I want to ask you people with too long signatures to narrow the size down a little, there are people taking in a whole page with their signatures. Also the pictures shouldn't be too large either if you don't use texts 256x80 will do just fine for a gif. Please think about it, and change your signatures. If you won't do it, I will delete the posts with the large signatures and their membership.

BTW, I didn't say your signature has to be that size, it just has to be reasonable. A little larger is acceptable and the signature shouldn't be larger than 4 lines or so...

I tried shrinking the image a bit and cutting off some stuff. It's still a bit big, but it's only 6 kb. Feel free to use it if it works for you Kif.
 
Otherwise, just ask and i'll make one for you.

I just wonder why you all want big signatures. shouldn't a signature be, your name, icq number, email and a nice picture... all those animations and big quotes are unnecesary, it makes the board load slow and it looks ugly.

BTW, please make your signatures transparant, so it won't be white on a grey background... I'm just trying to improve the look of this  smile

I have to agree with slimmy on the fact that big sigs are ugly and impress no-one, but I don't really think its necessary to make sigs transparant, they harm no-one

Ok, I give in to your demands; I will use text-only sigs from this day forward.
And even better, I will increase traffic on my homepage...

No, actually, I think the size is still a bit large, drop the white spacing at the top and make it transparant

The BEST way to avoid transparency problems is to use plain text folks...
I could use millions of kilobytes to tell you my name on a bmp image, but a few lines just looks so much better.

Do you really try to talk reasonably to people who made the "TOP"-thread 16 pages long???

I didn't mean you with my statement.
And actually I really don't care what anybody does here, because I'm a guest here. Personally I take whatever comes. If I don't like it anymore, it's up to me to stay away.
