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.

What old days? The old days I remember, like late 90s-early 00s, consisted of forums with no signature limit, so people would literally put like 5+ images and tons of text in their signatures so you had to keep scrolling... and scrolling... and scrolling. Some forums are still like that. *Those* are ridiculous signatures, one single image is not.

ohgod. Flashbacks to the various Final Fantasy forums I was a part of back in the old days of the late nineties/early 2000's. I THOUGHT I HAD FORGOTTEN NOOOOOOOOOO.

Ahem. On-topic.

I personally voted for the biggest option because I don't mind big pictures.

i noticed that every option is for 700 width -- is this arbitrary or was there a reason 700 was chosen?

I'm guessing because that's the fixed width of the post box. Anything bigger would stretch it and anything smaller would be needless since width has no impact on scroll time.

The max non-stretching signature space is 845, a bit wider than the text box.

It's 845 until you take the avatar into account. This is an 845 px wide image and it's resized once you post it.

I just checked--it actually resized it to 678px.

Weird, I got that distance by screenshoting a post and taking the length of the grey divider between post and signature -- measured out to 845 pixels on the screen.

Edit: Nope, not sure what's going on but 845w fits perfect without any scaling on my screen.

Edit 2: Looking at screen of darling Prim's view of this thread, my sig does indeed scale a little bit for her. We're both using 1920x1080, so I'm not sure why Enjin as I see it is slightly different than how she sees it. Just a tiny bit off in the scaling -- whatever, my new sig is 150x700 :d

Edit 3: Nevermind, I'm literally the most stupid -- I've been using EBH @ 125% because I'm going blind / am blind.

I would like to submit that the people who suddenly have either super large signatures or animated signatures, who never had them before but now suddenly do after people in this thread have mentioned they don't like them, are in fact trolling. :/ I didn't have an issue with animated signatures before, but after seeing them used to be deliberately disruptive, I'd go along with the people who'd like to see them not allowed on the forum, as they are distracting in large numbers.

choosing to have a signature within the confines of the space provided is no more trolling than people making suggestion threads to get the smallest things that bother them changed.

being part of a community is making concessions -- there's a size limitation going in as it is I mean choosing to use an animation is making the best of the limited space -- before I could have had a single, non-moving plate for each of the characters in my sig -- animation lets me fit the same amount of "info" into the smaller space.
