After careful consideration, we have decided that with Forums 2.0 we'll only be allowing signatures which have a maximum size of 600x100. You can use signatures bigger than this, however they will be automatically clipped to these dimensions.

This is in an effort to make the forums cleaner and more usable, and also to help prevent people from just turning signatures off completely.

I, with staff, have determined this to be the perfect size for the new forum layout. I'm sure most of you will agree when you see it.

We are giving you this prior notice, so when purchasing signatures on the forums, you can receive a 600x100 version at the same time for later use.

We've decided that at this smaller size, we will still allow flash, (but usually advise against it because it looks tacky)

Thanks.

600*100 is pretty stupid tbh... 500*150 or even 450*150 would be better than that

joe is more concerned with height than width. the width probably doesnt matter in his agenda

I'm sure most of us are okay with the width but the height of 100 is ridiculous?! -_-

ive never made a sig with 100pixel height
its always either 125,150,175

100 height is a bit small, hopefully this will be amended to some extent, or at least hopefully the scaling with be good enough for it not to matter

edit

600x100_zpsd0ffaae8.png

renders at this height will just look indiscernible not to mention if it changes the height of a sig, it will probably ruin the text

These proportions will make it very hard to make good looking graphical signatures imo.

LOL awesome example Carol

Chedburn, this will ruin everything, it may tidy things up but it will make things looky ugly as hell And you just cannot make a tag with a 100px length. Honestly a 600x200 px max would be the best.

This.


This is going to kill the gfx forum. If this place dies any more I am going to throw in the towel.
Why would you want to make the forums uglier and make it less fun for a big chunk of people that play the game and pay yout wages.

Please, Ched, google for common forum signature sizes and you will see that 600 by 100 is NEVER used. The proportions are just not correct.

What is 50 pixels really per sig? It will make sigs look horrible, I don't know of any other site that has such small height forum sigs.

Keep height as 150px, reduce it from 200 if you wish. But the original 150px was just fine.

138px is the lowest height size I have used in a tag and that too with great difficulty .. This new rule
600px v 100px is really gonna screw up composition

I'll conform with my designs... but not until 2.0 is out.

I don't like it, but we can't always get what we want.

Chedburn and staff clearly have no idea... why change something that you have no expertee's in, like a lot of people going against it. It just shows. Don't try and change something when you don't have a clue about it

I agree it's really going to change how to make a sig for sigmakers. I agree 135-150px height looks much better for sig purposes, especially when the majority of sigs are made in a 1:2 or 2:3 ratio. However, we all know when Ched makes his mind up, he's not looking for the public's opinion. So, here's my suggestion on how to ease into the transition in your design time. Make it with the idea you were making a divider. In essence, that's what they're going to be, banner dividers. This change ends the days of "signatures" on torn. If you've ever made dividers, you should have an easier time than others. A lot of sig makers aspire to one day actually make some money with their hobby photoshop skills. This will help you along by challenging you, as a 100px height banner is very common on websites. So if you do ever want to make some real money at your photoshop, really hone this 100px skill set.
