    Completely N00b: Level Up Signatures

    I know HTML fairly well, but that about covers my coding experience. In fact, I don't know where to put this in because I don't know what code to use. And I don't want to pay for anyone to do it for me. So keep that in mind.

    Does anyone have an idea where I can get/make one using my own image background? This idea is sort of related to the internetometer or this: http://www.smashboar...ad.php?t=228866 or that: http://mc.jamonek.com/create It would be even greater if I can make my own generator, but I want it to be free. Any way to do this?

    If you don't know what I'm talking about: basically, the more clicks your signature gets the higher "your level is"

    So you want a signature that will display different details based on the the particular user?

    That needs a backend technology. Which one depends on you... you can go with PHP as a common one, widely used. You'd also need a database/system to store the clicks. From there, it gets significantly more complicated, as if its for your own site, you can do it via text/html, but if you want others to be able to link it, you'll wanna embed the text onto the image, which is a bit more difficult.

    Thank you. PHP, eh? It looks simple enough, and I think I know a little bit of it without knowing. XD However, does anyone have a possible tutorial? *gets an awkward silence* Thought so. Well, if anyone can help, that would be rad.

    Another game that uses this idea (sort of) is Dragon Cave, although I think the one that best represents my idea is the Super Smash Bros Brawl one, but sadly that one is dead.
