    The sig area has a pixel limitation which also extends to spoiler boxes in sigs. We implemented the sig size restriction a bit back to curtail massive wall of text sigs. Unfortunately using spoilers in sig as a workaround is not present viable.

    Serious you've known about this for a while, we talked about this in a thread once.  You were the person that suggested I put my spoilers above my signature so that it would just cut off the words below my spoiler, so you could see what was within.

    Tolvo it's not that, it's an issue with that method that means that the spoiler might glitch into an infinite spoiler-ception.. if you get what i mean.

    Check the OP's examples, you'll see what he means

    His example doesn't happen if he doesn't just put tons of spoilers inside of spoilers.

    This makes no sense to me. Hue's sig upon inspection is purposely made that long so I am not seeing the glitch. His sig runs out of real estate before you can get to the last spoiler box.

    Is his sig not showing up as a bunch of spoilers though? Thats what it is to me..

    Yours is ok though, probs cus it's smaller..

    Maybe he's trolling though.. idk

    His sig is exactly a bunch of spoilers in spoilers with one finally revealing a website. This is not a glitch, but a case of running into one's own attempts to be ostentatious.

    Hue's old signature consisted of a ton of spoilers, with a final spoiler that said "Yay!" and if you clicked it it redirected you to a Fluttershy website. Since Baal has put a limit on spoilers, it runs past the limit because there's so many in there. Hue has to take out a few spoilers for it to work again.

    I was just asking why it used to work, and no longer does.

    I'm also talking about a few other cases where links are cut off when you click the spoiler tab.

    It will expand up to the pixel limit of the sig box.

    And

    So I guess this is also why, if I don't delete the empty line between the image and text in my sig, the bottom line of my sig is cut off? Even without spoilers I'd be hitting the max size limit with that extra space?

    Yeah if something gets cut off then it's exceeding the limit. It won't do snipping for you and will show exactly what fits within the pixel boundaries.

    Serious' sig above is the best use of spoiler box to "increase" sig space. It expands almost to pixel limit and when it does it pushes his sig image out of view. When closed his sig image is in full view. That method gives ample real estate to express what you would like.
