Signature Rules & Regulations
« on: January 02, 2004, 10:08:51 PM »
New Board, New rules :-)


Signature Rules:
1. Total file size of all Pictures(Sig + avatar) <= 35KB (35,840 Bytes)
2. No Plug-in required signatures (Flash, Java, etc.)
3. Size limits: 550x250 + 2 lines of text (no white space between them)
4. Must follow board policies (No flames/discrimination)
5. If you max-out, or nearly max-out the demensions of your signature, please refrain from using much text as welll...


Think of your signature as an index card, you can doodle on the entire thing, or doodle on all but one line, and save that line for your name... but please refrain from writing on the table...


These signature rules, and mainly the size limitations, are here based on percentages of the screen they occupy under the minimum we can expect to support (800x600 resolution, 56k modem)... if you have a signature thats 550 pixles, it's just bearly avoiding causing horizontal scrolling while the window is maximized... If you add text to the sides of said image, it willl cause scrolling...

As for vertical size, we dont need to see 1/2 a page of one person's signature, yet that's what happens at 800x600 resolution.. Please don't make our fellow poster stuck at work on a 800x600 resolution screen see a -full page- of your signature..

As i said, try to keep the entire signature inside the 550x250 limits, for the best of our community :-)




Also... These are subject to change as we need


Remember--Avatar + ALL pictures used in your signature must fall in the 35KB limit above

You can stay within the Physical Constraints and still exceed the file size limitations. Its a balance for Size Quality Demensions when making sigs that have constraints on them.

your signature was a .bmp, and being 550x250, that made the file size 130,000 Bytes...

the limit, posted in the rules, says file size needs to be <=35,000KB...

I think i e-mailed that explination to you, If you change it to GIF or JPG, it should easily be under the file size limit unless its completely uncompressed
