:hiya: Just a friendly reminder to all and sundry to keep your sig blocks nice and concise for the good of the board!

Just because you can post a bigger image doesn't mean you should! We've found that, if we set limits on sig image sizes through the admin panel, the board often refuses to let anyone post anything, whether or not it's within the parameters set. We don't want that to happen, so we rely on our members to voluntarily keep their sig blocks to sizes that don't take up too much space or slow things down for people with slower connections. If you're in doubt about whether your sig block pic is within the limits, right click it and select Properties--that will show you its file size and dimensions. If it's too big, please modify it with a photo editing program or find a different one!

Thanks!
