Page updated 7 September 2016 - reference to forum and youtube 640x360.
Hyperlinks (clickable links) for iRacing forum signatures (not your actual post).
My images above are 20 kilobytes. The smaller the better.
Need to compress yours? Google compress image size online or similar.
Not everyone has good internet, best practice, don't link to huge animated gifs.
Signatures can be disabled in your profile options, "View Post Signatues".
Adding a link to the body of your post, the forum uses a different syntax eg; [URL="http://edracing.com"][u]Ed's site[/u][/URL]
- TWITCH users.
If the image below is missing, streambadge
's account may be "suspended" again.
A text link in your forum sig will avoid caching a live/offline image
My Twitch channel
If you prefer an IMAGE, I worked this out via an iRacing signature. Example:
Replace YOUR-ACCOUNT with your own Twitch user account.
When you change status, the image shows a different image - IF the image (page) is reloaded.
I expect many people will only see a cached image, be it offline or live.
The different images I saw while testing; these images are not linked:
Add EdRacing banner to your Twitch info
Per a request, the image below is sized 320px wide for Twitch.
Copy the image (right click image, 'save image as' to your desktop etc)
then add to Twitch info panel, link to http://www.edracing.com
Let your viewers know where to get iRacing help.

* The iRacing forum is FUBAR; long threads and old attachments disappear.
* The SEARCH function is FUBAR; at this point we have no choice but suffer it.
