Exclamation Forum Signatures and You Resurrected!

Good day to you, fellow forum members
This is mostly the same as last time, but with a few additions at the bottom.

I'm here today to remind you all of a rule that we've been kinda relaxed about lately. Your signature size! They're basically an extension of your avatar and can express just that little bit more. Yay! I'm sure this isn't the first forum you've ever been to. So, in your travels around the internet, you should have come across a forum or two where the rules about the signature were very lax, to almost non-existent. In viewing one of these threads you end up downloading not only the actual content (gallery/video) but signature images that are bigger than a thumbnail and sometimes repeated. These massive signatures tend to dwarf responses, an example;


Damn she's hot! The third pic is . Thanks for the post!
_____________________


That's a prime example of what we don't want to end up with. Several posts in one page with massive signatures.
This is a better size;


Massive signatures are a problem if you're posting multiple times within the one page. Remember, everyone has to look at your signature over and over every time you post.

So, in the interest of a happy and harmonious forum, we ask you to keep your signature image within the size requirements. The newer and slightly bigger requirement is now 550 pixels Wide and 120 pixels High and 70kb. If you only have text in your signature, please do not exceed 6 lines.
If you want a banner and text above/under, the banner should be about 18-20 pixels shorter.
If you want to use big text, it should still not exceed the guide image below. Just line it up against what you've got and adjust.

So, stand-alone banner, banner and text or big text, it should not exceed these dimensions:


After a day or two if we find that your signature is still exceeding the limit you will receive a private message asking you to change it.

Finally, i know these types of people won't even bother to look here or bother to find out, but it may as well be said. Do not include affiliate links in your signature. We know what they look like, they will be deleted. We aren't here to up your hit count or earn you 1 cent per click. We also frown upon people advertising their business.

So how do you all want us to report sigs that are too big? I have seen about 10 tonight and some aren't just borderline, they're like half the page!

just hit the report button next to one of their posts, we'll know if there's nothing wrong with the post to look at the sig.

There seems to be a little confusion. Just for a little clarification:

If a signature has text and images, is 120px x 550px the limit for everyything combined, or just the image?

If the signature is just text, do the six lines have the same height restriction of 120 px?

(Keep in mind I am quite content with my 120px x 550px signature. I am only asking for the benifit of others.)

120px x 550px is the limit for everything.

If you want a banner and text above/under, the banner should be about 18-20 pixels shorter.
If you want to use big text, it should still not exceed the guide image below. Just line it up against what you've got and adjust.

Edit: *cough* cobaltdragon has exceeded the limit.

I have a question. Is there any way you can make it so someone doesn't submit anything over the allowable size? I'm guessing not and I'm sure you'd have done it already but I thought I'd throw it out there. You'd probably have to rewrite the forum software to do it huh?

Since the sigs use forum code rather than uploaded images (the way avatars do)... no, there is no simple way to restrict the size. Re-writing the forum software probably isn't even an option.
