  • Sig images...

    Don't want to resurrect that huge thread over the thread title, but just like to ask for the sig conditions on vB.com.

    1. Dimension limits?
    2. File size limits?

    Never knew these details as I just use a text sig, but designing one now and need to know the details (I make them very bandwidth friendly!).

    Signature Size Limits

    All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, and you can't have both text and images

    For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)

    Do not use images with large text to bypass the previous item

    For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size

    Animated images in sigs are not allowed

      Darn it.

        Sorry to bring back an old thread, but my question is relevant to the topic...

        The rules for this forum has the max file size for sig images being 20k. Is there a reason it's not more? I'm not complaining, and not questioning anyone's decisions, but I'm imposing the same limits at my own forum (hey, if it's good enough for vBulletin... ), and a couple members are making a big stink about it. So I'm wondering if there's an impelling reasons why the file size is only 20k?

          To prevent high pageloads probably Unfortunately lots of people are still on dialup.

            I would imagine because this is a very sizable forum large image filesizes would contribute significantly to the bandwidth usage?

              Bandwidth is not a problem for this web site.

                I was about to ask this. So it about security?

                  Users viewing the page still have to download the images, and these users may still be on dial-up.
