To all members,

Given that there have been some questions about images in signatures lately, I think it may be useful to clearly state the rule on signatures. As was indicated almost three weeks ago (on this thread,

Quote by shinsengumiTo clarify, signature images must use the sigimg tag, and the maximum size for all signature images is 486x60 pixels. This is non-negotiable, and as such all members with signatures that violate these guidelines are to make sure that their signatures do meet these standards as soon as possible.

Q: Are image tags allowed in signatures?
A: No. The only image allowed in a signature is the one image denoted by the sigimg tag.

Q: How large can a signature image be?
A: Signature images can be a maximum of 486 pixels in width and 60 pixels in height.

Q: How long can a signature be?
A: Four lines.

Q: Can I advertise a gallery item (e.g. my latest submission) in my signature?
A: Yes, as long as it does not violate any other guideline regarding signatures and signature images.

Signatures are supposed to be short notes appended to your posts to help personalize your message, which is why the 60 pixel signature image height and four line signature length restrictions were put into place. As members have noted themselves in a number of threads, large signature images and long signatures are often both distracting and obnoxious.

Please note that if you have a signature that does not meet the above guidelines (or if it violates the community guidelines in any other way), you will either be asked to remove it or will have it manually removed.

I hope that clarifies the rules regarding signatures and signature images. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Finally, this issue has been addressed. I feel that issues that are conveyed between the moderators in the moderator forum should be immediately brought to light if they impact all members of the community, thus reducing the blatant questioning that occurs by PM or guestbook.

Alright, I am using that now, so I am sure it is not a problem...
I really wished it was larger though, but rules are rules.

... the signature image doesnt show up. Is " [sigimg] " not the right command.

Try clearing your internet cache then re-upload the sig. You can also try hitting F5 to refresh the page. If that doesn't work try cutting the text you have in your sig space re-upload your sig and then paste the text back to where you want it. Otherwise just wait it will show up eventually. If you upload a sig you won't see immediate changes you have to wait atleast a day before it shows

Neither signature text or signature image works.
So I use another way:

nitram, your signature works. What you need to do is to turn on full signatures in your Minitokyo Options.

there is nothing to do with your signature, you are not getting credits I dunno for what reason, but if you read the first post, you will know that no longer are signatures using the [img] tags for larger ones than those of specified guideline sizes are allowed.

Hence, it will get deleted, if it violates the reasons given in the first post. Please read.

actually there is a funny thing with the sig img tag, u can only make signatures of 486x60 in size, otherwise it will say it is too long or big or small depending. Perhaps that is why your's would not show or upload depending on the nature of it.

as for credits, there was a news thread explaining if you make posts in the forums or anywhere else beside the chat lounge with lesser than 50 letters/characters long you get deducted credits instead. So make a longer post or something as to which more than 50 letters long
