Setting signature limits
 
after a fair deal of scrolling through a couple of threads with just a handful of posts i decided to put this out there...

people who have vertical signatures should be forced to comply with a limit of a certain number of lines...

it is no fun scrolling through a thread with a couple of people both with signatures around 10-15 lines tall...

case in point...

scroll down about 3 or 4 posts and you will see what I mean...

perhaps a limit of 5-6 lines of vertical text will suffice coz that should be enough to hold most pertinent data... or a horizontal scroller...

Couldn't agree more, Saz.

Yeah, signiture lengths should be within reason, and other posters do need to scroll down through the page to read.

In the case of that post, if the user would kindly put the sig in a smaller font size, and put more then one item on a line...it would be less to scroll through...

well I am on my gf's laptop right now and she has lower res... your sig takes up about 1/3rd of the screen (under the logo) in the thread.. its still not as bad as some of the sigs in the link I provided.. the cam dude's sig takes up over half the screen on this display (she has a smaller screen on the laptop)

Since you use a smaller font for most of it, I would say not. But yours is pretty close to the maximum that most of us would like to see.

I'm still glad we don't allow pics here. :)

MUYA can have a 14' long sig for all I care. :D *shaddap Gib* :D

Oh and Chris, I think yours is fine but it might be nice to shore it up a bit by removing some of the line breaks.
