    Default Signature Images and Image Guidelines

    We've been hearing from some folks who have long wanted to be able to have images in their signatures, and have decided to give it a try.

    We're going to do a trial run of allowing images in signatures. Once we allow this to take place for a while, we'll evaluate whether to allow this on a more long-term basis.

    The Rules:

    We have enabled the ability for you to link to images for your signature. Please keep the following in mind:
    • Images should be no larger than 150 pixels high, and no wider than 450 pixels wide.
    • ABSOLUTELY NO ANIMATED IMAGES OR VIDEO OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED.
    • You may link to one image in your signature.
    • Images should be as small as possible (File size).
    • Must comply with the Community Guidelines.


    If you do not enjoy looking at forum signature images, there is an option under Settings > General Settings to turn off Signatures. This will allow you to not see others' signatures.

    Improper signatures can be reported, and the moderation team can take action against those who violate these rules, including disabling the ability for you alone to upload a signature image.

    Full of win and long overdue! I have a tutorial on another site about how to make sigs as small as possible (file size wise) so will see about porting it over to here at some point in case people need help.

    EDIT - Tutorial done, check my signature for it.

    Should be stickied.
    Bummed about no .gifs, but that/s only because I'm an addict who should seek help.

    Could the following please be implemented too:
    - All signtatures adhere to a maximum height of 150 pixels, some of the chain quote signatures are quite rediculous.

    Whilst I understand why others probably will look forward to having pictures in their sig, I browse this site a lot from my tablet or phone. I prefer a minimalist interface on a small screen.

    Thanks for pointing out the hide signatures button, I never knew it existed

    While I understand the no .gif thing, I think memnir should be granted access to have a gif sig.....but no one else. It's kind of his thing!

    I've actually ignored several people with signatures that span half the page on a 24" monitor. But now that there will be pictures in sigs, I'll likely turn them off completely. I might leave those people on ignore though. The forum is a lot more peaceful that way.

    Oh, thanks for this. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna end up with signature images disabled, people tend to abuse those.

    Now if you could only do the same with cosmetic pets...

    Awesome I'll be my Sibling Rivalry Sig for now (made for our guild site) but if this becomes "official" I'll build a custom one

    Oh btw I will END anyone who screws this up, myself and many others have been fighting for it for a long time especially due to a certain other forum screwing it up, you can be sure I will be watching sigs like a hawk.

    That aside I cannot WAIT to see what some people come up with, there's been a little bit of art posted on this forum but there's no real section for it, my hope is this will spark something even greater in the community.

    How about working search or proper redirecting of old threads from Google searches and stuff.
    As Salorna boys say, already ignoring people with half a page of quotes.

    In a strange sort of way, I was hoping this would never come to pass. In an even stranger sort of way, I'm glad it did! I've made many a forum sig in my time, but my problem lies with my ocd (self diagnosed ). First, spend time selecting the proper image, then what brush to use for the background, then what color scheme to use. After all that I get to do the most time consuming part of sigs I make, font selection. It might help if I didn't have a couple thousand different fonts to choose from, but it has to flow with everything properly. Meh, went against my ocd personality and whipped up the one below in 15-20 min.



    P.S. Thanks for turning the sigs on!

    I wouldn't have been either, but I've disabled all signatures now, so I'm pretty impartial to this change.
