If your signature size is greater than an area covered by 1000 x 200 (width x height), it is too big. I am getting a bit tired of adjusting the sigs of folks. I will start editing them by removing them. If you log on and your sig is gone, it is because it exceeded the reccommending size. You want a picture, fine then post a pic. You want two..? Make sure they are shrunken enough to fit in the size indicated. You want three..forgetaboutit. Go with two.

A simple way to test your signature size is to right click and select properties. It will give you a size of the "file" you have as a sig. If you have two, add them together and then that is what you have to work with.

For example:

The Enforcer sig is 450 x 125, the Serverspy sig is 525 x 80. Adding them together I get 975 x 205. Yes, I am over by five, but, I am The Enforcer, and so, I give myself a break. If it gets under control, I will give you five pixels too..

My sig is 1000 X 140 (which I realize is big) plus the text...is it ok or would you rather I shrink it down more?

When you sig is larger than your post - you should think twice before posting. Big is not always beautiful.

I am so tired of hunting for (intelligent?!) text inbetween flashing animations of dead animals and other moving objects covering half my screen. :whippingsmiley:

Look at your sig and ask yourself what you are communicating.

Hi, knocking a couple of "0"s off might be better, making it 100x40 :)
they are still way to big :(

Vettedude, thats why you make a flash sig, so that you can fit in all sorts of pictures!

Ah, but 1 pic sigs are classic. I think they look better too. I only have 2 .gif sigs, the rest are pics.

Oi, if TKO and McGahee are gonna be in the same sig, they're not sharing it with anyone else lol Even if that happens to be Harley Earl and the split window C2! Besides, ImageReady and Flash are too much of a pain.
