1) How can you put Avatars into your sig - I've seen other members do this. I want my Avatar to be like Green-Ireland, Libt-Ireland, Oth-Ireland, Ind-Ireland

2) How can you change the EV count on custom maps as I've seen done on some maps?

Help would be much appreciated.. Smiley

3) How do you get your political matrix score underneath your avatar?

1. Click on the 'Home' link at the top left hand corner of this page.
2. Fill in the 'Member Login' Username and Password halfway down the page on the right hand side.
3. Click on 'View my Atlas Info'
4. You should find the Political Matrix space beneath all of the member details.

2) How can you change the EV count on custom maps as I've seen done on some maps?

After recieving the link for the map, you can change the EV number for a state by changing the second number after a state's two letter id. Interestingly enough, letters also work, if you care to have those on your map.

1. Click on the button above.
2. Click on the 'Show Map Link' button near the bottom of the page.
3. On that link you can see that after each state there are 3 numbers.

The first controls the party: 1=Democratic; 2=Republican; 3=Independent; 0,4 or I think any other single digit=Tossup.

The second number controls the EV given to the state.

The third number controls the percentage shading assigned to the state from 3 = >30% to 9 = >90%.

Hi,
To see the matrix scores, you also need to link your forum and atlas accounts.  On your myatlas page, there is a section to link your forum account by typing in your forum username and password.  Once this is done and you entered your matrix scores, they will appear under your avatar.
Enjoy,
Dave

What I did is copy the iamge of the state, went into MS paint, covered the old letters, changed the color, and retyped the new letters in the middle of the state/country using Garamond font size 9.
