A alternate solution for the character limit in sigs
« on: March 14, 2010, 01:59:31 AM »
have you ever been frustrated with the character 300 character limit you have in you sig?
I know I have, since I can't post many URLs of interesting stuff
fortunately I found a way to make make your long URLs fit, by making them Tiny  :laugh:

I don't know if you've heard of this before but just recently I've found a site called http://tinyurl.com/
This site basically hosts your URL and give you a shorter URL from their site
I'm not sure about the disadvantages of this are at the moment besides from seeing the site flash in a slit second before visiting the real URL
using image URLs work too

It trimmed the fat of my character limit from 245 characters to just 158

Lol, you sound like one of those spam users that join the site just to post an advertisement.

Still, the tinyurl thing sounds useful.

"It is said that only a fool learns from his own mistakes, a wise man from the mistakes of others."-"A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing."
I wonder which one is true!?
