    Q. Why are there size restrictions on signatures ?
    A. A signature is intended as a short endpiece for your posts, it will appear underneath every post you make on the forum and should be as minimal as possible. Large signatures or lengthy passages of text are unnecessary, destracting and take ages to load for users on dial-up.

    Q. Why has my signature been removed ?
    A. If your signature violates the below signature guidelines then it will be removed. These limits are here to make the forum as easy to browse as possible, massive signaturesdo nothing but hinder other users.

    Q. What are the current signature size limits ?
    A. The maximum allowed signature graphic size is 500x150 pixels :


    The signature graphic should be no larger than 50k in size. To see how large your signature graphic is, right click on it and select 'Properties'. If you're signature is within the 500x150 limit but is larger than 50k then you should convert it into a .jpg in order to reduce its file size. In any case as small a signature as possible is preferred.

    Your signature will be removed if it:

    is larger than the above mentioned size limits
    contains several 'stacked' images that total in size to more than the above mentioned size limits
    contains links to commercial products or services
    is overly distracting - i.e; bright flashing images etc.
    contains images of an unsuitable or adult nature
    contains more than 500 characters of text
    contains more than 5 links.
    text size is bigger than 3
