Sig Size

Recommended Posts

I remember on CF, before all the 'upgrades' they did, everyone's sig could be as tall as you wanted it, but it was in its own little area with it's own scroll bar. I don't know what it was called though.

That can actually be done with a little CSS. Something like


max-height: 250px;
overflow: auto;

Not sure on the first one, maybe it's just "height".

Personally, I think the best readability improvement that could be made to the forums would be to remove signatures altogether. Graphical and otherwise.

You can turn all sigs off in your account settings.

Yes, I gathered that from this thread. I'm thinking more in terms of readability to an anonymous guest user wandering in new to the site.

(Also, in my particular case, I never let my browser store passwords or long-term cookies 'cause I'm paranoid, so I'm typically never logged in until I decide to post something, but that's my own darn fault.)

I don't really see where signatures add anything useful to a forum, but obviously I'm in the vast minority on that issue both here and on the internet in general, so it doesn't really matter.

some of us also use sig as "add" to point people in direction of contest, website, project etc. that's the other side of the sig space that can be usefule

I'd hate to see them too, but if you go into your User CP, there's an option to turn all sigs off. Sounds daunting if you ask me. Only really helps if you're on dial-up and it takes a millenium to load a page.

also if you don't feel like looking at sigs or you have people looking over your shoulder

Just wanted to let you know that I'm going to keep sigs I make for myself and others at 500 x 200 only, unless someone asks me to do something different.

try to work on smaller scale to improve your skill. that's my advice.
