Default Egregious Signatures

Hello Admin,

Could we do a line limit on signatures, or overall signature size?

The large photos, and lists of cars mods, factory option, what their grandmother ate for breakfast day before yesterday really hinders the reading of the forum, and make short one or two sentence responses take up an entire screen of text.

I remember the days when actual mods were listed in signatures, not 'packages'. no one cares what packages you have on your car. seriously.

your sig made me lul.

srs, dont know why people need to make such in-depth signatures listing the options that the car came with, mods, their boats, bicycles, kids tonka toys, family names, etc. they list it all out when they get new mods anyway..amirite?

I don't understand the point of signatures. I mean I could drivel on and on about how I've replaced the whole front end of my car, or how my car has the SMG (woowowowowoow)

But honestly, no one cares. At all.

we actually do have a forum rule regarding signature sizes

here's the rules page:

5Series.net - Forums - Announcements in Forum : Frequently Asked Questions

"...Take a look at the area on the left side of the screen where the member name, avatar, and other information is listed. The signature height should be no bigger than that height. In other words, if you post a one word (or one line) reply in a topic, the bottom of your signature should not be lower than the bottom of the "Location:" line. That would allow for a 600x100 pic and few lines of text to still fit. If no pic is used, then clearly, more lines of text can be used if needed. If you want to test your signature size, we have a test forum to do so, here..."

Some are fairly amusing to read through but definitely annoying when you're trying to get through a thread's comments and have to continuously scroll down to get through them

There are settings that allow you to block both signatures and avatars.
