View Full Version : Sig Size Restrictions

As the community grows, I think that restricting the size of a user's signature box would be helpful in keeping them from becoming too distracting.

I propose that the graphics in one's signature box should not exceed 500 total pixels in width and 150 total pixels in height.

If a user only uses text in their signature I propose that a total of 5 lines of normal sized text be the limit.

If a user uses both images and text in their signature, I don't know what would be the best solution. Perhaps a 1 line restriction at normal font size for users with graphics of 100-150 pixel heights, a 3 line restriction for users with graphics of 50 - 100 pixel heights, and a 4 line restriction for users with graphics of 50 pixel heights or less.

What do you think?

yea, I don't know the technical lingo like seeso does, but I agree, some of the sigs have become ginormous.

Good call. Even though these forums ooze with friendliness, every large group of random people can profit from a little bit of nudging to keep things running smooth, and a move towards common sense signatures would reduce the RSI in my mouse arm... krrt-krrt-krrt-krrt

Lez is more baby.

When I registered on this forum and saw graphics in signatures were allowed, I turned them off.

Try Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/), I've never used it but have heard good things about it.

whoa, weird picture in your sig slick! I thought there were little bugs on my screen for a sec.


Hmmm...that makes sense seeso, but that means my sig is crossing the line :( lol.

from the looks of it, it's most likely photoshop haha that's spongey looking texture is a template/default or whatever texture on it xP

once you get photoshop or paintshop pro, you can pretty much make hella bomb pictures haha assuming you know how to use it. ><;;
