Signature Skype Link Error

Post by SwifterTheDragon » Mon Jul 18, 2016 3:03 am

I would like to add a link to my Skype profile in my signature.
I am using Windows 10.
I've tested opening other people's Skype links inside signatures, and it works fine.
I am trying to make a URL named "Skype" with my Skype URL.
When I put my own link, it turns blue but different than normal links and isn't a link at all!
Then when I add http:// it works but opens a blank page.
I've tried copying links from other users and editing only their username to mine, and then the code doesn't even work at all.
What am I doing wrong?
My signature doesn't have this error itself currently, I put it in.

Thanks for spotting the error.
Do you think my banner is good?

it's honestly tolerable, although that's coming from someone who's the son of a graphic designer so my opinion is very skewed

please take this to PMs if you want to talk more, we're just cluttering the topic now

There is no need to include your contact information in your signature since you can click the little speech bubble next to "Contact" in the profile beside posts and it pops up with all your contact links that you've entered in your profile. Putting it in your signature too is redundant and takes up room.

As for your banner, it's rather hard to read, at least on my monitor. The colors you chose are too close together.

Is the text hard to read or the colors?
Should I change the font?

Should I make certain text bigger?
Should I make certain text smaller?
What can I add to decorate my banner?

I'm gonna agree with Twiddle here. You can remove all those links in your signature since they can all be found on your profile already.

As for the banner, I can't really say. I'm not big into design.

That's fine, but you have all the other ones that do work in your signature as well.

I think you're missing what I'm saying. I'm saying keep the ones that don't work on your profile in your signature and then remove the rest that do work since they are already on your profile.

for the sig image, make the text either a lot lighter or a lot darker or both for the different texts, the fonts and sizes are perfect

FINALLY.
I had to search through lists of fonts, but I found it.
I will now edit the colors and make them more visible.
