    Announcement: New Signature Rules (Feedback)

    The Staff have talked about this for a while and decided on some new signature rules. It's extremely hard agreeing on sizes because everyone has different opinions (it should be smaller, bigger, whatever), but this is what we've come to agree on. These can change if there's strong community disagreement, but no promises on that.

    Here are the new sizes:

    Normal members - 460x140 @150KB
    Staff / Editors / Design Squad Members - 500x160 @200KB
    Subscribers / Pink Subs - 540x200 @250KB
    Images to show scale:


    We would like some feedback. Does this seems satisfactory to you guys?

    I think those sizes are a good improvement, when I was on the Design Squad I felt limited when making signatures for people who weren't subs but the increase in size would make any requests easier, which is always a bonus!

    Just a quick question though, if I were to have a signature in the subscriber size would I still have to put my trophy card in a spoiler?

    Sorry to disappoint, but the new size for normal members is actually a bit smaller. Here are the older rules for reference:

    Normal members - 500x160 @125kb
    Staff (including Design Squad members) - 560x200 @250kb
    Subscribers / Pink Subs - 520x180 @250kb
    PSU Editors - 560x200 @250kb

    Yes. These are the maximum sizes allowed for all images in your signature. If you're a subscriber you can't have a signature 500 pixels high then stack on a 100 pixel high trophy card, because your limit is 540 vertical pixels. Put it in a spoiler or get a thin(ner) card.

    I'm disappointed at the smaller sizes. First of all, why? You guys have never been consistent with enforcing this rule. You'll remove a large animated gif but a report to remove a signature from one of your editors that's too tall was ignored.
    Thanks to Kwes for the signature!

    Black, only new signatures have to abide by the rules.

    We wanted to emphasize the perks for subs (more are underway). Originally we wanted to add more for subs, not take away from normal members, but the signature size was already getting huge so to emphasize the difference we had to reduce the normal signature size.

    If you have suggestions then fire away. That's why this thread is here.

    Are you referring to the 30MB signature? Because that's quite different than a signature that's a little too tall.

    I already had my current signature resized. What I'm saying is that if these are the new signature sizes then it would be fair for everyone to abide by them. Otherwise, what's the point? That's why I'll make a report for a signature that's too tall (the one I recently made is what I'm referring to from a while ago).

    It's completely fair. The conditions apply to everyone, and it's community-friendly by not suddenly placing in new rules then editing out people's signatures across the site. Just make sure new signatures follow the rules.

    Though I rarely use images, I'm fine with the new rules.

    $#@!in sucks. Pretty much any other forum has way larger sizes allowed even for new people just registered except gaf.
