FYI it is pretty much anyone needs to know about me. *stoner voice* I am expressing myself through the use of images.

I don't really care one way or another about them. It doesn't bother me at all.

They are a little distracting, but nothing more distracting than my avatar.

It was 11. Depends on screen resolution settings.

Never thought about resolution settings before. Mines always 1280x1024 or higher. Just tried it on 1024x768 and apparantly, due to 1 word, it takes up 11 lines. Removed the word. Fixed.

Maybe they should specify a generic resolution that your sig must comply by the rules in. Otherwise you can just keep cranking the resolution up for a longer sig.

Its just personal preference, and I just don't like those little bars. I'm sure there are people that don't like my "plain" sig look, and good for them.

Yours just looks bigger than copliance Vital because of the white background blends with your name and moderator stars........and it is annoying....LOL
I keep looking down every I see it and expect someone to "flick" my nose while I'm looking down. Kinda like this...... but the other way
