    Signature problem: BBCode size value too big.

    Hi.

    I've recently had trouble with my signature, such that I was unable to edit it. No matter how much I added or took away, this error was returned.

    I've just changed it, and I've worked out what was happening: using any font size value above 2 (the default) returns this error. Is this intended?

    Thanks,

    Firebert

    Pretty sure MMO-C has disabled bigger text in signatures. Just so people ...don't have big text in their signature.

    I used to have BBCode size value 3 in my signature, which prevented me from editing it at all. So I either kept the big text and let my signature go out of date or lose the big text.

    I'm just curious, cause I can't remember where the signature rules are for the life of me, plus it'd be nice to have 3 back...

    It's sort of weird because it only really mentions image stuff but not BBCode things.

    OK. Thanks for that, I've just not been bothered to update my signature in a long time.

    It was mostly just an annoyance thing -- sig images are easy to ignore when scrolling down a page, but giant text in a sig tends to catch the eye and disrupt the flow of the thread.

    There were also a lot of people using giant text for borderline advertising.

    A followup question, if someone who used to have a size 3 signature before the rule change hasn't changed it yet, can he get infracted for it? because as far as I know, this change hasn't been announced anywhere apart from that link.

    Unless he's over the overall signature size limit, we won't infract for it, no.
    It's more of a slow phasing out of [size=3] instead of a sudden change.

    thanks for the confirmation.

    I asked this because you have had a number of changes recently, both visible (signature size limits) and invisible (don't know any, but they are there, i know it), but we don't get any real mention of it. it would be nice if we got a regular update on bug fixes, improvements and rule changes so people know that things change.
