Sig Re-Enable Request Thread.

Question

Raindancer

Rules:

 

1. This topic isn't for complaining, if you feel your sig was disabled unfairly then talk to the whoever disabled it.

 

2. Don't go off-topic, this topic is for requests on sigs, not talk on your new pink slippers (although mine are very nice).

 

If it's not re-enabled in 5 seconds, don't fret. We're probably banning something.

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Thanks to the wonder that is 'The Internet', we bring you a new era in signature size rules. And more importantly, a new era of signature size rule enforcement.

 

 

The Rules

1. No signature can be over 500 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. That's 500x150. This is INCLUSIVE of any text you have in your signature!

 

2. The cumulative filesize of all the images in your signature must not exceed 80 kb's.

 

3. Similarly, avatars must not exceed 80kb.

 

- see update below.

 

 

How are they to be enforced?
• The 'Edit Signature' page in your control panel shows a green box around your sig. This box will display red lines if your signature is breaking the 500x150 limit. If the box is all green, that means you're ok. If it shows red however, then your sig IS breaking the limit, and no amount of crying and complaining will change that fact. Remember, If you see red, it's too big. If you don't change it, your signature rights will be revoked until you DO change it. If you persist in making oversized signatures, your account will be suspended.

 

•The server will now check the filesize of all the images in your sig. If the total filesize of your signature exceeds the 80kb limit, the server will refuse to save it. If an image appears twice, it's filesize is only counted once.

Sadly, this is not foolproof. Nor is it idiot proof. You could overwrite the image on your host to get around the filesize checker, or you could use an image rotator to 'confuse' the script. If you did something like that, then we'd have to give you one of those oh so terrible temporary bans. We're not saying rotators are illegal, we're saying you have to check the file sizes yourself.

 

•The server will now check how many images are in your signature. If there is more than 10 seperate images in your sig, your changes will not be saved. If an image appears twice, it is only counted once.

 

 

 

What if I break the rules?
•If your signature is over the limit, and we see it, your signature will be disabled. Once you have fixed your signature, make a post HERE and ask a staff member to check your signature. If it's ok, we'll re-enable it. If you continually make oversized signatures we can only assume you're doing so to annoy us and you will be suspended. Continue it and you will be banned. Forever.

 

 

 

Anything else?
All old signature rules are out the window. That means people like Moto will no longer have the privelege of wearing 150kb signature images. Official gangs will no longer have 20 pixels over everyone else either, the only official gang perks now are the Group Images. Sorry, but these are the new rules, and they must apply to everyone. Exceptions create confusion.

•We can now disable your signature whenever we want. If you're being an ass, don't be surprised if your signature rights are revoked.

ADDENDUM (8th Jan 2005): Sexual imagery is banned in signatures and avatars. Women or men in signatures is no problem, including bikinis, hotpants, the usual glamour modelling outfits, and all the other stuff we see in the everyday media. However sexually suggestive images, even if they don't technically contain nudity, are not considered appropriate for this forum.

 

 

Avatars
[Prodded 6th Oct 2006]

 

• Your avatar is the square image that appears under your username next to each post.

• The maximum size of an avatar is 64×64 pixels. Exceptions are some pre-installed avatars, which measure 80×80 pixels.

The rules regarding signature content also apply to avatars.

Maximum filesize is 80kb. Please note this is the maximum, not the target. You are recommended to keep avatar filesizes below 20kb. Use whatever filesize you like. Just don't expect anyone on 56k to see it if it's huge. And don't cry to us when your server's bandwith is raped.

 

 

In Summation
We're hoping that these new rules will finally spell the end for the Sig Size headaches we staff get everyday. It seems to us that forum members simply refuse to adhere to our very simple requests. We'd rather not have to hack iPb to pieces just to get some idiots to listen to us, but it looks like there's no other way. We also hope that everyone will be happy with these new rules. The general sig area is not bigger than usual, and you can fill it with as much text and images as you can, as long as they're within the (rather lenient, if you ask me) rules.

 

Remember, these rules are for the good of the forums. If you don't like our rules, you are more than welcome to leave.

 

These rules will come into effect immediately.

 

 

Edits:

1: Changed 'post' to 'topic'.

2: Added rule to protect against sexual content of signatures and avatars.

3: Changed 'topic' to 'post'.

4: Removed all occurences of "star", seeing as the warning stars were removed.

5: Sexual content rules added.

6: Avatar section added 10/09/05.

Can someone enable my signature again? Apparently my signature was a tiny bit to big, getting it resized atm, thanks.

It's currently 387x168 and the limit is 500x150. It's 18 pixels over the height limit. Only post here once it is within those limits AND there is no red in the green lines that border your signature in your profile should you add any text, tables etc.

Removed the photo from mine, so it complies with the regulations. I'll resize it later on and see if I can make it all fit.

I hope I'm in the right thread for this...

As you see, my sig is over on the left side. Many people have theirs kinda centered in the middle.

How is that done? panic.gif

Easy. Use the center tags around your signature.

It's disabled because it's absolutely huge! You gotta do something if you want it back.

 

 

 

Do you see those RED lines I surrounded with WHITE? Those show that your signature is way too over-sized, as it looks like in your profile. The picture it really over-sized, since it's 538x450 pixels, which means that it's way over the 500x150 size limit. To fix this, you need to re-size the picture. Luckily for you, I already re-sized the image and made it 193x150 pixel. All you have to do is to copy paste the code in your signature control panel.

I'm not sure if it's disabled or it doesn't show up, because your signature clearly doesn't seem to say the "Signature Disabled" line. I think you happen to have placed the codes wrong or something. It could also have happened if you linked the picture to a server that afterward remove that picture from their page, or simply linked the web page of the picture instead of the image itself, and still put the wrong link between the IMG tags. I suggest you upload it to imgur. Can you link me to the picture you're trying to have as signature? Remember to put the codes this way:

 

 

[img=< Image URL here >]

There is simply some problem with the link, because it doesn't lead anywhere. You should save image you would like to have as a signature, upload it or some image sharing page (imageshack, imgur, etc.) and put the link given there on the forums.

You've to use a direct link to the image between the IMG tags.

 

Currently, you're using this - http://r18.cooltext.com/d.php?renderid=734...3&extension=png

 

That is not an appropriate link. It doesn't even exist.

You'd have to save it to your harddrive and reupload it somewhere like Imgur first. The link you gave won't work, sadly.
