The rules for signature entries are the same as regular sigs. 80kb size & 150x500 pixel dimensions.

It's been reduced.

Harley once said there was no filesize limit. So I'm guessing this doesn't apply here anymore.

didnt he just say that for the one where the topic was Animation though?? Because. I dolt think it's fair I that some of us think it's 80kb therefore limiting our ways to produce something, while someone else has heard differently! So how about we let the OP set the rule Everytime a new SOTW starts? Y'know have them write if here is a certain size limit or not!

My signature was animated which is why I thought it would be okay. Since Harley said it for an animated SOTW. We'll just wait for what GW has to say, he made the topic this time around.

Yeah, we normally keep it 80kbs or under so that people can use the sigs if they wish on these forums.

I guess we should start saying whether to keep the size limited or not from here on out, since there was a confusion, let's go ahead and continue this contest with no limitations. Next SOTW, whoever makes it can decide what limitations.. icon14.gif

Wow, I think I've made a mistake.

I used this for the main layout it - http://www.bhmpics.c...s_city-wide.jpg

Yeah that's New York, gonna edit it and make another signature.

Thanks for the heads up.

it still looks brilliant for under 80kb nice one,


i think animated sigs should be allowed for sotw aslong as they are wearable on the forums, and maybe once in a while we can do a sotw that is just animated sigs with no file size limits for the guys on the forums that are good with animation, just an idea. icon14.gif

That's the thing; they are. They just have to be under 80Kb in size. It's tough to do but it IS possible. And the only reason the file-size on animation was unlimited was because good animations usually weigh in way over 80 Kb.

I believe you are a tad bit misinformed, the theme is Historical Places

Southern France after the Normandy invasions. I'd say that's historic. In a way I see your point, I'll edit my post above. smile.gif

@tms_junk, I like the idea of the before and after but I believe it's still best that we just state 'no files oversized and no animations', etc .. some people will make signatures entirely from scratch, with no resources from google images or whatever.. so that would take an arsenal of links because of brushes, patterns, gradients, etc lol .. we'll just keep it on an honor system and hopefully those who join the contest will follow protocol, those who don't will be disqualified.

Which each SOTW is entirely up to the topic creator. Rules, specifications, etc.

Anyways, entry;

Established possibly as early as 312 BCE.

Edit: Edited the signature size so it fits within the 80kb mark!
