Dont worry, I wont stick this one lol. Just wanted to ask you all to review
you signature field. I've noticed recently, and been advised too, that some
of the sigs around here are getting ridiculous. It seems mainly to do with
all the "Fan Club" banners. I dont have a problem with any of you joining a
fan club, as pointless as it may be (even I'm a member of the "nobody
inparticular" fan club.....but that's more of a rebellion against the
others lol), but can you not restrict yourselves as to how many you
Generally speaking, a sig should not put a strain on the average (15"?) monitor. In other words, you shouldn't have to scroll across due to an excessively wide signature. Also, some of you have displayed just one, large picture in this field, where this might be the same size as other sigs with a couple of pictures in them, it appears alot larger due to it being on it's own. Also, your signatures should not contain any links to sites etc, unless it's the Photo Bucket thingy that appears on all Photoshoped pics. Ok, that's the end of my moan. I would apreciate your assistance in checking out, and if necessary, resizing your own sigs. If you are not sure if your sig's acceptable, feel free to PM myself or another Mod, or post here. I you are not sure and just ignor it, be aware that it might just disappear!
I thought I was gonna see a video of some hot chick moaning :ohcrap:
But noooooo....Cliffy has to go on and play tricks on my mind
Hey....what's your name? GreekWarrior? :laughing:
my sig too big?
Your one's not bad.....look at mine for a template.....yes I know, I edited it last week lol. It shouldn't really be any bigger as I consider mine to be boarderline!
Ok, i'll shrink mine down a bit:thumbs:
I shall fix my sig cause I know I've had a complaint of my sig being too big. I'll switch it up.
Is mine too big?
Your sig might be a little too wide for some....:thumbs:
do peoples screen sizes really play a part in this? Because I have a fairly decent screen about 12 up 15 across of actual screen (guestimation) and the biggest sigs that I come across is yours (cliffy) and gw's. What can make it seem bigger for others? The color setting?
Screen size is measured diagonally across the screen. I think I have a 15"
screen, and yours appears too wide in my opinion. Believe me sal, I've
viewed sigs that are twice the size of mine here the past few weeks!...
Edit: infact, yours is probably boarderline, as the light grey part at the left of the screen isn't strained at all (kinda skinny lol)
what do you mean by strained? Its not indented? Well I tried to make it smaller, but I don't know what size to make it because there is something that goes on from photoshop to photobucket and it resizes funny (example I made it the same size as my old sig which was 4 inches by .8 inches, but it showed across the page as a good size, but my new one stayed the same as it is now and even lost resolution...so yea if you know how to fix that problem I'll gladly make it smaller.
As I said, I think yours is ok....just boarderline! :thumbs:
Yeah everything really appears small on my monitors, so i forget how big it
must be for others.. i'll see if this reduced size works:thumbs:
Is it good now?
Also I guess this kinda falls in here, how can I increase my resolution without having to scroll around the screen?/Is it possible? lol
Not quite sure if i understand, increasing resolution puts more stuff on the screen so you wouldn't have to scroll as often.
You could always press F11 on your keyboard.......and yours looks better now!
what does F11 do I hit it, but it didn't work. Maybe you can try alt+F4
F11 makes your browser go into full screen mode, at least for firefox and Explorer
oh, thats how I usually view the screen anyways. This is off topic, but do you know what the refresh rate does and should I increase it?
Alt+F4? I wouldn't reccomend it, but I do use it when closing a program
Not sure if I worded it properly, but I meant like everything is a bit smaller, so I can fit more stuff on the screen. lol
The higher the refresh rate the easier the monitor is on your eyes
60 hertz = 60 screen refreshes per second
Be careful when you raise the rate however, if you go too high you could damage your monitor. might want to consult the manual to see what it is capable of
I've seen this before, but the othe way around, everything looks bigger....only on another Forum provider's boards though....
You can tell if you got a low refresh rate if you look just off one side of the screen and it appears to flicker slightly:thumbs:
ok right click on the desktop, click properties, advanced tab, and then choose a higher resolution, i'd go one setting at a time higher so you don't overdo it
increasing the resolution will make it so that you can fit more stuff on
the screen (I just tried it and it worked) I'd make the resolution higher,
but I have parents that use this comp also...
bubba thx maybe that was wrong with my old screen:laughing:
Mine doesn't have the Advanced tab, this is what it shows on Settings
Increasing it by one makes the sides turn black (so the screen is square)
then you expand the monitor's coverage in teh monitor settings, wiht the
buttons in front of the monitor
Edit: and yeah i meant the settings tab, sorry
Mine shows the same....but it appears that I'm already on the snallest setting?.....which seems like the default size to me!
It's a lsptop, so there's no buttons for the screen size anywhere, and when I increase the screen resolution from there, I have to scroll through the screen to see everything :ohcrap:
you mean like 800X600?
The smaller the resolution, the bigger the stuff on your screen will appear so if you use, say 800x600 everything will appear bigger and, 1280 by 1024, will make everything will appear smaller
Basically 800X600 means that there is 800 pixels horizontally across teh screen and 600 pixels vertically across the screen
and btw try 1024 by 768 instead of 1280 by 800 unless you're using a widescreen monitor
That's apparently what the default setting is on my compute. As with Chris, mine's a laptop...
my sig most overwhelm everyone
and that's as big as you can go, most likely.....
Edit: or is it?
Lower your font size a bit please :laughing: JP
BTW Just found out my monitor's maximum support is 1280 by 800 px. Does anyone know what kind of cable I need to hook up my computer to a TV though?...I'm guessing an S-Video cable, but I'm not sure lol
yeah that would work, if you got the port in back
Hey Chris, just noticed on your sig....Why not put the small piccy at the top, and the other two at the bottom, in size order?....just an idea lol
Hey, like this it makes a 'C' for Chris:laughing:
Erm, yeah....maybe that was the idea hehehe
Instead of posting threads with stupid questions, I'll put them here.
Thanks in advance :thumbs:
-Nothing for now lol
That's what it was like, and I changed it lol.
BTW I made it spell 'C'...I guess that makes me like a super-genius or something :laughing:
I made my sig smaller yesterday (took the STi members off it). Is it good now Cliffy?
I was thinking more like......this......
I thought that might be too tall, but if no one minds it, I'll change it to that lol
Again....I think that's boarderline hehe....I edited my last post though as
I screwed it up..:thumbs:
Edit: But then...I guess it all depends on the txt you put in it too...lol
I'll change it to that...I'll take the text out unless I have a question lol
That's a nice good size now....
Yes, I saw that.....looks good! :thumbs:
Sorry, missed that one....that's also ALOT better now, thanx. Yours was one of the larger Sigs, if memory serves me hehe
Is my sig fine? :mrgreen:
Can I put that gif of the two chicks kissing back up? :hi:
Yours was ok...untill ya added to it earlier on lol.....slightly too large
And the main pic could do with shrinking very slightly:thumbs:
Here's what I think. Cliffy has tried to be nice and PM certain members
about the excessive size of their specific sig pics. Cliffy has also tried
to be nice by posting this non-threatening, generic, open ended thread
about the excessive size of some sig pics. However, some of you have
responded by enlarging your pics and then asking if it's okay. I think
Cliffy should just go through and DELETE all sig pics he finds to be
oversized. Then there would be no question. If I were Cliffy, some
members would have their sig pics deleted for a while just to prove a
The moral of the story is, certain people are taking advantage of the fact that Cliffy is a nice guy. It's time for Cliffy to squash out their sig pics and make examples of them. Got it? Good. Just so there are no questions, Greek Warrior, aka TheMemberWhoPostsNothingWorthwhile, would be the first on my list.
You're right hobo.....I'm far too nice lol....(wouldn't have heard that a few months back lol). As I stated on the opening post to this thread, I will be deleting all sigs that are too large, if said members do not respond to my request. If the repacement is still too large, that too will be deleted..etc etc etc :thumbs:
I think hobo has always thought you were a nice guy, he probably just thought you were an idiot at times. To give everyone a heads up what day or time are we looking at when your going to start deleted sigs (I know you said mines boarderline, but this is for anyone else who has this question since im on right now:thumbs: )
I have already started!:thumbs:
Is this in spite of my "big-ass sig to this smaller one" change ???:laughing:
I've always had good sig discipline. Everyone should follow my example.
Just felt the need to revive this thread. After an exchange of PMs between
myself and another member (of which I might add my initial PM was warranted
and the response it got was far from acceptable). I'm not going to edit the
rules, but just to make everybody aware, if a Mod notices a Signature that
is a bit on the large side, he will PM the member concerned and request
that they edit it. If they fail to edit it when they are next about, the
siggy has every possibility of being deleted. Rude PMs in response will not
It's my rules over everything.
Thanks for that useful insight. I have edited your signature....I very much doubt you need me to explain why.
I don't know why, but that really cracked me up!
errm...Is my sig alright?:hi:
