    Did you know that MilePoint lets you add images to your signature? Here's how to add your OpenFlights badge to it.
    1. Log into your OpenFlights, click Settings, then copy the contents of the "Bulletin board banner" box. It should look like this:
      Code:
      [url=http://openflights.org/user/jpatokal]
       [img]http://openflights.org/banner/jpatokal.png[/img][/url]
    2. Open the Signature page in your MilePoint profile: http://milepoint.com/forums/account/signature
    3. Paste the banner code
    4. Save and enjoy! The banner will automatically update itself when you add new flights, and clicks on it lead to your OpenFlights map.

    Isn't that just getting way too graphics intensive - am happy with my link.

    Not to mention that many of us have never been to Southeast Asia.

    Probably too much for people who are bandwidth conscious too :)

    I've taken my off, but certainly with all the ads, it makes little difference.

    Having the option to add graphics to one's signature is neat, and I think it is another feature which sets Milepoint apart from FlyerTalk.

    That said, I agree there should probably be a size limit, both in terms of dimensions and in terms of file size, so that pages load reasonably quickly on computers as well as smart phones.

    Yes, with all the bells and whistles MP already has, that's definitely one thing I don't want to see cluttering up the page.

    It's a static image because squeezing a world map into 70 pixels wouldn't make much sense... but yeah, a streamlined version, perhaps with a white background to blend in better, might be worth looking at.
