Signature Pics/Avatars NEW FORMAT!
Our Forum Limit for signatures is 150x600 pixels. And avatars has gone basically unlimited other than what will fit. This has turned the Forum into an art museum of sorts. It has caused a big problem with reply sizes, server load, and page size vs replies in page, and for some timeouts as slower internet connections try to download it all. So, a few things will be happening shortly. Cant be helped, something has to be done. So, expect the following shortly to consider while posting/making new signature pics.
IMG tagging is going to be turned off in the signature field. Because we can't Moderate Signature sizes which have become frankly, bordering the ridiculous. I'm the Senior Administrator and adhere to the Rules.
Signature pictures will have to posted using the Forums Signature Pic option.
For Regular Members that size will be the General Internet Forum "Standard" of 100x500 pixels.
You will still be allowed 5 lines of text for mods, details, etc
Because Subscribers foot the bills of hosting, advertising the site, and software upgrades they will be allowed to keep the original max allowed of 150x600. I dont think it fair to change the benefits stated when they subscribed.
We try to do whats best for the Forum as a whole, keep costs down, and best functionality. People who know me, know that I try my best to make all happy and this place as friendly and enjoyable as I can. I just can let this issue go further. Sorry.
