Silent's New Space-Saving Sports Signatures - All Sports Championships & "Where I Come From"

Recommended Posts

So, years ago I started creating images for people to spruce up their signatures.   Three threads later (one for each type and one condensed thread to return), I've done a lot of signatures and had a lot of fun doing it.

 

But I've found that things may have gone... a little haywire.   I've only ever had two in my sig, trying to take up as little space as possible, but some had as many as five stacked in a huge blob of images.   Well, due to that, I'm fixing one of the greatest errors I made when originally creating these.   But more on that later.   First, let's begin with some instructions:

 

Instructions on adding signature images

These are for anyone to use in their signature if they desire. To add them, click the arrow next to your username in the upper right corner and choose "Account Settings".   Click the "Signature" tab on the left and under the text field hit the "Insert other media" button and select "Insert image from URL".  All you need to do is right click the image in my post, select "Copy link address" and paste it in the window that pops up when you click "Insert image from URL".   If your browser does not have an option to copy link address, select "Open image in new tab", then copy the URL at the top.

 

Enjoy! ^_^

 

All Sports Championship Signature Images

My original signatures thread, this was based on some images I'd seen in someone else's signature. I decided to make my own version with a more simplistic style, and then to offer my services to anyone who was interested. Here's a sample of my work, my own image from my own signature, which consists of the championships of the Yankees, Mets, US Men's Curling Team, Dolphins, Jets, Giants, Rangers, Habs, 'Canes, Black Knights, Bulls, Knicks, Nets, Orange, and my very own Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball team.

Just tell me what teams you want to be included and what levels of championships you want to be included. Do you want all world championships? Do you also want divisional or league/conference championships? Do you want bowl wins or scoring trophies? And if the team has existed in multiple cities, let me know which cities you want included? Do you want the Braves' entire existence, or just their time in Milwaukee?

 

Here's a sample of some of the trophies that are available, but I will do anything I can to accommodate everyone. Images of the championship prizes of more obscure leagues are very helpful.

"Where I Come From"

I've always been intensely interested and had a great love and appreciation for the different cultures in sports, which, of course, includes the logos and uniforms, leading me to this website.

 

One of the things I really loved, which was used for only one year and then seems to have completely disappeared from memory and the internet is NCAA Football 2011's ad campaign featuring the slogan "Where I Come From". In the commercial, different people described things where they came from, giving little snippets about their sporting culture. At the moment, I've only found videos of the commercials surviving on a french video site and one extremely low quality video on Youtube.

General Version: http://www.jeuxvideo...-1-00028354.htm
SEC Version: http://www.jeuxvideo...-2-00028355.htm
Big 12 Version: (Loud audio warning.)

 

I'd often thought of doing the same for other sports. Originally, I made a full list of phrases for the MLB, and tried making signature images to go with them, but my early attempts were rather pitiful. But I took another crack at it, and the thread became a rather booming affair that I think inadvertently caused the change that currently causes signature images to be automatically shrunk.   It is because of that that I've changed the size of all of these, completely remastering them from the ground up.   Now, they will fit two-to-a-line rather than each image needing its own line.   This will hopefully cut down on the signatures of those who like to show off their love for many different teams!

 

I also made a few videos to show off my process for anyone who may be interested.  Unfortunately, this was all done with Office, which is no longer free and a recent computer refresh led to me losing my ability to use it.   I've redone everything in Photoscape, which will lead to some visual differences, but it's gone very well!   I'll still leave the video up for the non-technical parts of it.

 

Each image consists of five separate images: one of the team's home city, one of their home venue, with the teams logo in the center. The other two are different for each sport. If you'd like anything special, make a request. In the future, I wouldn't mind doing the other sports as well. And yes, they're all positive ones. For some, it was tough finding something positive, but I think I've succeeded. You're welcome to link me to images that you want me to use if you have special requests.

When I started the other night, I planned on having everything up and all the outstanding requests filled and redirected to here.   Then internet troubles and various issues with living in a new home completely screwed that up.   Finish soon.

Hey.   When you say "Team USA", do you want the men's teams, or both the men's and women's teams for those sports?
