I punked RobA some time ago about the possibilty of not counting characters when you make the signature. Now, I know he and Arcana have been busy getting everything to work - kudos to them - and it looks like everything is running smothly again... so now I discreetly tap them on the shoulder with my small issue :)

The problem is that since the signature counts the HTML characters as well if you have a handfull of links you run out of text quickly. My signature below is the max size I can have right now and I would like to link to more stuff :)

And if there is concerns about people having to large signatures, then we could use an honor system off max 5 lines or 80 pixels (just an example) to keep it "discreet" - I see no problems in this forum with people respecting that :)

I've increased the non-displayed character lmit, but the visible limit is still set at 500 (Which should be more than enough... mine has 411 in it).

Yeah I burnt my chars so made up an image of all the static text. Its a problem for the links tho I agree. This is something that could be partially sorted with a script but I have lost script access since the host move. Robs sig is pretty big tho so the new size is probably well enough.

I'm not sure Rob's sig is a measure of what we mere mortals can do ;) ... but the fact that only visible chars are counted should solve most peoples problems, its the links that "kills" the signature :)

have the system reverted to the old rules? ... cause I added a little text (se below) and now it says its to big :( ... I use 202 chars or 244 with spaces.

Try it now, Tilt. There was a change in the system settings.

It should now allow 500 chars displayed, 5000 chars total.
