New forum signature rules
« on: December 26, 2015, 04:56:16 PM »
We have recently noticed that the size and number of images in signatures has increased vastly.
It is becoming a problem for users on slow internet connections and for mobile users with data limits.
We encourage to express yourselves and continue to do so, but we also want to keep this website accessible to all users.

Therefore we introduce new signature rules:

  • Maximum of 2 images per signature.
  • Maximum size of images: width: 500 pixels height: 125 pixels.
  • Maximum file size of images: 500 KB.
  • No youtube tags.

Tips
  • If you have more than 2 images, consider rotating them weekly or so. Unfortunately we do not have a function to automate this, so you have to manually update your signature.
  • If your regular image is too large, you can use the following websites to convert it: resizeimage.net and imageoptimizer.net.
  • Nearly all animated gif images currently do not comply to the new rules.
  • If your animated gif image is too large, you can use the following website to convert it: ezgif.com.
  • Not all animated gif images currently in signatures can be converted with satisfying results while adhering the new rules. Consider reducing the number of frames to comply with the file size.
  • After conversion you need to re-upload your image. You can use the following image hosting sites: tinypic.com, postimg.org, imgur.com. Don't forget to update your signature with the new image link.
  • If you don't know whether your signature images comply to the rules or if you need help with conversion, you can ask a member. You can use this topic to ask for help.

We will start to enforce these rules in early 2016.

GT banner uses the img tag, so will also be seen as an image.
