Concerning Signature Pictures

Postby TakagiNaoSama » Sun Sep 30, 2007 9:29 pm

Hi all! I would like to address the increasingly large size of pictures being put in signatures. I want everyone to be free to express themselves, but anything with a height over 200px is a little excessive. Add text above and below and it gets to be way too much to scroll through, especially if you post a lot in one thread.

I'm not going to make a requirement, but I'd like to ask everyone to keep their sigs reasonable. If you need help making a banner feel free to post here and ask. I'm sure someone will be happy to help you :)

Thanks guys ^_^

I've noticed some signature banners have gotten a little big lately, so I'd like to remind everyone that it's appreciated if you keep them as small as possible. I'd say anything over 200px in height is a little excessive. Please refer to the opening post in this thread. Thank you!

I have no idea about how big my signature is, but I am not sure if I'll get to keep my beloved .gif with that rule, and I can't resize that one ;____; Can I keep it, pretty please? It's really not huge anyways :cry:

It should be fine DeepSubmerge, neither of the images are 200 pixels in height.
Which means you should be able to keep the wonderful RukaxMichiru gif. :grin:

Harsh-chan is right. All you have to do to find out is right click it and go to properties and it shall tell you the height like 100 x 100.

But both of them are 160 in height so they are fine. I think mine is exactly 200. :grin:

EDIT:

Actually mine is 231 but I will get around to making it small ASAP. :grin:

mine's 570x250. yeah its a bit big but i guess it gets stuck in your head after being drilled into it. lol i belong to a forum where the siggs have to be with in or exactly that or it streaches the forum. i can always srink my siggs down by 50 if i need be. well for here anyway. i've been meaning to change it. will do later.

If your image is hosted on photobucket it's really easy, I'm pretty sure you can resize it right on that site now. And no need to change your banners just resize :) And don't worry it's not like I'm going to ban you or get mad or anything if you don't change it I just think it's common courtesy to keep them on the smaller side, especially if you post a lot :)

Thank you everyone! :heart:

Thank you for bringing this back to everyone's attention. <3 Even with my uber resolution some sig images were on the annoying large size. It was almost getting to the point of a 3ft long LJ post with no cut. ^^;

Hey guys, while it's wonderful to see such a variety of interests on Antics, some signature banners are getting to be too much. It's taking a long time to load on some threads because of all these bigger banners. I don't want everyone to loose their individuality, but can we trim some of the fat, please? Okaa-san said two hundred pixels, and it's a pretty good guideline. :moon:
