The Moderating team has amended rule 2.4 - Signatures and Avatars to allow for images totalling up to 700 x 300 pixels, and up to 750kb. We hope this will provide our users with more flexibility when creating their signatures. Please note that the restrictions on total image and line count remain unchanged, only the image dimension and file size restrictions have been relaxed. The rule now reads as follows (changes in red):
2.4 - Signatures and AvatarsForum Signature Limits are 700 pixels wide by 300 pixels high by 750Kb file size. There is a 10 image limit to a signature, but the combined dimensions/file size of all the images may not exceed 700 x 300 pixels x 750Kb. Avatar limits are 100 pixels wide by 100 pixels high, by 100Kb file size. Images in hide tags are still subject to our size restrictions. For signatures with images (regardless of size or how many) there will be a limit of 4 lines of text or 10 lines of text if you put them inside a hide tag. Each use of quote tags counts as one line of text in addition to the number of lines being quoted. In the case of signatures without images, please exercise common sense with the amount used. Excessive text in an imageless signature and other excessive or disruptive images or text will be removed at a moderator's discretion.We do not permit racial or sexual references/proclamations in signatures or avatars. This includes images and text. Religious references are allowable in signatures/display names/profiles so long as the reference is not negative or bashing other groups. Racial and sexual orientation content is permitted in the About Me section of profiles only, as long as the content is not bashing another race/sexual orientation. All religious, racial, and sexual orientation references are subject to removal at a moderator's discretion if abuse is suspected and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.All other Tip.it Forum Rules apply in signatures, avatars and profiles (including the About Me section). However, the board Administrators reserve the right for final authorization and may approve, request you to change, or outright remove any image or text regardless of size, especially if it's deemed inappropriate.
Note that anyone who does not wish to view signatures on our forums can disable them under Account Settings>Ignore Preferences.
Please feel free to provide any feedback you have on this change.
