I will be on the forums all day and quite possible for a few days. I am going to clean up the entire ACen forums. So some stuff will be moved around and some stuff will be deleted.

Also a few of us will be sending out PMs to those who signatures go over the 8 line rule. So if you see this message and you know your sig is too long, better do it now or youll get a suprise in your PM :rolleyes:. If you do not comply to the pm within a certain amout of days, we will personally go in and correct it. Its gonna be a long and teedious task, but it has to be done to keep the acen forums running smooth and efficient.

Thanks for your time.

:heart:

I wonder why people leave their long sigs as is, even when warned by other forum members? :rolleyes:

::shrugs:: I wonder that myself. I guess some people tend to forget. If im not mistaken the reason being for the signature length is that it doesnt eat up a lot of memory on the forums. Im no tech geek, but thats what im thinking. Excel and the rest of the super mod crew will be working hard on this ^__^ Thats why some call me the mod mom. Someones gotta pick up after you guys :heart:

Just to clarify: do blank lines and breakers count? People like to use those a lot. Case in point:

Quote

This is my sig! LOLOLOL Look how great it is!

O hay, and I have a myspace too! And a deviantart!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
"This is a quote from somebody that I like what they said."
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I like this song,
So I'm gonna type out the lyrics (la-la-la-lala)
And everyone who sees this will knoooow
How awesome the song I like is too.
----------------------------------------------------------
Oh yeah, and I'm gonna cosplay next year at ACen!


So although that is 8 lines of text, with the breakers it is 11, and with the blank lines it is 12.

Just putting the question out there...

I was read in a previous post (of course now that I need it I can't find it) that blank lines count a one line. Hey I think this link will help with the rules of the sig length

If you count the lines it looks like you have ten lines. (maybe delete a couple of the COMEs to keep on one line) and some of the blank lines?

If she sizes the font down for the "COME COME COME..." it will fit on one line.

She can also do this to make plenty of room for other things:

Good to know. I didn't realize that blank lines count as lines. I will have to adjust accordingly, then.

Hmm... suggestions for those of you who have to edit:

For songs, instead of this format:

Quote

I like this song,
So I'm gonna type out the lyrics (la-la-la-lala)
And everyone who sees this will knoooow
How awesome the song I like is too.


using this one will cut out at least half of the space:

Quote

I like this song,/ So I'm gonna type out the lyrics (la-la-la-lala)
And everyone who sees this will knoooow/ How awesome the song I like is too.


You can even use color to diffrentiate the lines, like this:
using this one will cut out at least half of the space:

Quote

I like this song,/ So I'm gonna type out the lyrics (la-la-la-lala)
And everyone who sees this will knoooow/ How awesome the song I like is too.


Using a smaller font, even by one point, sometimes does wonders.

Hyperlinks are your friend.


er... that's all I got.

Thanks for being understanding, everyone :D

The main reasons for the sig rules are to (a) keep load times down and (B) make forum threads easy to read for everyone - nobody likes scrolling past the same giant sig over and over ;)

I would also like to mention that there is now an "About Me" section in your profile, which you can make as long as you want. XD Just remember to keep the content within forum rules.


Oh, and one more thing - if you ignore the sig length rule, we do reserve the right to change it however we see fit. :3 Usually I try to be nice and shorten the sig as best as possible, but I don't always have time, so I may just blank all or part of it.

I agree. I've told plenty of people about the signature rules and they were like RULES?!? WHAT ARE RULES!?! And thoughtI was making up stuff. I believe that this should be enforced again. <3

Yep. I've warned a few people. They;

1) Ignore me.
2) Tell me off since I'm not an admin.
3) Are oblivious that there are rules.
4) 2&3

Not only does it take up more space in the forums and can make them run slower... it's just a nuisance. I'm not fond of having to take extra time to scroll through things because someone has their life story in their sig.
