As stated in the forum rules signature length is limited to 4 lines, we have some members currently who have exceeded this, please edit your avatar signatures to come in compliance with this. Thank You  :smile:

I've noticed that there are several members who have increased the size of their signature. For everyone, the limit is 4 lines of text. Now, that means 4 lines one after another like this.

Code: [Select]
This is the first line.
This is the second line.
This is the third line.
This is the fourth line

Spaces between text count as a line.

For those with an image, as long as that image is APROXIMATELY 4 lines of text in height that is fine. Mixing text and images is also fine as long as the result is still 4 lines of text in height.

This rule is in effect to keep the size of signatures to a managable level. If the signatures get too big then they will take up more of the screen than the actual posts which would make it very confusing to read threads.

Thanks, and happy posting!

Once again, this thread is being bumped. Browsing the boards today I saw numerous members whose signatures exceed the limits. Remember the limit is approximately 4 lines of text (2cm).


[span style=\'color:red\']One Line
Two Lines
Three Lines
Four Lines[/span]


In most cases we'll allow a 2 line buffer (so 6 lines). HOWEVER, this in no way means we'll blandly accept people increasing their signatures to 6 lines. If you have text, keep it as 4 lines ONLY. If you have an image, we're likely to be a little more lenient, BUT if your image looks like it's already 4 lines, DO NOT include text as well.

If members don't take that necessary steps to ensure their signatures are within the set limits, I will be issuing warnings.

I would like to add that any members who's signature doesn't comply with the rules will have their signature edited to fit the 4 lines rule as well as recieve a warning. If you don't want your signature to be edited, then you'd best edit it yourself, because what we'll change it to won't be nearly as fun.

Example:

[span style=\'color:red\']Edited for breaking signature size rule.[/span]

It's been 3 days and still I haven't seen any members make an effort to re-size there signatures. I'll be editing and issuing warnings as of now.

Some member signatures seem to be increasing in size again. We (the staff) have discussed the matter, and it's been decided that 100 pixels is the maximum height for all picture signatures (and of course, if you have an image that's 100 pixels high, you're allowed NO text). Any signature found exceeding 100 pixels in height will be edited as per Shifty's rule above.

Of course, this only applies to picture sigs. All text sigs are not to exceed 4 lines as per the original rules.
