    Only if the sig is about the text otherwise it's just there to say who made it and should blend into the bg.

    Text is one of the only core elements who's absence can make the sig better.
    I suck at text.

    Text should NOT be the focal of your work.
    Text is simple to add something extra in, and claim your work as your own.
    For those of you who do not know, a 'tag' is a signature without text. A 'sig' has text.

    I thought they were given the name signature because you put them in your signature.

    They are, I'm just saying that if they don't have text then in the graphics community they are considered a 'tag'.

    If you can't do text don't put it in - simple.

    Shit text = Shit sig.
