Looks like it's the URL. The pict is there when you first load, but then it disappears and even a forced refresh to the cache doesn't bring it back.

You'll need to find a host where the URL is shorter or less cryptic.

The red x box is pointing to a photo that no longer exists.

But I can view the photo in the photo section now.

Go to photos and search user name cobra marty and the photo comes up.

There could be limits on signature length though. So even though you may be using the right location (URL) for the pict, it still won't show up. Follow along here with the process below.

To reference a picture you want, right click it and a menu pops up. Select "Properties" all the way at the bottom.

Another little properties box pops up. You'll see in the middle an address, or location referred to as a URL. This is the actual reference to the pict by itself. This is what's used to generate the pict for a signature.

If you highlight that URL and copy it, then paste it in your browser address bar, hit GO, the pict should appear by itself. That helps you confirm the pict is available.

If it's not showing up in your signature, it's either a typo error (missing a bracket or something like that), or it could be the site restricts signatures to a certain maximum character length, sometimes 30 to 40 characters max. In any case, that particular URL doesn't pull up a picture.

Here's the URL to the only pict I could find for you.
http://www.offshoreonly.com/gallery/...9_87-thumb.JPG

It works fine as a signature graphic.

Here's a link to the help page explaining all the brackets and formatting to get the right syntax down.
