i need to know how to make the siggy

Recommended Posts

The sigs in this thread break the forum size rules:

 

Maximum 640 width, 80 height for a sig, and

Maximum 90 width, 90 height for an avatar.

 

The above figures also cover any text in there if I understand Roja's post correctly, so adding a 640x80 image and 12 lines of text is breaking the rules too.

 

Ref:

Rules as of April 17, 2005

25. Signatures & Avatars

Stay away from flashy, hectic and annoying pictures, especially when animated.

Your avatar must be no bigger than 90 pixels by 90 pixels in size and no larger than 50 KB.

Keep signatures limited to any combination of text and images that doesn't exceed 80 pixels of height and 640 pixels of length. Signatures must be no larger than 50 KB.

What can and cannot be included in signatures and images follows the same rules and regulations as anything else posted in these forums.

300x80 pixels for your image, within the 640x80 limit. 53.33 kB (54605 bytes) is too big.

 

"In-Game Names: LiquiD & Tiroth - PM me on Tiroth first, if I am not online I will probs be on LiquiD."

Underneath the allowed 80 pixel limit for image and text=broken rule

 

For the others:

Post 1: Images are 122px in height for the animation and 100px in height for the static image, both too high, and both animations sizes are (37.22 KB (38109 bytes)+24 KB (24572 bytes))=62681 bytes (61.21KB), too large.

Post 2: Image is 100px in height and 60.07 kB (61512 bytes), both too high.

:dry:

any combination of text and images that doesn't exceed 80 pixels of height and 640 pixels of length. Signatures must be no larger than 50 KB.

Line 1: The size differential is nothing? An extra second on a modem per picture means people could stop visiting the forums due to sluggishness, hence the bandwidth restrictions.

 

Why should a mod edit your picture?

Mods *do* remove images when they are brought to their attention for breaking the rules. Trust me :wub:

 

It would be a lot less than the maximum 50KB if people stopped saving pics as PNG images and used JPEG instead - my sigs are created on the fly as JPEG, containing background images and clear, legible text.

 

A rule is a rule, Roja was flexible enough to say 50KB maximum. Where is your upper limit to what is considered by you as breaking that rule? 60KB? 120KB? 10MB? 4GB? 200TB? 64PB?

 

Ooh ooh I want a Cray 2 so I can see a forum sig :omg:

There's 4 of us, thousands of you. Eventually we will get to it.

 

Those measly 3kb add up when everybody else has the same attitude as you. :wub:

I never said a rule wasnt a rule, I was just simply saying.. And I didnt make this sig, and I do put ALL of my images in Jpeg OR .psd .. And if you can find a image that is 4gb then you deserve a round of appluse.

Yesh I understand that.. I was just saying, nothing more.

 

#edit - Funny, why cant we see the size or anything of your image LabR? And no offence, but if you spend the time to check peoples sigs to make sure there not breaking the rules, I find that somewhat lame..

Oh and as for 4GB images, that is not as uncommon as you may think... what about the map of the entire world in google maps? or the satellite images of deep space?

No thanks, I will stick to IE (BT Version) And Paint auto-saves in bitmap.. Making files even bigger :evilgrin:

 

And yeah I know some pics are 4gb+ but it's not seen every day.

 

Anyways enough of this.. If you want to make siggys, look at Roja's thread about free Art Programs, there are good ones in there you can use.

 

#edit - Which is found Here.

Yes, they really have been cracking down lately, as I have noticed more "Rule #25" linked signatures than ever before.

 

Liquid's signature (and sig-making) is sweeeet :D:P
