As you can see, people have been ignoring the Forum Guidelines -> Signature rules lately. 600 pixels are the maximum width you can have and yet I see people putting several small long banners together in a row and they add up to 1000+ pixels !!! This is outrageous. The Moderating Team here think it's time to put some order in this. So please adjust your signature to make it fit within 600 pixels width-wise.

This only applys to images currently, but if you have some really long quotes, you should try to shrink it down a little. Remember, the 250 height limit apply to both images AND text. I will address it again after New Year. For now, please comply with the current rules. Much appreciated. Thank you.

What I have in mind right now is 1 line of text = 20pixels. But that's not final, I still have to discuss it with Takumi Trueno. For now, we'll let you slide even if you have text that exceed the 250 height limit.

The Public Service Announcement will be there in everyone's signature until I clarify the new signature/avatar rules again shortly after New Year's Day. Thanks for bring it up too, aftermath. smile.gif

Shrunk the text down of my sig to match the limit of 600 pixels. I know it doesnt apply to text (yet), but better safe than sorry.

Is my sig alright now? :3 (Including height?)

So to double check, 1 line of text/space (i.e. an empty line with no text) is 20 pixels in height, and in total your signature cannot exceed 240 pixels, correct?

So mine (100 px for the graphics part, 19 px for the userbar and 60 px for the text, which adds up to 179 px) is fine, right?

That means I'm using the max possible height o_o

100 (pic) + [ 7 lines x 20pixels ] = 240pixels :3

so that people update their sigs so they dont complain when they're removed completely. now nobody has an excuse.

AE86 Levin -- your signature is 300px in height, excluding the "QUOTE" line. too big.

AE86 RULZ -- your signature is 236px in height. you're fine

Just to announce to everyone that there's maybe gonna be some changes in the signatures size limit happy.gif

Just to clarify, the signature can be 600pix height?? but what about the weight of it? Is there a limit ?

the signatures is 600px in WIDTH. (ie. from side to side)

the HEIGHT (ie. top to bottom) is 250px.

so its a maximum of 600x250px for your entire signature block.

the size of the signatures (ie. how big they are in terms of Kilobytes) is not subject to change. it's still set at 150kb for the image(s).

Btw, if it's ok if my siggy like this? If it's too wide, i'll remove it ...

Thx ..

Do you know how wide one userbar banner is ? I answer for you, 350pixels. How wide is two userbars in a row side by side like that in your signature ? Let see, 350 x 2 = 700. Need I say more ?
