... to 250 or something?

200 is like... so small. Seriously, I say that in all genuineness. It's very restrictive, and I don't think an extra 50 pixels would make a huge difference in this age of cable and high speed internet LOL.

Please consider it. Graphics is one of the most popular topics/activities on this board as well...

Cause then in order to give it some substance, you need to stretch it across the whole damn page in width, like yours. :weirdo: Douchebag.
Ouch, having your womanly times?

Ignoring your personal insults, I will say that you can fit the same amount of substance you can fit in a 250px banner, in a 200px banner (if you have enough brains).

And my signature doesnt stretch the page unless you are using a screen smaller than 800px, in which case, you might as well have signature/acatar turned off.

200 Pixel is fine, and my signature doesnt stretch the page unless you have are using an iphone to browse internet , or a screen which is smaller than 800 pixel, in which case, you might as well turn off the avatar/signatures.
I'm on a 1024 x 768 actually, and it stretches the messages.

And there's no menstrual shit going on here, sweetie. It just bothers me when a retarded board troll, a self-proclaimed retard, tries to pass his/her opinion off as legit. I'm sure many people in here agree with your stance, and that's fine. I'd just rather they came in and expressed it, as opposed to you. Really. Go post in some half-witted thread in GM, as you do best.

Why wouldnt my opinion be legit? just because I am a 'troll' (which you said only because I have different opinions than you :shrug:), my opinions counts for as much as yours. (Where did you see me proclaim myself as a retard? It is reetard, with an extra e, if you cannot read)

Being able to use a forum are not a right, its a privilage, so stop whinning.


Anyways, aside from your personal insults, my opinion is that, a 250px banner will make you scroll extra anyways :shrug: Right now you are scrolling sideways, with a 250px banner, you will be scrolling sideways as well as extra scrolling downwards.

Bad idea. 200px is fine.

LOL I'm just being an asshole, forget about it. I may have confused you with someone else, trolls tend to be pretty one-dimensional these days.

Back to thread - that extra scrolling for a handful of extra pixels on a page of images would take a mere second extra. If that. Scrolling up and down is less of a hassle for internet users than side to side. Fact. :ras:

Ok guys, calm down already.

We set the 200 pixels as a reasonable height in the past, because we were getting a lot of complaints from posters about larger banners. We may reconsider it at the moment, right now we do not. It's a question of banner size, font size, all together. We understand everyone wants to have cool graphics in their sigs, but we think it's important to keep the board accesible for everyone.
btw, we have recently set a width limit as well; 800 pixels. Hmm I'm not sure if that got added in the FAQ section. I guess I should check

Why is it that big? :spit:

I'm also very surprised anyone would think that those huge banners look good, but whatever...
Actually I agree with your question on the width. We should maybe check the average pix size of screens to set the limits :shrug:

So am I. I find those banners so annoying and they make the page so difficult to read that I have signatures disabled for a while now...

the smaller the better as far as im concerned. people have avatars to show off themselves or favourites why do they then need to fill a whole sig with them as well?

Can we increase the non-premium avatar size to what it was? They are sooo small now.

I'd imagine the reasoning behind it being small is to encourage posters to buy premium membership to get bigger ones.

Whether or not you think it's worth the money is entirely up to you but you have the choice of paying to have a bigger avatar.


As for more than 200 pixels, it's extremely unlikely to happen anytime soon.

Sorry if that upsets you guys but none of us see much point in misleading you to think otherwise.

phew.

3 words & a few smilies per post followed by massive pics below = arrrrrrgh.

lol @ the idea of asking people to turn off sigs. Just like asking people to not go into threads that don't interest them or ignoring posts/posters they disagree with. Oh if only people would do those things.

Plus, why would u wanna turn off sigs if u have a lovely one yourself that obeys the rules? That wouldn't be fair.

Can something be explained to me please...

Is this limit in place because of the extra up and down scrolling one would have to do with larger images, or because the images would take longer to load? Cause I just had a picture in my signature that was a bit higher than 200 pixels (maybe around 250) that got removed. But if you look at the size of it (in kb), it wasn't anything particularly large. In fact there are people who respect the 200px height rule who's images are LARGER in size than the picture I had (meaning they would still take longer to load despite being smaller), and who's signatures take up more room ANYWAY as a result of having more lines of text added to them. Mine had no extra text. If you think of it logically, these people are in violation a lot more than I am. Not only do their images take longer to load as a result of being larger files, but the scrolling is still an issue as well because of all the excess lines of text. There's just no real gain in enforcing such a strict policy on the 200 pixel height rule, especially if it's not overdone and if it's not a hinderance to the site visitors, which mine really wasn't in any way.

It's just so pointless to have this restrictive a limit... I do agree with there needing to be a limit, I'm not oblivious to the reasons why it's in place. But I don't understand the logic behind 200px.

Is there any way a rule/condition could be added where you're allowed to have a slightly larger image in height, as long as you don't include any extra lines in your signature for other pics/text? Or something to that effect. That doesn't seem unreasonable, does it?
