Create Transaction


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
