Extended character length in signatures

Post by xaphania on October 28th 2006, 12:31 am

Hi Smile

This is a suggestion I've wanted to ask for a while now, but this is the first opportunity for doing so.

I think that it would be beneficial to extend the number of characters allowed in signatures. The current length of 250 characters is very restrictive.

Say for example you wanted to include one image which is also a link, plus a static image, plus two or three other links (as I am wont to do on other boards), this is just not possible with the current editboard signature settings.

That's my suggestion, I hope it's taken into consideration. Thanks for reading.

Yeah, I also agree it could be usefull.
Although people might tend to abuse of the number of characters so mayby also an option to choose btween the max or 250 (like with the max avatar size)

But it's up to the admin of the forum to give rules on sizes of signatures. You can still have a massive signature with the amount of characters we have at the moment.

I still go by what I said before - extended character length in signatures would be very, very useful Smile

> NorthamptonUser : It's up to you to define the size limits for sig images in the rules (ex : 150*600 for 50 KB), and which formats allowed (ex : allowing Flash sigs or not).

The image size and the number of characters are two things which are completely differents.
