Hey there man. In order to have a sig pic, you have to have 75 posts and forum permissions are detailed here: http://www.gigathreads.com/Forum_Mem...Hierarchy.html. You can greet a few of the new folks and welcome them aboard and those 75 posts take no time or you can bypass that requirement by becoming a site supporter. The info for that can be found in your User CP under "Paid Subscriptions" in the menu on the left of the page. There are several levels and price ranges to choose from. BTW, I like your avatar.
