    The moderation team would like to know what posters think about the sizes of certain signatures and whether you guys think they should be capped to a certain size or not. A decision may be made as a result of the poll and the general consensus of the thread.

    I don't like the big ones myself.
    I have turned them off though, so I'm not that bothered.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Biggest trouble is quotes in sigs - the damn things have so much unneccessary space between them. I'm aware I've two in mine, and what I want to know is: why can't consecutive quotes be closer together (this is a general point on actual posts, rather than sigs)?

    Of course, there's been several recent instances of XIs being displayed in sigs - massive problems have resulted here when posters, instead of listing
    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven
    have listed
    One
    Two
    Three
    Four
    Five
    Six
    Seven
    Eight
    Nine
    Ten

    That should be modified immediately it happens IMO.

    If there's no quotes involved, sigs can go up to 15 lines and never even be close to being too long. Nothing short of ridiculous to suggest that 5 lines should be the max IMO I'm afraid. If it bothers you that much you should switch them off.

    That said, the shorter the better obviously and I'm always in favour of posters making the most of a line, rather than having a couple of words, then a return-key, then another couple of words. Examples being my sig and the "funniest post" continuum.

    Voted 5, as tbh, 10 sounds too many. Know other forums use number of characters to limit sig sizes.

    Dont think quotes as such should be in the sig, not in the quote box form anyway. Like in Gelmans sig, stick a quote in "'s and add the name before or after if you want, can be done for quotes from on here aswell.

    Eg, Rich's sig, would look better IMO if it was

    Fraz: "Arshad's are a long gone stories"
    chris.hinton : "h"


    Dont like colour, dont like boxes, nice n simple IMO

    Colour is essential - it's part of the T2IBS. No-one will EVER be taking that away from us.

    Not trying to argue for the sake of it, but why is it essential?

    Another thing - is there any way to get rid of the 1000-character limit, or is it vBulletin standard?

    Right now, the 1000 character limit actually impedes me when I've tested-out shortening my sig - I had to do all sorts of stuff to make it fit with BB-code make-up.

    Certainly works well, and I don't really like my sig TOO long. Seriously, though - I reiterate, anyone perporting the above is too long is ridiculous IMO and should be told simply to turn sigs off if they don't like it.
