    On other Forums there's an Option to disable Sigs altogether so you don't have to view Sigs at all .
    That doesn't really solve the issue, but it's definately better than blocking People .

    So if a guy has a large sig he doesn't deserve to have his posts seen by you? :|

    It's causing me to lag on threads he posts in, which is most threads.

    Although it's not as bad as it was before when it was four huge gifs that not only lagged a tonne but where also pretty pointless.

    I didn't like them anyway, I mostly had it there BECAUSE it was annoying people, but even I am tired of my own lag.
    Have a good day.

    The .gifs in Polywrath's and Soris' sigs aren't quite as active as the ones in Dib's sig, and don't affect me either.

    Point is, sigs can be out of hand, but even with a load of .gifs, as long as there is little activity, they're ok.

    I really am surprised mine don't seem to cause a lag issue for people here. But that is the maximum amount of things I can put in my sig without that your sig is too large message.

    Also, Tolvo and Marino (and anyone else who was annoyed by my sigs besides RenegadeCop), you could have just asked and I would have taken them down.
    kthx

    Do sigs now have a capped size? On my screen one of my quotes is shoved beneath an insible breakpoint.

    Pictures may only go up to 150 pixels, the sig space is now capped at 225 pixels.

    Yes, these 2 quotes do not contradict each other at all.

    For what it's worth, I wouldn't block anyone for their sig alone unless the content it contained was downright repulsive. For the record, I never had any crashing/slow-down issues as a result of the sigs so perhaps my easy-going attitude towards them is influenced by experiences.

    If you made a thread you couldn't even access you would probably get annoyed with a signature.

    That's an easy way to annoy someone. It's why I changed my sig because I didn't like the idea of the gif in my former signature causing lag.

    However, I haven't blocked anyone because of this yet. I considered blocking reece because I actually had to kill a page because it wouldn't respond but I didn't. I don't like the idea of blocking people on here.

    I haven't had any page crashing yet. On my laptop though I will have massive lag when people have more that 1 or 2 gifs in the sig.


    I just don't get the point of it I guess. The massive sigs that is.

    We have put in place signature rules in the CSS that limit the height of images and the height of the signature area for posts. As long as you make you signature fit within these guides than you are fine. If you would like to be nice and remove some of the animated gifs that are causing others to have issues browsing the forums than that is your choice. If the Mods or Admins have issues with anyone's signature we will PM you.

    There is no reason to argue about signatures. If anyone has an issue with someones signature size then feel free to PM a mod or admin and we can see if there is something we can do to fix the issue.

    A bit disappointing since quotes take up a locked amount of space/i can't even use a spoiler box for more space... but alright. I'll cut a quote.

    I realized some of theses sigs on this site were getting ridiculously huge, dib's for example. I made that to see just how big it could get, and simultanoiusly show other's the potential danger of huge sigs. I removed after a day because I couldn't stand the reduced browser performance. The size of it surprised me. Before Baal's Nerf a sig could be too big to fit on one screen.

    Thanks again Baal for the much needed nerf.

    My favourite part abotu rynn's sig is the quote box where the quote is also in quotation marks- so unnecessary lol!

    I knew it annoyed people, but no one ASKED for me to take them down, they simply stated that it was annoying them.

    Please on behalf of the whole forum- take your sig down. It's too large (doesn't even fit anymore) and noone wants to look at gifs in your sig. I don't understand the need...

    So yeah, so you stop burning all the bridges you have with people on here, please make your sig reasonable. Looking at your attitude towards others opinions might be an idea too.

    Dibs just drop the bunny things you got and that will be the end of this. I think people here are getting tired, if not already, of this whole sig issue in general.

    I made that lower part on purpose.
    I look at people's opinions all the time, but not one of those opinions was that my sig was in need of taking down. They only stated it was annoying, which it was, even to me.
    Otherwise, again:

    Dibsville wrote:I'm not here to get posts, I'm here because it's Dark Souls.
    Just because I post a lot doesn't mean I don't look at and respect people's opinions, in fact half of these posts are responses to other posts.

    The only problem I could see with the previous post Dibs, is that it's kinda obvious that they want you to take your sig down if they mentioned it was annoying them. Common sense says that is another way of saying "I'm not gonna say it, but I want that friggin thing down".
