Title: Signature
Post by: Dust Devil on October 16, 2009, 01:09:04 PM
I was wondering why is it allowed to put only 200 characters in the signature? It doesn't make any sense to me. In most cases you can't even use a line from a movie because it's too long, especially in addition to a picture whose link takes you 50% of space.

I was wondering if that could be turned off?

I thought it was 500. Did they change it?

No, it's definitely 200.

Here's the counter for my sig:
Quote
Max 200; characters remaining: 52


As you can see it also counts in the white spaces as well as the punctuation signs under ''character''.

It was significantly more. Was it edited recently?

Not that I know of. I remember it was always a silent battle with the counter when changing the signature.

A chilling prospect indeed.

Glad to see you're having fun Mr. Fritz, but this is important. I'll ask you for just a little seriousness, if it's not a problem.

Be cool.

I thought it was 500.

That would be feasible.

The best thing would be to just lose the counter.

You can have a huge picture but can't have two sentences in your signature... Where's the logic in that?

The post counter?

I'm with you on that.
It has only caused arguements in the past anyway.

No, the ''200 characters in a signature'' counter... But thanks for backing me up, amigo. :D

Well, CAL has never been one to eliminate the limit on anything in the first place.
I remember an incident a few years back where I asked about the PM per hour limit.
Didn't get very far there.

Hopefully he'll oblige us with this. I think of how many times I couldn't put a quote from a movie in the signature cause it was ''too booku''...

Has anyone at least asked Cal about this?

I believe so, he probably forgot...

But remember Harmonica: there's always next year, so you keep playing! :D
