Default Sigs

NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS As some members are still not complying with my repeated requests to reduce their sigs to the maximum fives required by rule four, I've decided to ask once more to all of you to check your sigs, & adjust as necessary, no need to cut things out, just make the lines longer, it'll take less than a minute, just click "user cp" at the top of every page, then "edit signature", this may seem trivial, but admin agree that rules should be stuck to.
Reluctance to do so, could result in a few days ban, if the adjusting takes overlong, I have noted those who have six lines & more.

Default Re: Sigs

just because it makes the place look untidy thats all...

and David (the admin) hasn't been willing to budge at al on this.

so text sigs only... no more than five lines (including any lines that overflow on a reasonable resolution).

If you use 800x600 as your rule of thumb when setting up your sig then it will help.
Then when it appears in higher resolutions it flattens out to longer lines horizontally.

As Seti said ( I know my sig isnt a problem) But, the diff screen res's change the atual length. So really.. This is kinda uninforable. (sp?)

Default Re: Sigs

You also have to check where the line starts in some sigs.
Some are deliberate. Those are the ones that need to be addressed.
I would suggest giving the member a time limit to handle it themselves. Just make a note of the member in note pad and minimise it. Keep checking back on the list.
When the time exspires then do what has to be done. I've edited a few in the past and have also got members to take care of it themselves. I guess as you have noticed, beating them over the head don't always work.

Default Re: Sigs

Maurice, why do you ALWAYS type in bold?? Is it really THAT necessary?? If you bold the entire paragraph, then that makes the bolding pretty useless doesnt it?

and if it is soo important, why don't you just put that in your sig to let everyone know?
