Okay . . . first of all create your ticker following the guidelines. Then using your browser's "edit" feature, highlight the code in the box that says Use for 3FC and click 'copy'.
Open a new browser window, Go to User CP and click on "Edit Signature", scroll down about a screens worth and you will find a little text box into which you can 'paste' your ticker information. Don't forget to scroll down toward the bottom of the page and click on "Save Signature".
The good thing is that when you next want to update your numbers in the ticker you will not hve to do everything all over again (unless you want to). If you look t the code you just copies you will see a string of three numbers tht you can relate to -- the final number is your current weight. As you lose you can simply overtype that number and then click on "save Signature" to accomplish the update.
PS: You must have been a member for at least 30 days and have at least 30 posts before you are able to have a signature -- and, since that is where the ticker resides. . . well you are almost there, Chickie.
