Signature limits: All members must read!
« on: July 22, 2008, 02:40:45 AM »
So Faline, Ingie, LazyBlazy, ohwowitsnicka, and I (AKA the staff :-P) have been talking and it appears some size limits are necessary for signatures.

This applies to all members! Your signatures must be changed to fit these guidelines by Monday, July 28!

General limits are 500 pixels wide, 250 pixels in length*. You may have one banner of that size or smaller, or two small banners which do not exceed those lengths TOTAL (together).

And you may have text if it's small and not obnoxious.

These rules are very common on most forums. It's to help loading faster for other members with different speeds, and so you don't have to scroll through so much to read.

If you don't change yours by July 28th, our eyes will be out.  ;) The staff has the right to alter your signature, but we will ask you politely to change it first of course. And that's what's up.

July 28!

*To figure out your size, right click the image and click on properties.

Thank you lovelies!

If you host your signature artwork in photobucket, it's quite simple to change the size through editing there. If you are confused and would like some help, I'd be happy to assist. :)

well how did you get it?
when the person made it for you, they just sent you the picture?
it must have been the code in image bracket things

go to that forum and try to quote the message the sig was in
when you quote it, the sig should show up as a code with someting like [img] or whatever around it
copy-paste the whole thing, including the bracketed things around it, and paste it in your sig
that should work

The easiest way is to right click, properties. That will show the URL and all other info about it.

I've been trying to put the signature in but I'm not sure what to put for where I got it. Can it be png at the end of the image?
