Signatures and Avatars Rules
« on: 07/19/02 09:54 PM »

A quick reminder to everyone ...

Make sure your custom Avatar does not exceed 30K and your Signature does not exceed 30K.  

You can check their sizes by right-clicking on the images and looking at their properties. Please resize and/or compress any which exceed these limits.  

The size for the Avatar should be 100 x 100 pixels and the Signature should not exceed 510 x 100 pixels.

This will help improve our performance/loading times.  I have come across some that were over 260K!  

Thanks for your cooperation.

Feel free to ask me or the Moderators any questions.

A QUICK reminder ....please check your AVATAR....and make sure they comply with the 30K limit....

Lately we have seen several member avatar's above the 30k limit and it is becoming unmanageable for the moderators to personally remind each member who is over the limit to reduce the file size.

So please check your avatar and fix as required.

Thanks for your attention in this matter

It was brought to my attention that Jack had changes the file sizes for avatars in this thread http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php?board=42;action=display;threadid=13603;start=0

So I have corrected the above two post to reflect the new 30k limit for avatars....

I hope you understand and this subject should be clear now....thanks to those who pointed out a few things in various threads to me.....

PEACE

There is a new policy on signatures and avatars and the custom text field under the avatars.

First read this thread about size restrictions:

Signature And Avatar Sizes

They shall be Rated G.  That is No sexually explicit material, No curse words, No violence, etc.

The moderators and admins will be sending PMs to those out of line and requesting you to change them.

Remember this is a family site with children and family reading the forums.

Thank You for your cooperation.

Please double check the size of your signature picture....We are seeing many pictures that exceed our size limit as dictated in the first post of this thread.

The moderators and admins will be sending PMs to those who we see exceed these size limits of 510 pixel wide by 100 pixel tall.

The avatars section in the admin tools is (or was when I set it up) to automagically resize images that were bigger pixelwise or filesize wise to comply with the specified parameters...  Quite cool me thinks.  ;D

If you change your sig pic...please edit your original thread and remove the original sig pic to save some server space....

In lieu of this might be better to put your sig in your album and then insert URL into your sig...as an img tag....

A quick reminder to everyone ...

Make sure your custom Avatar does not exceed 30K and your Signature does not exceed 30K

You can check their sizes by right-clicking on the images and looking at their properties. Please resize and/or compress any which exceed these limits. 

The size for the Avatar should be 100 x 100 pixels and the Signature should not exceed 510 x 100 pixels.

This will help improve our performance/loading times.  I have come across some that were over 260K! 

Thanks for your cooperation.

Feel free to ask me or the Moderators any questions.

goo929

Little Reminder for everyone since I have been removing those that exceed these limits.....

please check yours out to see if it complies...

As for avatars the big issue is file size.... right click yours and select properties...make sure it is under 30720 bytes or 30kB

As for sig pics biggest offense is exceeding our 100 pixel height limit.....

So if you find you have lost your sig pic or avatar...more then likley it exceeded our limits...and was removed...

Thanks for checking them...

To put pic in your sig:

Maximum total file size is 30kB
Maximum total picture width is 510 pixel
Maximum total picture height is 100 pixel

Store it in your personal CAFCNA photo album...

See this thread for info on setting that up: How to use the Album (Gallery) & info

then go to your profile and select Forum Profile Information

Scroll down to the signature part...

type in what ya want for text.

and to have a pic...

enter
Code: [Select]
[img]URL for PIC[/img]
where URL for pic can be found by right clicking pic in your album and selecting Properties and then cut and pastw the ENTIRE address(URL)

if you see the following in your Sig:

Sig Pic removed Exceeded file size limit of 30Kb

Your Sig pic file size was too big and removed.

If we have to remove it a second time you will lose Sig privileges for a period of time.
If we have to remove it a third time you will lose posting privileges...


Large Sig pics slow things down for everyone...

So be courteous to your fellow member and check your Sig file size...

Check your avatar as well as max file size is the same 30KB.

If everyone kept the Sig and avatar under 30KB the site would speed up a bit.

Thank You

The sizes listed, is that just for pics?  That is, can there be some text underneath as well?  Or do I need to change my sig  ;D

Size of 30kb & 510x100pixel is for the sum total of any pictures linked to by using the img code.

the whole sig is limited to certain number of characters as well...

Yours is perfectly fine....

Thanks for asking...

I can understand the 510X100 limit on Sig files because they could easily end up 200px wide and totally ruin the look and layout of the forum, the part I'm unclear on is the need for a 30K limit on them, they are linked from an outside source so i can't see it being a bandwidth issue.

I'll be the first to admit, this is a completely selfish question, notice how the 67k banner is nice and sharp but the compressed jpg in the sig is kind of...not?

Since they only look different when viewed side by side, whoever builds them is really the only person who notices anyway. It doesn't matter but
I've been curious about the subject for quite awhile and this seemed as good a time as any to ask.

Reason for file size limit of sigs and avatars is to speed up the forums for those on dial up.

If everyone had a huge sig and you open a large thread it could take a long long time to open...

yes you can turn off seeing peoples sigs and avatars but some dial up users may want to see...

Everyone please abide by these file and pixel size rules....

The limit has been so since 2002.

If Onstar can cut loose a few million people with analog service systems we can inconvenience the 4 people still using dial up :A:

My across the street neighbor still has dial-up, I enjoy sending them huge files.

I always abide by the size limits, even on the front page banners which are apparently immune from the 30K rule

If for some reason you find your avatar or Sig pic missing.....

MORE then likely it is because the file size exceeded our size limits .....and we deleted it....

MAX file size for avatar and sigs is 30K....

please check yours by right clicking on it...and hitting properties......

THANKS

reminder since some do not read entire thread

Reminder to all..

There is a new policy on signatures and avatars and the custom text field under the avatars.

First read this thread about size restrictions:

Signature And Avatar Sizes

They shall be Rated G.  That is No sexually explicit material, No curse words, No violence, etc.

The moderators and admins will be sending PMs to those out of line and requesting you to change them.

Remember this is a family site with children and family reading the forums.

Thank You for your cooperation.

A quick reminder to everyone ...

Make sure your custom Avatar does not exceed 30K and your Signature does not exceed 30K.  

You can check their sizes by right-clicking on the images and looking at their properties. Please resize and/or compress any which exceed these limits.  

The size for the Avatar should be 100 x 100 pixels and the Signature should not exceed 510 x 100 pixels.

This will help improve our performance/loading times.  I have come across some that were over 260K!  

Thanks for your cooperation.

Feel free to ask me or the Moderators any questions.

A friendly reminder to everyone. Please check your avatar and siggy for file size.
