View Full Version : Why can I scroll through my sig?

I know my sig and some others I've seen are apparently too long so you have to scroll through them. IMO, that slightly defeats the purpose of having a sig. What changed? And why?

it's good, now we don't have to see those stupid ******* sigs where people make them way to big.

That's the reason there's a cut off point though. IMO we shouldn't be allowed to have one too big. I don't think scrolling is the answer though, who in the world is going to scroll through someone's sig? It's supposed to be there at a glance.

Yours is pretty much there without needing to scroll down.
Maybe just change the font size on something 'less important' and you'll be golden.

The point ur making about some others having huge sigs:
If the site isn't charging extra for it, and someone wants to use it....wgaf?
(I will scroll through a sig if it is interesting enuff; if not, no skin off anyone's nose just cause it is there)

Ah, I stand corrected

Well, another thing is so many people have their sigs stretched to the max limit, now every single person that has their sig that way now has a scroll bar.

Because members have not been following rules and posting too large signature images. No way around it except to remedy it this way.

im sure you can make it so if they post to large a pic you can redirect them to a page letting them know. you can do it with avatars.

So why aren't there parameters that won't let you post a sig that's too large?

You can post pictures in your sig from external sites. There isn't really a way to check the size of an external picture because you could always change the picture and still have the same URL. i.e. post up a pic that's 200x200 so it registers as being fine for the size and then editing the picture to be 2000x2000.

Surely nobody here would bypass stuff in that manner! :eyebrow:

Doubt anyone would go to that extent but figured I would provide an example as to why that wouldn't work well. Honestly the best way of preventing huge sigs is just have the mods edit it out. I'm not a huge fan of the scrolling because it does make navigating a bit of a pain.

Because you guys are ******* retarded and have to ruin everything and then ***** about everything being changed or more rules being implemented. Nobody wants to see your 6,543px by 9,673px wide signature banner.

Those large images are from image links or images linked from another source, so we can't control the size of those unfortunately.

We can either disallow images in signatures or members will have to get use to playing by the rules, or just disable signatures in your profiles.

bump....
is still a pitbum to get stuck on each sig with the scroll, on both phone and touchpad. the way it makes me fondle either would lead others to believe i'm looking for the e-spot. any way to make the quote boxes narrower? that might make a difference in a few sigs. i went insane trying to scroll through catmans classified bumps.
