I never got any problems with sigs as they are alright and not exaggerating to me, so I don't see why there would be a limit like that, so no, I'm not much going to agree over there because I think it's actually not something like "It's multiple pages long and all of that stuff". Basically, I don't have a problem with the current situation at all and I would find that difficult to put a limit for some people around (including me) if I think they aren't much in the mistake. A few people care too much about those "details" I guess.

Some people sigs are big indeed which do need resizing. Snowy did not say pages he said posts. If your sig is ridiculous then you don't need one. A sig being >500 by >750 is not a sig to me. Why use a whole picture as a sig...

I suppose it's also worth mentioning (in case anyone forgot) that you can turn off ALL sigs from displaying if you have no reason to view them. :p
I guess some people really forgot to look in the settings... I guess it's better to do so if they does really disturbing you instead of putting a "rule". (I should have really mentionned that before...)
Only problem is that, while some people may like or enjoy some signatures, there's no way to turn off signatures or avatars for each individual. I don't think there's even a SMF mod to do that, either. So either live with the signatures, file a complaint, or turn them all off.

If your sig is outrageously big, you will be resizing it.

What I was mentionning was my point of view, not the same as Snowy.

Unless they would be cluttering my whole web browser, like, let's say, that I am obliged to put the page down just to pass the sig, I would find it's a problem.

I don't see a problem with them as they seems alright and in the worst browsers, let's say, in a mobile one, as I mentionned above your posts, there's something in the settings where you can check to don't show sigs and it's as easy as that.

At the worst, you can do so. That's what I'm trying to say. (I know I don't have any problems with my sigs and any others, but I'm just saying that I would not bother turning that option on at the worst case.

Something like my sig is more in width than in height. (678 width x 159 in height) But I guess it's less cluttering than having one which instead in height.

I was restating what Snowy said since you quoted indirectly. I simply understood your point of view therefore needing no further explanation.

What would be gigantic? Larger than 600px (w) by 200px (h)?
If it looks too large, it's too large. tbh I have your sig and the one I made for cook blocked through ABP.
Wait what ABP blocks sigs now? :p

In fairness tho I was planning on changing my sig but got lazy and haven't made a replacement. >.> It's actually 288px tall tho which is BIG (given the image is scaled it's actually bigger so >.>)
I right click "block this ad" and add it to my filter.

So you make me this random dinosaur wearing diapers sig and then block it? God dammit snowy :P
it's its belly and yeah I did 3:<
Who sig is huge?

[Contacted 1 person about their sig]

And having huge ass sigs is doing too much
Blue Toad's is always massive,  Hathaway's is big, Maxime's was relatively large and a gif, and maybe it's just the placement of yours but the gif in yours makes it super tall.
If everyone agrees that we can have a size limit for sigs, we can implement that. We just need to all agree on an exact height and width.

Those are diapers? This whole time I thought it was just it's belly. :P
Same. :P
500x200 sounds like a good number.

A sig will never bump to the next page. Pages are determined by the number of posts on it and then after 10/15/20 you go to the next one. I can have 5 images in my sig, all of them being 10,000x1 and I can post 15 times on that page before anything happens to the pages.

I noticed mine was crowded, so I removed most of it. Hope that helps, Snowy.

It's not really what I was saying, just when I have to scroll down through the page to see the sig, like if I would only see this "said" picture through the page I'm browsing. I do indeed know how pages work (I'm a forum veteran) and have no problem with those things. At the worst, just put off the sigs in your settings, that's what I would do instead of doing complaints against others. It would be indeed a better idea instead of having others to absolutely change for your likings, just saying.

Resized my gif to 150 by 150 since it still preserves aliasing and such. I had sent a PM to Hathaway already though.

By nature, sigs are usually 150 by (Hopefully less than 750). Hathaway's sig is really too damn big, have you seen the size? By nature, that not even a sig. No one is changing for anyone's liking, if your sig is just too damn big then we have a problem that needs to me ameliorated. Also, what you just stated is the actions you take when sigs are big, not everyone will agree with your actions (IE. I don't)

Or you know you can just set a limit to how big it can be and make the forum look neater and cleaner.

I never thought yours was big lol

Exactly. Just because you can put it there doesn't mean you should. A signature is exactly what its name is. When you sign something you don't take up an entire page.

Bold part is a little right... Mine is actually below that though, but I guess you're alright with some of those and I understand your point of view and that we don't act similiar, I'm mostly trying to help others even if I don't have problems with this personally as I usually don't put huge sigs anyways. (It was just to help others and to see what I think of, that's it.)


And anyways, as I personally know those sort of forums well, I know it could be restricted by an admin or SuperZambezi with help of some admin stuffs so I guess it's why he's talking about "restricting". This way, no one could put more huge signatures anymore, even those which are actually with those. I just don't get why people would be forced especially that I don't see any problem personally. I'm just trying to actually "discuss" of what could be done to evade the problem instead. Anyways, I'm done now. I guess I know what you want and there's that and the choice can't be mine or yours anyways, but I know I can share my opinion at least, it can help staff's decision.

No one's saying anything because we dislike someone and they just happen to have a huge sig. Justin can have a huge sig and you know I'd be on him about it.

I don't think there needs to be an exact length by width limit on sigs, I think the staff can make a judgement call on who's sig is too big and stuff. But either way is fine as long as sigs like those dumb big sigs blue toad always has are gone.

I can read signals (well sometimes) and when Snowy said on the shoutbox about have huge sigs, somehow I knew he was talking about me so I immediately changed my sig to another. :P

Guys just use the width/height codes to resize. You shouldn't have to scroll through sigs. They're supposed to be small.
