Recently there's been loads of members I've seen with literally tens of images in their sig, some have HUGE UNNECESSARY WRITING, some have about 5 quote boxes.
Either way, you're all breaking the rules. Not only does your sig look crap, it wastes a lot of space and causes people to have to scroll a lot more than usual.

The RULES clearly outline the max size we allow for sigs, 500x200 pixels worth of space.

Mods will now be cracking down on offenders, you'll be sent a PM to remind you to fix it. If it is not fixed within 24 hours your sig will be removed until further notice, and you'll be given a formal warning.

Thank you.

I've noticed whitaker has been using massive signiatures, i asked him once to reduce it. he did, then it got slowly bighger again.
And fone bone is a massive text offender :P
Workkng on a set of new sigs, UB's and avi's atm, i'll be sure to abide by the rules. ^_^

People get crazy with their sigs and think they are so clever/cool with them. I could understand some lenience with them, as like, maybe 500x250 instead of 500x200, but once you become excessively out of the limits it just becomes retarded.

And most of the times, the sigs are just plain crap. Like Whitaker's monstrosity of a sig, which is just a GTA 4 screenshot, showing a complete lack of originality and possibly overcompensation for something.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

Yeah, I hate sigs that show a lack of originality. Like no one can come up with their own ideas anymore. :rolleyes:

Only YOU see your logs. And staff. I can't see your log, you can't see mine. Members((even elites)) can't see any logs but their own.

Oh, it's all good then :gappy:

I hate people who just whack a picture in as their sig, regardless of size, it makes me think they are too incompetent to create something even a little individual.

And don't forget Bubsy. For a new member, he's pissing me off already with that lame-ass Hitman sig that's probably three times the size of a proper sig.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

But I just love grinding my machine to a halt because someone has the manners of a six-year-old. Please, ANIMATE these
monuments to inadequacy, I don't think it's running slow enough. (For those who didn't get that, it's sarcasm.)

I presume offenders have been notified by now.

As I have received no PM about this I take it mines okay.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

Thanks Shake. My high dollar graphics program (Windows Paint) kinda fubared my text.

I need the original sig you were using. I have the DS sig .PSD so that's no problem at all. I'm simply going to remove the unnecessary white areas by putting the text on the actual image, so it should look a bit better.
