1. Keep pictures 200x200 pixels or Smaller.

http://img130.exs.cx/img130/7624/200box3eu.jpg

200 * 200 is a damned big file, you don't need anymore than this, and you are being given TWO of these images. As long as the two edges do not exceed a total of 200*200 the picture is fine, anything exceeding it will be removed.

You can, use both your image files to make one large image, by using both images right next to each other.

http://img130.exs.cx/img130/8849/dbox10xl.jpghttp://img130.exs.cx/img130/5239/dbox29pu.jpg

If you have an image that is too big, and have no way of resizing the image your self use these tags to force it down in size

[*img200] image link [/img200*]

Since this only shrinks one edge, and not both, I suggest you use some kind of screen grab (Print Screen on PC, Shift+Command+3 on a Mac) to check the actual size of the image as it appears.

2. No more than 3 outside pictures.

Images that you add from the Serebii.net archive, such as episode guide images, or sprites from the avatar list, will not be counted in this, as they come directly from the site server anyway. These 3 outside links obviously make up your image and banner limit.

2a. Give Credit Where it is due

Art Theft is no longer tolerated on the boards. If you have images in your sig that you are taking from web-sites, that are not made by yourself, you must give credit to whoever created them. This includes any images that you have been made in the Fanart forums.

3. No more than 6 links. (Includes Serebii.net/Serebii Forums ones)

Having too many links wont get your sig deleted, but you will receive a PM warning you to change it. If it's not changed, then it will be edited and random links removed until there are only three. This includes using pictures and banners as links.

This rule has now been increased, you are allowed up to SIX links in your sig.

4. No more than 1 Banner in a sig, no bigger than 468x100.

http://img130.exs.cx/img130/7533/webbanner6cj.jpg

As long as the two edges do not exceed a total of 468*100 the banner is fine, anything exceeding it will be removed. In the case of having no other images (ie, no 200*200 images, no sprites, etc) you can have another banner. But only one.

To surmise:
1 Banner, 2 images - OR -
2 Banners, no other images


5. No Sigs with Caps purely, no text berating any person or any site or anything.

Insulting a member, group of members, moderators, admins, the webmaster, whatever, will get your sig removed and depending on the severity, a warning.

6. A Limit on Color.

If you can't find a colour that's right for you use this HTML True Type Colour Chart (http://www.theodora.com/html_colors.html).

Use a maximum of FIVE colours, and remember that not all colours are visible on all styles.

7. No Large Text.

Size 1 - This is allowed
Size 2 - This is allowed
Size 3 - This is allowed
Size 4 - This is allowed in a very small amount, such as a name at the top of your sig
Size 5 and above - This is not allowed


8. No more than 8 smilies

If you want to put smilies in your sig, you need to find their exact url and use IMG tags to put them in.

9. No Images saved in Bitmap (BMP) Format. No Large Animated GIFs

Bitmaps are massive files, and on Dialup, a killer in loading time. Please save any images you intend to use in your sig as JPEG, PNG or GIF. Programs such as Paint, which save jpegs as low quality, should use PNG format instead.

Large Animated GIFs, approximatly 500k or above, will also be removed. This includes those Rip-Offs from Anime which are very common in signatures. This also means that a total amount of animated gifs cannot reach over 500kbs. If you are unsure, find out the file size of each gif and add them together. If it's over 500, then it's too much.

10. No Unnecessary Stacking

By this we mean putting lots of information in your sig, with lots of space and new lines so it spreads out and fills lots of space needlessly. Put small images next to each other one one line, and don't make lists when you can use commas to separate words in a sentence.

-------


Now, this is a topic for you to ask about your sig, and whether it is allowed or not. it is NOT a place to get your sig rated, it is NOT a place to request a sig, we do NOT make your trainer cards or banners.

To anyone else who decides to help out, please follow the rules and make every effort to be sure all the rules are being followed.

Is my sig ok? o.O

Jay
30th March 2005, 12:27 PM
wait until a MODERATOR replies and tells you otherwise.
May I ask why?

I'm getting kind of tired with this "let's treat moderators better than everyone else!" crap that the moderators themselves are enforcing. If I want to help someone, then I'm damn well going to help someone. I know the signature rules inside out. Does that mean I can't respond to anything here? Some of the moderators have broken the signature rules too. What does that say about them?

Edit: I don't know if I'm allowed to say this, since obviously moderators are the only people that can have a say in how/where to update/edit things and whatnot, but you should mention a thing or two about the type of picture file that you're allowed to place in your signature. Such as the no .bmp rule, as an example, unless that was - for whatever reason - deleted? It shouldn't have been if so; uncompressed images are killers on 56k folks.

Because I noticed a number of people replying and saying "yes it's fine" when infact they weren't. I'm not saying that other people can't help, but people should atleast have a mod confirm it's fine too.

As for your second point, I only updated this thread because I thought the last one was getting too big, and that the sig rules weren't getting noticed enough. I copied the rules from another topic, so I missed out the rule regarding bitmaps. Thank you for pointing it out, i'll add it now.

Yellow Mit - Fine.

I have no doubt mine's okay. :p

You can aslo have images set up with a 400x100 banner on top, and two 200x200 under it. I'll get a example.

EDIT: Zark it. they wont upload. I think you understand though.

You just have to change the trainer card to something other than bmp. and then youll be fine.

Cold Fusion - Miseed you out, it's fine.

oddish_Rulzzz - Both your trainer card and mini banner are bitmap images, please change them.

In order to change a bitmap, open it up in any graphics prgram (Paint, Photoshop, PSP), go to Save As, and change the format of the save, it's a drop down list beneath the name text box .

30th March 2005, 11:18 PM
I know my sig is following the rules, but I need to check up on one thing. As you can see, I went ahead and used the 2 image rule to make a large "banner". However, according to what you said, I can just make it one image, correct? It's true I will only be allowed that one image since it's pretty much two combinded, but I want to make sure since dividing my banners into two images all the time is annoying. ^^;

Hikari Tenshi
31st March 2005, 12:18 AM
Is mine ok? I have a question, why doesn't my banner show up?

RaZoR LeAf
31st March 2005, 12:43 AM
Shigeru-kun - no, you keep it as two pictures. If we said you could combine it, we'd have people running around with two 200*400 pictures.

mudkip_luv - yes, and perhaps the link is broken. Check the url to see if the image is still there, or if it's on a site that allows direct linking.

Umm..It says "Get your Signature checked", so I guess that's like a checkup to make sure that a person's signature is okay? Umm..I think mine's fine. I created my own "banner" thing. Uhh, the Avatar & Siggy Club banner was created by someone else though. So I guess I'm just getting mine approved? Is it okay?

Wolf Goddess - Fine

Groudon80 - Any PC or Mac comes with a basic graphics program.

Ninetales - Freaky, but acceptable

Kamon - The image in your signature either refuses to load or is so big a file it's still loading. Fix it then come ask again.

suikun_incarnate_shana - Fine

Poocyena - Your banner is 2 pixels to wide, and yes, I am going to be that
picky. It's also unnecessarily stacked. Put your trainer card next to your poochyena image and the next under that so it doesn't take up so much room.

H@UNT3R: Yours is ok.

mudkip_luv: Yours is alright.

Poocheyna: That's alright. If we have to worry about 2 pixels, then we're all in trouble. :P

RandomCharizard: No, your banner is 474x133, which is over the 468x100 limit. You can put your banner in the banner frames by going [*banner] [*/banner]. Or you can resize it yourself and make it 468x100. :)

Is my signature ok? And is the Ho-oh image too much?

RaZoR LeAf
1st April 2005, 7:14 PM
The pokemon sprites are outside links, so count as individual images each and you thefore have a total of 7 outside images, so no your sig is not fine. The ho-oh gif is 210*210 so it needs to be trimmed down. You can fix both by using sprites from the serebiiforums avatar list, and by using the img200 tags as explained in the first post.

Having too many links wont get your sig deleted, but you will receive a PM warning you to change it. If it's not changed, then it will be edited and random links removed until there are only three. This includes using pictures and banners as links.

V.D. you read that part wrong. You've only got one link. The images you have aren't clickable, so they aren't being used as links. I don't have the authority to say that your signature is okay though, I just wanted to help you understand that.

Wonder when we'll get a reply.

raikou_25 - As Shining Mew said, your last image is not only too big, but is also a bitmap. You're also stacking unnecessarily, so put the image tags of your two smaller pictures next to each other, so the images appear on one line.

cowgirl - Your banner is a bitmap, please reformat

Darkest Umbreon - Yep, fine

Oh (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showpost.php?p=551196).

(That lee-way rule was made when I pointed out that Serebii broke the signature rules back then.) :cool:

You guys need to stop thinking moderators are godly or whatever. They break rules. They make mistakes. They're people. Get it through your head and stop kissing up to them all the time. It sickens me that this is such a commodity here (and anywhere where there are forums, basically).

Tamer Dragon- According to the rules, only one banner is allowed in your sig. So yeah, please remove one. =X

In the case of having no other images (ie, no 200*200 images, no sprites, etc) you can have another banner. But only one.
So, which is it? Would I be able to add another banner?

And there should be a limit on length. I have seen some exceedingly long sigs, but with no images, just lots of text.

AND a hard-and-fast file-size limit for images.

RaZoR LeAf
7th April 2005, 11:38 AM
You CAN have 2 banners in your sig, since the rules FT is going from are redundant and not properly thought through. Sorry FT and whoever actually wrote them, but I did make a mention of this in the mod forum.

As a side note, large Animated GIFs, approximatly 500k or above, will also be removed. This also includes those Rip-Offs from Anime which are very common in signatures.

umbreon 11 - How you fix your sig is up to you, just so long as it is fixed.

Lord of Slug - They count as 6 separate outside images, so you need to loose 3 of them.

Vidd: Yours is alright.

Sakura: No, it goes over the 468x100 limit, and doesn't add up to 568 total, it goes over. The one you have in your sig right now though is ok.

DSMaster: It looks like you have 3 banners in your sig, but if you count the ones on the top, and bottom as regular pictures, then it's ok. The whole sig is a little long though.

Tohru Honda: You only have one picture in your sig, and it's way too big. Shrink it down, or get another pic, and it'll be ok.

How we do it in America, and on the Forum Guild, we manually check the file size of each image. And I know for a fact that some work done in Macromedia Fireworks MX can be as much hell as bitmap images, and they're in .png format. Try a light-coloured 200 × 50 banner and the size is 58 kilobytes.

I suggest an actual file size restraint of around 50 kilobytes, inclusive of dimensions, of course.

At any rate, is mine okay?

Kawaiiest.Combusken: This started now, with this thread and the new sig rules. Someone may have taken it out because it was too large in KB size. To check KB size, right click on the picture and go to Properties. Then look for KB, and that's the size. (Btw, the one image in your sig is over 200x200 right now. Use the Img200 tags to shink it a bit. :))

It says it's 650328 bytes. So in KB, it would be 650.328? If so, how can I reduce its KB size so that it was under 500?

Oh and Kenshin (Shinta) Himura, your animations really slow this page down...and I have a fast connection.

So the Dratini's are fine.

Kawaiiest.Combusken: I don't know how to really make the KB smaller. Probably the person who made the animation can lower it with a program or something/ I'm really not sure.

squirtletheturtle: Your sig is ok. And about my sig, if you look in the first post, it says this: "...Images that you add from the Serebii.net archive, such as episode guide images, or sprites from the avatar list, will not be counted in this, as they come directly from the site server anyway." So the Dratini's are fine.

Kawaiiest.Combusken: I don't know how to really make the KB smaller. Probably the person who made the animation can lower it with a program or something/ I'm really not sure.
huh i looked at the urls and the left is on photo bucket and the right is on pokemon2000 O.O

Rainbowtiger/Caluchu: It's within the sig rules, so it's good. :)

Caterpie: It's good.

squirtletheturtle: I changed the 1st Dratini to one of the serebii forums ones now, and that makes it good.

Dr. Salvador: This really isn't a place to test out sigs. If you want to see what your sig will look like before you finalize it, go into the Edit Signature area, and change what you want and then click "Preview Signature" and whatever is in that preview is what will show up under your posts.

Coriolis Effect: It's fine. You have 3 images which is the max you can have, so it's good.

I don't see why it wouldn't. But that's not my decision.

Is mine okay? I have alot of text...

squirtletheturtle: Yeah, that was my bad. :P I thought that one of them was the serebii forums link, but it wasn't. :P It is now though so it's good. :P

WaterLight: Yours is fine.

Batesy: Yours is fine, but you're right, it is a little long. Though it doesn't really break a rule, it still kinda gets bothersome when people have to scroll down farther to the next post. If you could change some of it so that it's shorter, that would be good, but if you don't, then that's ok too. It's just a suggestion for the better. :P

Caterpie: The Animation is 924 KB's which is almost 400 over the limit. :P So that has to be changed or it has to go. :P (Animations are very picky because they are one of the main things that are slow to load on slower connections.)

squirtletheturtle: Yours is fine.
