    Petition to increase signature weight and size

    Hi all, I'd like to propose a little suggestion:

    I know the signature rules were chosen to help with 56k connections back in the day, but it's 2013 now. I'm not saying we should be allowed to jump from 35k to 35MB, but more would be appreciated. How about going from 35k to about 65-70k for regulars and the same kb jump for staff and admins? Bigger signatures would be appreciated as well. Monitor sizes have increased greatly in the past 4 years, and we could get maybe longer or taller signatures.

    Please? It's very tough compromising signature quality just to make it fit. See example below This is coming from a member who remembers making signatures back in the 480x80 days...

    Current limitations...As you can appreciate, there is a lot of noise and the size limits the entire thing...


    Current DS with more allowed image weight. I'm pretty fine with these limitations and should be fine for all members


    Dreaming?!


    Please, consider this? I had to swap back to the lamest quality and size signature so I could have it

    They don't? Well I got mine changed twice because of that 130 for regulars is pretty little too...Maybe add a little SP fee for those that are not DS but want a little more height? Hell, I'd pay all I have in the bank ATM just for that. Wish I could commit to the DS again, but work and life don't allow me at the moment and I really don't want to let anyone down.

    Actually, I changed your signature because the height was at 200 pixels. I wasn't looking at the file size at the time.
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!

    I edited the file size of my own signature a while ago to comply with the rules so I would expect others to do the same.

    If you're using GIMP, you can save the signature as a JPG, go into preview mode and tweak whatever settings help lower the file size without seeing a noticeable loss in quality. I didn't drop below 95 percent for my own signature.

    Thorzilla, I think the current dimensions are fine (users can always subscribe for 550x160) but we could probably increase the file size for regular members.

    That would be AWESOME! Just one question, what are the forum policies regarding sacrificing a little widtxh to gain some height?

    I don't think you can. We just go by the max dimensions.

    EDIT: I can try tonight, Kuro. It's no problem.

    I'm talking but the max kbs because mine is like 100+
    They'll say something if your sig is larger than 500x130 though.
    I agree with what you gotta say though thor.

    Is it really a big deal.. Because it is not like you have too have your sig to be required to be the size the forum sets... Because you can have a small sig or a sig close too the required size, so i see no problem

    Sorry for double posting but I agree. 30pixels up or down shouldn't be much of a big deal, but rules are rules at the moment (and I totally understand though).

    It'd be good to have a relook into signature limitations now that computers and forums have gone a but further though! I know not all computers have 20+MB speeds nowadays, but 56k usage is much lesser now.

    Even Africa's internet is on the rise:

    Yup, exactly. That's why I said that change should come soon. 35k for a sig is pretty rough for quality in a signature, and size isn't exactly cool either (in my opinion). In save for web in Photoshop, most of the sigs have to be at 60% of their quality to meet the rule (though you always tried to screw with the rule a little anyway ). Screens have also bigger resolutions nowadays and varying pixel density, so back in 2006, maybe 480x80 in a 1024x768 monitor made the cut, but 500x130 in a 1980x1080 (or higher these days) is a little too small.

    For the laughs, signature size 7 years ago Size was increased, but weight remained the same.

    I think the real issue is that larger sig sizes, since they're images, translate to bandwidth which costs $$$ for PSU. Not to mention performance reasons, though I agree what with the increase in internet speeds the sig sizes could stand to be bigger on that front.

    We will update the rules accordingly for sigs and av pics, but here are the new guidelines.

    I have modified the subscriber and member usergroups accordingly. Staff and the others I will be updating throughout the day.


    For members.

    Avatar and profile images can be 160x160 max file size 120k

    Sigs can now be 500x160 with a max size of 125k



    For subs

    Avatar and Profile images can be 240x240 with a max file size of 240k (way overkill, but oh well)

    Sigs can be 520x180 with a max size of 250k



    This is based on recommendations handed to me here and in PM's.
