Hi everyone (Jason in particular),
being more and more annoyed by the voluminous images and signatures appearing in the last few weeks along with other spam in the brickfilms forums I think we need clear size limits for signatures/images in these forums.
I post this, because today I realized that Bob Page’s signature is 274kB, which more than I would allow for a average website! I think we should stick to avatars of max 5kB, which can still sum up to quite a few kB in longer topics but put a clear size (points by points AND filesize) limit on banners in signatures or disable pictures in signatures at all, which I would prefer due to better readability.
Please comment on this. I think it time to take some action to keep this board a usefull source to all brickfilmers.

*Goes to check filesize on his avatar*
It’s only about 3 k!
Comeon people, my pic looks fine! And its only 3 k!
Get with the fad, here!

the problem seems to me the signature, not the avatar…
Even if you have a limit of 100 chars for it, you can theorically use a link to a bitmap image several mb big.
So let’s start to speak about images in signature!

I think 10 KB is a good size limit for signatures. I also do not want to have to load huge sigs.
Everyone, please limit your signature size, or I will disable images in signatures.

wait so how many chars are allowed for sigs, it still says 100, or did u not up it… i would like it to be uped to about 200 chars, cuz everything i wana add is too big for 100 usually levelin at about 150-170April 10, 2003 at 7:56 pm #433
Ok, ok. I will make a new banner just for you, Brickbrock. But please stop crying!

I don’t see what’s so wrong…it pretty much downloads instantly…Far as I’m concerned, it’s pixel size rather than kb size that bugs me in sigs..April 11, 2003 at 2:19 am #468

And you have Broadband, no?

I have broadband and it does download quickly. The problem I face is I’m usually using a somewhat unpowerful laptop and that animated gif just kills my video. It’s easy to tell when there’s a Bob Page post in a thread because my screen scrolls verrryy slowwwlyApril 11, 2003 at 2:58 am #475
I like my signature, I have yet to see another one like it on the internet.
If I am making a short post without a lot of data, I normaly leave it off.
