I'm seeing a bunch of big, girthy...signatures.

Not gonna call anyone out, but when I see a sig bigger than the default replybox size, it makes me weep.

I think getting people to voluntarily calm their girthy sigs doesn't normally work, so...

uh, @teebling, what do you think, milord?

You can opt out from displaying signature in settings, if you want. :smile:

  max-height: 64px;
}
.bpostbody .signature img {
    max-height: 64px;
}

Would be cool to deactivate Signatures for a specific user, so I could turn off every big Signature I do not like :D

I love the comeback of sigs nonetheless. I remember back in the days I would sit in photoshop for hours to make fine looking sigs and banners to my forums

Haha yes, what a throwback! Your current sig is a perfect example

I don't meant to sound rude..but it lowkey sounds like you're tattling on the rest of the class..like..who cares what size a signature is? it's the Internet, if you don't like it, that's too bad. Now, a Wallpaper sig..that would be terrible. However, these "big signatures" aren't so big that you can't scroll through a topic just like any other.

so...I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish. Let people express and show off what they like in their Forum signatures.

Some are a bit big, I can think of a few.

There's a reason why I made mine a lot smaller than the original size :')

I dont care. Always something to complain about.
Back seat moderation can go though.

It's annoying. I don't get upset about it, but it's annoying.

Listen guys I haven't put any restrictions in so far because I thought it wasn't necessary and that people here were mature enough to know not to do stuff like this - but if you're going to be annoying and make your sigs massive on purpose to troll people here who have complained then I'll just fucking delete them, end of.

If you have a big sig, resize your images or I'll do it for you (by deleting them).

Thought this wouldn't be necessary but the way people are responding to this thread is kind of pissing me off.

I actually like Escalotes' original Orc bartender sig, but that's about the largest I find appropriate, imo.

I have nothing fancy to add here, but if you've never played Binary Domain, you should.

Duly noted, and fixed.

@Jon Bloodspray Believe it or not I actually cut out over half the image to make it more forum-appropriate!

I can understand that signatures are a great place to get creative. But some of the signatures are just annoying and also hurt the site itself. For example we have an active community member that has an image in the signature that is crazy large (dimensions: 3,510px × 1,272px; file-size: 320.5 KB) Even though it is scaled down by the css-rule in the image-tag, it takes up most of the space inside the viewport. If all users would have such an image in their signature the site becomes heavy for people with slow internet-speeds or browsing with an mobile-device.

Like in all growing communities, there is some point where something like public available rules or guidelines are needed. Most of the forums from the time vanilla was "fresh" had such rules, like signatures are not allowed to be larger then 3-5 rows of text (at default size) or max 100px in height.

Frantically opens paint to check dimensions

Edit: I scoured the forum and found who you were referring to. TBH the sig in question isn't close to obnoxious on desktop. Mobile may be a different question.

320kb is absurd for a signature.

If I may throw in my own opinion, I have always thought signatures have been annoying, and that they just make the topic board look cluttered and ugly. Maybe I'm a bit cynical, but to me the signatures just feels completely unrelated to anything.

Luckily, there is an option to turn them off here, which has been all good for me.
