oh no! i have to chose between my beloved four! o this is like sophies choice.... :(

They might all be too big.  The byte size allowed now is very, very small, so you might not be able to use any.  Mine wasn't even that big or long and it was too big.

Are you sure it's not your old signatures and avatars that were EXTREMELY big? :roll:

Was it really necessary to put the eye rolling smiley in?  My avatar was just barely over the newly set limits, so no mine wasn't all that big.  I'm not complaining about the new changes.  I welcome them.  I wanted them.  I was having problems loading the forum and I have a fast connection speed.  You don't need to convince me.  Really. :roll:

No, it wasn't really necessary, but I did it anyway :lol: I'm not sure why you're so defensive though, if I had been speaking specifically about your old avatar and signature, I wouldn't have used the plural s's... In fact, I have no idea how big your old avatar and signature were.

and cherry_bomb's new signature alone will save dial-up users more than 40 minutes :shock: of loading time!

THANK YOU for this new policy- I was having to sit here forevarrrrr waiting for the forum to load. Like, everyone had about 7 different mini-movies that were at least a MB a piece! Sorry I live in dial-up hell, but now I can use the forum quicker. MUCHAS gracias!

"Please do not use the marquee function on them in your signatures.."

Sorry, that's one of the rules as well.

If anything, you may have to choose between the video and the banner. I'm not sure if it goes over the size limit to be honest with you.

Any pornographic or signatures of a violent nature will be removed.



Was that why my moving man was removed?

Yes there is.  But I like seeing everyone's sigs.  I agree with pensive though, everything is running a lot smoother.  I was having trouble and I have one of those superfast connection thingies.  See how technical I am?  :lol:  Anyway, thanks everyone for complying, I know it's hard to lose your beloved sig stuff!   :D

Your sig pic can be 500x100.  Yours is too big Kathy, and Slither yours is too.  They are too high, but not by much, so it shouldn't be too hard to fix!
