The rules are simple:

Avatars -
  • Must be 100 x 100 pixels or smaller
  • Must have a file size no larger than 90KB [92,160 bytes]
  • Must be suitable for all users [No obscene, eye-stressing, or offensive content]
Signatures -
  • Images as a group must be no larger than 500 x 150 pixels
  • Images as a group must have a file size no larger than 150KB [153,600 bytes]
  • Must be suitable for all users [No obscene, eye-stressing, or offensive content]
  • Must be 1500 characters or less
  • Must as a whole, text and images, be no longer than your average post [try to keep it under 200px high].
  • Anti-clan signatures are prohibited. For a more in-depth definition, please click this link. (see rule VIII.)
The only exception to the image rules is the images made for Zybez Staff members, SwiftKit Team members, and some signatures made specially for official Zybez/Rsc run competitions (Check with a staff member if you are unsure); these images do not count toward the size or dimension limits.

Please note, underbanners and goal signatures are images and do count toward the image limits. You may have any number of images in your signature, provided they do not, all together, break the size or dimension limits.

If we find you have an oversized signature, we will provide you a warning and hide or remove the offending signature altogether. It is your obligation to read these rules and ensure that your signature follows them. If you replace your signature without fixing the problems within it, the signature will again be removed and you may be suspended.

The only things that have changed are:

-- 'roughly' 125kb becomes 150kb firmly (153,600 bytes if you're on IE)
-- Firm 200px length becomes roughly 200px

So you got more freedom now...  I don't see why you're complaining about it.

Well why not make it that you can have a pic of 200pix high like tekst?
It doesnt matter if its tekst or pic for scrolling.


I think the tekst and pic limits should be the same.

Has the size of the signature been reduced or enlarged?  I can't remember the last update we had on the signature before this one, and I sure as hell can't remember what the previous dimensions were. :wub:

Text doesn't take up nearly as much bandwidth as pictures do.

Same number of pixels, but the filesize for signatures got increased, and the filesize for avatars got decreased.

Well my avatar on here is one I chose from your gallery so it should conform fine. Which is too bad. I was thinking about using the one I use on two other forums but it's too high and wide. Is there a way to shrink it down? I really like it although if you shrink it it my look goofy.

Thanks for the clarification. I will check my signature right now to make sure it's ok.

If you put in a bigger avatar, it is automatically shrunk down to around 75x75, I guess the only thing you have to watch is file size.

Could you raise the size of the avatar a little, maybe to 100 kb?  Mine is only a little above the limit.  It's ok if you don't... I guess it's time to look for a new avatar :wub:

Never had a problem with the signature rules, good to see them updated and more flexable to manage.

Just a suggestion, shouldn't you change it to Signature and Avatar Rules?  A friend of mine had trouble finding the avatar rules because of the misleading title.
