Lately there seem to be a lot of users with very large sigs consisting of several images and lots of text. Quite often they fit within the 50KB specified in the forum rules, but it seems to me that they are not following the spirit of the rules, which seems to be "don't have a huge sig". My suggestion is to keep the file size limits as they are, but to change the dimension limits to a maximum vertical size for the entire sig (as opposed to just the main graphic), and a maximum width for the widest image in the sig. That way people can have an average size main sig graphic and some text, a larger sig image and little or no text, or a lot of text and no images (or just very small ones). I'm thinking around 135px for the total verticle limit, and 500 for the horizontal limit. Whatever sizes are chosen, it should be a strict limit, at least for the vertical size. This will give people a room to be creative, while still preventing huge sigs. Referral links should be explicitly prohibited. They really bug me, and they seem to violate the rules about advertising, seeing as how they are not links to the member's own website or forum. I think giant text in sigs should be prohibited, but that's just my opinion. Sigs shouldn't distract people. Regardless of whether or not any of these changes are made, the signature guidelines ought to be on the sig editing page as well as in the rules. That way everyone with a sig has to see them. Edit: In case it isn't clear, I don't think the rules should really be more strict that they are now, just more specific.
