Duck Fever FAQs: E-mail & Forum Signatures

Still have questions about Duck Fever?
Return to the Duck Fever Help Center. Or e-mail us at duckfever@ducks.org.


  • How does Duck Fever work in e-mail and forum signatures?

Duck Fever can be displayed easily by inserting your badge or a text link in your e-mail or forum signature. By adding it just one time, each e-mail you send will be another opportunity for your online contacts to contribute to your DU fund-raising campaign. Note: Not all e-mail providers or forums will allow you to insert a link to your donation page, and most will not accommodate images. Please consult the Help section within your e-mail system or contact a system administrator at your forum for additional information.

  • How do I add a Duck Fever badge to my e-mail signature?

It depends what e-mail provider you are using. Many will have a custom signature option in their Options or Settings menus, easily accessible from your mailbox. However, depending on your experience with creating e-mail signatures, we recommend a simple text-only option. This guarantees that more of your e-mail recipients will see your message and be able to visit your donation page. Example: "I'm Raising $500 for Ducks Unlimited! Click here to help." If your e-mail provider allows HTML in your signature, provide a link to your donation page. The address appears on your Duck Fever Dashboard under "My Public Donation Page." If your e-mail provider does not accept HTML, simply paste in the donation page address and your recipients can copy and paste it into their own browser to visit the page. If you have additional questions about inserting a badge or donation page link in your e-mail signature, please consult the Help section within your e-mail program.

  • Which badge sizes are best for signatures?

While any of the three available Duck Fever badge sizes will work in an e-mail or forum signature, the ideal candidates are the button and banner styles, depending on the visibility you're hoping to achieve by including the image.

  • I tried to insert my badge as an image, but my e-mail recipients can't see it. What else can I do?

Because so few e-mail clients allow images in signatures, we highly recommend using a text-only option at this time. Example: "I'm Raising $500 for the Ducks! Click here to help." If possible, include a link to your donation page. The address is available on your Duck Fever Dashboard under "My Public Donation Page."

  • If I can't insert my badge in my signature, how else can I distribute it through e-mail?

If you want to send your badge via e-mail and cannot insert it in your signature, you may be able to send it in the body of your e-mail. Many e-mail clients provide an HTML view of your message or have an image-insertion tool. Please consult the Help section of your e-mail program for more information. If you cannot insert an image, consider sending a text link to your friends and family with a brief explanation of Duck Fever and why you're raising money for DU.

  • How do I include Duck Fever in my signature on the DU Member Forums?

The easiest way to promote your Duck Fever campaign using your signature in the DU Member Forums is to copy and paste the link to your donation page. You can find the address on your Duck Fever Dashboard, under "My Public Donation Page."

To edit your signature in the DU Member Forums, click on "My Settings" at the top right, then "Edit Signature" in the left-hand "Your Profile" menu on the next page. You can copy and paste the address easily into the text box. Consider adding a couple lines about why you're raising money or encouraging others to donate and/or sign up for their own Duck Fever campaign.

  • I can't get any of the methods to work for my forum signature. What else can I do?
