Today’s post is a shoutout to Lanjelin’s Signature Generator. Now, through the years, there have been a lot of WoW signature generators out there. Many of these promised all sorts of shiny things like huge amounts of customization and automatic updating and then failed to deliver. Heck, I have some of these “automatic updating” banners bookmarked that still say I’m level 70 and spec’d 41/20/0.

So I gave up on signatures for a while, figuring they weren’t really worth the trouble of upkeep, but then I stumbled across Lanjelin’s Signature Generator, which is perfect for alt-o-holics or people who just want something simple. Check it out:

Isn’t that cool? It gets right down to business and tells you the race/class/level of my active characters that I want it to display.

The best part is that Lanjelin is active with it; I submitted a bug recently and it was fixed within a couple of hours. In addition, we had a very nice e-mail exchange.

So if you have billions of characters and want a nice compact way to display them, go check it out :3

Edit:

I got some feedback from Lanjelin on Monday, December 6:

“Thanks for the positive feedback, glad you like my signature generator.

Got some bad news about it though, Blizzard have decided to release a new version of Armory, on a new server/address with everything completely rewritten.

As for now, they haven’t released a way for 3rd-party sites to fetch data from Armory, so my signature generator is currently not able to update/add any characters.

I even made it ready for Cataclysm races, when I get this thrown in my face.

Hope to get it back up & running as soon as possible.”

    That’s fantastic! I’d been looking for something like this to use on our guild forums so it wasn’t huge and obnoxious. Good find, Pike!

    Mine is almost as much a theme as yours is XD

    @ Stop – Isn’t it great?

    @ Marianne – Haha, yeah, SUPER obvious what classes/races I like… also, I fixed your comment. Your link should be showing up now! (Not sure why the commenting system here likes to mess up links)

  4. Miku says:

    Out of curiosity, what was the bug?

  5. Cialbi says:

    Seen that one a few times lately. It would be a bit odd for me right now, seeing as I’d only have 3 entries.

    Still, thanks for the info!

  6. Pike says:

    @ Miku – The generator would not accept realms with more than two words in the name (for example, “The Venture Co”. Fixed now, though.

    @ Cialbi – Yeeeah, it definitely looks better with more characters…

    The lack of a mage in that sig is heartbreaking T_T

    You know you want your own squirtle. You know it.

  8. Rades says:

    Oooh these sigs are great! Concise and sharp!! I’ll use these from now on. :D

  9. Pike says:

    @ Krizzlybear – you know what, you’re right. *pledges to start leveling mage again*

    @ Rades – <3

  11. Sarai says:

    @ Lanjelin – Oh, I’m sorry to hear that! I’ll update the post so everyone knows, though. I hope it gets sorted out soon.
