I understand the reason for not allowing the IMG tag in the sig line. I've been to a number of forums where every thread is bloated because people have huge pics in their sig line.

However, I've also been to forums where flash is allowed (it's a flash forum), but their size is limited to 15k (strictly enforced). Is there some way for the software of staff to control inserting small IMG's in the sig line? Since your looking at links for the IMG, there shouldn't be a bandwidth issue. I'm just trying to put a linked graphic that's 16x11.http://members.home.net/geneb1955/images/audio.gif (http://members-http-1.rwc1.sfba.home.net/geneb1955/audio/sigwav.wav)

I think that a standard 32x32 max wouldn't be unreasonable (but hey, I don't run the board). http://members.home.net/geneb1955/images/32x32.gif (this size)

As it stands right now it is either On or Off, there is no option to control sizes.

From the site administration standpoint, is this something that you would consider opening up to see if voluntary compliance would work at keeping the size reasonable?

Instead of Images in the sig line a better option is the use of Avatar icons under your name.

But we dont like those either... They bloat the system. TFL is unlike other forums do to its shear size. Not so much what you see - but everything that goes on around it. We have more hits than you would believe.
