New forum rule - no animated signatures

The title says it all. They have become annoying.

    A real shame. Would much rather have no allowed .gifts  on the body of a post. Ah well...

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...


    ...But you'll always follow the voices beneath.

    Most signatures amused me, and some of them are just :3

    The only one I didn't really like was the spider one, but I have enough internet fortitude to just scroll past it.

    While I agreed with the limit on signature size, I feel this change is a significant reduction of forum quality. :c

        My were usually humerous and witty, but I guess people using gianormous ones gets annoying, especially when they stack them on top of each other. Looking at you, @Bluef.

        Open it in mspaint and save as a gif.

        Does this count as a gif or a picture? You can't tell if it's spinning or not. Can I use this as my sig and be rebellious? I'm gonna use this as my sig and be rebellious.

        I didn't say you couldn't use gifs. I said you couldn't use animated gifs. The .gif format is quite lovely for reducing file size of graphics that don't contain a lot of gradients.

        @Sarapis - you could consider forcing the signatures to be a certain height as well - or get rid of them altogether (seriously - are they necessary?).

        They just gave us these fancy new character banners, so yes.

        13. Forum signatures may not be animated or taller than 200 pixels.

        That's great, except that rule seems pretty arbitrarily enforced. Maybe it's just because I use a laptop to browse forums quite often (when not just doing it on my phone) but there are people with stacked images that are probably side by side on wider resolutions.

        Pictures in forum sigs are a waste of space in general.  I wish I could just turn signatures off entirely, tbh.

        Except for @Tesha's.  I like watching it spin.

            The irony is that he technically has a picture in his sig space.

            It's not that I really mind them in general, it's just that people tend to go overboard.  It's silly when 7/10ths of a thread is signatures. (ex: approximately 1/15th of the vertical space Kresslack's post occupies is actually his post.)

            edit:  Oh yeah, @Kayeil - thanks!  Wow, I especially love the mobile option.

                I don't always make one line posts, but when I do, it's because I want you to read my sig quotes.
