    Makes sense.... And if applied to the 10 lines thing, then 10 lines is, in fact, 160px tall (not 156, like I said at the bottom here ).

    And dang, my browser won't select transparent images in a way that shows how large they are. :<

    Ah, that's what those are called....

    In this case (with the text highlighting), I'm getting 95px for you, Mr. Slowpoke.

    Are pictures like these allowed?

    I've been getting some comments (most joking) about it creeping people out, due to the fact that it actually tells you your computer's information (Everyone sees it differently due to differing IP addresses, ISPs, etc). I have no access to anyone's information besides my own.

    Also, the image changes every time, so my signature's size changes along with it.

    I guess I'll be the one measuring them then ^_^ (Opera doesn't select images like that? Shame.)

    I dunno. But the way it is right now, with the blue man in the trenchcoat holding the sign up, it's 157 px tall.

    As well, if you know it creeps people out, why are you putting it in your signature?

    Explain this. To my knowledge, the only issue we have with spoiler tags is when they are used for images, because the images still load when in a spoiler tag.

    What is the reasoning behind not allowing even text to be included in a spoiler tag?

    Because once it's open, it's open? If people put floods of text behind the spoilers, there's no way to close it.

    Still wrong. They're upgrading the forum to vB4, and the spoilers will be broken when they upgrade. Or something like that - one of the admins said something about it.

    *edit* okay, found it. Here it is:

    And what was said before. Spoilers shouldn't be in signatures anyway. Signatures aren't meant to be that long - they're supposed to be a small part of each of your posts. It really becomes a problem when your signature blows up to the size of a full post. Really, if you need a spoiler to hide a grossly large portion of text in your signature, you should be questioning whether that piece of text needs to be there anyway.

    Okay, now it's telling me "LOL I'm hacking! JK". I'm going to vote for no.

    *edit2* On the subject of overly large signatures:

    Satoshi-kun, with your spoiler open, the signature is 719 px wide and 244 px tall. Both dimensions are too big. If the spoiler were to be removed, it would be 164 px tall, which is acceptably tall but still too wide.

    Roronoa Zorua, yours is 198 px tall. Width (400 px) is okay, because your text has different aligns.

    The spoilers being broken will be fixed, that's not the only reason.

    Meh... It really isn't, but if you want me to remove it, I will.

    Edit: it told me the same thing just now. It randomly generates that third line based on five different custom quotes.

    At least mine doesn't say "Guys, guys, I know where you live" like some do.

    Edit 2: As for the creep-out factor, I'm kinda creeped out about that myself. I don't think that Danasoft is a problem, but other companies that make those could use them to steal information.

    Come to think of it, I'm not liking it myself.

    O_O That's twice the size of mine, and from what I can tell without print-screening it, one and a half times the size of the limit, at least.

    Edit: It's 259 pixels tall, so either one or both of the quotes or all the images have to go.

    I'm getting a height of 257, but now that I think about, quote boxes add about the equivalent of another line of text under them, so it's more than that.

    You could always do away with the quote boxes. If you did something like this:


    my shop hiya!
    "water spout ninjask remoraids? I don't think those 2 are compatable." - venom
    "That said, ROMS ARE FROWNED ON :| FROWN FROWN FROWN WATCH ME FROWN " - Transfinite


    it would end up 150px tall... except if the text wraps around (it's 674px wide), which would add another line, making it 166px tall. Shrinking the Corsola sounds good.

    I am fairly certain my sig is in violation but I would like to keep it looking the same does anyone know how to shrink the banner?
    Is there anything worse than being all alone in the night?

    Yes... being all alone in a crowd.
