I thought urs was ok i just need to give more attention to detail with mine like ur sig at the mo is really polished and nice whereas mines a bit rugged round the edges, but practice makes perfect.

Edit: I'm not sure how to customize the text on my name more like uve made urs see thru i cnt seem to use ne effects on mine.

It's alright, but you need to make the edges transparent. Also read up on some colour design :) because a red gradient with 1px black border is barely readable. Make the border thicker or the text bigger. Still, it's good.

mattmagoo, no offence, but all your sigs seem to be the same style. A rounded rectangle of Photoshop-filtered background, with some Google Image Search images stuck on and some filtered text. Damn, it still looks good. But maybe you could try something more original :) Yes I'm aware of the hypocrisy *looks at own sig* but I will change that soon :)

EDIT: I see you changed it, Ernest. Gah, LENS FLARE!! ;)

i am almighty and since you said so i will allow you to carry on making these sigs so that everyone on the board can join together and become some kind of cult with you as their leader and eventually take over the world.

The bricks rock, especially over the logo, especially cooler if the logo was over actual bricks so it looks like it was painted on. Text is still hard to read.

EDIT: Like this

Making edges transparent: Ctrl+A to select all. Now go to Selection (I think) and do Inside/Outside feather. Set outside to 0 and inside to about 10, 7, or whatever works best. Now with this new selection, cut (Ctrl+X) and paste as new image (Ctrl+V). Save as a PNG file to preserve the multitransparency, OR paste over a background of some colour, such as the background colour of gp32x sig spaces :), Ctrl+D to drop selection, and save.
