    These are the rules as we have them posted guys. The size of the signature image is actually the 1 thing that kept the new revised rules from comming out a long time ago. We kinda sped up the process of getting them out because of a few recent topics... If it wasn't for that, who knows.. maybe we would have ended up agreeing on a larger image... We have noted that you're not nessasaraly too happy with the smaller signature images, would like larger avatars, and also asking if the signature image can be the same height but all the way across the board. (We actually disscussed that in the mod forum, but with a larger image, people would want larger image file sizes... It soon turns into a never ending process (then larger image file sizes, larger pixel sizes etc) ). If something changes you all will know.

    And before you know it, the Reds are in your home making a ham sandwich!

    You know I'm just playin'. Just having a little bit of fun.

    At the end of the day, if you gotta shrink your sig, then you gotta shrink your sig. And life will go on.

    My suggestion to people who want to see things a certain way, remember to keep it civil. Say your bit, and if the answers is no, then the answer is no.

    Andrew, I hope you don't take my joking or the questions that have arrisen as criticism. I think folks just want a little clarity.

    And then they want your car.
    And next thing you know they're out with your daughter at all hours.
    One day you come home and there they are on the couch watching payperview. PAY PER VIEW, in YOUR household! Equal share for all? Yeah, your share is the TV bill!

    Freakin' commies.

    As a side note.. those of us (yes me too!!! I use 1680 x 1050 ) Lower your resolution... See what stuff looks like at 800x600 or somewhere in between your size and 800x600. Sometimes we forget what we see... Isn't what others see. Actually... If you use 1680x1050 or something simular.. just click here to see what your screen would look like at 800x600. (make sure if you can expand the image, you do so... Windows XP and some others scale it down....)
    And yes EST, you made me cry TWICE already durring this.

    For me it's not the download time that bothers me... I care more about information density. It bothers me to have all that useless information on the screen. When you scan down a page and realize only 20% of what you scanned over was actual fresh content, that's a huge problem. A forum is about information. That's its entire purpose. So why would we want to fill it with repetitive/redundant and totally skippable crap? Even a cool signature (and there are very few) gets looked at maybe three times, and after that it's paid no attention at all. All it does then is dilute the page's value (and thus the forum's value if every page is afflicted).

    Just because a functionality can be used doesn't mean it should be used. See myspace for great examples of what using functionalities for the sake of using them leads to.

    So, the stricter the better, I say. In my web design years I've learned one seemingly universal truth which I'll never understand. If people have the power to make something hideous and unmanagable, they most certainly will (again, see myspace).
