    What exactly do you mean by "how far can you go"?

    The image can only be 500x150 or something like that but what if it is a gif?

    Never noticed the part about transparent.
    This thread served its purpose.

    It's a question we're getting a lot lately, so despite being answered, I'll answer it in a more logical form.

    500x150px combined image limit - total combined height can't exceed 150 pixels tall, and width can't exceed 150 pixels wide. Feel free to arrange multiple images to fit within this constraint. Combined filesize limit is 80KB, which is not a storage issue for the site, but a bandwidth issue for those members who are browsing off of mobile data connections, or even those unfortunate enough to still need to run DSL or dial-up. If everyone's got a 10MB signature, page loads are REALLY going to suck for someone stuck on 56k; damn near impossible, even. GIFs and other animated image types are allowed, but still need to fit within the dimension and size constraints, even if hosted offsite.

    Spoilered content DOES count towards the above limits.

    Signatures are more or less fair-game as long as it doesn't break other site rules, namely no explicit content, no warez asking/sharing. You ARE allowed to advertise, post links to your site, youtube, shop, etc, just let people know what they are clicking - no adf.ly links especially, please do not profit off of our members by clicks alone. URL shorteners in general are a pretty disliked idea, you've got more than enough text space to post a full link, or even hyperlink text to clean it up.

    There is technically no limit on what can be posted text-wise, but if your signature gets out of hand, even with text, it will be removed; don't post an entire novel because nobody cares to read any of it. If you have a lot of text you really REALLY want to post, spoiler it.

    Hopefully that makes some sense.

    Yes thank you it helped me understand better.
    I was mainly having a hard time with the dimensions on them and if multi sigs were allowed and now it is clear.

    Good, I'm glad I haven't been wasting my time reporting people with signatures that take up half, or sometimes even more of a page. Ain't nobody got time (to scroll) fo dat.

    Gifs are generally frowned upon, and on a slow connection like mine, are a pain in the ass.
