Yes, horizontal scrolling is a pain. Can we amend the rule so that an image in a sig must not cause scrolling even on a 800x600 screen?
What he said...^^
6 days later and still scrolling across the screen. When is something going to be done about this? Not everyone has a bloody 17 inch monitor.
I don't think mines too long
We can only deal with what we see. Please tell us some that you are having troubles with and we'll attempt to find a resolution.
I did message a moderator a few weeks ago and heard nothing so I did say something about it. It is a pain in the rear end to have to scroll back and forth, and these images are totally unnecessary. Alink would be good enough. Not all are a pain, but the longer ones are totally annoying. Thank you.
If it suits you, would you mind PM'ing me the moderator you contacted as well as some of the images you are having troubles with. If you do this, I'll chase it up for you.
Webslave, further to Igor's comments above, go have a Capt. Cook @ the Democracy thread in the lounge. I was very interested in reading the posts in this thread, but by the time I was halfway thru I totally lost interest coz of having to scroll left & right all the time!! As Igor pointed out, not all of us have 17" monitors. It would be good if something could be done about this problem; I'm sure that Igor & I aren't the only ones who find this vexing.
Sure, I'll go have a look now. As a convinience (I run in high res, so it makes it easier coz I never have to scroll almost) would you mind also PM'ing me the names of the users whom you are having troubles with the sig sizes of?
I have found that I don't have any problems with images in sigs of excessive size when viewing with lynx.
The Management has decided that, as of 1st February 2004, images in signatures should be no higher than 75 pixels and the file size should be no more than 12kb. There is no restriction on width.
Can we get this enforced, some are getting a bit big and making it slow for thoes who can only get dial-up due to Tel$tra's crappy phone lines.
I dont mind large images in sigs.

I'd like to find out if anyone thinks this is too big in filesize for the general public (and not just one perticular admin).
Well It looks good. It shold be acceptable since it's not too tall.
Image is 41.7kb. Over three times the max allowed size.
The issue that has been raised regarding my image is file size, not height or width.
I've made a test one with a Z3 desto instead of an A class one, which turns out to be 17kb...
Hoping that is more acceptable.
Nexas, it looks good, but, I had read all the text before it came up. Left we waiting to see what it was.
Yay! I'm allowed to use the Z3 one, although the A class one looked way better, the 41kb was too much, but James says the 17kb Z3 one is acceptable
Considering the advances that have been made with computers and internet in this country since the last post was made, should the limits for banners be increased? Maybe not even image sinze but atleast just file size? I have personally found the limits very restrictive when it comes to making a good banner.
Of the 74% (15.3 million people) of our population connected to the internet, only 30.2% (4,700,200 people, or 22.8% of the entire population) has a broadband connection.
So while technological advances may have been made, they haven't been adopted with that much interest here.
does that figure includeother high speed services like Cable?
