    Just a personal opinion, but I think the sig pic sizes should be more limited. Some of them are way too big, and distract (at least to me) from the content of the thread.

    I have adjusted the CSS so that images in signatures have a maximum height of 200 pixels. This will automatically scale down any image that is larger. I'm also playing around with the idea of making sigs "fade out" unless you move your mouse over them, so that they don't dominate the content. This might be a tiny bit distracting, though.

    I had sigs turned off --- but I'm digging the fade, too.

    :headbang: Nice job, sweetie.

    I had turned them off as well. I need to check out this new fade fad!

    I hate to necro an old thread, but is there an official limit on the size of animated gifs in sigs? I want to use one but I don't want it to be so obnoxiously large that it slows things down for everyone else.

    I wish you would turn that off.

    As long as the sig is not ridiculously big, it should be a part of your post to be honest. I like to check out sigs without having to work for it. :p

    I would use sigs if I had any talent at all making them.

    Yeah, so I just decided to go for it. If it's a problem, let me know.

    Why don't some of you just embed a YouTube video in your signature? Good grief.

    I've seen maybe three of us on here, including me now, that have animated gifs in their sigs. It's not exactly an epidemic.

    People find grief with anything here.

    I had a youtube embeded video as my sig and I got contacted if I could take it down because "it was annoying" scrolling all the way down. :rolleyes:

    By the way, it wasn't by any staff members.

    If it wasn't by an Admin, you should've ignored it. LOL

    Yeah I was just trying to be understanding and nice about it.

    If I feel like doing it again I'll probably ignore the person this time. lol

    ChexOrWrex I'm so unbothered and that is what bothers people

    If you dont like sigs, put them on ignore (turn them off).

    That's the policy with members you find annoying, so why not do the same with signatures? ;)

    Imo if you have to complain about images on the internet being too large or flamboyant for your liking, you need to find a hobby. Or a woman.

    You realize that half of the members won't be able to see this post, right?

    There is a difference from a signature and 15 videos. And yes I turned mine off months ago
