    Is there anyway to include a small picture in your signature?

    I want a 100 x 100 avatar.

    It's hard making them for here when it's 100 x 100 elsewhere. You don't even need to increase the file size...

    Yeah I figured that much...just wanted to ask.

    It would have been cool to put a wide pic of my iPods under my sig...oh well.

    The problem being it's a wide picture. It's hard to keep images in signatures within a reasonable width and file size for some viewers.

    Arn has said in past no to pictures in the sigs. Avatars wont get bigger as it will get to distracting.

    yeah, pics in sigs would probably get out of hand. not sure if I had an opinion on avatar sizes, except that's just how its been.

    I thought increasing the avatar size was brought up some time ago and was decided to keep it the same.

    Honestly, I can't stand graphics in sigs. It just throws the whole forum out of whack.

    Damn straight! I'm subscribed to Basschat.co.uk, and the sig images are annoying.

    One thing I don't like about the sigs here is the character restrictions. 6 lines is perfect, but even with my modest sig, i'm pushing the character limit.

    Actually, I like the sig character limits too. I wish there was a font size limit as well (preferably 1). :D

    Really, the only thing I don't like in regards to format is the "Edited" tag. Specifically, it's the horizontal rule that annoys me. For short posts, the horizontal rule just looks weird and out of place. Is there any chance of changing it?

    IMO, it would look better without the horizontal rule and if the entire tag was placed at the very bottom (equal with the Quote buttons).

    I like having 75x75 avatars as they're easily distinguished from the administrators' and moderators' 100x100 'tars.

    Forums that allow images in signatures are often hideous as a result.

    I really like the MR set up.

    Read again...
    ;)

    Have to agree with this. I've seen other forums where large graphics are allowed and it's just so distracting/cluttered and makes it really difficult to determine where one post finishes and another one begins. I feel the same about the use of "

    yeah but they're only taking up 'virtual' space. which is seemingly limitless. text ones aren't so bad, but image ones hurt the eyes.

    The image ones can be done successfully on a message board. The problem is enforcing image and file size.

    Actually, it would probably be a good restriction to only count posts that have been followed up by somebody. That would prevent that people like me who just post bogus get an Avatar ;-)
