    @Spiritburner , I had a brief go at adding a small bitmap image to my signature.
    From what I can see it needs to be 3rd party hosting for the image, is this correct?

    I'll dust off photobucket later and have another go :content:

    There's no option supplied to upload files for the signature.
    Unless it's not an image you already have posted at another place at the site. Then you can use the address it got when uploading it there.
    But the correct way is of course to use a 3rd party service.
    Oh, well... the correct way is rather to just use text.;)
