Don't know if there's already something like this, but there should. It's no cool at all to get the board all f'cked up because someone likes to have a super-wide signature. Not to talk about infinite Stat/Race Signatures with no point at all. If you REALLY need them so much, just put them on your blog or on the Race thread that Dflame made.

About the limits: I think 750x400 or something along those numbers for all your signatures + text would do. That means that if you have 2 signatures of 400x200 pixels, you'll get a warning signture (just some pre-made thing that says "Max Limit exceeded, please resize your signature(s)")

Don't know about a KB limit, though we shouldn't put infinite .GIFs that end being annoying and make your page take minutes to load (it's not my case though).

Not directed at anyone in particular, I just think a limit line needs to be made before we suffer the consecuences.

I support sort of support this, however:


You can just do what Techy and Star did - Add a scroll bar, or add a Marquee. Simple. biggrin.gif

I think there should be a limit, but like this:

-If your sig is bigger than 500x300, you have to use a Overflow/Marquee

Yeah, huge images in signatures are really annoying.

+0,5

I agree with a size limit for siggies pictures, but having them on a marquee only sorts the look of the skin.
Now, try putting a 1280x1024 screen on your signature, and post on every thread you see... That's gonna get someone mad...

I say:
Maximum width: 500
Maximum height: 250 or 300
Maximum total signature filesize: 500KB

This way we get a fast loading forum and clean skin.

personally i dont care about the size of the signatures because my monitor is really big, but the ones that seem to go on forever do get a bit annoying... just limit them to like, 5 med size sigs and it will be fine

Well golden, since (AFAIK - Ijust skimmed through the options) I don't think IF offers a way to limit signatures neither on filesize nor dimensions (only on number of characters), we can only ask people not to put humongous signatures and keep monitoring their sigs.

What Techy said makes sense. Have a 500x250 or 500x300 maximum dimensions for a non-marquee or non-scrollbox signature, and maximum of 500 width for a scrollbox/marquee sig, as well the 512kB maximum filesize.

Ok. I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what that meant. Could you look at the sigs and give me the list of those with oversized ones and I'll send them a PM asking them to change it? wink.gif
