    Hey guys don't you find it a bit annoying that the size limit for the signatures are 19.5kbs? Most of the sigs I pump out are around 70kb and I cannot downsize them to 19.5kbs unless I greyscale it. Wouldn't it be better if they were bigger, I mean come on its only 70kb anyway! So I'd say it would be better if the limit for the signatures was 100kb.

    there should be a dimension limit. kb limits are retarded as depending on the quality you can have something huge or tiny. a 400x100 size would be perfect for sigs.

    Guys....I thought it was common knowledge that if you wanted a sigpic/photoshop done you gave me (or my photoshop helpers, you can find a list of them on the first post of the power user clubhouse) a holler, considering I've done sigs for the power user club, the OC club, and I made a lot of people Christmas avatars :).

    It took me five minutes in photoshop to sharpen the pictures and run it through the "save for web" feature, which I must say is the one I use most often.

    Actually, bitmap (raster) images are much larger than compressed (jpg, gif, et cetera) images.

    Sigs should be made smaller. They only waste screen real estate, and make forum browsing slower. A big sig is nothing more than a big epenis. Get over dreaming.
