I'd like to take a moment to remind users to take note of Section II : Signatures & Avatars esp these areas:


1.A signature may not contain more than 10 lines of text, including whitespace, if no image is being used in the signature
2.A signature may not contain more than 5 lines of text, including whitespace, if an image is being used in the signature
3.An image within the signature may not be larger than 530px in length, 250px in height and 60kb total.

A large number of users break at least one of these rules. Please edit your signatures appropriately. Starting in April I will start removing signatures that don't comply with the board rules.
