Looks great! Perhaps the forum-related topics should have their own section? Actually, it's probably best to wait on that until we have a few more of them - a section for only a couple of topics would look kind of lonely

How do you add your banner/signature at the bottom like most people do?

Try hard, try your best, and nothing will go unrewarded.

Go to the main discussion page, scroll to the bottom, and you should see a link that says “Change your signature”.

However, I think you've figured it out since you already have a forum signature.

@ThE_PiXeL_MasTeR: Welcome to Scratch! I would suggest that you ask your question(s) relating to scripting in the Help with Scripts forum or the Questions about Scratch forum if its a question relating to the Scratch Website. That allows more users to see them compared to when they're being posted on a separate topic.
