Pixels are the little dots that make up the image on your screen. To check my signature I went into Paint, resized the blank image to 250x600 pixels, and saved it. Open up just the image and you can see what the maximum size is. I pulled it over my signature and it showed me what I would need to do to bring my signature into line with the new rules.

The rules aren't in effect yet but will be in a few days. I say it is better to fix your signature now than later.

You'll need to make it a good bit smaller if you want to keep the rest of your signature. The picture alone is 321 pixels high. Currently your signature is over twice the maximum height allowed by the new rules.

I turned off avatars and signature long ago. Maybe if others did the same, the board would be a little quicker!

Right now your photo in your sig is 321 pixels by 480 pixels. Here it is at 250 pixels high. If you want to keep the other information now in your sig, the picture will need to be further reduced in size.

Thanks. I will give it a try.

I would suggest waiting until the new rules go into effect to make any changes. If you have problems then you should ask for help on the tech board. They will be able to help you.

Needed this for a while now. I've noticed the HUGE change in siggies since I joined under two years ago -- I guess we are getting computer savvy with pictures and tickers and such!

I like to know a little about the poster and when they are going to WDW ... but sometimes it was getting ridiculous.

Now for myself ... I better STOP adopting cats or my siggie will get too big and for some of the rest of you ... better stop having kids! (ok ... I am teasing - please adopt pets and have more kids ... but keep those pictures small)

PS: I love you moderators - what a great job you do!

Way to go guys!!! I hate having to scroll through a half paged signature (do people even read them?) to get to a new post


LOVE the new rules!! Though I have the siggy's turned off, b/c I can't stand scrolling through all the visual clutter.

Make the board much more enjoyable!

Thanks! I turned off signatures a long time ago too, but maybe if I can set it so that they only happen once per thread I'll turn them on again, I do get curious sometimes when people comment on them.

I'm very glad to have the no siganture option, too! Thanks!

I like the new rules. I like having a signature (mine is in compliance ), but I like faster boards more. :

If my box trick (talked about earlier) is accurate your signature is to long. The bottom part of your ticker and the rest of the signature fall outside of the 250 pixel length limit.

Okay....if you right click on your picture and go to Properties it should say how large the pixels are...right? I'm going to redo mine, I'm pretty sure it's probably too big.

I like the rules though, I hate when I'm reading and the page keeps skipping down because it's still loading pic/sigs.

edited to add: okay mine says 213 x 319 just for the picture. That doesn't include the little mo-ped smiley Maybe I'll just get rid of the pic....I've not had it on there long anyway, maybe I'll change it to my avatar.

Looks like the new rules are here. There are a number of signatures that are cut off right in the middle of a picture.
