Zack de la Rocha Network Forum _ Archives _ Signature Text And Image Size

: cosmic Jul 31 2003, 01:29 PM

Since some members seem to ignore the correct size of image that is allowed in signatures, all images larger than 150*75px are not allowed. I don't like reiterating by having to post "reminders" or PM'img members. I have had pinned up for 6 months giving members plenty of time. I believe this is not fair to members that do cooperate. Also, text should be 5 lines or less(small font).

This was the maximum size set a long time ago...

If I havent stated it before, the reason why I want small or no sig images is for load speeds. Many of our members run on 56k, or less, and images eat up ALOT of time; and if there is a large image post after post, things start to lag and get annoying. As a webmaster, speed is of the essence. ermm.gif This is for the benefit of all.

Thank you and I appreciate your help. smile.gif

How will your moving to a dedicated server make big pic sigs any more convenient for a person on a 33.6 modem? If the reason you want smaller sigs is for low bandwidth visitors then they are still going to be imposed upon whether you're dedicated, virtually hosted or piggybacking.

: cosmic Aug 1 2003, 12:29 PM

True, but that wasn't part of the point I was trying to make about loading. Image loading from a shared or dedicated server is practically the same for a sub 500Kbps user, I understand. Less images, will make a forum page load faster. This is the client situation.

The point you made was the other side of the situation. Shared hosting is that, shared, I have a monthly allotment of bandwidth that will reduce without repetative images in forum pages. Any BW over the limit, I need to pay extra. ...and this site is growing. This is the server situation.

Yeah, I get that part. I was merely suggestng that if we want people to cut down on the big ass pics in their sigs in order to be polite to modem people, then we would probably want to continue to be polite even afterwards.

Just a thought.

: cosmic Aug 3 2003, 10:53 AM

I agree,.

: Marla Singer Aug 28 2003, 10:29 AM

you guys talking about sig images?

: zapatista Sep 25 2003, 09:21 PM

si, Señor mellow.gif

: cosmic Sep 25 2003, 09:22 PM

shoot me a pm about the culprit.

: Manifest Sep 25 2003, 09:23 PM

yeah it sux to wait for the same damn image to load over and over again on a couple threads, it's cool to wait to look at an image but it is real irritating to have to wait on the same pic multiple times in the same page

: feedsonlifedotnet Nov 4 2003, 08:17 PM

I agree. signatures should be kept to text out of respect for those with dial-up

: rev79 Nov 4 2003, 09:38 PM

Dial-up here. That's all a mofo can afford these days...
