Restriction on signatures

Post by Brandon on February 5th 2008, 4:43 am

As opposed to just allow/disallow sigs, I think there should be a file restriction on sigs as to avoid people having a huge picture in their sig and scroll bombing the page.

(Please add a poll)

And I agree. I think sigs are great as long as ther w/in a certain size limit. Other wise people go overboard and put HUGE pictures in their sig. Not only is this annoying becuse you have to scroll down large sections of space just to reach thenext page, but it also disrupts the flow of the thread. it would be like this in effect:

*“Victory lies in exhausting [trust], making rewards clear, selecting the troops…..”(pg 102 Military methods)

*someones sig







































































*

"Now rewards are the means by which to give happiness to the masses and cause a soldier to forget death. Punishments are the means by which to rectify the chaotic and cause people to fear their superiors. They can be employed to facilitate victory but are not urgent matters.” (pg90 Military Methods)


So I think sig size restrictions would be FABULOUS!^_^

Ok, I added a poll

If there is a file size limitation on avatars, why not have a limitation on sigs too

This won't do much. You can have a huge picture which has a smaller size than a little GIF. Also, if people saved a picture in BMP, they wouldn't be able to use it if the size was too low. And if the size is big enough, then they could use quite a few JPEGS. You may have to include something about the file types that are allowed in your suggestion.

Surely it should be possible to have these options for both Signatures and Avatars -

Either to set a file size and/or a size in pixels, if required

Or to leave some or all of these parameters unrestricted, ie blank

This isn't rocket science - and that way everyone could choose what suits their own forum.

Voted yes because huge file size = unnecessary bandwidth usage and lag!!!
So typable limit option should be allowed.

And scroll bombing signatures...
Yes we should have the option of a limit in image DIMENSIONS.
(Not the same as file size).
Height and width in consideration.
