Sigs and avatars

Sizing guide for sigs and avatars

Sigs

185 x 500 (w & l)

I've only just today put the sig limit in place. It still means a fairly decent size for sigs, but will mean contraints on the height. I think this is reasonable as tbh having huge tall pics in your sig isn't easy on the eye. Far better they run across the screen than down it.

2 links per sig is the limit.

Maximum font size is set at 200%.

Maximum character length is 450.

Avatars

100 x 100 pixels and 50KB size wise (51,200 bytes)

This allows some leeway for moving gifs to be used in avatars. But please don't go overboard with the use of them as they can get annoying for others viewing threads.

****

If you wish to disable seeing sigs you can go to

User Control Panel > Board Preferences > Edit Display Options

and change what you see in there.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Where can I see the dimensions of my sig pic? I suspect it may be too big.

Right click the picture and select properties. It will tell you there. Yours is 157 x 240 pixels, so I don't think there're any problems there.

Thanks Cailen! :thumb: That's good news because I'm not quite ready to take it down yet, lol. BTW, I enjoyed your video for Bus Driver's Song on YouTube.

Haha! That is awesome! I'm going to make it my mission to use that somewhere this week.
