USS Darwin-A Forum Banners

Forum Banners have been designed for the crew of the USS Darwin-A which are in keeping with the idea of the Darwin's characters being stars in an on-going series. Renos is the primary contact for having a forum banner created or updated, and can be contacted by email/forum PM.

How to get a banner

The character the banner is to be made for must first have a "face" to represent them and it must be fitted with an appropriate StarFleet uniform before a banner can be made. The (Image) Collective are able help with this if needed. If there is an image for the character but it's not available on the wiki it will need to be sent as an attachment when requesting the banner.

Including a quote is optional and it can be updated at a later date as necessary. If a quote is to be included send it over when you make your request or the banner will be made without one. If you do not want one this should be indicated at the time the request is made.

Once the face and quote have been decided send a request to Renos for a banner.

How to display your banner on the forums

Step by Step guide for displaying a forum banner as a forum signature.
  • Log in to the forums.
  • At the top right of the page username is displayed- click on it and select My Profile
  • At the top right there is a button that says Edit my profile - click on it.
  • The page will now have a number of tabs on the left of the screen. Click on the one that says Signature
  • If a signature is currently displayed it will be shown at the top of the screen. There will be a white box beneath a title that says Edit my Signature
  • Click in the white box so you can see the text cursor in the box.
  • There is a row of images above the box, the 11th one on the second row, (It's square and looks like a mini Polaroid of a tree) click on the icon.
  • Paste in the direct link to your image, (Click on the appropriate banner below. It will open a character.png image page with update history. Click on the banner again and it will be displayed on it's own. Copy the address from the address bar - that is the direct link needed.) then click ok.
  • The image will now fill the white box. Click on it and then click center, which is the second last icon on row 2.
  • Click save changes at the bottom of the page.

Please note it may take some time for the signature to update and appear properly. Try refreshing the page or pressing control and F5. Be patient but if after a few hours it is still not working try again.
