This is all I seem to be talking about in this topic, but I was wondering if I could request a change in the maximum size of a signature. I seem to be unable to put any of my desired signature images up, and when resized, these images don't look right. As a result, I'm now using userbars which although cool, aren't the most creative thing on the web. I'm not asking for a full half page signature limit, but something like 500 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall seems to be okay when I test it on Paint. I don't want to seem pedantic and almost ungrateful, but I just wanted to suggest it. smilesmall.gif

Thanks,
Bane

300x100 pixels is the universal standard for sig images. So I could possibly consider upping the height from 60 to 100.... BUT (and this is a big one) signatures in this forum already tend to be waaaaay over sized, with text.

I don't want to block people's creativity but there has to be a line drawn somewhere. That's why sig images are limited to 590x60.

The banners being limited in height compensates a little bit for those people who

use a lot

of text

o?°`°?o in many rows o?°`°?o

in their signatures.

I know what you mean, but maybe there could be a universal limit for text and images. This way you can enforce on people that like to have large text in their signatures.

Try using a URL to an image, and double check it's within size limits.

Just chasing up my request, is there any chances that this could be done please? I know it's slightly nagging and I could manage without it upping, but I've grown complacent with larger images (not much larger mind you) in my signatures.

I save the picture to the (photo bucket) than copy the link into the space provided for direct links for avatars. Same with signatures I try to keep the signature small as possible and within the requirements of the forums.

I think where lucky here I mean I’ve been on some sites no names mentioned where the avatar is 50 x 50 and you really need a magnifying glass to see it. smilehuge.gif

OMG, 50 by 50! thinking.gif

Jesus Christ! shockedbig.gif

That is a Tiny Winy Avi size! eyeball.gif

I will probably flood the Site Ownerz PM Inbox will spams telling him/her to increase the size! paranoid.gif

Then i will probably get banned from that site for spamming, who cares! confused.gif

I like everything to be big e.g. like mah brain! tounge.gif winkgrin.gif toungewink.gif

I wish brains comes in bigger size e.g. Extra Large! blush.gif smilehuge.gif wink.gif

Yeah our Mcdonalds has those... in the burgers! Surprised yours doesn't, I thought they had them in all th Mcydees eyeball.gif .

I think this subject should be taken to a poll! I don't exactly know how big those are since I'm not breakin out paint and I haven't messed with sigs really but I do think there should be a limit on writing space. I know freedom of speech and say whatever you want but is entire dialogue neccisary? A couple quetes, good, a pic, good, a pic having a short word, phrase or NAME is awsome but having an entire dialogue written in the "sig" space I think is not cool. They could write it in their avatar, there's enough room but sigs are meant for art and a sig or saying. I am aware that non of this is even popular vote and it's all my oppinion which should be rejected if disliked so don't be a playa hata. Or a ninja turtle.
