Should there be a [mroogle] tag for shortening signature code?

    I'm all for it if the mods don't think it's a huge hassle. Sounds like a good idea.

    I'm not sure vBulletin could even be configured to read such a tag
    My guess is... no

    But I doubt there would be enough usage of it to justify the trouble anyway

    I'm guessing that the gods would all have to agree to add it...

    It's doable, and definitely easy to add. All it takes is this HTML:
    HTML:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="http://mroogle.*************" target="_blank"><font size="3"><b><font color="Red">M</font><font color="Blue">R</font><font color="Green">o</font><font color="#e0de1f">o</font><font color="Blue">g</font><font color="Green">l</font><font color="Red">e</font></b></font></a>
    But I don't think you could just use [mroogle] with the version of vBulletin this site is running. It'd have to be [mroogle][/mroogle]

    Hey, even if we have to put both the start and end code that would be way better than the madness it requires now.

    I'd love to have a colored Mroogle link under my location. It would have it's own designated spot above my IM icons, away from my signature. :)

    But I think it would lose it's prominence that way, we want it to be somewhere that people would check... I honestly rarely look at locations.

    @ xbuddycorex - "madness it requires now"? :confused: It's a URL, not even a particularly long one. I know it can eat up space if you want the coloured letters (with the markup being included in the signature character limit) but it's not that bad, really.


    I'd LOVE to see a MRoogle tag but that is totally up to the admins of this site.

    Interesting and good to know
    I did not know MR could customize its own tags for parsing
    It would be good for standardization I suppose

    I am talking about the colored mockup, and it is nothing short of madness. How did you make all that you have fit? I'm at the limit and I had to make both of my Os green :-/

    I know PHPBB let you. I think I have seen some custom tags on this forum too. like the [embedguide] one.

    PHPBB3 is like that. That is a good point. but still it is shorter than it is now.

    And the other 10% don't understand what we're asking for, haha.

    I like it the way it is now. Having it in your sig right now says, "I am so dedicated to the cause of Mroogle that I am willing to forgo other information in my signature just to let you know a place to search the forums is in colorful and stylish fashion." That is dedication!


    (actually I don't care one way or the other)
