Forum Signature Policy


  • If no images are used, Signatures may be no more than five lines of text.
  • Signatures are permitted a simple image.
  • Images uploaded can be animated.
  • Maximum file size of the image can be 250KB.
  • Maximum height of an image allowed: 200 pixels.
  • Maximum width of an image allowed: 650 pixels.
  • Most BB Code is disabled in signatures.
    • Permitted BB Codes that can be used in signatures:

align, color, URL's/link, table, spoiler, quote.

  • Note that the usage of the Quote BB Code is three lines of text.
    • You're better off copy pasting and linking to the source material.

  • The maximum characters of text allowed in signatures is 2,000. This includes BBCode.



Signatures with a signature image:
  • If your signature has an image of 51 to 100 pixels tall...
    • You are permitted to have up to two lines of text above, below, or around the image.

  • If your signature has an image of 1 to 50 pixels tall...
    • You are permitted to have up to four lines of text above, below, or around the image.

  • If you do not use an image in your signature...
    • You are permitted to use all five lines for text input.





  • Additionally, if you wish to empower the usage of the table BBCode tag... you're welcome to use two columns, with one row. Then, put the image into one of the cells and the text of your signature into the other cell. See the demo below.


If you use a table, with text on the left, and an image on the right (or the opposite way around), you may use up to five lines of text and the image in the other column.


With your signature picture on the left side, you would use something like this....
Code:
[table="width: 100%, align: center"]
[tr]
    [td] [sigpic][/sigpic] [/td]
    [td] some awesome text here. [/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
With your signature picture on the right side, you would use something like this....
Code:
[table="width: 100%, align: center"]
[tr]
    [td] some awesome text here. [/td]
    [td] [sigpic][/sigpic] [/td]
[/tr]
[/table]
The width: 100% and align: center, will 1) make the table 100% wide, and 2) align the signature to the middle of the signature window. If you wish to make the signature width size smaller, set the percent to px. For example, 500px.
