AniDB does NOT offer any files for download, streaming or whatever means you can think of, NOR does AniDB host any files.
All questions about downloads/ed2k/BitTorrent/... links/clients/servers/whatever will be locked and removed without warning.

It is possible to set a forum signature in your UserPage.
To do this, simply click the edit button on the bottom of the page and copy the BB code from the signature server.
For more information on how to make your own signatures see SigServer.

For the AniDB forum the maximum signature image dimensions are 500x200 and the max signature image file size is 100,000 bytes, but please do not feel the need to max these out. Smaller is often better.
