Sig pics sizes. and now forum names.
« on: November 06, 2012, 10:00:36 PM »
Sorry to be a bore, but I am getting a few complaints about sig pic sizes (being over sized)  from members who I have previously asked to resize. I must admit there are some huge ones creeping in of late.  :fighting2:

So with this in mind.

Signatures/Avatar's are allowed and can be added to your profile. Signature images should be no bigger than 450 pixels wide x 150 pixels high and not contain any inappropriate material or text which could cause offence to other forum users. Only approved traders or by prior agreement may members advertise via there forum signatures.

Can all members who don't comply please resize your signature pics please. I shall be removing oversized ones as I go along and I haven't the time to PM everyone to tell them where there pics have gone.   :drinking:

Also from now on, no more forum name changes unless temporally for a joke. One it is a ball ache doing it, two; it poses security issues.

You shouldn't have to explain. It's in the rules.

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

Just realised mine's oversized! Am certain I set it to the correct size. Will fix.

EDIT: Topcat - your image is too big too!

Right, the images can be scaled down so they don't interfere.

Code: [Select]

Guys it is not a big problem, I would say don't go off the figures above in my first post because each puter seems to work it out differently. I would say a couple of inches as we look at it is enough, Obviously it is the height not the width that is a problem. MK5 GTIAN yours i would say is right on the limit.  :smiley:
