Signature Size Limits

28 posts in this topic
Would it be possible to set rules on how big pics can be in sigs, or how many lines of text they can be? I dont mind some, but there are some sigs that take up nearly half a page on my browser. Other forums I've been to have had sig limits.

Ok, i've been considerign this one myself. Hoping people would self regulate and I wouldn't have to come across as even more of an asshole than many folks think I am already...(it's ok, who says you have to like me? pirate.png )

But i think we are going to have to set some limits soon if people don't do it themselves. A one line post with half a page of Sig. crap is getting out of hand.

I was just about to post this, then saw someone else made it.

I am using a 22inch monitor and some of these sigs cover half my screen. 1 or 2 quotes would be fine but there comes a time when you need to cut some out.

Lets play it like powerball. You can only get 1.

Although I love Riviet's signature... I think we need to limit these.

+1 but 3 is reasonable if they are small


3 may be reasonable, but honestly, you dont need 3 quotes in your sig. Just pick the one that you like the most and call it a day. Its not like people are reading your sig quotes all the time anyway.


JD's sig size is what should be the limit. It takes up almost no space. So I guess that is what, 3 1 line quotes and you are done.

I was thinking something along the lines of setting a max size for pics and how many lines of text Also, if you're using a pic thats at the max size, how many lines of text. the pics dont bother me, unless they are huge.

iamscott, yours is fine by me

I think pics are fine, but as ryno stated ones like the kurt cobain sig are just too big, I would say figure out how big 4 lines worth of quotes is and then take a pic and see what fits in that size, any combo of quotes and pics larger than 4 lines should be changed. By no means am I trying to bash anyone, just my 2 cents.

is that better for mine?
I deleted one and changed font so it appears smaller...it would be solely JD, but the one I just couldn't resist...It remains until he gives me one to replace it with

cut it to 3 and you will be fine. It still takes up a 1/3 of a page.
