Yeah, man. Now know one will know that I am Bronzong on three different personality tests, and that I am caring person who feels the need to make his own path.

How will the world go on


No but seriously, people hide a LOT of junk in their spoiler tags, and it messes with people who have crappy connections. Please, think of the little guy.

What exactly is the cap for images? I occasionally get a message that I have too many images in my signature. The rules say I'm allowed have several small images. How many exactly is several?

you took the words right out of my mouth. It's best to delete the option to have spoilers in signatures completely now as it has become a useless coding. Except for in posts. Those could be useful still. But probably those will end soon too...

~~~~~~

@Captain Jim: not all of us put "junk" in our signature. I am in the Savior Project and I found a good way to store our saved pokemon links so that the creator of the contest and her verifiers could find it easily without having to go through tons of posts/pages in the thread. By putting the content in a spoiler in the signature. Now they just have to click and voilŕ, everything would be nicely listed. But the thing is...YOU HAVE TO CLICK TO OPEN THE SPOILER

It's only bad for those "little people" if you have a lot of images in your signature. Not when it's just plain words and coding. The number of images are already restricted by the forum itself.

I am actually one of those "little people" who have a bad connection and problem with my computer lagging all the time. But I never asked for such a restriction. It sometimes annoyed me when people exceed the width and height that's allowed in images, but that's where moderators come in and punish those who don't read the rules.


Wait a minute...I get it now. It's done so that the moderators won't have to work...the site does it for them now =)
Oh well, have fun answering all the future questions about why people's signature is cut...It can be classed under all the "no to trading" threads and all the other threads that are clearly a violation to the rules.

~~~~

Thank goodness this stupid rule got pushed through at the end of the month. Now I have 9 days time to find a solution to the Savior Project Recording.

I can't see much point in the cut off. Spoilers were made so that you can have large amounts of text and coding without stretching all the sigs. I do think people can have some useless spoilers, mainly those who just cram pictures into them. I can't see an easy way out though, some people can use a number of pictures without it being worthless...

I put most of my stuff in one spoiler so that it doesn't take up much space first look and so that I can have a medium image at the top without exceeding the limit.
Now, because of this cut off, my technique is pointless...I do not have excessive images, excessive amounts of images, large chunks of text or content which goes against forum rules...
Yet I find that my signature is cut off about 2cm after the beginning of the spoiler, rendering my signature useless.

I am now changing my signature so that it will work, but I am saving the old code to a word file so that if this is reversed, I have my signature saved.

I'm still laughing at how people didn't notice you can go to somebody's profile and click the Signature tab and be able to see their entire signature without the cut-off. I did say the cut-off only comes into affect when posting.

By the way, I've seen many forums do this. And some of them weren't as generous as to allow you an entire 450 pixels before it gets cut-off.

Nice idea. Keeps the posts the same size and let's people put whatever the heck they want. Wins all round, by the looks of it.

I will still yell at people for images that are larger than 500x300 or ridiculously long animations that have a huge filesize.

I think a hard size limit is a little unfair to people who hide a lot of text behind spoiler tags, but if there's gonna be a scroll bar, I guess it'll be less of an issue.

What I think would be more useful would be more defined restrictions (and better enforced) restrictions on the number of large images. *glares at the previous post* But that would entail more work for the real mods, so I understand if that idea gets shot down.

I think he meant within the rules, as in they can put in whatever they want as long as it is still within the rules.

...You definitely have too many BIG images in your signature. The other rules still apply, as Wymsy just stated, meaning you still have to follow the maximum image dimensions and the number of big images allowed. Fix it.

Also, this.

Thank you Car=Bidoof!
And thank you Wymsy for listening, but I have a comment on what you said...
When I went to my signature on my forum page...it did cut off, that's when I first noticed it because I rarely open my signature up in posts for space saving reasons.
