By reasonable size what would be a good size so people know?

And by that I mean width.

I have a small screen so it doesn't take much for the scroll bar to appear at the bottom of my window. :embarrassed:

And you know I really hate that because then it stretches the text so I need to use the scroll bar to read a line of text. It isn't fun. D:

I believe it was 200 high which would include picture and text. There are quite a few signatures that well exceed this. You can resize your picture easily through photobucket. If you cannot please choose another signature or simply not have one. I am not a big fan of only being able to read one or two posts per page because everyone's signatures are too large.

Ok I'm getting tired of the HUGE sig banners. If you're banner is too large I'm going to resize it for you, and it will be smaller than the 200px max. If you want to resize it again yourself and re-host it please do but that's the new policy.

Love y'all :heart:

Thanks Okaa-san! This is very helpful to people who have small browser windows or who frequently access the site from their phones (like me). :smile:

The max height was agreed upon to be 200px. We never really agreed on a max width because everyone's resolution is different, but almost everyone has kept it reasonable, so I'm not enforcing a width unless I get complaints.

I'm sorry, I really didn't know the maximum size of signatures...
Thanks for resizing mine. I'll fix it later.

Hello everyone,
I have installed a mod for the forum that automatically re-sizes any signature exceeding 200px x 500px. For future reference, please make your signature banners no larger than that size -- thanks!

Thanks so much for installing that script! Now it's easy for everyone to see if their sigs are too big, and no more unnecessary scrolling past huge banners ^_^

Oh, and the 200px rule includes pictures AND text. So if you have a 200px high banner with text underneath, the text will be cut off. Likewise, if you have text above a 200px banner, the bottom of the banner will get cut off. To display your text just decrease the size of your banner a bit and they both will be displayed :)

phpBB3 apparently has an option to not allow signature pictures bigger than what I set (200px x 500px) but it doesn't seem to be working. Thus I'll continue to resize your banner for you if it's too big, but please be respectful of your fellow forum members and try to keep the size to a minimum. Thanks! :bow:
