The size is the problem, regardless of the contents.

And the animated graphic in the signature. "A discreet, non-animated graphic is acceptable."

There is no way to make my signature smaller without removing the graphics. And I don't see where the graphics are a problem.

If it's because one of the graphics is animated, then what about animated avatars?
The guidelines specify the total size of the signature, and they apply to you, too. If the graphics boost the height beyond the guidelines, they become a problem.

The simplest method to become compliant is to drop either the animated book reading smiley or the ticker.

I do not recommend staying non-compliant.

If my animated smiley is a problem, it's time to remove all the non-discreet animated avatars as they can be in your face.

So why again are we going overboard here?

Animated avatars may be next, if enough people -- such as yourself -- demand it.

Stop being deliberately dense, Jon. The total height of your signature is a problem. How you reduce it is up to you, but you are expected to reduce it.

As mentioned, the guidelines apply to you, too.

So this is how you treat long term members by deleting their signatures? This is the best way to lose members big time. There was nothing wrong with my signature. I had that animated smiley for long enough that if anyone thought it was a problem, it should have been mentioned long before now.

Whoever is complaining about our signatures being a problem can just turn them off and let the rest of of be. Thank you for nothing at all.

So you change the rules just to screw with us. I get it. You want us gone.

The new rules are being way too strict. Things were fine the way there were. There was no good reason to change things. What was the reason for screwing with the signatures? I can understand signatures that were excessively large. But mine wasn't and I can see a lot of others that you'll be screwing with that also are not too large,

See first post of this topic.

Yes, that is exactly the problem. Everybody agreed that large signature have become a problem, even you agree Jon, but as long as we didn't define "too large", it was subject to everyone's personal interpretation.

We are not "screwing" with anyone. The guidelines apply to everyone, long term member or newbie, team member or not.

I was told by by HarryT that my signature was too large. So I made it as small as possible and no word was said since. That was fine. Then along comes this thread and all of a sudden, it's too large still even though I made it as small as possible and didn't get one word of it's still too big. So how is this being fair?

Jon,

As I have already told you by PM, your discussion with me was under the old guidelines. We now have new guidelines and your signature did not comply with them.

There's really no point in continuing to discuss this. It's a "done deal" and isn't going to change. The new guidelines apply equally to everybody and are certainly not targetted specifically at you.

I'm not saying they are targeted at me. I'm saying they are unfair to everyone thanks to a few who want to spoil things for the rest of us.
