We have a limit on the size signatures can be. For those who forget the rules which have been in place for more than 5 years, here they are

 

  • Limit in dimensions: 250px X 700px. Here's a sample of what 250px X 700px looks likes. Your entire signature (text, images, everything) should be no bigger than this. If you're putting things in a spoiler, don't forget that the spoiler button itself takes up space (about 40px in height). 
     
  • If you put animations in your signature, please limit it to one, and keep keep it under 300kb in file-size. Think of it this way, every time someone has to load a page for the first time, they have to download all images on the page. Because of large animations, this becomes serveral megabytes of data and they quickly add up. 
     
  • Anything NSFW has to be spoilered. Even if it's not nudity, if it's something someone could be embarassed or get in trouble while at work or school, it needs to be behind a spoiler. 

 

You will get one warning from a mod if your signature breaks any of the rules. If you don't respond or fix your signature in a timely manner (as in, by the next time you come back to GDC), the entire thing will be deleted.

Yep, it's fine.

Yours is slightly over (by like 15 pixels), but nothing major. I think it's acceptable.

Does this mean all my ghosties will have to go (since each is an individual gif)?  :(

 

That being said, together they may still be under 300kb...

No, those are fine. They're very tiny in file size.

Would there be a way of having some kind of warning somewhere telling you that your sig is too big? I know there's the sample thing, but sometimes it's quite difficult to measure your sig up against it.

Yours is slightly over (around 275px). It's not too far over. If you wanted to make it fit better I'd resize the image or remove the sentence above your spoiler.

Unfortunately, no. Because it's not easy for a script to measure the height of everything in a signature. If it was just one image, then yeah that'd be easy, but writing something to check all text, images, spoilers, and warn people would be pretty difficult.

According to the standards that were in place when I made the signature, it was fine. 

 

If it gets deleted it's because Fuzz hates it when I mock him  :happy:
