That worked great, but I think your sig should have this code in it: user posted image instead because the lik to your site in your sig doesn't work.

I thought you were saying the link to the site on the website was wrong, and I spent ten minutes looking for the typo. Then I reread your post and realize you were talking about my forum sig not the website. Thanks for the catch!

You're welcome, afterall, you need to advertise your own website! And you can't do that if the link doesn't work.

I'm having some hosting problems. If anybody out there could host this on their server, that would be great. It doesn't use many resources, and bandwidth use is minimal due to caching.

I've added a hit counter for the gamercards. So far today, I've had over 1,000 gamercards served. No wonder the web host is complaining.

Is your web host the guy in your avatar? He doesn't look too happy.

Nah. They didn't really complain. They went the direct route and suspended me without warning and then sent me over 150 emails telling me about it - six pages of this:

I'm hoping that was a bug, not standard protocol. I switched to a new host, hopefully they are nicer than the last one.

I think that is just the gamercard refreshing. It does it to me at precisely 3am every day.

Nah. I dunno why exactly it does that at a regular interval either, just that it is somehow related to the gamer info update.

yeh, something like "Style" which will be signature, Retro etc and then chose the colour of certain things (although i've seen you adding more options).

I really do like it and got no url in the thing itself like other gamercard things, although it may come in handy when you want to get known.

I think you should be able to customize the gamer card. You could change the font, color or size of text. The size, background of the card.

Well, the way I've got it is that it loads all that information directly from a JSON file. I'll add an "Advanced Options" feature just for you, but I'm not sure how good it'll be.
EDIT: I've added two options: one to change the gamertag color, and another that changes the gamerscore/rep color. I'm unsure as to how I should go about recoloring the background, because PHP doesn't generate it - it copies it from an image file that looks like this. Here's a sample of the customization options added so far.

In other news, I finally got around to adding the new and vastly improved sig style that ska designed.

I don't know why it isn't working properly with your gamertag. For some reason, PHP doesn't think your avatar is a valid image resource. I've added better error checking, so it will work... but you won't be able to see your avatar.

Do me a favor. Change your gamer picture slightly. Just do a minor change or something to it, and then try it again.
As far as statistics go, I've served 50,000+ signatures with this over a few hundred gamertags. That hit counter doesn't seem to work properly because it resets every few thousand views.

@.Lycosa: It appears to work properly, what's the problem?
