    The rules for siggies is 600x200 pixels. But the forumsoftware doesn't allow that. If you make a siggy according to the rules, it will automaticly risize the pic. So I think we should adjust the rules or change the settings in the forum-software, don't you think?

    I agree, I believe the settings need to be changed. I will bring this up in the Mod Forum so that the Admin can see about getting it taken care of.

    Think that better (and easier) solution would be to simply change the siggy size rules from 600x200 to smaller, like 500x150 for example. Signatures don't need to be that large anyway in my opinion.

    Yeah but I don't want to change mine...;) 600x200 really is not that big. Mine was not that much larger than it is at the moment.

    600*200 isn't that big, all that is needed is just to change the automatic resize rules.

    That's true. I agree with the post above.

    Not to mention it will actually be less work overall just to make that adjustment. Otherwise, almost everyone will have to resize their sigs, and not everyone knows/can do that.

    To be honest I like it the way it is now. All siggys are automatically re-sized. Makes the forum look more "uniform" (in the lack of better expression). If we allow signatures to be large and with all the GB icons, everything looks just over sized to me.

    Maybe the best solution would be to leave it as it is now...?
