Since this is the signature thread, i hope you dont mind me using this to help me make my signature. allow me to explain.
I made the attatched image on my computer with a very unique name. i'll post it here, just like this. i will then go on a search engine and look for its exact name, find it, open it up in a new window, and put the link to that window in the "signature" window in "my controls."
Phew!

Edit:Hmmm... it did not work. ermm2.gif I shall think about this

Attachment is solely for download only, you should not be using it as a upload place in the first place. There are tons of uploader sites out there. Try http://imageshack.us/ Oh, and I removed your attachment.

If you don't see the red line across your sig, you are fine, within the height limit. However, if you do see a red line across your sig, please reduce the number of line of text in your sig or shrink down the dimension/size of the image(s) you have in the signature. Hope that clears up.

So my signature got removed... why?

While I suppose the file size itself was somewhat large, it wasn't uploaded through the forum but through another site but just linked to it, so I don't see what the problem is.

the max. size limit for signature is 150KB. yours is 2826KB.

nobody wants to load an extra 2MB of data just for a single person's signature.

^ Perhaps... but at the same time, I'd like to think that the main purpose of it was so that the forum's database doesn't get overloaded with massive signatures from each and every member. Like I said, it was uploaded through another site and isn't using up the site's resources.

Maybe nobody wants to load an extra 2MB, but that amount of space is literally just a few grains of sand if you own a computer that is less than ten years old. Plus it seemed like other posters were digging the image anyway tongue.gif

It was funny. But it's not so funny when you're loading a page and you have to wait a bunch of extra time just because of one person's sig. The real point of having a filesize limit on sigs isn't because of loading on IDW's server, it's because this is a message board which should load quickly for its users. When someone's sig is 2MB, that gets shot out the window. tongue.gif

Usually, we are not too strict on filesize limit when it comes to the signature rules. 200KB, 250KB, .. etc, we can let you slide if you really want that. However, nearly 3MB gif animation is just a no no. Some people are still using dial-up (believe it or not) and some people just don't know how to take care of their new computers, a large gif file like that will lag their computers like no tomorrow.

yeah, i saw it and i thought it was pretty cool. with a bit more compression, you could probably take it down to a nicer size but probably still not enough to be "acceptable" as a forum signature. pinch2.gif

speaking of which, just say i was to post DeeezNuuuts' removed signature in a post somewhere as an image. are there any rules regarding the filesize/resolution of an image added to a post?

Depends on where you are. The only place where you could post that image and it wouldn't be spam would be in the Art section, which has a guideline for filesizes and resolutions right on the top of the forum. wink2.gif

What people tend to forget is that the extra 2MB to load, is not only 2 MB.

People need to stop thinking only for themselves, and need to start looking at the whole picture.

Because someone's extra 2MB in his sig could be everyone's extra 2MB in their sig.

50 posts per page * 2MB = 100MB only for sigs alone.wink2.gif

Relax, I'm not whining about it or arguing against the rules, I just wanted clarification regarding what happened and why.

Then a thread need not have been ressurected, since all the info you needed conveniently replaced your signature in the first place.
