Default New signature rules

As most of you have noticed, the size of the images in the signatures of some members is getting more and more ridiculous. We have, therefore, decided that the new maximum size for the images in signatures will be 350x250 pixels. This will ensure that the focus is kept on members' replies, especially in large threads such as the ones in the Matches forum. Please note that this rule WILL be enforced and that any oversized signatures WILL be removed.

New rule as of February 5th 2011: maximum one photo per signature.

New rule as of December 19th 2011: animated images/videos in sigs are off. You have until January 1st 2012 to adjust your sigs.

We would appreciate if the members would resize their signatures to conform to the new rules.


Much appreciated

Nick

Of course you can, using any photo editing software. Even Microsoft Paint will do it.

The rule applies to the overall size of the signature, regardless of whether it's text or images. Yours is too big as it stands.

Thank you for this. No more gigantic signatures.

Redsun, yours is fine.

Guys, it's simple. Maximum size: 350 x 250, which applies to both images and text. If it's bigger, resize it.

You could take a print screen, crop the area that your signature occupies and see how big it is.

Or, the easier way, just compare it to a 350x250 image and make sure it's not much bigger than that

The MesureIt extension for Firefox is of great help:

I guess my fancy line of squares is oversized

Long time ago font size in sigs could be changed (I'd gladly switch to 7 or 8 pt) -- whatever happened to that function ?

Most of the time people would change the size of the font upwards (well, almost all of the time) and we'd end up with even worse stuff than this small photo problem.

Honestly though, I'm starting to think this exact size thing is kinda exaggerated

I mean some people have a sig that's wider than the allowed size but it can't be considered oversized (like myself, R&B forever, Besi and others I can't remember). While others have a sig that's not too big either but the font could be streching it a bit more than the allowed size (like Passion's sig).

The original problem was people having almost 'wallpapers' in their sigs; those are the ones who should be asked to resize it.

Flexibility people
