This thread would help newbies, so they wouldn't need to make new threads to find out the information they are lookin' for. so i thought maybe more experienced artists could help out newbies in that way.
what do you think?

i wanna know exactly how you made your sig so i can copy your style

are you asking me?
its very simple and can be explained in few steps.
1) i made a grungy background using some grunge brushes from devian art
http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/psbrushes/?order=5
you can find details about grunge bg's at www.good-tutorials.com designing section
between grunge layers i made some color adjustment layers (layer->new adjustment layer->color balance) to give it a brown, dirty color.
then i just cut out those 3 manson pics i found on net and a shock symbol, added 'marilyn manson' using uncle typewriter font (www.dafont.com), added black border and some more text, using blind font and applying 1px black stroke to it
oh and i also used some tech brushes on border.
easy as dat!
