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

It's 450 x 319 px so it's too big. Please find a smaller one ;)

Hassan 22-04-2006 16:52

Yuchen Li 22-04-2006 19:29

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.

Yuchen Li 22-04-2006 19:49

I had been deleted my pictures, is that OK ?

Redsun 22-04-2006 23:19

hımm.mine is normal?

Thank you for this. No more gigantic signatures.

Redsun, yours is fine.

red&black_fever 23-04-2006 02:20

so, I have to take mine down?

Pipa 23-04-2006 05:02

Will I need to change my sig?? It's not big but only long...
It's 626x181

Italian Tsar 23-04-2006 07:01

Well, as regards my sig, i do have my doubts....? :tongue:

scharatz 23-04-2006 11:11

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

Passion for *9* 23-04-2006 11:21

How do I check the size of the text ? :D

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 :tongue:

David 23-04-2006 12:01

The MesureIt extension for Firefox is of great help:

Passion for *9* 23-04-2006 12:05

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 ?

David 23-04-2006 12:12

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.

Kyara 23-04-2006 16:22

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

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 :tongue:

sivlE 23-04-2006 21:17

My signature picture is 270x289 is that too big? It is pretty close.

Yes, it's too big especially with the text added on. Find a smaller one.

scharatz 28-04-2006 12:17

Reminder about the new rule.

Please resize your signatures guys.

Hassan 28-04-2006 12:20

I think my signature is Okay

That's your choice.

red&black_fever 02-05-2006 07:32

instead of max width+heigh.... can we have a max area?
As most of our sig's are square it is easy to calculate, and doesn't discriminate against those who have (had) long banner like sigs?

The whole point of having a maximum size and width is to stop signatures from being longer or wider than allowed.
Doing it your way completely diminishes the point of having any rules altogether.

Ok, my bad. I thought the rules were for overall space consumption by sigs.

Milanista10 02-05-2006 21:20
