If you like to make sigs so much, you might consider helping out the site with reviews and the likes, and get a VIP membership. Once you have that, you are allowed to make Game Banners for the site ;)

It's kinda like making a signature for a game, only a bit more advanced than a signature. OMG

Banner making has really helped me to improve in Photoshop.
(Of course, if I hadn't recieved (and still do recieve) a lot of help from taikara, I would never have had the faith in myself to ever attempt anything like it.) :P

Love to help the site Tom, where do I start?

Well, the most obvious way of helping out is by reviewing games:
1. Go here.
2. Pick a game you'd like to review and claim the review by PMing a crew member.
3. Play the game and write the review (and if possible take screenshots as well).
4. PM a crew member to get the link where you can upload the files.
5. Compress the files and upload them.
6. Repeat steps 1-5.:P
Alternatively, you could go scouting for other games we might add to the site, write walkthroughs or strategy guides or draw maps. Things like that.

A. Not everyone is good at writing reviews / people like Photoshop beterrrrrr (^^)
B. More banners
-More banners = more ads for games
-More ads for games = more browsing
-More browsign = more dls
-More dls = more popularity for AR
-More popularity = more people / awards n stuff.
C. Cause um...I said so?  :) :)

It would make the whole quality check thing a lot more difficult, though. Don't forget we don't just want more banners, we want good banners.

By the way, it isn't as if reviewing is the only way people can contribute. There's lots of alternatives. For example, they can volunteer to take screenshots, write walkthroughs or play guides, point out interesting news bits for the TTW section, draw maps or simply scout for new games.

Do you mean to suggest that only VIPs can make good banners dear ruffles? xD ^^

EDIT: Ugh...i really need to make a new sig, dislike this one.
