Default Signature Text and Picture Limits

As mentioned in several places in our Forum, there are Forum Limits to Signature text and picture sizes. They are as follows:

Signature Pic Limits
Regular Members
500x100

Level 1 Supporters
600x150

Level 2 Supporters
600x150

Level 3 Supporters
600x200

Signature Text Limits

Regular Members 250 Characters

Level 1 Supporters 300 Characters

Level 2 Supporters 450 Characters

Level3 Supporters 600 Characters

As I look through the threads there are some Signature Pics that have grown to sizes, that are causing number of post per page problems and give our Car Forum the look of an Art forum. We grew lax about enforcing the limits and some have gotten out of hand. Please refer to you membership limits and adjust yous to conform please. I am going to allow a 1 week grace period after which time we will remove any that don't. Any person who repeats it will have their Sig permissions turned off. Almost all our Staff can assist you in sizing if you need it.

Just hours away from SIGGYGate, which is today April 15th...some will also refer to this as tax day!

We currently have mods, being held back by chains in our dungeon, just drooling at the opportunity to identify offenders and take action. They have no mercy and are powerless to be convinced to take pity.....you've just now received your final warning.

I'm reposting Venom'* notice that started this thread, cause some of you have problems scrolling through threads and run to the new posts only..so, here'* a new post, with old stuff!

Forum Software Police-ing Sig Pics has been turned on. If your sig has dissapeared, it was oversized.

So any word on when the sig uploader will start working? Mine has been in there for the longest time but has yet to display properly. Had to jerry rig it.

I do not believe we have any intention of enabling the signature uploader. You can continue to use the IMG function and a picture hosted somewhere else.

Hoping to work out the Permissions bugs in a Forum with many ranks and levels. I wont say never but itz an uphill battle and why so many forums rely on IMG tagging.
