But if we're trying to diagnose a problem, a sig is an effective way of checking easy.

I am working on a new one though....

True. And I know that'* why it was requested awhile back that everyone include that info in their sig. But the other 90% of the time that sig info just adds to visual clutter, takes up disk space, and neuters the search function. Okay...I mostly visit the lounge where there isn't much car trouble diagnosis happening so maybe the percentage isn't 90%. But it'* gotta be up there.

Just my 2 cents but putting your car info in your signature is helpfull to the staff and other BC members as a quick reference if your car is stock, and mods you may made incase a problem arises and you are looking for assistance.

Ryan I fixed your sig

Everyone

Another reminder, I will be editing signatures that do not comply to the following

1 image of 500x350 MAX
2 images not exceeding 250x200, see my sig as an example
Mod list not exceeding 8-10 lines of characters.

Any questions, post here or send me a PM. Please don't be alarmed if you sig is revised.

animated gif images are acceptable (limit of 3 please)

This should satisfy the requests and not bog down on dialup users.

Frankly, I like sigs and pics, it makes things a bit more interesting and colorful, we just have to be mindful and responsible with our signatures

Thx

It was not the sigs we are talking about it is the pictures inserted into the sigs that are the problem.

I think that the info in the sig IS very important but some pictures were getting out of hand.

Thats true Mike, but line after line of text gets cumbersome

8-10 lines is a reasonable request

That'* what I run at home most of the time but depends on the kind of work I'm doing. Despite that, and the 132 or so views of this thread, there are still quite a few oversized signatures around. I'd be happy to post a screen shot - but I'll hold off on that.

Cheers,

Foghorn

This thread has exactly what I want to see in sig limitations, most are within respectable limits. I wil not be forcing people to remove their signatures or images, but to respect limits. PMs and modified sigs will follow to meet the minority requests on this item.

I'm sure you are aware of the Windows IE option to not show images on webpages. I suggest using that if you do not want to view images

No worries Jim, didn't want people to have to remove images...only to keep them a reasonable size!

I realize that, my apologies if I came off harsh, its your concerns that will ensure this item gets resolved.
