    Default Signature request

    I know many do not read this forum, but I have noticed a growing trend of user signatures growing larger and larger.

    I understand I can turn signatures off, but I do not mind some signatures, and truthfully, some even make me laugh. However, when a signature takes of a quarter of the page, that just seems excessive, especially when it has a picture, lots of text, then another picture.

    I support you. I believe there should be some limit.

    For instance, on another board I frequent, there is a 400x70 image limit. No text or any thing. It limits you a lot, but makes the board a lot nicer looking. There is a lot of artistic creativity too.

    Recently the board had to be redone, and users opted to keep the limits, so it is liked there at least.

    That may be a bit much, but some limitations would be very nice I think.

    EDIT: No offense, but right after this I saw pacer4ever's signature. Way too much I think.

    lol put a limit on it i would abide but it is stupid if there is no limit to complain. Pretty simple you don't like it ignore sigs. I guess you haven't been on other forums where my sig would be considered small.
    but w/e this is just stupid and petty

    You're only saying that because you know you're one of the ones he's talking about. :P

    We used to specify a size limit, but it was never strictly enforced, so the guidelines just say (essentially) that less is best.

    I had mostly tuned out signatures lately, but now I'm starting to notice the large ones and I've already started contacting a couple people about them.

    I don't think I said that much. It is big to me. That is it.

    All due respect P4E, you just blew up over nothing.

    I have run boards in the past, and normally the limit is not over something stupid and petty but rather because huge sigs slow down load times. The bigger things for me, though, was that I had to wade through some extremely large signatures (and to be fair I never looked at whose they were, don't really care) to get to the meat of what I was looking for (esp in threads that are 5 and 6 pages long).

    Like I said, I know I can turn them off, but I like seeing peoples creativity. I just think there needs to be some form of restraint, be it a limit in size or just a 1 picture & 1 line of text limit.

    No offense meant to anyone.
