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.

Only for you, my dear. :wub:


Buck, I removed the former image because it was messy and out of date. For those of you who need such visual representation, Manga Scraps' should suit just dandy.

Sounds good. :wub:

My signatures are always smaller, and my avatar never changes so... I'm safe.

Question: Am I allowed to go upto 200 pixel height, with ONLY an image, no text? Or is the 150 pixel height limit there for the just the images?

This has been answered. Images must not exceed 500 by 150 px, and the full length incuding text should be no more than about 200px. An extra 500 by 50 px would basically multiply the filesize by 1.3 (or add a third of the filesize of a 500 by 150 sig, if that's how you look at it) which can have some big effects. Too much bandwidth usage = bad.

The combined size of a signatures images must be no more than 150x500, yes?

Could you, in theory, have two 50x350 banners next to each other?

Could you have two 75x500 signatures one top of each other, but with a gap in between?

Basically, are we looking at a 150x500 box on the screen, or are we able to mix and match as long as the sizes all add up?

(I've left filesize out because it's obvious that the combined filesize has to be less, regardless how many images of whatever dimension you choose to use.)

The images may be placed in any fashion desired; they simply cannot be such that the combined dimensions exceed those defined. So, to your first three questions, yes.

Right click your image, and look for "properties", it should give you a size.

Well, it's advised that whatever pictures and text you have are collectively under about 200 pixels high.
