Is it just me or have the sig sizes gotten a little out of hand?
YES They HAVE it's crazy to have to scroll so far down past a stupid sig just to read a message :-? ! I am so glad someone brought this up.
Well, there goes my idea of putting a life-sized sig pic of my, um, man-shaft. The size of that would piss everybody off.
And then you woke up ( I hope it was a very nice dream but it's back to reality now for you young man)
What? And get rid of your lovely Fallout sig? Never.
Hey FU DU :asshole:
In case you are interested, DU, I made you a signature at that signature place. Check it out.
I don't know why they don't block sigs that are overly sized.
It's possible. It's probably easier to get a moderator to do it manually than to hack a sig restriction thingie into the forum software, though.
Back at Vault 13 one guy got banned for a too big sig pic. Lovely times of terror. But then his sig was 800x600.
So as long as it does not go over the forum's table its okay.
Yes, but the forums table size depends on your resolution. I'm using 320 x 200 myself because I'm almost blind and like super large font. As such, any signature picture over 3 pixels wide is just too big for me. So please, be considerate of others.
is my sig working?
btw how about file size?
is there any limitation on it?
What does your sig say? I don't think there is a limitation when it concerns to file sizes. Well, yeah. You have the ability to limit it yourself so as not to get ban and stuff. Like, I don't think it would be appropriate to put a 1MB image as a sig. Same thing goes for the dimensions. Punta ka na lang sa FAQ para sigurado.
As for the KB sig size I'd say it shouldn't be larger than some 30KB at most. And most sigs in jpeg can be reduced to below 20KB easily. But there are no official rules set so far at least - there was no need.
In case anyone's interested, Hel Khat has the biggest sig here (60+ kb).
I don't think mine is much more than 10kb. I try to always keep sigs below 20kb, and preferable avatars even lower. I had a 56k connection some time ago (even 28k way back), and pictures were a bitch to load. Not everyone rides the broadband, so be nice, reduce your sig size. HA! That rhymed!
I mad Hel Khat's... And it is so big because it looks cool when that shadow blinks. Also, the colored text looks cool.
