special ASCII (non-Unicode) characters or emoticons.

Example: "~MrMaracaMan~"

Abbreviated Signature

An abbreviated Signature is of letters that relate to the username or have parts of the username cut out. Some posters also use a '-' in front of the signature itself. Examples:

Symbol Signature

A symbol signature consists of symbols used to spell the username. A user must use Unicode characters to create signatures like this. To access Unicode characters:

Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map, or use an online chart.
Use an online chart.
This can be used with both, but is a very poor way of finding Unicode characters. First, make sure NumLock is on. Second, Hold down Alt and hit a number on the Numpad. Different combinations give different combinations. for example, in Windows:

Note: Character Map and this method do not provide all the Unicode characters. To access the full spectrum, use an online chart.


ASCII Signatures

Some signatures use special characters found on the keyboard like: (,),{,},^,*,\,/,|,¬,`,¦,€,<,>,@...etc.

Badge Signatures

Many times when a user receives a badge from the Badges Office, they will have it made into a sig so they can show it off. Examples:

  • ¨‘°º◎нίgн qυαℓίту ρσѕтєя◎º°‘¨ - Lego.minifig
  • ▪□■░ѺᵾᾳⱡἶҬу Ᵽỗᵴᵵ℮ᵳ░■□▪ - Candygirl4177

Mod Signatures

A couple mods have been known to "order" a signature at one of the many sig shops.

  • ▐ḈΩḉΩⱭ℮ⱱἷ∫∫℮▌ - Cocodeville, made at "The Signature Shop" by Candygirl4177 (There are boxes at the ends)
  • Mojo_Sansibar - Mojo Sansibar, made at "Jarr2003's Signature Shop" by Jarr2003 (Actually his second costumer)

Fancy Signatures

Colored signatures are used by many users. It is inserted into the signature by the means of HTML coding.

To get spaces, look here: Spaces in Signatures -Keighlian

To get a coloured signature (and bold, or underlined, or large, or a different font, etc., etc.) you'll need to use a bit of simple HTML code. HTML stands for "Hyper Text Markup Language," and is the code all webpages are written in - it tells your browser how to display the information on each page, and we're going to use that to our advantage!
HTML takes the form of tags; start tags (which let the browser know when to start adding the effect) and end tags (to tell the browser when to stop). You simply add the different tags at the beginning and end of what you want to change! Simple!
There is a different tag for each thing you can do with your text, and below I have included a table of the tags you can use in your sig. Just remember to remove the spaces within each tag (except after the word "font") and to keep the quote marks when you add your own font and colour names.

Effect Start Tag End Tag
Bold <b> </b>
Underline <u> </u>
Italic <i> </i>
Strikethrough <strike> </strike>
Large Size <strong> </strong>
Font Change <font face="Courier New"> </font>
Colour Change <font color="Red"> </font>
Centre Align <center> </center>
Left Align <left> </left>
