    I believe, as Arc says, if it is larger then 600x150, the forum will resize it, and it will lose transparency. A Guy

    Ah, I finally see the problem. I've been making the sigs at 650x150 which is the SF size. The EF size however is 600x150... I wonder why that might be?

    Here you go, mate. Let's hope this works.

    I've also re-posted the rainbow sig in the correct size.

    While I'm here, I'll also post kostas7 sig which I similarly made in the wrong size.

    Too late I've just changed them to 650

    BTW can you run them through something like Yahoo! Smush.it™ to post optimized images with smaller file size to save slowing pages down

    Sure, but the only time I can do it though is in a few days. I'm incredibly busy until then so I just won't have the time. Sorry.

    But some other GFX'ers may be able to make you one, just wait and see.

    EDIT: I'll see if I can quickly whip something up now. What do you want on it? A game character, an animal etc? Also, what colours would you like on it?
