Announcements and Forum Help! - How do I get myself a ticker on this site?

Hi everyone,

I would like a ticker, do you know how to have one?

If you go to quick links you can create your tracker there where it says sig weight tracker, BUT I have no clue where you post it at :/

You need to be here 20 days and have 20 posts before you can get a ticker.

Once you have met that criteria, you will go to Announcements and Forum help, and follow the sticky about signature and ticker thread.

^ agreed. The option to 'Edit Signature' will appear after 20 posts and 20 days. Until then, you have to wait. I read a post from a moderator somewhere on the forum this is because they had complications revolving signatures. No further explanation was given :)

(Thanks for the info! I've spent so much time trying to figure it out, lol.)

When you meet the 20 day/20 posts criteria, you can go to Edit Signature and take it from there. Please check out WHEN the time comes!

Ruthxxx Why does 3FC have this rule?

I'm not Ruth, but it's to prevent spammers. The tickers are essentially links. We had a large number of spammers join, who would post semi-related or nonsense posts all around the board, then add a spam link in their signature, meaning the spam was now EVERYWHERE and there was no way to catch it until someone reported it.

Makes perfect sense :) Thanks.

BTW; I LOVED the spammer of the day today, the one who misspelled "tips"...:lol:

Glad you spotted that Sum. It gave me a giggle when I banned him and deleted his post. Classic!
