Signature Rules

    To all the members:

    Please make sure you have read the Signature Rules (see below). Lately, many signatures have been breaking the rules. There has been far too many signatures to edit. Signatures in violation will be deleted without warning. It's suggested that just in case your signature gets deleted, you save the content in NotePad so that you won't permanently lose any text and/or links.


    Signature Rules
    Animated sigs are to be no larger than 75 pixels high, 475 pixels wide. There is currently no limit on the file size of animated sigs, but please keep it reasonable--please do not use more than three or four frames.

    Still pic sigs (non-animated) may be no larger than 100 pixels high, 480 pixels wide

    Sigs that include an image can have 2 lines of text.

    Sigs that do NOT include images can have up to 7 lines of standard-sized text

    Sigs may include 1 image up to the pixel limits and 1 smilies OR 1 more image in the form of a smilie (transparent background, 19x19 pixels.)

    Sigs are NOT to contain spoilers!

    Signature rules WILL be enforced. If your signature is currently breaking the rules, please change it.

    Signatures in violation may be edited without warning. A "Signature in violation" message may be added to your signature. You can remove the message as soon as you edit your signature to comply with the rules.



    An example of an incorrect signature:
    Code:
    Line1
    
    Line 3
    
    Line 5
    
    Line 7
    
    Line 9
    
    Line 11
    
    Line 13
    Lines of blank space count towards the total number of lines.



    Another incorrect example:
    The maximum is 7 lines of normal sized text.



    Correct Signature:
    Code:
    Line 1
    Line 2
    Line 3
    Line 4
    Line 5 
    Line 6
    Line 7
    But, of course, you may have less than 7 lines of text. And if you have an image in your signature, then you may only have 2 lines of text (See my signature as an example).


    If these rules are not followed, signatures in violation will be delted without warning. Again, it's suggested that just in case your signature is in violation and gets deleted, you should save your signature in your notepad (under My Controls).

    Thank you for cooperating. :)

    Who knows, but I find it odd I just had to remove yours since it was in violation, after you had just commented on people not obeying the rules.

    Signatures are judged on 1024x768 res.

    I'm not exactly sure what flamingtext.com is, but as long as the image follows the rules.

    That would not work...it doesn't fit the animated image pixel limit (it's too long)

    One of the reasons I'd like to see animated signatures phased out.
