The height of my current sig seems to be okay...  I think.  The length, on the other hand, is a completely different story.  I think that as long as it doesn't stretch the sig area that's available lengthwise, it should be okay.    That's what...  600 pixels in lenght?

Hmm... well, I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not so bothered by the length of signature pictures; it's the height that gets to me, because that's what makes the larger pictures harder to scroll down through.

So, Hazy -- my feeling is that while you're technically "in violation" of the 250x250 rule, you're still okay because one of your dimensions is actually below 200.  That's just my feeling, that the horizontal length of pics doesn't matter (so long as the page isn't automatically resized), it's the height.

It's only up for today Mieke. Not to worry love. 

Yeaaaaaah, okay....length it alright too, but still, if the length is passed 450-500 it's really pushing it. Height is more of a problem than width, you're right. We should make some sort of rule like, no more than 500 pixels in width, and 250 pixels in height? How's that? (Mind you, if a person did a 250x500 banner, that;s huge.)  It's really hard to say....

How about....if they want their height to be 250, the width can't exceed 300? And if they want 500 in width....the height can't be more than...150? I dunno!

Actually Mieke, you're banner is 300 in width and 150 in height. I like your size to be honest.

Was that confusing? I'm sorry. I don't really know how to explain it any better.....basically, what I'm saying is, I have two ideas on what maximum sigs should be:

-300 width x 250 height (meaning, the tallest a person can go, is 250 pixels by height.)
-500 width x 150 height (meaning the widest a person can go is 500 pixels)

I have two options because a person might want their sig to be longer in width (this is where choice number 2 comes in) or longer in height (which is choice number one.) A member should only go with or the other.

There's really a need to put a limit on things because it's crazy! Someone can have an insanely big signature and be completely oblivious to it. Appearantly, some people don't know how to comprehend Lucy's Rule #6 because there wasn't a maximum pixel stated.

I don't think ANYONE will get what I just put above....I don't know, don't have another alternative. *shrugs* Or we can simple go with 300x250 max (I do find 300 pixels in height to be a bit tall).

Right now my sig is:

350 width x 224 length

How would we find out if our sig is too big or not with those kind of numbers?

Yeah........I'm starting to think that I'm the only one who gets what I'm talking about. LoL

I guess we should just go with a maximum number then. I still think 300 is a bit big.  I'll settle for that though, I wouldn't mind.

Is it me or are more people paying attention to mod issues?  I wonder why...   (This is a very good thing!)

Anyway, I think I get what you're saying, Ray.  Rules can be somewhat flexible, in that if you've got a sig picture which has one dimension below the "acceptable" level, then it's allowed to be stretched a bit in the other dimension.  In other words, "taller" pics shouldn't be as long from left to right, and "shorter" pics can be longer... compromises can be made, though I do think the maximum sizes you proposed sound good (200 x 400).

I don't think this is as much of a wide-ranging problem as it used to be, though having some concrete criteria can't hurt.  I think we know a big signature when we see one, and if another mod agrees, then I think we're okay to send a PM to the person (even if pixels don't match up exactly to rules or something).

Solsk:  God, I love your sig pic.  It's 249x334, so it's definitely on the margin.  It's so hot though, I don't to ask you to take it down!  Because it's marginal, in my opinion -- hotness aside -- if you're attached to it, keep it.  Though I do have to admit my bias here (if it wasn't obvious already).

Yeah okay, let's just give a pixel size that should me more or less around it. It's still better to have a somewhat stable size so people will get it. 

All in favour of 250x400? (More or less........)
