I'm terribly sorry if this has been posted elsewhere or if I'm just plain being a pain with this question - but is there a way at the moment to make "banner-like" signatures work, or is it limited to text only? I was just curious since I normally use stuff like this ( http://939e41ae03370909bc43-7080cc68367e...188309.png ) on forums and such, but I know it can be a bit of a pain with clogging pages refusing to load and such. Anyhow, is there a way to make it work? And if not, maybe it's an idea? :)

Tris

I'm really not a fan of huge signatures and I hope that this forum will not have that so that every thread i'm scrolling through more sig's than text.

Hey Tris,

We removed the option of using images in signatures, as we want our content to focus primarily on the posts themselves. They are also limited to roughly 5 lines of text as to not distract from post content. This also keeps loading times and styling consistent throughout the site.

I know that image signatures are quite popular on many forums - and used to use them myself - but I prefer this approach.

No worries, I'm really not a huge fan of clogging myself, but as long as they're not huge blocks of sigs made in Paint it can be quite tasteful xD But text is good too!

Text can be artistic too!

Honestly I get it, it retains the overall 'style' of the forum this way, good choice.

I'm slightly worried about the '5 line' limitation for signatures. If you have a couple things hyperlinked with BBCode or whatever the forum allows, it can easily be over 5 lines even though the finish signature would only be one or two.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. We're not going to be extremely strict with the 5-line rule, but at least try to stay close to it. You won't get a warning for having a large signature unless we remove it and tell you it should be smaller (which is unlikely, if I'm being honest) - and then only if it was added again after the fact.

Go with your gut!
