Help advertise PHO with the Rotating Sig!
 

Hey guys, now that we are PHO again, its time to branch out into various forms of advertisement. One of the ideas I thought of was to advertise PHO in my signature. That's pretty straightforward thinking, except that I took it to another level.

The Rotating PHO Signature
Today, I present to you the PHO Rotating Signature.

The plan is to create a large number of banners for all the content we have here on PHO and to advertise them in my signature. This includes hacks, tools, guides and anything else noteworthy. The PHO Rotating Signature is a dynamic signature, it changes on it's own without you having to change anything, which is what makes it so awesome.

How does it work?
Above you'll see a banner advertising one of the hacks here linking to it's thread. The banner rotates every 30 mins and every time it gets clicked on. This gives everyone that sees this a fresh banner after every 30 mins on any forum, regardless of where this signature is placed. The idea behind this is to gain as many members as possible and for them to be interested in PHO again like old times.

Cool, but why are you telling us about your sig?
Ah, this is the rest of the plan. If you'd like to support PHO in some sort of way to help towards the future, I'm offering up the BBcode to this signature, and all you have to do is put it into your own signature on here and other forums you visit (that is, if you want to support us). The sig banners are quite large (500x200) so it would be understandable if you can't place it.

HTML Code:

Above is the BBCode, simply add it to your signature and that's all that's required. The chances are your hack is listed as a banner so that's a bonus in itself. Currently there's a banner for Liquid Crystal, Dark Violet, Pokémon Christmas, Pokémon Derpizard and Sappy Mod. There's plans to add a boat load more and they will start appearing on their own over time, no need to update any code.

I'd like to thank @AriNikoBradshaw for making some of these banners, and probably for making more in the future as well.

So, without further ado, I look forward to seeing this on your signatures!

It looks awesome! (I'll put it in my sig.)

I put it in my sig over at PC to advertise, but I kept my old sig over here. I figure it isn't as important to advertise the forum to users that are already here. :p

I ended up clicking on DarkViolet and it takes me to a random PHO page (of the ones that are advertised) each time. Shouldn't it take me to the DarkViolet thread?

I can confirm this is happening for me as well. Clicked on the sig just now with it showing Liquid Crystal. First I was taken to the LC page, but later clicks on the sig (with LC still showing) took me to Derpizard, Christmas, the Sappy Mod, Dark Violet, etc.

Click it once, then refresh the page with the sig. You'll see why it does this.

This is normal behaviour since once you click the sig, the page it was cannot change the image. This happens when one of the following are true:
  • You didn't refresh the page for 30 mins
  • Someone clicked the banner after you loaded the page
  • You click the banner multiple times without reloading

The banner number to show is determined server side, so it changes for everyone once it cycles to the next one, and the images are loaded upon the next page reload. Unfortunately these are impossible to overcome, but the chances of it happening often are not that high.
