sig pic size
 
sorry if this has been posted before...

is there a maximum size (in Ks) to a sig pic or does the [IMG] tag for your sig works the same way as the ones anywhere else in the forum?

thanks

50k and 500 by 80 pixels are the max allowed.

matt-- 04-15-2003 11:58 PM

There's a 50k limit?

swphreak 04-16-2003 12:02 AM

oh I guess not.. you're the admin. I must be getting echobase and LF mixed up. I think echbase has the 50k limit.

coupes. 04-16-2003 12:17 AM

so if i host the pis it can be any size? exellent!

thank you!

Well, I dunno, I had an 80k pic once, Rhett didnt want me to have it. :)

Boba Rhett 04-16-2003 12:25 AM

80kb? As I remember it was 870kb. :confused:

coupes. 04-16-2003 01:00 AM

how about 200k for example, would that be possible?

Metallus 04-16-2003 01:44 AM

Highly discouraged. Think of the 28k/56k'ers!




spoiler:
(I have sigs turned off in my profile. It's the greatest.)

try to spam somewhere else kiddos, this is the help/feedback centre (no offence tho);)


and as for that sig size, dont make it too big. we dont want it to be a pain in the ass for 56k users to browse LF, now would we? ;)

Padanime has it right. This is not a discussion forum, except where allowed in clearly stated threads (posted by admin-types). Replies that are not a suggestion to fix a problem, or are not related to the problem at hand just don't belong, and are generally annoying. Likewise, try to avoid "jumping on the bandwagon" of a feedback post unless you genuinely have something to add to the argument, or posting in disagreement without at least some support to your post. Posts like "Yeah that's great!" and "No, that's crap!" really aren't helpful or substantial in the long run. In other words, don't make us have to go on spam patrol and create a need to lock help/feedback topics; we're not babysitters.

As far as sig pics go, I don't think users should have to feel compelled to turn off all signatures just to avoid spots of awful load times or eyesore. It creates a bad image for the forums if people use bulky images which causes threads to break or load more slowly for others, and can be a real turn-off for people who just discover the place. If people go too nuts with filesize, we'll have to consider disabling some people's signatures, or possibly removing the option to post sig images entirely.

One alternative that I highly recommend for people who insist on going to the maximum with sig images is to consider only using your sig some of the time, say, once per thread. There is an option to toggle your signature above the "submit" button on both the new thread/new reply forums.

well that's ok i was really just asking to know if there was a limit and i do not intend to use a 200k plus sig, not even a 80k one, but if it would happen it would only be for a short period of time...
and probably once per page. thanks.

i have to agree with Metallus on everything in that post, and i have to add once you get a sig pic its kinda dull thats why im not using mined anymore... as for the size limit i dont think you shouldnt even use Gif Sigs, its pointless! a Signature i supposed to be your sign....not an image you all of a sudden feel like using but its too big for your avatar.
