Resolved [Suggestion] Forum Signature Size Limits: Part 2

As I mentioned near the start of voting, and based on the first poll's results, a second poll is required to determine which maximum size limit will be implemented. Although Option #2 was the most popular in the first poll, it is out of a common courtesy for those who voted 'No' or 'Indifferent' to choose their second best option; or after the discussion that has taken place thus far, allow someone to switch their vote.

For posterity's sake, here are the first poll's results, and the original post below that. The polling options remain unchanged, with the exception of 'No' being omitted.

No: 22
Indifferent: 4
Yes: 41




I am posting this suggestion on behalf of an EBHawk Community member. They wish to institute limits to the maximize size of forum signatures to reduce bloated forum posts while browsing threads. The images below represent select example sizes, as well as correspond to poll options.

Vivek has already indicated a second poll may be necessary on this topic. At this point that would most likely be a poll choosing between the limits in option 1 and option 2, since those seem to be the most popular.

I voted for Option 1.

While I think 250 is a bit large, I think 150 is to small. A middle ground like Beltane's 200 is a good middle ground IMO.

Technically the most popular single answer is no limit at all. This probably should have been done as a simple yes no, and then do size vote if yes won. The current one loses the input of people who vote no towards which size they think is best in the event one is imposed.

150 is ****ing huge. 50 is what most forums I met would use. So its like three times bigger than usual!

You seem to have money-stakes in it, so it is understandable to be biased.

If I sold chocolate, I would be yelling at anybody who says they make you fat.

So it is an understandable position. Still, the logic applies that signatures were rather meant to be small on forums, to not cause any trouble.
Not sure why you're swearing and accusing me of being in it for the money on top of calling signatures e-peen or whatever. Pretty weird dude.

Anyway, no, it's not just about the money. I mentioned people pay me to make signatures because it's an indication people CARE about their signatures. and no, 150 is not ***ing huge unless you're using an 800 x 600 resolution or something.

Stating a fact is not an accusation. Also, it is very huge for a forum signature, not very huge compared to screen resolution, where do you even get that?

Yes, it is huge. Most signatures are there to be a long, but short thing. Not a tall, but short thing. That's disruptive.

Only it's not a fact. You're seeing what you want to see, lol.

RPers tend to enjoy graphics and art that represents their characters. There's nothing "disruptive" or "epeen" about expressing yourself/your character/your guild through a pretty signature. You might find them needless and disruptive but clearly your opinion is not the majority.

150 would be the smallest size I have seen on any popular community or guild forum that I have ever used. (some don't allow sigs at all).

50 would just seem, pointless to me. I think there are a lot of creative and interesting sigs out there, and I would hate to see them reduced to something the size of a quarter.

Graphics are nice, and I certainly wouldn't ever suggest we shouldn't have signatures at all. However, they're not essential. As I pointed out earlier, when the pretty art takes up multiple times more screen space than the actual content of someone's post, it's a bit annoying.

That said, let's be nice to eachother on this thread, guys. Some people seem to be making personally aimed comments/taking certain statements personally, which isn't good for continuing to have a constructive conversation. In the end, it's just about pixels!
