Signature Rules
We understand how signatures are a great way to express yourself, but some signatures have been getting out of hand. In order to make the forums more appealing for everyone in the community, we have decided to implement some new sig rules:

* You are only allowed a maximum of 1 image and 4 lines of text in your sig.
* The dimension of the image must not exceed 500w x 150h pixels.
* Image size should be kept under 100kb.
* You must have at least 50 posts before putting an image into your signature.


Members may have up to 5 smilies and one image once they're able to have pictures..... if the picture breaks the rules, it will be removed. If you put up an illegal sig more than once, you will be temp banned. We'll keep track.

As far as spoiler tags go, they count as a line of text only as long as there is only text in there. Any images must follow the same rules. Thanks you for your continued cooperation.

This should allow everyone enough space to be creative, yet at the same time keep things clean and tidy for others.

Some of these rules will be enforced automatically. Others will be enforced by the moderators. Repeat offenders will receive warnings, but moderators will be more lax until people have had enough time to transition.

Oh and we're still tweaking the settings, so if you see any problems with sigs not showing even when they are within our guidelines, let us know.

*Note* Dragons do count as an image. It is also possible to have a signature image and under 50 posts, under certain conditions.

PLEASE NOTE - The forums have a mod installed that only displays a signature once per page. If your posts show up multiple times on the same page, then only your first post will show the signature. This is not an error or bug.

Adding a Signature:
Go to your User CP and under the Settings & Controls there are several options. Select Edit Signature. The text box that opens is exactly like the normal reply window. Any BB Code can be entered here, just as with usual posts, provided it follows the Signature Rules above. Please see the BB Code section above for information about hosting images.

Adding an Avatar:
An avatar is a small image below or next to your username that appears on all posts. Avatars are limited to 100x100 pixels and/or 19.5kb, whichever is smaller. To upload an avatar, go to your User CP, under Settings & Controls select Edit Avatar. You can choose to link an avatar from another site (please remember to ask permission before linking to someone else's site first) or upload the image from your computer.

Viewing Signatures and Avatars:
Signatures and Avatars are viewable by default for all visitors (with the exception noted above for signatures displaying only once per page). If you do not wish to view other people's signatures or avatars, you can turn them off in the User CP. Under Settings & Controls, select Edit Options and scroll down to Thread Display Options. Uncheck Show Signatures, Show Avatars and/or Show Images to have these items hidden when you read the forums. Unchecking Show Images means that you will not see any images in posts at all.

seems that "attaching your signature" is off by default, so If you wanna show you sig make sure you follow his instructions but set it to show
