Hey hey gang. Well... It was only a matter of time before this was going to happen and... Well. It's happened. ^^ I've been looking for all kinds of ways to be able to easily inform folks about our sig rules here at our cozy forum but nothing I've found so far has been suitable. That said I've implemented my own sort of "hack'n'slash" modification which should do as well as need be. Some of you may notice that there's a chunk of your sig missing. Fear not! The forum is not about to crash. Today, haha :) Essentially I've applied an overflow:hidden attribute to all our sigs so that anything that goes outside the above stated rules will simply be cut off and not visible. So please be careful about the height of your sigs.

I have seen a fair few of you who enjoy having both a graphic sig as well as text and I can appreciate the creativity there so I'd like to provide an option for everyone that will allow you both. :oooo: Our rule on sig sizes has been 500x150 pixels. We're going to change that to allow you more width NOT for graphics but for the text. So from now on the rule regarding sigs on the forum will be:

  • Maximum Graphic Signature Size: width 500 pixels x height 150 pixels
  • Total Allowed Width For Graphic Signature and Text = width 800 pixels
  • Maximum Graphic Signature File Size: 50KB
  • Maximum Avatar size: 120x120
  • Maximum Avater file size: 50KB

If you would like to place text beside your graphic sig can do it by using our Wrap BBcode which you can look at from the drop down menu called "Insert Special Item". That menu can be found only while making a post.
Example:
[wrap="left"]YOUR_IMAGE.jpg[/wrap]

Here's mine for example:
[wrap=left][url="http://sacredwiki.org"][img]http://i652.photobucket.com/albums/uu250/dmskinner/sigs/FDMSW.png[/img][/url][/wrap] 

[url="http://darkmatters.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=4808"]Clan [D.a.r.k] Captain[/url]
[url="http://darkmatters.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5012"]K a m I k a z e _ S u n d a y[/url]
[url="http://sacredwiki.org"]SacredWiki[/url]
[url="http://www.sacredwiki.org/index.php5/Sacred_2:Map_of_Ancaria"]Sacred 2 Map of Ancaria[/url]

It isn't the most elegant solution but I'm looking into a nicer which will work much better I'm hoping. Keep in mind the extra width we're offering is not for graphicsand that we're trying this out with the hopes that it will not be abused. We think this is a fantastic compromise and would hate to have to take away the extra 300 pixels. Graphics must still be no wider than 500 pixels.

Cheers all and happy sig-ing. :oooo:
