We previously had maximum dimensions for images in signatures of 600px (horizontal) and 120px (vertical).
As more members now use the site via their mobile phones or tablets, and whilst some users have slower internet speeds… we have now decided that the maximum allowed size in total for anyone wishing to have a signature will be 600px (horizontal) and 120px (vertical) - plus one additional line of text that may not exceed 900px (horizontal).
Animated GIFs are allowed, as long as they do not exceed the maximum image of 600px (horizontal) and 120px (vertical), and are not greater than 100KB in size.
Any signatures containing non-compliant images may be removed without notice.
For clarity, the white rectangular image below is 600px by 120px:-
Note: Please do not have signatures that resemble anything like the moderator signatures. The only exception to this is for the member ‘Handman’ - who contributed heavily to making the moderator signatures in the first place.
