    New Signature Limits

    Up until now, the only limitation on forums signatures has been a set number of characters, however, recently there have been a lot more signatures which have used oversized text or lots of line breaks to take up a lot of space. This situation now requires a new rule on signatures be implimented:

    signatures will be limited to 5 lines total including spaces, and no signature may use an overly-large font size.

    Different fonts have different sizes, but the general rule of thumb is that size 4 is the top limit.

    Any signature breaking the rule may be deleted without warning.

    How large is overly-large ?

    Is size 3 too much ? (for reference, I'm using size 3 right now)

    thanks.

    I always thought it was "I WENT to the danger zone." Caesar, but then I never really listened to too much Kenny Loggins.

    Slick, you were the first person I thought of when I read this new edict.

    There are others, too , not so much on the size thing but sheer VOLUME of junk but I shan't mention names.

    Caesar, your sig is fine, I've talked to Steve and he wants me to set a specific max size, but I pointed out to him that different fonts have different relative sizes. In any case, I edited the announcement and rule to include clarification on that point.


    Slicker, your current sig wasn't the fulcrum that caused this. It was a 5 before, but recently you had edited it to a 4 which is what it is now, and that's the maximum size. BTW, I edited it when this came down because of a spacing issue underneath, it had a bunch of extra codes like size 5 blank spaces and extra colors and fonts, so I cut them out.


    bobafrett, the 5 lines rule includes spaces, as your sig was until I just edited it yours was 7 lines. I guess I'll add that to the announcement as well.

    Thanks JT! Would rather have it corrected than deleted, it took me a long time to think up some of those gems!

    BTW, I didn't know the spaces counted as lines, so thanks for the clarafication!

    Re: New Signature Limits

    Mine ok? I think it's like one line over 5...I may remove that Pilot Droid joke though, it wasn't real funny to begin with.

    Edit: Nevermind, went ahead and removed it. It was time to put it out of it's misery for sure. *nod*
