New Signature Size Limit.

Some of us have noticed that a few members have some really huge sigs. These are overpowering posts, making it a pain to scroll through pages, and I suspect are a nightmare to people still on dial up.

So we have decided to bring in a mandatory sig size limit for both picture and text that will apply to all members.



While it is ok for a sig to be the width of a post, without breaking the walls of course, it isn't ok for them to be any higher than the red rectangle above which is 130 pixels. We feel that is way big enough.

Everyone will get a week or so grace to give you all time to read this and do something about your sig yourself if it exceeds the size limit. After that, we will begin leaving messages in oversized sigs to reduce them, and if they are not fixed in a resonable amount of time, we will delete them.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

Some peoples' browsers have a hard time loading freakishly huge images, so it really works out well for everybody. And besides, signatures don't need to be incredibly huge. The size decided on is perfectly fine. I don't see why it's really a problem.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

First off Austin Al, flameing an administrator is an incredibly stupid thing to do. I seriously suggest you change your tone, or I will give you a permanent holiday away from this site and you won't need to worry anymore about sig sizes, savvy?

It isn't just your fault. There are a few sigs in here that really do go over the top.

It matters because every member on this site has the right to resonable access, and shouldn't have to sit and wait for ages for every page to load just because someone has a massive sig. It is also very annoying to have to scroll like a maniac just to get past the darn things and find the next post in a thread.

This is the rule that has been decided on. It isn't up for compromise. I think the limit is very resonable.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

This doesn't concern just you, alot of members have really oversized signatures. Anyway, it isn't a big deal. It isn't very difficult to keep a signature under the height of the red box.

Edit: Ark got there before me.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

Thanks Arkacia, some of the sigs were getting out of hand. If I remember correctly sigs also consume bandwidth on the board and some sites don't even allow them.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

Is my signature fine?

And a question. Didn't Shaggy make this site? I always though he did, but I never had a reason to think that.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

Austin Al, that wasn't a threat, it was a promise .

You can shrink images down in programs like paint, photoshop ect. I ususally use paint myself, find it the easiest.

Tiny Bronco, yes you are right. Shaggy did make this site. I just help him out where I can. Your sig is too high I'm afraid. The new limit is 130 pixels, text or images or both.

Re: New Signature Size Limit.

I got rid of my happiness quote.
How do you find how many pixels there are in a signature?
