There's now a new way you can help promote this site on other forums you visit and at the same time let other potential gamers in your area know you are looking for a game. Enter the Pen & Paper Games userbar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Userbar), which you will see sported at the bottom of this message in my signature. The bar you see below is automatically generate each time it is refreshed, so whenever you make a change here, it will be reflected on your bar wherever you used it. Currently the bar displays what you're looking for, LFG or LFP, your city and state, and the website URL. If you aren't actively looking for a group, it will show "Player" or "GM" instead. If you haven't entered enough information to build the bar, it will instead display, "LISTED ON PENANDPAPERGAMES.COM"

You'll find the code you need to cut and paste into your signature line or on any other webpage, as well as a display of what your bar looks like, under the Edit Signature (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/profile.php?do=editsignature) link in the User CP (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/usercp.php). If you use the forum code or HTML as listed, it will link anyone clicks on it back directly to your profile.

You are encouraged and welcome to use this on any forums you visit.

I do plan on making a larger version if there is enough interest, that will give even more player statistics in your signature image.

Enjoy! And thank you for your help in promoting the site.

Sorry about that, Dragonmamma. You should be able to see it now. When you go to the Edit Signature window you should see something like the screenshot attached to this message below.

I do have one suggestion. If possible it would be nice to have that bar be a little bigger so that it is easier to read.
