Don't offend, ensure images/text is appropriate and no GIF's.

Your signature looks fine so if you're worrying about that don't worry :).

I'm pretty sure it lags the website.

Because it'd be abused, and I think it'd take longer for the page to load.

By abused, I mean that people will post stupid and not needed ones.

Gifs were stopped because it was causing too much bandwidth on the servers (I believe)

Also scrolling down a thread seeing tons of colourful, moving signatures got pretty bad after a while.

There's also a rule on sizing, it can't be taller than 200px - though the staff are quite lenient with it, we don't go around measuring signatures. Just somewhere around there.

Marking this thread as 'Solved'

Apologies on the somewhat necro but Krimbo here states a 200px height -

Is there a limit/suggested size for width as well? I'm going to make myself a new signature is all

You can make it as wide as it can get. If you make it any wider it will automatically make it smaller. Doesn't work like that with height though. I believe a maximal signature would be 200x750px.

Also, the reason GIF's are not allowed is because they're a pain in the buttcrack for mobile devices.

I believe the perfect scaling for a signature is either 775x150 or 750x150 but I can't remember which one :D

If you see a sized avatar you like, right click on the picture then "Inspect element" then on the right there should be a tab called "Box model". There it will show the dimensions (In pixels not cm).

If you need any help with making a signature, just click on the "Need help?" hyperlink in my signature and that way you can PM me.

I think it's 750 x 150...that's the one I've always used.

Toorrik and Meatlunk also states:

I believe max size of a signature is 750x150.

This is correct.
