Default Signature length

Can we please get some kind of rule or "pretty please" on signature lengths/size?

I understanding wanting to get a picture in and wanting to include a bunch of stuff but scrolling through them and the amount of time it takes to load some of them is getting a bit insane. I try to surf chaz on my phone and can't because some of the siggies are so huge! Not to mention trying to read a thread and scrolling past huge siggies before getting to the next post.

I don't even think there even needs to be a rule but please.. if your siggy is like beyond huge, please, think of the kittens and me and please think about making pictures smaller and maybe keeping it shorter and sweeter. Or maybe just having one picture of all your dogs instead of like 3 separate pictures?

Please.

Is mine too big? I'm on Ryan's ginormo screen computer a lot of the time, and can't tell Willing to make it smaller if it's annoying!

Is mine a problem when you're on a phone? It never lags on my phone but then I don't really have an issue with them anyway unless it fills my while screen and I'm wildly scrolling through a vast signatureland without a map... I always assumed mine would load fast since it isn't exactly high resolution...

Yours is really long height-wise, but since it's also thin it doesn't tend to cause me an issue.

Yours has never lagged my phone.

I need to make a new signature soon anyway... wondering if mine is too big....

PS - my random question for this post was "A cat with 1 eye is missing how many eyes?" .....

Just got the 3+2+1 question and I kept putting 5 and I was like
"WHY IS IT SAYING I'M WRONG!! IT'S 5!!"
and I got so upset.. lol yup.. it's 6.

None of your siggies make my phone lag, I don't know what it is but it's driving me nuts.

I finally made the plunge and splurged like $2 for tapatalk so it shouldn't be an issue anymore.

I don't think there needs to be a rule or want to make anyone feel awkward or obligated, just figured I would say something and if anyone had some stuff they are willing to let go of or make smaller they could.

I have tapatalk now so I'm good! lol

Best post ever. I love seeing signatures and dog pictures every time I read a thread, but I disabled them a while back because some people have really annoying signatures.

A good conservative limit is 200 pixels high, and if you really must have twelve different tickers in there, 250 is a less conservative limit. The problem is that if you're trying to read a thread and people have crazy signatures, you have to scroll after almost ever post on a laptop or phone.

It got to the point using my tablet was CRAZY with some of the bigger signatures.

It was turn off signatures or complain..........I turned them off I miss seeing all the signatures....many of them made me laugh and brightened my day, but it has saved about a bajillion minutes in loading/scrolling.....time I put to use elsewhere.
