I'm so glad I'm not on dial up....that signature is way too big size (not dimension but kb wise).. I think I'm going to pm an admin to get my name changed too ^_^

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.
The homebrew games forum is the first forum on the list - anyone coming here from the front page will go there first.

The rules are also posted in multiple other forums.

I even stickied a topic reminding nulltards about the signature rules as I know some losers flock to Null from other sites and thats the first forum they see - if someone unstickied it thats a problem with the current null moderators...

The sig rules are also spammed on everyone who doesn't adhere to them - I'd say its pretty damn obvious what they are and short of replacing the DCEmu Forums picture at the top of every forum page I can';t see how it could be any clearer or more obvious to anybody.

Having said that I still can't see that dudes signature so I can't do anything about it :dontknow:

If I cut and paste it into a new broswer window I get some lame 'pay for surveys' site

Its not like I'm the only admin on the site is it? Surely someone other than me can see it and deal with it?

I did it because I made a huge list of rules that is announced at the top. However, in light of the situation, I'll rename the topic just so people won't miss it and can't complain that they're were no rules. So Null is covered.

Just stick it in an exisiting sticky / announcement - I don't actually care, and people will point out rule breakers anyway. I'm just making the point there is very little that could be done to make the sig rules MORE notciable than they currently are.

If Boneycork had never broken any of the rules here I'd probably care more about his thoughts on the matter too...

You have a 1.5Mb sig thats 1.4Mb over the limit and the dimensions are out of the limit. You still haven't changed them, atleast stick with the rules before asking admins for favours

I would, but the voices in my head tell me that your sig is stupidly large and should be immediately removed, and that Mugen doesn't count as programming.

Sorry, the voices in my head are very insistent about this.

this thread is one of the funniest threads I've had the pleasure to read through in a while! I'd like to thank Nyar and dcemuler specifically for making me laugh in this thread. dcemuler for blatantly breaking the sig rules and not getting why he is breaking the rules, aswell as for not pm'ing an admin, which is what was suggested and what he shouldve done. Nyar for just being down right hilarious with his nonchalant responses.

Yeah, but he saved it before Nyar posted :o. Though Nyar's had trouble seeing the sigs as it is...

Yes it was an animation but it was black & white

The colorful one is about 12MB , but i never used that one as a signature :D

As az_bont said, my new signature is much smaller (140x105 - 5.1KB and it HAS COLOR :mrgreen: )

I didn't pm Nyarlathotep because he already knows I want to change my nick

But if it's needed I'll pm him but I don't know if it's necessary :mrgreen:
