No, he's not. Dr. Zoidberg, Wraggster, and Nyarlathotep might be able to help you out though. Your sig is way too big, and will need to be changed. The forum rules explain the sig restrictions.

The avatars in these forums automatically re-size to 120x120. In order to keep your avatar looking correct, you need to open it in a photo-editing program, and increase the canvas-size to 120x120.

Ok, first , thanks for the help people

The signature is no longer a problem, I changed it

About the nickname I'd like to change it to orochistyle , cause that's the name I use in other development forums

That sig is absolutley ridiculous.
It just crashed Mozilla Firefox.

Admin Note: Usually right now I'd tell this guy to read the rules, but the fact that the sig rules are under "Forum News" with a description which makes no suggestion that that's where the rules are. And the fact that its halfway down the page under topics about upgrades and errors make me believe its a very easy rule to miss.
Its easy for us who've been here for ages to take it for granted, but perhaps stickying the rules threads, and changing the description/name of that forum would be a good idea for the n00bs?

Clearly labelled in a rules section so nobody misses the fact that there are rules? Or stickied in the dcemulation and homebrew games forum, based on the presumption that that is the first place everybody will go?
I know a lot of people dont read rules anyway, but it's made worse if you just stick them anywhere and dont bother to make it obvious where "anywhere" is.
I've been here for over 2 years, and didnt know there was a rules thread in that forum, so I think that proves my point.
