    I got a banner from SMRPGLegacy and am testing it out now. The thing is, I'm wondering if it's too big to be allowed. Obviously it's in this message. Thanks for any feedback!

    Well, for starters, the file size limit for sigs is 50 KB, and yours is 175.58 KB. And it is awfully large visually.

    Yes it's way too big. And what's with the mass haze at the bottom? [​IMG]

    Make sure it is smaller. Check out the size of signature for other people. My signature is made by a GBAtemp signature pro, so it should be the right size.

    I think the recommended dimensions are 400x100 pixels, just reduce that banner to 50% and it's good I think.

    EDIT: Like so:

    Thank you Orc! May I use your edited version? It's very nicely done! I removed my current one a second ago.

    Thanks Orc! I've attached it and I really like it. I'm not new to forums or avatars, but I've never done a sig banner before. Thanks to everyone else for informing me of the size limit. I'd rather have asked you people myself than get modded/warned by an admin for going ahead with using it. To the person who said it was hazy at the bottom, that's how it was made, not my own so I can't tell you why.
