We have adjusted the rules and guidelines for signitures ,so hopefully there will be no confusion about the size and content.
To make the forums easier to read and quicker to load, can members please keep their signatures to a maximum of three lines of text and use only small non-animated guinea pig smilies. No bigger than 30 pixels in height and 350 the maximum width. We will shortly be providing a tutorial, so our members can make their own guinea pig smilies. There is an option to turn signitures off in your profile, if you prefer not to see any signitures on the forum.
We are sorry that some members may be dissapointed because they are using date banners, but we needed to place very clear guidelines, so we arn't sending out mixed messengers to other members.
I'm afraid not Vegan. We have had a few members being upset when we've politely asked them to remove larger signitures, so we needed to make it very clear about the size limit. I'll be making a special page about making piggy smilies, ( many thanks to Merry ) and maybe even add a few piggy smilies on the page that I'd be happy to host.
Don't worry Katelynn. E-mail me the date of your sweet 16 and I will make sure I post a message on your specail day!!! Or maybe a post in chatter box counting down!!! So you will still be happy counting down to your 16th birthday.
I think that even though it is a shame for people to take off their date banners and big siggys it is a good thing for the boards. I like to look at siggy and avetars as they tell me visually who I am talking to on a post... and would not want to turn them off... but randome pictures that don't have anything to do with pigs do get a little annoying! Look forwards to the tutorial going up because then there will be lots of sweetie pie piggy siggys!!!!
Aww Thats a shame It never bothered me or slowed the speed of the boards. I tried making those little piggies Susie sent me and I had no clue how to post them! lol Is the avatar size going to be limited too? I know what you mean Susie. and thanks! Its on the 26th of July lol I can't wait for the special pig page either comeng up
