I think it's time the Intrepids considered placing restrictions on poster's signatures. Recently there has been a growing trend of large, or several, images. This only serves as an annoyance when reading a thread.

It is my firm belief that a sig should not be longer than the average post.

I have to agree with TM tho if memory serves the methods for restricting a sig are a bit limited so i would request that we all try and keep our sigs to a resnable size somthing like the bammers catz created or along those line

Cheers

Well, TM does suggest that a sig bigger than your post is not great... take a look at yours again :D

Tho to be fair mine takes up a fair bit of space, but at least it's just plain text

Yes it only has to be 80x80 pixels if you upload it to the forum. If however you go onto say www.imageshack.us and host it from there you can use the URL they give you and have a bigger display picture like mine :)

Good thing we can keep those on :) Took me some time to make them, but anyway I suppose its an idea to cute signatures down a tad.

The 'trick' we use for the avatars to get bigger filesize or whatever, is it OK? I'll happily remove mine if it's doing what the sigs were. But Veronica Mars ftw. ^^

Not an "official" reply, but since I started this topic I'll just say that I don't think any posters are currently violating any "unspoken rules" for avatars and sig's.

Excepting the possible copyright infringement from Infy's clip of Equilibrium in his sig :wink:
