Forum Signature rules

#1
Just looked at realized how obnoxious I made my own signature
(it doesn't seem so bad in the editor, but in posts this is crazy)

whats the forum guidlines on this?

lol how the software handles or i should say doesnt handle signatures is a definite problem atm.. I went from spending most my time fixing my vB4 forum to spending most of my time removing ridiculously over sized sigs on XF.. It really is one thing that drives me crazy.
I have signatures turned off, you can probably guess why... ;)
I wish i could do that now (on my forum).. had i known at the beginning there wasn't a way to automagically set sig limits i would have just disabled signatures to begin with..

I think it bothers me because of the repeated sigs. Maybe if sigs where limited to one a page it wouldn't be so bad [for me].
I have that as a template edit on my vB forum. Should be fairly trivial to also get done on XF. I'll see if I can get that done if nobody beats me to it.

It's not a problem on my vB forums and won't be a problem on forums in general since the forum owner would set the rules.
When someone has a problem with a sig on my vB3 forum other members generally let that person know and it's corrected.
It's usually corrected before I even notice it.
Hobby forums can get away with peer to peer monitoring.

It's one of the few things that really destroy what this forum tried to achieve (focus on content) and I have to say with it's generous rules (which there aren't any) the focus is always on the signature rather than content.

Personally I think it's ridiculous at some of the signatures allowed on here. Quite a few of them are longer than the posts themselves.

One of the problems members here have is reducing the size of their signature because of the limitations in the CMS at the moment, I tried to reduce the size of my font a few times, but when I did it was so tiny that it did not work.
