Signature Size Limits.

As part of the new Heresy Online we will be introducing signature size limits.

This will be 450x150 pixels.

If you are designing yourself a signature please stay within this size and if your current signature is larger than this you will need to resize it before the limit is applied to the forum.

Thanks for your cooperation in this matter and apologies to all those that will have to adjust their current signatures.

PS. There is the ability to have a photo in your profile if you desperately want a taller image.
The maximum size of your custom image is 120 by 120 pixels or 64.0 KB (whichever is smaller). Click 'Edit Profile Picture' in User CP to access this feature.

Then make it smaller.

Just for the record, here is the section of the Heresy Online Rules regarding sigs

Da Rulz said:
Titles, Avatars, and Signatures

Lengthy signatures are not allowed. Limit signatures to 8 lines or less. One small image as long as it falls within the 450x120 size limit and a single userbar is permitted. Animated images are not allowed except for a single rolling animated userbar. 350 x 19 pixels.

The Moderators will edit and/or remove signatures that are too long or break forum policy. Should the mods decide that your signature is too big or distracting, you will be informed and given 3 days to change it. Failure to do so will result in deletion of the full signature. Although harsh this is usually a necessity to stop signatures detracting from the content of a thread.

Please refrain from unnecessary profanity in signatures. While occasional and moderate use of profanity is allowed, it doesn't need to be automatically included in every post you make.

Limited Advertising Permitted. Signatures are excluded from the advertising restrictions found in the Posting Rules; provided the site, product, service or event being advertised and the content of the advertisement complies with the rest of The Rules. If you are not sure please ask a member of staff.

No Adoptables From Other Sites. This includes dragoncave dragons and other annoying sig-dwelling monsters begging for clicks. No links to said sites either.

Moderator discretion is used in most cases. The Heresy moderators will consider every signature, title and avatar. Should they deem it excessive or inappropriate, you'll be informed and asked to make adjustments within 3 days. Failure to do so will result in the staff taking action to delete or change the offending item.

Furthermore, we have a lovely little script that automatically cuts off any sig at 200 pixels high, regardless of whether it's an image, text or both. It won't delete anything, it just won't show anything below the top 200 pixels. This leaves you room for one legal sized image and about four or five lines of regular sized text.

The size limit on images is still 150x400, the extra 50 pixels were added to the filter to allow people to have an image and text
Technically I used four words :p

But if you don't want to resize it, that's your call.
I went ahead and made a resized version for you, it's not that bad really. I can upload it if you want to see, but if you're that dead set against it, that's fine, I'll go ahead and trashcan it.
I just used microsoft office photo manager. But I think photobucket and some other image hosts have basic editing tools too

Once you've saved it and uploaded it to your own host let me know so I can delete it off my photobucket

Technically, it's 167x400, but it's only 17 pixels over, and it's at least the right proportions.

As long as it's close we're usually quite reasonable.
