Newgrounds Sig Makers Jul. 27th, 2006 @ 12:19 PM Reply

Welcome to the Official Newgrounds Sig makers!

This is the official sig making club for Newgrounds.com!

There have been numerous failed sig clubs over the years. Here's a small history:

The Sinister Sig Makers (SSM)
Sinister Sig Makers Reborn (SSMR)
Chaos Sig Makers (CSM)
Insignia Sig Makers (ISM)
The Elite Sig Makers (ESM)
Amature Sig Makers (ASM)

All of them had great runs, especially the ASM, which was the largest thread every created on Newgrounds.

What Happened to these clubs? They all died sadly. Some of spam, some with members fighting and others because the sig makers just didn’t make any sigs. A fixed sig making environment is not what’s needed. Keep it loose and keep it fun! That’s what the NGSM aims to do.

Requesting a signature

When Requesting a signature at the NGSM, you must follow these simple rules:

• The Signature has to be 400x60 Pixels, or lower.

• It has to be able to fit under Newgrounds 40 kb limit.

• If you wish to have a sig for another website please PM the maker you wish to do it. Do not request in the thread!

• If your sig has not been made for three days, you may post the request again. Remember to include the original request when re-requesting.

• Sigs take time to make and getting one is not a right, it’s a privilege. At all times be respectful and polite or the makers may and probably will ignore you.

• You may ask for only 3 sigs per month.

• The official Newgrounds rules still apply here.

• Give us something to work with. Don't just post "lol hai guyz gimme a sig" If you do that the request will be ignored. You can follow this optional guideline:

Copy and paste this, and fill in the blanks.

Text you would like on your signature and any formatting there in.
The theme you would like your sig to follow. Include any links to pictures here.
Colors you would like to see in your sig or you would like to exclude.
Additional comments on layout/animation should go here.

Or alternatively:

Main Text: (large, usually name)

Secondary Text: (quote of some sort)

Style: (explain the feel you want. Grunge/ abstract/ tech)

Picture/ Render: (external link to image.)

Good image sites are:

www.gamerenders.com

www.clantemplates.com/renders/gallery

www.planetrenders.net

Colors: (state a basic color scheme to follow)

Remember, these are optional guidelines.

Becoming a sig maker for the NGSM.

Following its roots of the ASM , the NGSM is an open sig making environment. We will make a small "Regulars" list once we get this thing going. We just ask that you follow these simple rules when making a sig:

• If someone becomes abusive, do not finish the sig and report them to the list "keepers" with a log of what was abusive (via pm).

• If someone is spamming or does not follow the rules do not respond. If they become abusive report them to the list holders via pm. ONCE AND ONLY ONCE PER EVENT.

• Any sig maker should report any infraction of the BBS rules to the Moderators of Newgrounds. IGNORE RULE BREAKERS. DO NOT RESPOND IN AN ATTEMPT TO BE "HELPFUL". They had the chance to read the rules before they posted.

• If you find that you can not complete a sig you said you would, post in this thread informing the sig makers and pm the requester. Link back to the original request.

It's very important that we use the PM system. This will cut down on spam and keep it organized.

Acceptable Discussion

The Newgrounds Sig Makers is not just a place to create and request signatures. We also encourage discussion of sig making and other related subjects. The following are allowed in this thread.

• Discussions on sig making techniques

• Discussions on resource sites: eg DeviantArt, Good-Tutorials

• Sig critique. NB: This must be constructive criticism.

Unacceptable Discussion

However, there are some things that we have no time for, and in this case, we will bring our wrath down on you with the mightiest of forces, lest you stray into one of the following deeply shunned areas of discussion.

• Personal attacks on sig makers, or unsubstantiated critique. Keep it to the PMs, guys.

• Do not ask where your sig is. It has been made, it is being made, or it cannot be made.

• Do not make multiple posts for each picture you want in your sig. Instead, link to all pictures that cant fit in one post.

Red/Black List

These lists have been created for those users who have given past sig makers unending trouble. They should be ignored and not acknowledged in any fashion. They receive no sig or explanation as long as they are on the list. It is likely that they were given a reason when they were put on it. Red list status isn't permanent. Black list status is.

Red List:

currently empty.

Black List:

currently empty.

Keepers of the list currently include:

gumOnShoe
xAsCitiesBurnx
madknt

Contact a keeper if some one is abusing you. Keepers only run the list, not the NGSM.

The crew's official website is here: http://www.myspace.com/NGsigmakers

On the site you will find Updated rules, Red/Black list info, and lot's of other stuff. So if you're new you should check it out!

********************Thanks to all the ASM, and SSM members. Special thanks to the people who helped make this post: gumOnShoe, xAsCitiesBurnx, BananaBreadMuffin, and Arch_Angel_Rhys

Let's start making some sigs!

I think it's funny because I was in every sig making group on that list you mentioned dave. I guess that means I fail the worst.

Well I hope someone requests soon...

That is a members only club. The NGSM has nothing to do with it nor does that club influence what goes on here. The purpose of the NGSM is to give all users of all levels the chance to interact and make sigs. If they can continue to do their own thing I suppose they stick around.

Without all of the failed sig threads, this should grow to the size of the ASM quickly. Very quickly. And I think I will start to make sigs for people, I made the one I am using now, I also made EscapeFromReality's, and it's fun. So I'll try to fill peoples' requests as much as I can.

And in the meantime, could someone make me a badass sig, because I could do with one which exceeds expectations of myself.

Welcome all to the new Sig Makers!

As soon as I get Macromedia Fireworks back on this PC, I'll be free to hang out more often and fill in requests. I'll try and get more involved from now on.

Request people!

Can someone make me a sig please. I'm not sure if you will be able to do it, but if you could that would be great.
A matrix style sig. Black background. neon green "t0mm0". The t and the m's stay where they are, but the 0's keep falling, and loads of 0's are falling in the background.
If that's too complicated, can I have something like the matrix screensavers, with my name in the middle.
Thanks if you can help

Hey, can I request a sig?
I'd like it to be pretty much the same as my current sig, but done properly. I made this sig, and I did it in paint, so it looks rather shabby.
So, I want it to keep the pale blue and pale pink colours, and to be set out in a similar way, with the heart in the middle being two toned, like it is now.
I did the text myself, so that would be difficult to copy, just do a simple but nice looking font for it.
I don't know how specific to be with it other than that. I guess if I'm unclear, PM to explain it clearer...

Word's: WW twice at both ends in a blue with sort of a glass effect
Theme: Dark, evil... something unusual
Colour: Black, greys, blues anything like that would be great
Animation: If you could do where it glows every 5 seconds or something I would really love it

Thanks in advance and I hope the club goes well... might do some myself in a couple of days.
Good luck.
