    Based on user feedback we are requesting that any images in signatures be a MAX of 468X60 pixels (for reference that is the same size as the Freestyle banner on the top right of the page).

    We are also requesting that lengthy lists of equipment be put in your user profile, not in your signature.

    These changes will help the forum pages load more quickly and let the images in the post be the focus, not those in the signatures.

    In one week the TPF staff will remove signatures that don't follow these guidelines. This will give you time to re-creat/re-size if needed.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Can you tell I think this is a good idea? :mrgreen:

    Oh, you are going to message the users who you think need to change their sigs first, right?

    Yes, I am sure we will send them a PM first.

    Don't worry, it wasn't just yours Arty. Signatures have been getting bigger and bigger over the past few months.

    While we're on the subject, how come I have that huge blank space in my signature? It just seems to be a lot bigger than everyone elses. Is there something I can do to make it smaller?

    <--that space is large enough to make all of that blank space in your signature blocks. That doesn't meant that we should all try to fill it as best we can because that's why we have the guidelines for the size of the picture listed above. It also slows down the forum a lot when there are that many large file pictures on the same page for every page you go to.
