    Re: [Important] Signatures + Avatars

    *starts to google for another avatar implying aversion of church and nation*

    nah, not really, but it seems i need to check some avater sites.

    so if i get this straight, if we don't add anything else, we can add 10 lines of text in our signature?

    edit: if I saw an avatar I find really awesome, but it is like 10.01 KB, is that still allowed? or is it zero tolerance? and if it still allowed, what is the borderline to determine if an avatar/signature is allowed?

    edit2: my current avatar is 9.84kb, so still inside the rules.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    We love you too *snacks on her "Power" bar to become even more powerful*

    Like Dinnerbone, I will send you a PM if I remove or edit your signature/avatar. This PM will contain an explanation on why I did so + the original code of your signature or avatar so it won't be lost entirely. I do this because it'll allow you to just modify the original code to fit our rules.

    Cheers,

    Ok everyone you have just under a week before we start enforcing the new rules. You have until that time to resize your avatars and shave off a few pixels from your signatures

    Also most ppl probably don't recognize that the "achievements" generated by mmo cluster are 535 x 104 pixels. Will be lost of whining come 1st of December and the 500 x 100 rule is enforced. Noticed these things when I checked my sig yesterday (and changed it afterwards)

    Just made myself a new signature, because the old one was too large. Filesize is still too large because i saved it as .png, just have to reupload the .jpg version ^^

    No, it's a mess when you see everyones signatures bigger than the posts. Trust me on that, it's not a pretty sight.

    Same reason you can't force people into buying bigger computers, or getting faster internet, just because you want to wave your e-peen around on a public forum. :P

    There's zero need to claim a giant 800 x 400 space under "every.single.post.you.make" just because "you" liked that image.

    Re: [Important] Signatures + Avatars

    I have to laugh at those QQing over the new restrictions. Personally, I have never worried about the file size because I always design my avatars/sigs with the restrictions of a particular forum in mind. In the case of my avatar, it checks in at just under 3kb (EDIT: OK, I decided to update just a tad, still the avatar around 3kb in size, 3.05kb to be exact). Since all avatars display as an 80x80 images (larger avatar sizes are automatically scaled down), I produced my avatar from my existing images with-in that size limit. Due to the number of forums I usually post on that restricted sigs to around 500x100, I work with-in that limit and usually go for 400x80. Yes it's a bit of a challengt to restrict to a small space to create a decent image.

    Most forums that I regularly post on have similar restrictions. It's nothing new. I don't really see what the big deal is in working with-in the rules. MMO-Champion is not an art gallery. As mentioned not everyone has a huge screen (only 1024x768 here) and even those with huge screens and huge "pipes" don't always want to slog through the huge images. The QQers just need to grow up, adapt or go find a new forum home if they are so bothered by the new restrictions.

    Re: [Important] Signatures + Avatars

    Ok guys because I'm starting to be spammed with PMs and post reports about signatures and avatars, I'm going to turn this thread into an easy way to report offending users. If you spot someone with a bad signature or avatar, post a link to their profile here. This gives that user a small chance to change their signature/avatar before it's removed, and helps keep everything a little more organised Try to avoid double posting if possible (If you're the last poster and you want to add a few more names, just edit your post). We'll delete your post after dealing with the users to avoid spamming up the place.

    Are you fucking kidding me... my "simple" avatar is 24 KB?!? stupid upload button.

    Because everyone views their browser window at 400x400, right? ^-^

    If you were to measure the 100px height on THAT assumption, anyone with more than 2 lines of text would fall under that. Under 1024x860 and above, most text will display fine.


    That aside, most can be seen at an easy glance, no need for right clicking anything unless it's a gray area case. Which is usually avatars with more than 3-4 frames animated.
