    Lately, many signatures have been breaking the rules. It's become overwhelming to tell everyone that there signature is in violation. It's been said before that signatures in violation would be deleted without warning, though it hasn't always been the case. But if members continue to keep on breaking the rules, signatures in violation will be deleted without warning.

    Signature Rules
    Animated sigs are to be no larger than 75 pixels high, 475 pixels wide.

    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:
    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:
    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.

    If these rules are not followed, signatures in violation will be delted without warning. 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. :)

    I guess you guys are getting tired of explaining all these rules over and over again ... ;)

    Well, I am sure, only if you get a look at their sig with "signature in violation" ... they might learn and know why, and change and try to be better ... IMO ...

    Ok I totally understand the rules...I was in violation, but then I fixed it!!! Yay for me, I know. Here's my question: I want to put a picture in my signature, but I can't figure out how to do it!! I already have one that I made, so can someone tell me how I get it into my signature?

    I think you go to the Fan Media forums and upload your picture by adding a reply in the Signature thread, right click on your uploaded picture and copy it's property URL, then go to "My Controls" and on the sidebar it says "Edit my signature", click on that and use the image tags --> [I MG ] (no spaces) (should start with http://(picture URL [/IM G ], there's your signature! I hope that helped and not too confusing!

    And while I'm here, my sig is okay, isn't it? I'm paranoid about having it taken away from me!!!

    Please read the signature rules again. MANY signatures are far too long. There is simply too many to edit. :shocked:
    If signatures are still a problem, then I will make a new announcement so it will show up on the Portal.
    After that announcement is made, all signatures in violation will be deleted without warning.

    Tip: Just in case your signature is deleted because it violated the rules, save it in your NotePad. This way, you won't lose any of the text or links.
