    I mean really, have you seen some of them? Take up more space than a post. (yes I realise mine does take up more space than some of my posts however its the limit on another forum).

    I mean make it so it only can be x pixels high by x pixels wide and a filesize limit. You have to think of those on Dial-Up.

    A signature is meant to be a small statement about yourself, not a bunch of meaningless pictures.

    For example, amy signature I use has pretty much got something to do with gaming, so its a small statement about myself.

    Yeah, and then people wouldn't be able to have sigs that take up a whole page..

    See also Firrefly's poll

    What's the point with sigs anyway? I use my avatar so I can quickly scroll through and see where the latest thread is "Oh there's a pic of a rat so the next one must be newer than mine." Big sigs merely make it so that I have to wait longer for the page to load.
    It isn't what you do with it -- it's the size that counts?​

    I agree, all people need to do is use a free picture-editing program such as GIMP, and resize the picture easily.

    Oh but why should they go through the extensive time required to do such an operation when they can be annoying jerks instead... I mean everyone must have cable in this modern era, so what does a page sized sig matter worth a damn, i mean, make the page distorted by your massive 1440x900 pixel sig. ohh i have that set as my background, it makes perfect sense to use it as a siggy... and for those with your fucking cannon pick or whatever the fuck it is, long is just as damn annoying. it still makes my index finger move like a bitch in heat so get rid of those damn huge sigs...


    I am oh so sorry for the rant but this is one of my major pet peeves, mods please fuck with my post till it matches your liking. this is just my voiced opinion on the subject.

    I still have slow internet! I know! I don't mind sigs, If I have one, I like to keep it small though. I don't wait for them to load I just skip to the text!

    There are some people with stupidly big signatures in the forums, seriously they take up like two or three posts with just their sigs. I know my sig at the moment, FFVII, is a bit bigger than most sigs but it's nothing compared to some, they really do need to be limited.

    Hell, if anything, yours is fairly decent when it comes to filesize.

    Just under 36KB, and I'm saying that 40KB is a pretty good filesize max. But what annoys me more is these extremely detailed ones which take over 100KB, causes longer loading times, and since they are usually huge, cause the page to go away from what I'm reading when they load, which means I have to scroll down and find where I was.

    Yeah, I hate those huge sigs. It's sometimes 5 big photos, bunny (this is bunny. cpoy/paste...) and a text like "copy/paste this sig in 5 days or a giant whale will smack you in desert"
    On my clan's forum we just have a limit of 300 words, and I think that's enough
    (look at my cool sig)

    I agree, your sig limit should only be; 600pixels in width, and 450pixels in height.

    Nothing more.

    600x450.
