    Sigr - Forum Signature Generator, feedback.

    I am looking for feedback on a personal project: http://sigr.me

    I created the website so i could improve my knowledge of jQuery and PHP, while also attempting to create something useful.

    The website basically generates forum signatures based on your social networking links. Sort of like userbars, but better

    Let me know what you guys think

    I'm loving the style. The design is fantastic and the methodology is intuitive. Couple of things though:
    You need to make sure that, for example on Facebook, users know what data to input. People may not know they can even have a custom URL on Facebook, so you'll have to give instructions about this.
    There's also no way to remove symbols once you've added them, forcing me to refresh the page.
    The website symbol looks like another service, not a general URL. Something like a globe would be more appropriate than a W.
    There's no reason not to generate HTML. There's no use in limiting the utility of your service.

    But this is good. Very good. I like it very much.

    Based on comments from various forums ive added:
    - Preview
    - HTML code output
    - Descriptions (on the labels) for each box so users know exactly what to enter
    - Tweet button - sends a tweet about sigr

    I think it's difficult to have an opinion about a site that can't be reached. I get 404-not found.

    Agreed, after the first post I was interested in checking this site out, but get a message saying that it does not exist.
