Signature & Avatar Rules

Please note that all of our Signature & Avatar Rules apply, whether images are uploaded to the forums or linked off your own web host. We do not allow offensive or inappropriate signature content. Failure to comply with our signature rules will result in your signature being removed without notice. Further warnings related to your signature will result in the suspension of your account.

Signature Rules
=========================

* Max total signature area dimensions (includes both images and text): 500 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall
* Max total images allowed (including blinkies/smilies/signs/sigx/etc.): 8 images max
* Max combined file size of ALL images, blinkies, smilies, signs, etc.: 150 KB
* No excessive animation or any use of Shockwave Flash (.swf) in signatures
* No offensive or objectionable material in signatures
* No advertising or linking to other sites/forums allowed in images. You may only link to charitable, personal homepages, blogs, official sites and non-profit websites using text size=2 or smaller.
* We do not allow linking in signatures to other forums that compete with any Otakon board.

Here's the maximum area that your ENTIRE signature should fit into:


Here are some examples of valid and conforming signature layouts (you don't have to follow these):

* 2 images side-by-side. Each image: 250x200 in dimensions, 75KB in file size each
Total: 250 in image width X 2 images = 500 pixels wide, 2 images X 75KB = 150KB
* 1 image @ 500x200 up to 150KB
* 1 image 500x175 up to 150KB and 2 small lines of text under image, not exceeding 25 pixels in height
Total: 2 lines of text, assuming 25 pixels in height + 175 pixels for sig image = 200 pixels tall
* 1 image 500x185 130KB, 4 blinkies side by side under main sig image (each @ 5KB 125x15)
Total: 185 pixels in sig image height + 15 blinkie image height = 200 pixels tall, 4 blinkies at 125 width each = 500 pixels wide, 4 blinkies X 5KB each + 130KB sig image = 150KB total file size
* Text-only signature not exceeding 500 pixels wide and 300 pixels tall

These signature rules are much simpler to understand and offer a good balance by allowing artistic creativity of our members and constraints of Internet connection speeds.

Avatar Rules
=================

* Image dimensions must not exceed 100x100 pixels
* Avatars should be no greater than 400 KB
* If sounds are used in your flash avatar, they may only play on click; no auto/mouseover sounds

These rules are to make these boards a better place for everyone to visit. The forum moderators and administrators are on hand to answer your questions.

If you have any questions, please post a question in the Help and Feedback. We thank you all for your cooperation and continued support through our changes to keep these boards at its best.
