Ok so it will let me do the flag boy next to the test but not next to Queen but will let me put it all in a straight line across the whole page but it looks dumb that way. Which way to you think. Like this above or the other way on 3 levels?

My little USA flag boy disappeared!
Ah I've just figured out what you mean by this... if the image was linked from an attachment in a private message, it won't appear to anyone other than those talking in the PM (as we don't have permissions). I saw a few broken link images in sigs on here and removed them, not realising that you could actually see them - if you want the old flag one just upload it in public and link to it that way, it should work ok. If you want to add an image to a signature that everyone can see, you can attach it to a public post and link to it that way. The pirate one appears ok as it's posted in public. I currently don't see an image sig for @Dimelius, but I suspect that's because the image linked is from a private message.

This is what I see:

Ok here it is all tidied up tight and close together!
for my money, I like Queen, text, then pirate boy, but I like to see things condensed more than others, maybe. Do it as YOU like to see it, imo. The ONLY reason I even bring it up is it CAN be hard to scroll to the next post if there's a lot of large gifs in siggy. Otherwise, not an issue for me.

It can be hard on phone users, I try now and then using a phone or tab, very briefly and it is a lot of scrolling to get past. I usually am on the lappy, easier on the old hands, there it is not that much of a bother

I did shrink the queen and put the others underneath. Hope this will help. I could put them all on one line next to each other but that looks weird to me.

Very nice work @brokensword They look real and love how the water comes out of that one!
Thanks, JDuB; I've gotten the technique down, now. Really easy to create and work with. And light weight. I made the log after seeing GB's setup and knew I'd never find something similar anytime soon. And I had 2 parts of my redbud/wFall hill used up but the backside, which you can't see anyhow, was still available, so figured it was a good way to hide one end of the log and let the other stick out into view. I already had a feed from one pump there so it was an easy tweak.

Glad you like!
