As you can see it has been this way since then ( few months).

If I remember correctly in the notice,

As a reminder, I ask members to be mindful of our dial up friends.

Please edited your signature images to be no bigger the 250x500 or 500x250 pixels depending on orientation.

Thank you
which my pictures are. So I may suggest that alot of people read it again, including you Will ( your 94px too wide, LOL). Mods and admins are supposed to be setting examples. My pics combined are no bigger than the maximum width and height.

Just a suggestion, to keep everyone happy, or at least try to, hehe.
Hey I cant read your text at all.....

Please make it at least size 9...shink the photo a little or I can do it for you without pixelation. (if thats a word)

sounds good, I think 200pixels (your current sig height with photo) is a good guideline to go by, any larger it gets annoying. it makes it harder to scroller thru replys when people'* signatures are 700pixels deep. width is not really an issue though, 600 will still be fine even if running 800x600

Hans, my current sig pic is only 100px high, not 200.

And at 700 wide, you have to take into account the width of the sidebar and low-res formats. It causes some people to scroll.

There will be an announcement soon. We're firming up the details and getting a couple things in place first.

Myself, I think the limit should be, something like 500x100 for a picture sig. Even at the maximum size of that, with lots of detail, the picture will be at most, a couple hundred kilobytes. People using dial up will still be able to load that one picture in seconds.
As for text, a few lines, even 4 or 5 wouldnt be so bad, as long as the font size isnt huge.
As for storage of all those pictures, lets say 1000 people, with 100KB signatures each, that equals 100MB. For storage, thats nothing.
As for loading times, lets say there are 20 people posting per page, each with a 100KB signature. Thats 2MB, even with 56K that would be a max of a few minutes.

I disagree, i think the sig pic size limit should be MAX of 200x600, The comp at work i use to come here with during the day is 56k and 800x600 and even with Willwrens 94over I still dont have to scroll from side to side to see his sig or the text on the page that he has posted in


IMO the biggest problem has always been the sigs with too much text
