Signatures...

In my opinion, there needs to be a reformat to the signature restrictions. In my profile, I was attempting to add more bands to the growing list in my signature (which is all in size 1). Upon trying to save, I got the standard "Must be under 500 characters" message. Ok, I deleted the lyrics from my profile along with the "Iced Earth - Dante's Inferno" line. Try to save again after reformatting the rest. Still tells me must be under 500 characters.

My problem is this: With my profile in size 1, it is shorter than almost any of the other profiles on here, especially some of the ones with pictures, which take up almost a quarter of my screen (i.e. CrazyWeasel, SpYder craZy). Could the signatures be reformatted to take size of characters into account? 'Cause this is extremely gay.

EDIT: Yes, the lyrics would still be deleted so the only thing left would be "Greatest Bands" and down.

^^Precisely what I'm talking about. Yours is about half that of some people, yet we cannot change anything.

I think he wants to make it smaller, but he can't, cuz it's over the character limit.

Yes. Take out all the lyrics and that one line, then just keep size 1 font. Characters are supposed to take into account size and color.

Yes coding is included as part of the limit. THAT'S where the problem lies.
If they could change it to ignore coding in the 500 charcater limit, that would be great. Down side to it: More images in sigs.

But increasing the limt to 750 characters should be good enough to allow a fair bit of coding as well as the text.

The biggest change to sigs is a filter of somesort to limit the size of the banners. Some, like kingfiki's, force people to side scroll to read an entire msg. very annoying.

I would have deleted everything but the bands already but, even deleting all that, it still says it's over 500 characters so it will not allow me to save.

what resolution do you guys run your computers at? full window! 640x468? 800x600! Put your screen resolution on 1024x768. Or if you have a scroll mouse, hold down CTRL + scroll up and down to make stuff smaller or bigger.

I like 1024x768, but I only have a 14 inch monitor. That makes it WAY to small to see. I can't affored a fancy-shmancy 60" flat plasma dealie.

1600x1200 is perfect. You need a vid card and monitor that can handle it though
