Forum Restrictions: Sigs/avatarsSignature/Avatar Restrictions
Like anything in life, it's possible to have too much of a good thing. To keep things neat and tidy, we've implemented some restrictions on signature size, and the content which you're allowed to post. Please keep in mind that signatures and custom icons are privileges, not rights.
- 1. By default the system will not display a signature that is larger than 200 pixels high by 700 pixels wide. If you'd like your entire signature to show up, it must fall within these dimensions. Signatures can not contain music, or flash animations. (see example below)
- 2. The maximum allowable signature size is 200 kilobytes. Please note that this size is the total size allowed. If you multiple images in your signature, the sum of all their sizes must be 200 kilobytes or less. You can find out how large your images are by right clicking them in the browser and choosing "Properties" the size is shown in "kb".
- 3. Custom icons may be no larger than 100 pixels by 100 pixels and no more than 25 kilobytes.
- 4. Keep it clean! Just like all the other content on these forums, your signature and custom icon must be suitable for people of all ages. Obscenities in any form, censored or otherwise are not permitted. Excessive flashing or other obnoxious distracting animation is also a no-no. Additionally, images that are suggestive or do not show all persons properly clothed may be considered inappropriate.
- 5. If you have any questions about your current or future avatar/signature, feel free to send a PM to the "Officer" group. Also if you want to report an avatar/signature that concerns you, again feel free send a PM to the "Officer" group.
The officer core has increasingly noticed the....bounciness in avatars of general members. While in most circumstances we'd like to maintain freedom of expression, because a vast majority of our membership core are Workers, and view forums at work in the spare minute, this can be ackward, to say the least, if a co-worker or (god forbid) a boss walks by.Signatures
We've also noticed an increase in the size of a signature, some of which take longer to load and/or take up the majority of the screen. This distracts from the authors post and can be visually unappealing.
Please also note the use of NSFW (Not Suitable For Work) forum for people to post as much risque content as there heart desires.
If you have any concerns/comments/suggestions/questions, please PM the officer group.
