Unfortunately we can't add this right now because it is a personal site and isn't a 'reputable' or 'trusted' image host.
I'm sure you're not out there grabbing IPs, but we do have to draw the line somewhere and we chose to draw it at personal sites. If you were to expand this and develop it into a more well known and trusted signature hosting site, we might be able to consider it. But right now it's very much a personal site used by a close group of friends so it doesn't meet our criteria. Sorry.
What is well known for you? Because TFS, as the largest F2p clan in runescape, includes over 150 people in our spreadsheet, that's a bit more than "a close group of friends"
We just had to find a way to keep our hiscores even if Jagex doesn't allow us.
Well known for us would be something that is commonly known throughout the entire RuneScape community. Like take RSBandB -- they have a really well set up, very well known, and very popular site. They probably have thousands of people using their signatures and they are a Jagex recognized site. While that's not required, it does help "establish" a website.
Another thing we consider is how fleshed out a website is. Like if you compare yours to RSBandB, yours has no design and isn't that fleshed out. In terms of functionality it's fine, but try to look at it from the standpoint of an outsider. If someone looks at a website with no design, and then compares it to one that does have a design and a very fleshed out website, they'll probably "trust" the latter one much more.
I'm sorry to put you on the spot like this, but I'm just trying to help you understand where we're coming from. Until you made this request, no one on the admin team had heard of your site. We're much more inclined to accept websites that are very well known around the entire RuneScape community, are recognized by Jagex, have thousands of visitors, and/or have a well established community. The whole point of this feature is to disallow any personal sites or "not very well known" sites because we have to protect our users from people who are farming IPs. That usually comes from "not very well known" sites and clan sites, so that's where we're drawing the line.
I'm sorry it came down to this, but I hope you can see it from our point of view. We're just trying to be as fair as possible and it's not fair if we allow in some personal/smaller/less known sites, but not others.
Feel free to send me a PM If you have any further questions.
