banners/images in your sig...

Postby ashe on Sat Sep 27, 2008 10:21 pm

keep 'em at 25px high max please.

i'll be looking for a mod that will auto re-size any image in your signature over that height, but in the mean time we ask for voluntary compliance please.

I wonder maybe we should set that restriction on the overall height of one's sig., instead of just the banner(s)...
E.g. your sig right now (according to Firebug) is 62 px tall, + 19 px in various margins, etc., to it totals 81 px...

If someone puts up a 90 px tall banner AND has several lines above and below it in the sig, we will see some seriously intrusive-looking posts IMHO.

Just tested it... there seems to be no software restrictions on the overall height (or number of lines) of one's sig... only max characters (255.)

Just a thought anyway.
(OTOH this will probably never happen though, so you guys (the admins) could deal with that on a case-by-case basis, too.)

it's hard to say really. for instance dales sig is currently not too bad, but he's the only one with multiple images plus text in their signature. if everyone started doing it then it might get to be more of a burden in terms of keeping the board looking clean and streamlined / not distract from the content too much.
