    Yea that is a setting that hasn't been updated in the control panel since the rule change...... quite some time back. o_O

    I will try to get in and fix that soon, bit busy.

    If you can find someplace to host it, you can use the [ IMG] tags that way and it won't give you the hassle of the size there.
    Or you can wait, but not sure how soon I will be able to get it situated correctly.
    Sorry 'bout that.

    Me thinks sig is meant to give the post a bit of personality.
    Unfortunately, if you look at an average thread you'll see that ~half of the whole viewable screen does not consist of post contents, but sigs. People put just about anything to their sigs.

    "Look i have 4 fans in my rig!"


    Limit the max font size used in sigs to 1.
    Currently it's only a recommendation. Size 1 should be perfectly readable at any sensible resolution used. But the most bugging feature one can find in a sig are the flicking/annoying animated gifs. I've seen several +500kB gifs animated in dozens of screens...

    Here's a good example:
    Username Lane-K's sig (294H x 502L)
    Code:
    - AMD A64 3700+ San Diego@2.9Ghz
    - DFI NF 4 SLI-DR (Bios 704-2BTA)
    - 2x 512Mo OCZ PC4800 Platinum Rev 1.0 (TCCD)
    - 2x 6600GT 
    - HDD Hitachi SATA2, 2x 160Go Raid0
    - Creative SB Audigy
    - Windows XP Pro 32 & 64bit.
    - Watercooling 1-A Cooling: 
    - CPU 1-A HV4
    - 2x GPU SLI
    - 2x Rad. Blacklord 240 4x Fans 120mm 
    + Internal 2 Fans.
    -PSU Hiper Type R 580-630W
    3D Mark 05: 8'075 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=1021187
    
    Note the default size text and 657kB (400 x 69 pixels) gif image animated in 145 frames.
    No its not.
    MaxxxRacer's sig is about 167H x 678L. It's 128px too wide...
    But it doesn't bother me, usually width is not a problem at all.
    Thanks you for the post.
