Although the Forum Rules say a sig must be equal to/less than 480 pixels wide, the actual number acceptable to the board is 470. If someone could edit the rules to reflect this (or, if they want more work, edit the forum code to match the rule), that would be more accurate and save members a bit of a headache.

Thanks. :)

Thanks for catching that, although I'm assuming you meant 570?

Yeah, 570. My bad. :)

I didn't notice the effect until I had attention specifically called to it. I think we're okay keeping it at 580. Unless it appears worse for others than it does to me for some reason?

Well, the main thing was that I had to edit my new sig three more times because the system literally wouldn't accept a 580-pixel-width image (as in, error message).

I checked the rules to see what my limits were, and based the image scaling on that. As it turns out, scaling it down 10x3 pixels distorts the curve, so I had to reload the WIP file and crop instead.

Since I use a Linux-based system (and am nowhere near pro at image-editing), this is a bit more of a headache than just opening Microsoft Paint. I figured a more exact figure would be helpful to others, hence the topic. ^^;;

Y'know, I had the totally wrong idea about the nature of this problem. :B

Honestly, I'd never have known if it didn't actually happen to me.

If you had asked me yesterday, I'd have guessed that it'd be like avatar size, where the only way you'd know you went over the limit was either if you read the rules or if you got a PM from a mod. This seems doubly odd 'cuz people stretch out the width of threads with oversized images all the freakin' time!

But, hey, it is what it is.
