DO NOT POST IN HERE SAYING YOU WILL FOLLOW THESE RULES.

You are only allowed to post questions pertaining to the rules.

---

I decided that with all of the members we have now, that setting some specific signature rules would be a good idea. Below will have all of the information you need, like signature height, images, etc. If your signature does not comply with the signature rules, you will be asked to change it. Refusal to do so will result in your signature being removed and an official warning. If your signature is constantly caught breaking the rules, you will receive an official warning for that too.

If you are unsure if your signature complies with the signature rules, please make a post for a check in this thread.

Signatures are bound to global forum rules

Maximum signature height

If your signature is longer than 450 pixels, anything after it is instantly cut-off when you post. For your reference, here is an image that is 450 pixels high:



Images in signatures

You cannot have an image any bigger than 500 by 300 pixels exactly in your signature. You should not have more than one image like this in your signature. Here is an example if you do not know how big that is:



Medium-sized images are considered to be about 400 by 100 pixels. Here is an example:



There should be no more than 2-3 images like this in your signature.

Small images are considered to be 80 by 80 pixels. Here is an example:



You are allowed to have several of these images in your signature.

Images must not exceed 300kb in memory size.

Links and text in signatures

You may not put links trying to sell people things in your signature. Links to things such as your own forums or sites are perfectly fine.

Avoid using any text bigger than this (size 5)

Spoiler tags

You are not allowed to hide big images or text that exceed the limits in spoiler tags, and you should have no more than three (3) spoiler tags in your signature.

Added August 25th, 2010: You are only allowed up to 12 GPXPlus Pokémon/eggs in your signature. If you use the party image code, it automatically counts as 6. This means you can have 12 single images -or- 6 single images + 1 party image -or- 2 party images.

---

If there are any questions you have, please post them here.

So, we can't hide excessive image sizes in Spoiler tags. What size is considered excessive?

this may be a stupid question, it's kind of a rephrasing of his but it'd clear it up alot for me, 300x500=1500 so it has to be under 1500 or so, like 400x400=160,000 total pixels, is it a specific pixel number like that or is it perimeter? 300+300+500+500=1600 is distance around and 400+400+400+400=1600, so how is that going to be measured exactly?

I think knowing this'll help me and probably other people know how legal their signature pic is without going in paint and counting the pixels =)

EDIT: I just measured the 450 pixels on the screen with my fingers and it was under, woohoo! =)

...You're looking too deep. It is not parameter or area, it is exactly 500 wide and 300 high. You don't have to count every pixel. If you right click ANY image (even on your computer) and select "Properties", you can see the dimensions.

Quick question: is there a rule regarding content? Like, I just added some eggs from another egg site, a dragon one, to my signature. Is that alright?

Other adoptables are fine so long as they're within the image limits. Which most adoptables are.

Your sig is more than fine.. there's people with way more than that. Anyways, there's a signature check thread.

I made a small edit to the signature length limit, just so nobody freaks out when they see it whilst posting.
