Unable to generate a signature

I have tried to use the sig generator page to get a Folding@Home sig without success. I was told to wait until I got a few units done and my name should show up there but I'm now up to 13 units and still my name doesn't show up in the list. The very top of the page shows some errors and something about needing the site's cookie to function correctly (which I have). Is there any way to manually create a signature or is there something I'm doing wrong?

    I believe the sig generator has been broken for the last 2 site updates.

    Correct, the Icrontic folding sig generator does not work we all use the Extreme Overclocker's sig.

    Yup, the EOC sig generator allowed me to manually piece together the sig. I don't know if I did it the best way possible or not but it seems to have worked.

    You made your sig with a static image rather than a link to the EOC page. I like mine to link back to EOC (just find out what your user number on EOC is by searching at folding.extremeoverclocking.com) :

    In the signature box, click insert image and for the URL use the following, replacing the Xs with your username number and the c1 throught the end simply changes the formatting (in this case to black and such):
    http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/sigs/sigimage.php?u=XXXXXXX&c1=FFFFFF&c2=000000&c3=000000&c4=0000CC&c5=FFFFFF

    Then click the image you created, click add hyperlink and paste the following, again substituting your actual EOC user number for the Xs:
    http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?u=XXXXX

    If there is a more graceful way, I am unaware of it.

    uh oh, now my sig isn't showing up at all. It showed up in the preview but not in the actual post.

    Make sure you are in the sig gen page from the My Account screen. Follow those direcs, make sure to save it each time, then post back.

    Signatures only appear after your first post in a discussion.

    That way your sig only shows once per page and doesn't needlessly interrupt the discussion or take up a bunch of space.

    Thanks. I believe this answers my question. I was worried because it seemed to be showing up fine then didn't again. I didn't realize the forum was setup that way.
