    Hi,
    I would like to suggest a new addition to BHW rules about signatures.

    We see some members have excessively large banners in their signature. I too had one but it was removed by a mod who told me to use a 'reasonably' sized banner which I did :) But there are still a few with big ass banners lol. I won't call them out but if some mod/admin wants to take a look, sure.

    The rule about signature banner is not very definitive i.e.

    And this sticky thread also states it but its still not clear enough:

    I suggest the max. size be 728 x 90 which is the standard dimensions we see for banners.

    Just my 2 cents. :)

    PS: I do report when I see someone with a big ass signature but having a definite rules about that would help more than anything.

    I disagree. 600x1200 is a good max size.

    So you're saying an image as big as this is a good size for signature?

    Very nice :rolleyes:

    I think 100 x 10 is the best.

    I also agree with BK on this. I personally have always used 728x90 all the time. It would be really great is people can follow a standard for banners as its getting really messy seeing banners of various sizes.

    Also if you cannot put a constructive suggestion in this thread, then please dont post. I think that this thread is pretty serious matter.

    By useless posts I mean the ones like

    Which clearly proves he has no idea of what we are talking about and/or increasing post count. I will make sure to give you some negative love if you do it. :D

    there is an exact size limit defined, it's just not listed in a very good location :p

    when you go to edit your signature, under the signature box there's an option to upload an image from your computer.

    Code:
    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).
    
    most people just end up linking an offsite image and likely never even scroll down far enough to see this rule.

    the maximum height limit that we're currently enforcing is 100 pixels.

    i do agree that this should be stated explicitly in the main rules where it's more visible to everyone, so there's no confusion over it.

    +1 for this BK .

    728 x 90 is the best and standard banner seen everywhere .
