View Full Version : Sig Rules. Read First

Dec 18th, 2002, 01:08 PM
Signatures and avatars must not include any adult or inappropriate content, must contain a combination of images no larger than 600 x 200 pixels, and must not exceed a total file size of 12500 kilobytes (1,25MB).


With testing preferably look at an old post if you have one
Request by PM sig makers (please note I am not a sig maker).
All sig threads must remain in the sig forum. Off-topic and Artwork are now sig post free zone's.
Sigs that have been made may have a thread to their own.
Don't post a sig you made in a thread in somebody else's thread or start commenting on a different sig to the one(s) specified in the thread, Plenty of space for your own thread in here
Spamming of course is not on, especially multiple testing in a row
Do not flame other sigs constructive crit's only
If you used free textures, custom brushes, free backgrounds or anything else you did not create, you have to give credit to the person who made it (preferably with a link to his or her site). If this is not done then this will be seen as ripping. Anyone found to push these boundries intentionally will also face consequences.

If you are unsure if your sig and avatar falls outside these rules, PM me or one of the sig forum mods :)

The thread will be left open for comments/debate on the current rules and suggestions for new ones.

Please Check the AUP in the FAQ (http://forum.esforces.com/faq.php) for further rules

If I tell cuc off he will hurt me >_<
And getting Hibiki to change his sig a second time would be like getting blood out of a stone (not on it, out of it)

Dec 20th, 2002, 04:34 AM
He never changed his sig the first time, it was bigger than his current one. I'm trying to get the admins to change it for him.. :)

Around 600x200 is ok

Mine is 50 square pixels over . . .

If the screen needs to scroll in 1024x768, it's to big.

Dec 20th, 2002, 07:08 AM

Omg... this has turned into a general help forum.. and all the n00bs seem to be flocking from all forums to post here :S Half the stuff they are asking about has been answered a few posts up.. I get the feeling of lockage on this thread :p

Apr 12th, 2003, 04:54 AM
well lets see if mine works

i know prob

May 21st, 2003, 09:27 PM
What are the guidelines for flash sigs? Or are they allowed?

Jun 6th, 2003, 11:01 AM
Should work out some rules for them

But for now the same rules as normal sigs but only 1 flash sig in your sig

Jul 18th, 2003, 08:57 PM
hmmm, my sigs dont work, WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!!!!!!!!!

Dec 12th, 2003, 09:35 PM
can someone please put me in the sig makers list. just asking.

Feb 15th, 2004, 11:58 PM
There should be a rule on how many animated sigs you can have. On DSL, 3 is just fine and dandy but even one is a pain on dial-up.

Apr 30th, 2004, 07:12 PM
100 kb ?? Are you serious?? a 10x10 pixels blank peice of crap is bigger than that !! My sig is 1000kb!!! Can I plse have an aception?

May 1st, 2004, 09:31 AM
dude... 1000kbs...? your sig is 1meg? i highly doubt that.

id say 90 at the most

EDIT: no its 148 cuz its a .bmp

May 1st, 2004, 09:39 AM
No not the one I curently have , MY ULTIMATE SIG, I cant show it cos bandwith limit exeeded.get tha pictcha?

May 1st, 2004, 09:50 AM
Firstly, I would love to know how big exactly that sig is, I've made wallpaper that was 1 meg.

Secondly, no the mods won't make an exeption for one person because it would end up with a domino effect of people askinin why they cant put 1 meg sigs in.

My biggest sig is 27.2kbs and this one I'm using now is 11.6kbs, so I'm betting yours is a .gif. Convert it to a .jpg and i garantee that its size will shrink dramatically.

May 1st, 2004, 10:10 AM


No freaking way o_O

200kb is our limit and that's it

May 1st, 2004, 10:16 AM

May 1st, 2004, 06:47 PM
Me suck?? My sig is 100 times better than youres will ever be! So go and diss someone else, before I start testing the swearing filter!

May 1st, 2004, 07:25 PM

May 1st, 2004, 07:39 PM
I know my sig is'nt all that great it's my 5th one!And what else could he have talked about?

May 2nd, 2004, 01:03 AM

i talked about your self...
and if you really think your sig is better then mine..
why dont have an match then ?

go ahead take me for an match..
doesnt matter because i already won

May 2nd, 2004, 05:06 AM
If you want to test something Leon, why not try me and my patience

You won't last long trust me

Read this before you post anymore http://forum.esforces.com/faq.php?faq=vb_board_usage#faq_forum_aup

Break those rules and you will be broken yourself

Jul 6th, 2004, 04:56 PM
