Due to ever increasing issues with the Signature File Area and after much discussion & consideration, Admin and the Mods have decided to add the following Wiziwig forum rule:
9. The total Signature Area can be no larger than 800px X 250px in size. This includes all images, banners & text/links combined.
(The ideal banner size is 500px X 200px & the smaller userbars are preferred.) The total combined filesize for all images is 250 KB.
Image files well over 1MB in size were causing major disruptions in page loading, especially in busy daily threads, so this new rule will benefit all of us. The total signature area has also gone well beyond it's intended size. Help us continue making this the worlds best sports forum by taking a few moments to edit your signature files as necessary. Please add up the total KB of all images in your signature file & make sure they do not exceed the 250KB limit in total. Next, measure the box below on your monitor & make sure your entire signature area fits inside of it. By the way, do not change your resolution to 800x600, measure the box, then change it back to like 1280x1024 to see if it fits ... we WILL know if you cheated.
Thanks in advance from Admin & the Wiziwig mod team for your cooperation.
