    From time to time, I see people with the signature

    "Signature removed by staff, check your PM box for details."

    I first thought that it was just a fad that people would do, but then I noticed noobs that had them too.

    What was wrong with those signatures, and why does no one PM me? [​IMG]

    Why start such a stupid thread in site suggestions?

    It's clear you know the rules on signatures as you signature is 500x150, the maximum allowed. To know that was the maximum, you would have had to read the rules. Those signatures which are removed, don't comply with the signature rules.

    No, I mean... If that does happen, doesn't the signature page just say "No signatures those sizes are allowed?"

    I mean, was there any flash content in signatures, or maybe webpage hijackers (if that's possible)?

    I'm dead serious, and I'm sorry if I sound stupid.

    TJ Cool posted an image of what a mod sees in one of his posts.

    If I remember correctly, there's a button on the post for them 'remove signature'. The message which replaces it is more than likely automated.

    I've reported a few that have been oversized, there are those on here that have signatures ~1MB. You can tell as your PC sits there loading them for a while.

    There was something on here previously about a former member of staff who wanted to screw with the site by using oversized images.

    Oh, so if it is inappropriate or something, he can just delete it? Oh. Thanks for the help!

    Many people broke that rule so they are removed. and tksaturn is correct about 1MB sigs AND GIF avatar's..

    This forum is "site discussions & suggestions", therefore it is indeed in the correct forum to ask such a question.

    If you break the pixel size limit, it gets removed.

    If you go over 80k for the combination of both the avatar and sig pic, it gets removed.

    If either the ava or sig contains inappropriate imagery, it gets removed.

    Hope that explains things.

    GIFS aren't wrong by any means, but they should be small enough. And yours only has a couple of frames, so it is allowed.

    You got it!

    (I sort of wonder what the PM says when we remove them.)

    I wondered that myself, so I removed my own avatar [​IMG]

    This is what I got:



    Your avatar has been removed by the staff.
    Unfortunately it violated the rules of the GBAtemp forum.
    Please consult the rules (quoted below) and exchange or adapt your avatar before resubmitting.
    Thank you for your cooperation and have a nice a nice day!


    The Rules



    None of this I've written myself.
    The message for signature should be the same.
