SIGNATURES: Some sanity, please.

I really don't like to be nit-picky about stupid stuff like this, but lately it's been getting slightly ridiculous.

Signatures should be modest. This is a topic-oriented forum, and and for that reason we like to keep the signal-to-noise ratio as high as possible. Excessively large/long signatures are a waste of screen space, especially when they have nothing to do with the game.

A good size for a signature banner is about 500 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. Try not to make them any larger than that. Two or three lines of text in addition to a sig banner of this size is fine, too.

Multiple stacked banners and huge blocks of text are too much. I'm going to be nice and give everyone a chance to fix their sig (if necessary) before I start nagging individuals about it.

Note also that userbars are really lame. If you absolutely must crap up your signature with them, I recommend condensing them with a userbar animator or something similar to minimize the eyesore for the rest of us.

Thanks,
