    Some signatures here are ridiculous in file size, gifs especially. I've seen several over 5mb and even one at 38mb.
    These large images cause extremely slow load times for threads, 30+ seconds in some cases. So now there are some rules when using a signature,

    - Signature images can be a maximum of 4 megabytes
    - GIF's should not be annoying (very flashy, etc)

    All signatures are also forced to be 250px maximum in height.
    There is a new warning in place for those who break these rules. You won't be warned if your signature breaks these rules prior to this thread, but please do remove it or compress it using ezgif.
    These rules are also shown on the signature edit page.

    Thank you.
