Frequently Asked Questions
What are these tickers for? play_fill
We created the first graphical tickers in 2003. Tickers were originally designed to visualize pregnancy progress for FertilityFriend.com's Pregnancy Tracker.
Tickers are used on message board signature, blogs, web pages, email signatures... They graphically display progress towards a goal (see the various ticker types available on TickerFactory.com).
How do I login? play_fill
TickerFactory.com does not use any registration system or ask for any personal identification (such as email address). Tickers using data that needs to be updated (weight loss, exercise...) only requires you to know the ticker web address and the PIN protecting the modifications to its data. If you use the code provided on TickerFactory.com, just clicking on your ticker will lead you to its update page. From there you can edit its style and its data.
What is the PIN? play_fill
TickerFactory.com does not use any registration system or ask for any personal identification (such as email address). Tickers using data that needs updating (weight loss, exercise...) only require you to know the ticker web address and the PIN protecting the modifications to its data. The PIN prevents unwanted modification of the ticker while allowing you to keep the same web address for your ticker.
The weight loss ticker also provides an additional setting which allows you to protect the historical data by your PIN for extra privacy. Please note that if you lose your PIN we will be unable to provide access to your ticker data as we do not ask for identifying information as part of our privacy setup.
How can I create multiple tickers? play_fill
Each ticker is independent. You can create as many tickers as you need. Visit tickerfactory.com and then pick a ticker category. In some cases you will see a "new ticker" button on the page if you were creating tickers with data stored on the site.
