What should be the maximum length for a sig?[ 49 vote(s) ]
1.Less than 3 lines 16 / 33%
2.Less than 5 lines 20 / 41%
3.Less than 7 lines 7 / 14%
4.Less than 10 lines 2 / 4%
5.There should be no limit 4 / 8%

Just reading through some of the links that have popped up regarding Justen's GT-Four, I was reminded of how glad I am that I have the power to turn of graphics in sigs!
Holy crap some of those forums are hard to read. You spend more time trying to find the actual content than reading it!

Even some sigs here have annoyed me with their length, and I'd actually like to decree that sigs have to be less than a certain length.

Some of you may not notice how big your sigs are, but do a count and then compare it to every post you make. If your sig takes more lines than your posts, you should be ashamed! Smile

What do you guys think? Just fishing for thoughts right now.

I agree there are some Looooonnnggg sigs out there.

Three lines may not always be enough for me. but 5 lines covers most little bits I want in there. Any more than that or sigs with spaces between each line start to get a little long...


EDIT: to put in more words than there are in my sig Crying or Very Sad

I'd like to say 3 (that's why I limit my sig to 3) but I know that may not be enough for some people, so I voted 5.

i voted 5, i only use one, but i think that the people who want to list the cars they own and the mods they have done should be allowed to. Its good to get an idea of what everyone owns. any more and it clutters it up too much

MY GAWD those sigs are long on that link you posted
Thank god Toymods doesnt let ppl use pictures

This is one guys signature.

Now, my resolution is at 1280x960 so I can normally get 5 or 6 posts on one screen. I could barely fit this guys signature (inside the red square)

I'll second that. Although, I really cbf adding my name in there, my car's hardly worth a mention, as such its got no mods, so I think I'll use the 5-7 lines for anything I choose Wink

Actually, sigs don't seem to be a problem here. Avatars are.

Take yours for instance Nark. Because of your avatar, you have all that white space below your sig. Like enough to fit a 10 line sig at least.

Mind I'm running 800x600 res so it *might* be different to those that like to squint at high res/low refresh rate screens. Very Happy

Yup. True about the avatars. I've always viewed that with a suspicious eye, but it's very fundamental in how we identify each other's posts.

Yep, that is the flip-side. I also use them to ID people's posts too without having to read their name. Smile

yep, umder 10, unless its warranted.

Uselss crap like listing every mod you've done is just ghey, i would have problems fitting the list of mods to the rolla on 20 lines even if i only left a space between each one.

Ones like we mostly seem to have here are good. Breif, to the point and not a waste of riceboy space.


pic sigs make baby jesus cry.

What about less than 5 lines, or more with moderator approval? (some people have a long list of cars!)

Not so much the length that matters, but the pics. That is what makes them suck.

yeah i saw a newcomer with a bit of an excessive sig a couple days ago, listed his car, his parts cars, his family's cars, and his mates cars!!!

also very glad that avatars must be approved/appropriate, some shit on the rice forums........ i mean i'm all for tits but even i think there's a point where it's a bit excessive (even tho the guys with the naked avatar/sigs probably look like comic book guy)
