New Signature Standards
« on: June 02, 2011, 04:32:23 AM »
I am sick of mile long signatures.  Because of this the signature rule has been amended.  Before it allowed for images with a maximum height of 300px.  This rule apparently wasn't clear and several users have made signatures much taller than this.  Personally I feel 300 pixels is way more than enough to express yourself.  We've had a bit of a debate behind the scenes about what size images we should allow and what to do about additional lines of text.  Here is the solution:

You now have 350 vertical pixels to do whatever you want with.  Anything over that is automatically cut off.

This means you can have a 300 pixel image and a couple lines of text.  You could have all text, maybe a few small images instead, the new soundcloud feature a small image and some text, etc.  Just know at 350 pixels it's going to cut you off.  You don't get a scroll bar for your signature showing the whole thing, you just get cut off.  I'd like to thank Croixiane for being a perfect example of the signature limit.  Her signature is absolutely as large as yours can be.  It's what the limit was based on.

So with the nerf bat to signatures there has also been a new added feature.  SFDark requested we add support for SoundCloud on the site.  It has been added and you are free to use it in your signatures or topics.  Go to www.soundcloud.com and search for the song you want, then add it like this:
Code: [Select]
[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/samueljtarling/exile-vilify[/soundcloud]
Height is currently not modifiable, but width can be set with the width property just like with images:
Code: [Select]
[soundcloud width=400]http://soundcloud.com/samueljtarling/exile-vilify[/soundcloud]

Width by percentage is not possible at this time.  An example of the soundcloud tag in action can currently be seen in my signature.  For those of you wondering, soundcloud will take up 81 vertical pixels.  If you use one in your signature that will leave 269 vertical pixels remaining for the rest.

Thanks for finally taking care of the issue. 350 vertical pixels is more than enough.

It's 50px over the limit.  As you can see it just gets cut off.  Doesn't matter to us if you fix it or not since it just gets cut off now.

To disable flash on specific websites you can use the extension FlashBlock available on Chrome and Firefox (but here's the Chrome version) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cdngiadmnkhgemkimkhiilgffbjijcie

Alternatively you can go to your look and layout options in your profile and disable signatures.  Of course that will disable all signatures.
