I'm going to step in here, because we are in the middle of solving a big problem. Our Forum Limit for signatures is 150x600 pixels. Alot of people have been missing that as they put up their signatures. 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, although it all hasn't been worked out, 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. Not yet active.

For Regular Members that size will be the Forum "Standard" of 100x500 pixels.

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.

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.
John

Thanks for the good attitude Man. Alot/most have missed that as they register and we have a small staff doing alot of promotion/formatting/keeping all in order. So we have gotten lax and the siggies keep growing. It not something I want to start moderating either. For the moment, it all good. But I figured this would be a good place to mention, its coming. Just a heads up for all that in the coming weeks, the signature pic function is getting tweaked to work within all usergroups, and then we will be making the change and disabling IMG tags.

Same here. I use Photoshop for layering because it can completely remove the background color from an image but I can't even come close to doing the blending and all that.
