    What do you mean PAK?

    EST: I think there is a way to turn off peoples signatures in your settings... Don't quote me though.

    Copcar: You may be correct that there are not MANY people still on dial up. But here we try to cater to all the members the best we can. Not just whatever the majority may be. And honestly, I personally know a few very active members on these forums whom are on dial up. maybe it's just the carnivorus plant topic that brings those out that are not actually "into" the internet I dunno... On my other forums we too have huge pictures... But, I still feel these rules help out a good number of our members.

    I wish we had bigger avatars too, but we don't pay the bills.

    It would be cool if we could get bigger avatars if we donated like 5 or 10 bucks. just a thought.

    JLAP- I'm pretty sure we're talking about saving the bandwidth of the people on slower connections (or dinosaur computers) not the bandwidth of the forums server.

    Personally I would vote for slightly larger avatars.

    Regardless of file size and connection speeds, the large sigs take up a lot of space on the screen. You get less posts per page. And its just plain irritating to see the same huge pics over and over and over in one topic if someone posts a number of times. Fancy sigs aren't the point of the forums...its not a forum to display Photoshop talent. The main function here is discussion. If you have a pic you really want someone to see in a large format, put it on a server and put a link in your sig so people can choose to look at it 20 times...or not.


    Dandy...you said "severed" instead of "served." "Severed" as in....cut off, chopped off, sliced off. I'm feeling Halloweeny so everything is looking spooky.

    Yes, bigger avatars! Since they're hosted offsite (are there any hosted by TF?), it doesn't increase bandwidth usage for the server. And aren't avatars cached by the browser anyways? So people on dial up would only have to load it once.

    Quick Question.

    Here is the rule I'm wondering about.

    Images in signatures must be no more than 55 x 270 pixels at 72dpi = 15k. Reason: Images that are very large must be downloaded repeatedly with multiple posts. Not only is it annoying, it also takes up a lot of screen space resulting in more pages per topic. Signatures can be personally expressive but we have to put a limit on it for the sake of download speed and visual aesthetics.

    My Signature photo right now is 55 x 251 pixels but only 5.210 KB but is that still the max pixels size I can have?

    Also I did not think the size of the posts made a difference to the number of pages per topic.

    thanks
