    Best signature

    What do you think is the best type of signature for a company?

    Do you prefer something with colours, or do you prefer black text?
    Also would you include similes ect?

    What user do you think also has the best signature?

    A lot of time(s) multiple colors in signatures are annoying and not allowed.

    The wording in your signature is fine. Three colors are too much in my opinion and the light blue color is unappealing.

    Limit your wording to 2 colors and of course follow the WHT policy with respect to your signature.

    Specifically they state the following;

    ________________________________________________________________
    Signatures:

    Are a benefit extended to WHT members who have made 10 helpful posts and completed 7 days of registration.

    Must be setup in your profile, and not manually added to your messages.

    May not contain any pricing, plan, sales, etc. details. "Free" is considered a price in the context of this rule.

    May not use the word "Free" to describe any cost.

    May contain a maximum of two smilies. Or one animated smiley.

    May include two clickable links.

    May include two colors, plus black.

    Maximum font size cannot be larger than normal.

    Must be kept to a maximum of four lines when viewed at 1024x768 resolution using the horizontal postbit.

    May not contain links to other threads or posts.

    Please keep special characters to a minimum.

    Your signature is your signature. It is not for sale or rent.

    Any signature that is offensive or insulting to WHT, its members, or its staff, is prohibited.

    We reserve the right to ask you to change and/or remove your signature at any time, for any reason.

    No, see my signature for the feeling disclaimer, but since you asked..

    It looks silly given the colours - the need?, and amateurish given the "100% average" claim, this implies you not had a single microsecond of service interruption, it also implies it is your mean/median/mode/maxmium/minimum - it basically looks like you've got a really bad grasp on statistics and indirectly to a cynical person your operations (you're not NASA), and then for the cherry you guarantee to just 2 nines.

    I would recommend making the colours less bright (primarily the light blue) or removing them all together, it is difficult to read without focusing for me (you'll have to ask a gfx guy what the term is).

    I think @LP-Jay has a nice one, @FRH Lisa and @CrocWeb they are nice and attractive, gives off the message and not messy.

    I think if you follow WHT rules about only two links one email and only two colors are allowed to be used are good way to keep your signature. Try not to use bright colors also don't keep it all caps lowercase a are good.

  12. Sig with color is ok, Im not sure about Cyan tho, kind of harder to read.
