    Default Change in Signature Permissions

    I have been watching with growing unhappiness the growth of signature size and complexity. Some of the images that have been used distract from thread flow because of their size. Text has become quite long in some cases.

    After talking it over with Brian M, today I changed some of the signature characteristics. Image sizes are now limited to 300 px wide by 200 px tall. Total characters in the signature cannot exceed 300 including BB code.

    This is not pointed at any particular user. In retrospect, I think I should have kept the signature characteristics more frugal to begin with and then gradually increased possibilities as needed.

    I tend to agree

    Default Big images, heavy text

    Actually, there are a number of users with fairly large images in the signature. Yours, hunt_ak, can simply be shrunk. Maximum dimensions are 300 x 200, but anything less than that will work....doesn't have to be exactly that.

    If I had a real problem with your signature, I'd tell you.

    Exclamation What happened to the signature pictures

    I just eliminated picture BB code from signature possibilities. This means that pictures coming from other sources will no longer be usable in the signature block.

    You can, however, upload an image and use it in your signature. Maximum dimensions are 300 on width, 200 height.
