I know we all love each others signatures and I encourage everyone to have one but i have been paying more attention to them and asking some to change them or i have changed them as some are getting very big. I do not want to put ALOT of limits on them but some are very large and for people who have lower resolution screens they may even have to scroll left to right to read a post.



SO! please try to follow these guidelines , and for now these are just that, guidelines



1. try to keep sig pics to 600 pixels wide or less (all pics combined)

2. try to keep sig pics to 300 pixels tall or less (all pics combined)

3. try to limit your sig to 3 pics max

4. try to limit your tickers to 2 or less (maybe 3 if you dont have large pics)

5. animated sig pics are ok but please try to reduce them so they load fast

6. try to keep it at 1 animated pic per sig

7. no links to your store unless you are a paid vendor

8. please only use font size 4 or below in additional text



this will help users from having to scroll left to right and will help with load times of the page for those on dial up, also if you dont care about seeing the sigs you can turn them off in your userCP



Please do not get upset if I resize the pic myself, generaly i will try to ask but if its very large I may do it to help other users from having to scroll, also sometimes a user may not sign on in a few days, read my PM or dont use the email address they signed up with



any questions or suggestions, please post them in this thread





thanks everyone,

Joe

Joe,



I'm one to always follow the rules, but I have no idea how to do any of the stuff in your instructions. I'm still amazed that I figured out how to post a pic. If mine is wrong, feel free to fix it.



Thanks,

Nonny

Nonny said exactly what i wanted to. I had a lot of help making my signature, Dr. Jaimie made it and others helped me to post it. I really have no idea what its dimensions are, so if I need to make changes just let me know and I will get my computer literate buddies to help me. Thanks!

Thanks Joe! I have DSL- so I am high speed enough, but at times it's still annoying to have to scroll a half page down just to get past someone's signature to the next post.

Thank you Joe! I have found the signatures getting very large. I would personally be even stricter with the rules.

The only thing I know about pixels is that my camera has mega ones, and someone on this forum has a puppy named Pixel. If I am doing wrong, feel free to make me better.

The ones that are really annoying are when you have to scroll from left to right. I have a 17" monitor, I wonder how annoying it is for those with 15" monitors.
