    I mean, does my signature really have to follow every post I make? Why can't it just follow my last post of that page? There have been many a time I'd scroll up/down a page to see the same images of theirs/mine multiple times. I only need to see them once. Its completely unnecessary.

    Make yours smaller/less noticeable then, it'd minimize yourself looking at it more or something.

    People often use signatures to recognise other members and their own postspersonally I don't like this idea and I hope it's not implemented.

    Why don't you completely disable signatures then. [​IMG]

    Well I was having a problem last night with the 80kb limit. In my opinion all limits should be 120kb. But thats an unrelated matter.

    I kept wondering why GBATemp has such weak image and size limits and the only explanation I can come up with is bandwidth issues. Which doesn't make sense if an image is loaded multiple times. In the very least it should be a personal option.

    I don't want to disable signatures because I like them, but I don't very well want to see them multiple times on a page.

    Just don't let your signature show in posts if you know you're going to post afterwards again, like this.

    I like signatures the way they are, their used to identify members of the community just like avatars are, hell i don't usually look at a username anymore, i can just recognise a user by their unquie avatar and signature

    You have a huge signature. Just make it smaller. Or, like me, get rid of completely. (Actually I had a signature but that script kiddie some months ago deleted it and I left it that way..)

    I haven't really understood why both an avatar AND a signature is needed anyway. [​IMG]

    A sig especially a picture with your name on it is very helpful in recognizing a user.
    Avatar's can be just changed every now and then. BUt sigs that are made for yourself are very recognisable

    Under "Post Options", there's a checkbox for "enable signature". If you don't want your sig following you around, either uncheck that for the post, or just remove the sig totally. It's your choice, and I highly doubt the Admin will do anything else to change this situation.

    Sorry :/

    Also, misleading topic title xD I thought you meant people having the same signatures. Like months ago, the |ock3rz thing, and now the free advertising for ShopTemp.

    The limits are fine, you just need to optimise your image. Reduce the filesize without loss of quality:
    Tutorial - Optimising Images for the Web
    After following these instructions your sig weighs in at about 30KB.

    Technically speaking, you still DO have a problem with your sig and ava. The combination of both of them far exceeds the 80k limit. To be clear, your ava (43.88k) AND sig (84.66k) cannot go over 80k according to forum rules. Your current total is 128.54k.

    I won't just remove it though, I'll give you time to fix it yourself first.
