This is what don't understand: if you don't want to see peoples sigs, can't you just turn that off in the preference panel?

Also, once you've seen a sig, it stays in your cache so it doesn't download it every time you come across it.

Seems to me the easiest way in which to keep everybody happy is just to have those who have the problem with big sigs, turn them off in the pref panel. done. case closed no? or am i missing something?

This is where I leaned at first, but Conquer Club does a lot of event promotion and tournament advertising, etc. No one should have to turn off their signatures and perhaps miss out on something!

well there ya go! that's what i was missing.

I personally love all the creative video sigs. Not sure what a good cap would be, something around 2-3 megs? figure, 10 seconds of video at 10-12 frames per second, roughly.

If I remember right, way back when we were initially discussing this, that was the consensus, yes. The problem was that it still took a lot of time to load, even if you weren't seeing it.

I think the mods do an effective job of enforcing the pixel size limits. Once we set a rule and educate mods on how to read a file size, then I don't see this as a very big deal. I've dealt with a sig size complaint before and the PM to the user took me 30 seconds to write and the offending sig was down in a couple hours. Sounds like this same practice will be enforced in terms of file size.

However, I think even 2-3 MB might be a little big. I was thinking something more in the 1 MB range. I'm not sure we need videos in sigs as creative as they might be.

Yeah, according to some, even 1 MB is pretty big for a signature. If you save it in the correct format, it shouldn't take up that much space anyway.
