Yes freedom is an option I like. But that would be fine if we could trust people to be a little sensible and not put up siggies that will take up half of other poster's screen.

Re: problem with signature

Cool. It's probably good news that my idea was not implemented. I have absolutely no idea how hard you guys have to work to keep everyone happy, so if you think this way is the best way, then it is the best way.

Good to see some rule changes though. I'm going to try out this size 5

The I-don't-know-if-it's-good-or-bad news is that Mr Dokic's ideas are not going to be implemented. It stays as it is: if your sig is considered too big, you will be asked to change it. If you feel a sig is too big, you can bring it to our attention by using the 'report post' button.
I also want to point out that these rules are final. They are not likely to be changed anytime soon. Please accept that we have to set limits to signatures to keep the board accessable for all our members.
Thank you

Re: problem with signature

I don't understand the people complaining about only having eight lines.

You can put more than one of your favorite players on a line.

So:

That should work. I will look at it for you now.

You can review the sigs before you delete them anyway, and its just common sense to tell if a sig is appropriate or not.
that is way too subjective. How big sigs are depends on your screen resolution as well. Plus what seems too big for me, could be ok for others. There would be non stop complaints if this was implemented.

I think we should poll things like this. I'm going to make a poll to see if users would think the current system is better or if the plan i proposed would be more beneficiary. It's just annoying that our sigs are limited. Theres over 1000 WTA players and we're only given 8 lines to show our support..

However I don't want to sound like a complete whinger and a sook so I'm gonna come clean and say that this site is one of the best I've stumbed upon. Keep it up dudes and dudettes
delete them entirely would only make it worse Now THAT would be unfair and powerhungry.
There are a couple of reasons why we put limits on signatures, the most important being to keep the board browsable for everyone, including people with a slow connection. We think that to be accessible for everyone is more important than a few more lines in your sig.

Smaller sigs might be annoying people, but huge sigs are annoying even more people, we're trying to find the middle way.

Plus, if you think a sig is too big, you can already report it, which is being done sometimes as well, so that thread isn't necessary either.

Yes a banner = 1 line.

It is actually being discussed. We might be going back to size 5, even though it would result in bigger sigs again (so more work for us to ask people to reduce them again).

So, couldn't you just abandon all rules for signatures? No limit to lines, text size or picture size.

I know that this would end up with users having signatures the length of a foot-long, so you could create a thread where people could alert the WTAWORLD officials about people being irresponsible with there signatures. In this case, you could review the users sig, and if it was inappropriate, you could remove the entire sig. This would teach them a lesson, and get them a bit annoyed, and I don't think they'd worry about making it so big anymore. They'd learn from your punishment and from then on they'd go by the rules. The rules being common courtesy for other users.

Tell us what you think anyway, I think that would work, and it would keep the users happy. Plus they couldn't whine and b**** in a thread about there sig not working because if their sig was removed they'll know it was because the made it too big and inconvenient for WTAWORLD users.

just my thoughts...
