We've been fairly tolerant lately regarding member signatures, but it's time to crack down!

Below are what the rules state from section 3 of 'Laws of the Land (http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=354)'. I strongly advise each member read it.

3. Ensure that your signature:

-Does not exceed 500 pixels in width and 150 pixels in height.
-Does not exceed 100 kb in size.
-Contains only 1 image. Although, multiple smilies are acceptable if accompanied by text only.
-Does not contain annoying animations.
-Follows all the rules applying to posts themselves.

Large, ugly and slow loading signatures visually pollute the forums, enlarge threads and slow down modem users. Show respect for your fellow posters by ensuring your signature, if used, is somewhat discreet, space efficient (avoid using vertical content) and quick loading.

We will be scanning signatures in a few days, so we advise you take advantage of this notice.

Those in violation will have their signature privileges revoked. This is not to ruin your enjoyment. We know each member wants to express themselves differently. However, this is required.

If you're unsure if you're in violation, please respond to this thread with your inquiry.

Sorry, you're exceeding the maximum 150 pixels in height. I can re-size it for you right now if you want. Let me know!

I believe all of BB2W's are 500x125 and under 100 kb. But, I could be wrong. Either way, yours is good.

Yes, that is a NASCAR that I created for NR2003. It's posted over at Masgrafx Racing (http://www.masgrafx.com/).

its 400x206 ..so you're ok on the width but the height would need to be decreased by 56 and then you'll be all set. :cool:

It's a fictional car. That picture was taken inside of NR2003 @ Watkins Glen.

It can take up bandwidth, but also its mainly to help keep the forums nice and streamlined and looking nice..as well as helping out our friends on dialup who just get killed with big pics and animation in the sigs.

I don't follow NASCAR at all but if that car was racing I'd start payin more attention. Who do we contact on gettin that through. I mean I found out Little Debbie has a car so why not Heinz?

I know my signature was among the animated ones, plus had too much stuff underneath it. I made the image static and cleaned up the text. Hope this works for now. I'll work on another legal banner for next season.

Good Morning,

There was a reason why I deleted your signature ... and there are no other suggestions besides meet the criteria or have no signature.

However, I will resize it for you this time. Yes, I'm grumpy right now. Hate me! :rolleyes:

This notice has been active for over a week. I'll be assuming you didn't take heed to the notice posted if you are violating the signature criteria and begin removing your signature privileges permanently.

Hey Blitzburgh, i love your Big Ben sig. Would you be so kind as to let me use it on other boards? If so, could ya please post the direct addy to it for me? For some reason, ever since i installed DSL, i can't seem to right click and get to the properties part. Many thanks in advance if you would help a fellow Steeler fan out! :smile:

We all get stressed out sometime. Hopefully it's not too much. and with my text I have on mine would my sig Text AND regular image be too big, if so could it be resized so it fits the critera. Thanks.
