A note about signatures
Lately, I've noticed a lot of people with huge images in their signatures. Please be aware there are still a lot of people using slower connections and loading a thread with all these large signatures takes ages for them. So please take that into consideration when creating a signature picture (sig-pic).Size
Please consider the height of your sig-pic. If your sig-pic consistently takes up more vertical space than your message, you can be pretty sure it's waaaaay too big. A good sig-pic is no higher than, say, 6 lines of text. The width isn't all too important but if you keep it below 750 pixels wide, then nobody will have to scroll horizontally. Not everybody is running @ 1280x1024 or higher resolutions.Animated sigs
Sure, that animated gif in your signature was funny the first time we saw it, but it got really irritating really fast. So please think twice when using an animated gif in your signature. It is allowed, but most people hate them...Linking to websites
allowed for your sig-pic to contain an address to another website, or to link to something. Because then your signature would be a banner and that's something that's not allowed. If you would like to include a link to your website, please use a text link. If you really want a banner, you can buy banner space at the top of the page.Signature Contents
Do not use your signature for anything else but its intended purpose: to tell a little bit about yourself or show your car. Signatures that have nothing to do with you or your Fiero are not allowed.TextDo not use offensive text
(or offensive images for that matter) in your signature. If you fail to comply, your posting rights will be revoked immediately and a ban from this forum may follow. Also, listing every single mod you have done to your car is totally unnecessary. If you do want to list your mods, please be aware there's a tag to make your text smaller.
Also, no "rate me" texts in your signature. People will rate you when they think there is a reason to. Not because you ask for it in your signature.When to use your signature
It's completely unnecessary to include your signature in every single message you post in the same thread. Even though your sig-pic will only be loaded once (and then cached by your browser), it does mean people have to do a lot of unnecessary scrolling.
