More info on writing a signature:

Signatures currently have a 255 character limit but the way characters are counted is not entirely intuitive and there are ways to write a "longer" signature if you know how characters are counted. The following is a complete and thoroughly tested explanation for how this forum's signature editor counts characters.

1) Spaces and Carriage Returns (Enter) each count as 1 character. The following signature is 256 chars long even though there are only 205 actual characters present along with 26 spaces and 25 carriage returns.

2) Most tags count as 1 character for each tag (1 for opening tag and 1 for closing tag). This includes [​b], [​i], [​u], [​code], [​list] and [​list=X], [​img], [​url], [​spoiler], [​strike], all of the preceding tags in closing style [​/tag], and [​*].

3) There appear to be two special tags: [​size=#] and [​color=#######]. Size has integer limits of 1 to 200 and color has hexadecimal limits of 000000 to FFFFFF. Provided the tags follow those limits, they count for 1 character total including the closing tag. Any text enclosed in those tags counts for 0 characters unless there is a space somewhere in the text inside that tag, then the text counts for the full standard 1 char = 1 char and both the opening size or color tag and the closing size or color tag count for 1 char each.
Within limits:
[​size=1]testtesttest[​/size] = 1 character
[​size=1]test testtest[​/size] = 15 characters
[​size=200]testtesttest[​/size] = 1 character
[​size=200]test testtest[​/size] = 15 characters
[​color=#00FFFF]testtesttest[​/color] = 1 character
[​color=#00FFFF]test testtest[​/color] = 15 characters
[​color=#CB1AF5]testtesttest[​/color] = 1 character
[​color=#CB1AF5]test testtest[​/color] = 15 characters
Not within limits:
[​size=201]testtesttest[​/size] = 1 character (Error message, tag doesn't work, displays as text)
[​size=201]test testtest[​/size] = 15 characters (tag doesn't work, displays as text)
[​size=-1]testtesttest[​/size] = 1 character (tag doesn't work, displays as text)
[​size=-1]test testtest[​/size] = 15 characters (tag doesn't work, displays as text)
[​color=#ZZA0]testtesttest[​/color] - 1 character (tag doesn't work, displays as text)
[​color=#ZZA0]test testtest[​/color] - 15 characters (tag doesn't work, displays as text)
Do note that the above reference guide utilizes zero-width-spaces so that you can see the tags how they would look while editing but that also makes them non-copyable unless you remove the zero-width-spaces first. Hope this helps someone out. Try not to abuse the system and be careful about the width of your signature when using text without spaces. This is especially noticeable on mobile devices but you can simulate the problem by shrinking your browser to look more like what it would look like on a cell phone or tablet to verify that your signature doesn't make the forum look ugly.

Here's my complete signature as an example. To view tags simply quote this message and you'll see how it's written.

This info should be exportable from the game ("share stats"). :)

Indeed. That would be quite nice although we'd probably need a few options for customizing the output.

That idea has been suggested many times, the only problem with that is that it would require the game to ask for extra permissions (Like access to the web) and that does off put some players,

One of my favorite things about Andor's Trail is that you are able to play while offline (Like on an airplane)

I'd say we need a companion app for AT. One that can use your current saves and make smart stuff with them, but put in a separate app to avoid adding new permissions in AT.

Pyrizzle, we're not asking the game to update the forum signature automatically, we just want a button in-game that you click that saves your stats in a specific format to the clipboard so that you can then go paste the signature in yourself. The code would be fairly simple since it's just parsing text and saving the text to the clipboard. That shouldn't require any additional permissions except perhaps the clipboard access if that is something separate.

In that case... +1!!!!

Very smart idea and that would be very very easy to add. Nice suggestion!

Or we could just make the highscores connect through facebook.

Just as a side note since I mentioned this on another thread recently, add an 'updated date' to your signature if you add your stats.
Take a stop by my game thread for some forum fun!!!
