There's been a bit of hubbub about the size of signatures here in the forum.
After a lot of discussion between Admins and Moderators, the following restrictions need to be put on signatures.
- Signatures may be no larger than 700px wide by 300px high.
- The total number of graphics in a signature may not exceed 300kb.
The primary reason for this was someone who had an overly large graphic in a sig (I had to scroll down four times to see the whole thing... and my resolution is 1280x854). Also, we have received a number of complains from people on slow connections. Overly large graphics and animated GIFs can take a lot of bandwidth. And speaking as one of those with a slow connection, it takes a long while to load up a page with that.
Moderators will give a friendly warning if a signature exceeds these restrictions. I know that everyone will understand and help us out by reducing down the size of their sigs.
