We're going to prepare formal guidelines related to signatures in the near future. However, I did want to go ahead and make a request now for every member to review their signature and make an attempt to keep it to a reasonable size - as a courtesy to each other.

Here are very high-level rules of thumb:

Height: Keep the height to something equivalent to my signature (1-1.5x or less). As you can see, you can easily fit a few images and text into a signature and still keep the height reasonable.

Width: Images should be kept to a reasonable width. A quick test is to simply look at the top of the site while viewing your own profile. If the gap between the logo (left corner) and the banner (middle) is very much, one or more images in your signature are too large. Typically, images of about 400 pixels wide or less work best.

Thanks for helping to keep our "home" clean! wink.gif

Yes, your signature is a good example of one needing some updates. tongue.gif

The Calico banner is the ideal width, so the Quinn one would be better if it was resized to that size.

Also, the height could be reduced by about 40-50%. For example, let some of your text be on the same line instead of adding line breaks for everything (e.g., players you collect).

When posts are getting lost in between the signatures, the signatures have gotten too large. As I said in my initial post, it's really a matter of common courtesy as much as anything. wink.gif

Beyond that, there are plenty of other things that set TCC apart from other sites. wink.gif

The height looks just fine.

If you look at the top of the site, you're likely seeing a gap between the logo and banner at the moment. To remove that gap, it would be better if your banner was closer to 400 pixels wide. wink.gif

Again, I have no intention of getting out a ruler and measuring everyone's signature and spending a bunch of time enforcing strict rules about signature size. I'm simply asking everyone to understand that your signature does affect how others view topics. Please just keep that in mind and make adjustments if you can. wink.gif

For the record, I've also received a number of PMs over time that indicated that members thought the site was "too busy" with images, etc. in the signatures. Point is that we just have to find a reasonable point in the middle. wink.gif
