On the other side of the spectrum, I have to scroll vertically just to see all of crazydriver'* signature (not trying to pick on you crazydriver, just happens that your sig is in this thread, and makes a easy to see example)

Maybe we need to put some sort of "height" restriction on sigs in general?

There'* at least a couple forums I frequent that have sig size restrictions--typically they ask that if you have 28 bajillion mods, make a banner-sized pic that links to your own webspace or something like that, or maybe say that it can be more than xx number of "lines" tall

Just my 2 cents worth

What resolution are you running on? You shoul be at least 1280X1024 with a 19". I run 1600X1200 and the pics are tiny for me.

i think it should be file data size and pixel size... i don't want to see HUGE pics of people'* engine bays.... other auto forums i play in have rules setup, my sig seems to comply to all of them

Unfortunately, I don't like the way my screen looks at that resolution, so I run 1024x768--to me, it'* a little easier on the eyes
