New signature tool with prosper data available

Yesterday the new lender signatures were introduced by Based on an idea from  nonattender this new tool allows to transform key lender stats figures into an image, which can be used in a posters signature at the prosper forum.

wiseclerk prosper lender stats image example

Once created the images will update daily automatically.

The discussion thread on this new tool was a hot topic. After several suggestions, a couple of hours later a further signature tool, this time for the borrowers was offered.

Example of borrower signature (size decreased, original is larger):

Wiseclerk prosper borrower signature image

We will see how this further develops.
