    I know I said i was going to wait until training camp to do it, but might as well start it now, so people have some shiny new sigs for the beginning of this season and what not.

    Rules:

    -Orange denotes Superfan, you are allowed to pick ANY Chicago Bear, past or present, so long as he hasnt been picked previously. Non-Superfans are limited to current roster only.
    -For players who don't have numbers yet, i will finish it when they have a number.
    -If you pick a player that gets cut/traded before the start of the season, you can pick again, but only a player who hasn't been picked yet.
    -If you want to pick a player we acquire later (is not on the roster currently), you can switch to that, but it will basically be first come, first served. (just post in this thread you want to change, and i will make it so).
    -Anyone who did NOT participate in the the contest, but wants an Adopt-A-Bear sig can do so, but may only pick once all of the contest participants have, and you can only pick players who have not been picked already

    Draft order 2.0:

    Orange looks darker this year, because i went with the official RGB color palette. And you probably cant tell from the resolution, but the background is a shot of Soldier Field

    Wow, just realized that Payton was selected 10 years after Sayers, in the same spot: Round 1, Pick 4.

    Jimmors, thank you for taking the time to do these. Is there a way to alter the size down ever so slightly so two adopt a sigs can fit on one line (last year's adopt a bear/blackhawk fit on one line)?

    Hate to be the beggar, but imagine when 20 of us have these things. Post lengths will be huge.....

    And this is when you tell me that is a user error, and I say I've done everything exactly as it should be (highlight old sig, hit delete button, click insert image button, paste new sig address, hit enter). Literally, didn't hit a space bar, backspace, anything.

    And I offer as evidence........everyone who has received a 2014 adopt a bear sig has the same problem.

    I'll check w/ Ski on potential software compatibility issues.

    Its because they are hosted on what apears to be imgmur.com.

    Jimmers, try putting them in the media gallery, the send out the img url.

    Shouldnt matter where its hosted. Tried to use the media gallery, couldnt get it to work, so if someone else wants to create one and upload the sigs from here, then feel free.

    Ok, I upgraded the media area when I got home, and they added a lot of new features. So when you tried to upload it, I had not yet set the permissions.

    However they are working now. I started a Category called 2014 Adopt a Bear Signatures.

    Try Adding media to it.

    I have added Bearstuff's sig already. Try it now. Let me know what you think. I'm going to be pimping the Media section more with content etc.

    Plus it's easiest to manage and host images for others.

    I'm done. I fixed their sigs, and I'll upload them to the media area.

    They will have the BB code for them to use when they view that image..

    Ok, i screwed up. Completely forgetting about David Fales in the 6th, which when you include his weight, makes it 1949. Looking over the list, this was far more then anyone had predicted, and would only really shuffle the top 6 picks or so (basically it would be the reverse order of predictions, starting from heaviest to lowest).

    So, ill leav eit up to you guys to decide what to do...start over and include Fales and list the Draft order? Or just keep going from here? Like i said...only really effects the top 6 picks, people in the middle and the end would still be picking roughly the same spot. So, let me know what you guys want to do.

    Actually, ill re-do the draft. Its not fair to everyone to keep a wrong order, and i dont want it to seem like im hooking up Benji, Bearstuff and Bearjim by keeping it the way it is. Sorry guys.

    As penance, i shall remove myself from the order, and pick last, since im the one who screwed up.

    Honestly, I think we should just roll with it. Honest mistake.
