Sig Too Long?

Post by FryGuy » Tue Aug 19, 2003 4:01 pm

Ok I tried to take a picture out of my sig because the address to the image had expired. When I tried to take it out it told me my signature is too long. What's up with this? I don't have a huge signature, so what's the the problem? Or are you guys putting a restriction on the length of sigs with the updated forums?

I'm not trying to add anything, I wanna shorten it. But because apparently it's too long as it is, I can't shorten it if I want to keep everything else.

Well, we shortended it a lot. I got tired of seeing entire poems and essays in sigs.

Do you realize how much you shortened it? Go to edit yours, you'll be allowed your PIC and 1 line, thats all..

Just checking
You shut your mouth

How dare you say

I go about things the wrong way

I am human and I need to be loved

Just like everybody else does

There's a club if you'd like to go you

Could meet somebody who really loves you So you go, and you stand on your own and

You leave on your own and you go home,

And you cry and you want to die.

When you say it's gonna happen "now",

When exactly do you mean? see

I've already

Waited too long and

All my hope is gone

You shut your mouth

How dare you say

I go about things the wrong way.

Actually, my entire signiture is only 203 characters. The limit is 250. I might raise it later depending on opinions of members and staff.

I was trying to amend my signature last night and I had about 220 characters out of the 250 used and it said my sig was too long.
i watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor.

that's my dream, that's my nightmare.

crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor... and surviving.

Actually Skye, If you count the space between the top text and bottom text its somewhere around 321 characters.. Therfor, try to change your signature and save it, it won't be allowed, Unless Admins are exempt from your limitations.
