Does a 2368×4208 pixel photo can get deleted?

Yep, bump. Just to raise a few points.

Wasn't html totally disabled? Or am I wrong?
If so, perhaps you should allow global mods and such to have access to html. I don't know, just a suggestion.

And basically, I agree with Icy from his post a while ago:

Quote:
The best use of any sig would be for advertising the mod you are working on. If you're not working on a mod, then it would be to display your personal taste, whatever it is. (As long as it's within the rules of the forum.)

With a 500kb limit, my animated ShyTroop gif is only about 130kb with dimensions of 400x100. Personaly, I think sig images shouldn't be taller than 100 pixels or wider than 468. (468 is the normal width of a banner, like the advertisements you see on webpages.)

Images larger than this are needlessly large. If you want to see your image in a large size all the time, set it as your desktop wallpaper instead of creating threads where we have to scroll down forever. A normal 50 post (1 Page) thread on PPM is extremely lengthy, because all the sigs that are 150 to 250 pixels high.


Large sigs are rather pointless and just take up space in a thread. It can be extremely annoying especially those with a slow/bad internet connection.

AFAIK, some forums allow a user to disable the loading and viewing of signatures and avatars entirely, which REALLY does give a drastic increase in performance and decrease in loading times.

I think PPM should have this Razz

The signiture rules arnt designed to limit a person, but limit the load time of the forum. He may be banned and is not using the forum but his posts still exist.

It was correct, but it isn't correct anymore. Chielscape's signature was also violating the rules... so both has been dealt with.

Your image was 200 pixel high, but you had a text as well.

The rule is clear: the height of your whole signature (and that includes text as well) is 200 pixel max.

I'm personally happy there are standards for sigs. Just stay within the regs and there won't be any problems. Administrators shouldn't have to babysit us. We don't come to this site for the sigs. We come here to see how to mod the game and to see what others have done. Besides look at
IcySon55's sig it's very well done and well the below the limit.

I've removed far too many signatures later to remember totally your specific case, but I think you had more than 200 height in the total of 2 images + text. It was about 206 height.

It didn't tell me I had gone beyond the limits, and Banshee didn't tell me anything. So either the forum messed it up, or I did. I'm not sure. But right now, I don't care that much. I'm just wondering how it messed up like that.
Muldrake
PostPosted: Sat Sep 23, 2006 3:33 pm    Post subject:

If you go beyond the limit, it simply says you can't do it, and you have to correct it yourself. I'm pretty sure it doesn't kill it immediately.

If Banshee had editted it, he'd have told you about it, so I doubt it was Banshee. My guess is some kind of error with you putting it in, either the forum lost the update for it, or you didn't save it properly.

I tried adding another line of text to my sig a while ago and it was instantly removed. And I mean instantly. Did Banshee remove it immediately, or is there some sort of automatic thing that removes excess sig content? Just wondering.

The rules are posted at 600x200. Why would you think that there is any leniency if you have a 630 pixel wide signature. It wasn't removed yet because Banshee didn't notice it. Otherwise it would have been. Follow the rules!
Muldrake
PostPosted: Wed Sep 20, 2006 3:46 pm    Post subject:

Actually they're too wide. They need to be a max of 600 wide.

So if you could reduced the width to 600 please.

Is my sig. anside the limits?
Anyway, a small gif animation is cool, but i saw a animation that didnt load before I was finised reading the thred. And the 200x800 is OK. A image might get cooler if it's a bit smaller.
But still, this is inly my own thinkin....

EDIT: HALLELUJA, my star AND tiger is still here Smile The size limitations are OK!! ;D

PostPosted: Thu Jun 29, 2006 2:38 am    Post subject:

True, the likelyhood of someone running 640x480 is absurd, but there are some of us that are running 800x600 (I am temporarily, yet temporary may last a while) and with the side columns being about 200 pixels, 600 pixel wide signatures are perfect for the realistic lowest reso users will be running.

No flash files should be allowed in signatures, if they are now (I don't believe so) then Banshee needs to remove this right immediately.

Thats all I got for now.

As far as I know Banshee is the admin here and has more expirience in running a forum than most of you complaining, he makes the rules if there is a reason better than " it looks cool cus I l0ve big sigs that take up a quarter of peoples screens!!!! " then I'm sure he would have found it.


the only thing i get upset from are ppl like you, who put words in ppl's mouth they never said.
