    There seems to be a very common mistake on people's signatures.

    Do NOT use font size > 2.

    It says that in the rules. Verbatim. Section 5. Stop asking me why I gave you a warning and re-read the sig rules instead.

    Thanks. :cow04:

    Thanks for the reminder JazzC. For those of us who rented our sig space lets make sure there compliant.
    Its easy to forget and just copy/paste what they sent you. So giving it a check is a must. :)

    Is this correct? "Do not use a font size larger than 2" , this is what I found. So we can use 2, just no bigger?

    Always thought 2 > 2 is not true

    This post would have been a lot better than just giving warnings IMHO.

    Anyway, I'm changing the signature size asap.

    I see that someone who doesn't lose the tiniest opportunity to expose other members' breaking of the rules, was quite upset by me giving him a warning just like everybody else who got one for the same sig rule violation. Too bad your post got removed, would have been interesting to find out the why you minded.

    Not sure if that post is about me, but I was just giving my opinion, nothing personal.

    How could it be about you when your post was NOT removed? :)

    I didn't mind that much lol and I certainly wasn't upset.
    It just surprised me, when there seem to more important issues that need to be addressed.

    That is why i don't have a signature! Too many of them and i don't concentrate when reading a guide- always looking at them signatures :/ well my signature is for hire or sale.

    Thank you Wiz,
    I don't really understand why the post in question was so contentious, as it was clearly a joke.

    I inadvertently broke the rules and received a warning, I don't have a problem with that, but it would have been nice to receive a 48 grace period before this was enforced.

    Anyway, no hard feelings towards anybody, seriously.

    Jazz,

    When I woke up this morning I noticed I had to re-accept the rule list but since I was too tired I skipped them like when I first joined (it's a really long list to read).

    My question is, is there a post on the forum that is an exact duplicate of that list? Because I've searched the lounge, I've searched BH SEO forums, and I can NOT find that same exact rule list anywhere.

    I'd rather print it out and read a segment each time (when I do something murky) then try and memorize the whole list in 1 read.


    Thank you.
