    It's easy it would seem. The max signature banner limitations are specific. Whatever image(s) you have in the signature banner space in your posts should not exceed the limitation set forth by Auran in the Auran Trainz Code of Conduct.

    Cheers

    PerRock, Your banner fits the color 800x100 pixel template in post #9 in this thread...

    You have evidently used the max # of links allowed in the banner....

    You done good!

    What is the point of having a SET size if you can go a few pixels over?

    NO!

    Because someone else, would say "can I have a image that is 102 x 806 pixels", then another user will want 103 x 807, and so on & so on.

    In that case, get the owner's permission to use their picture, and reduce it to the size that fits the guidelines.

    Perhaps step by step instructions on how to use your handy dandy template would help...

    I don't know why this thread is still here, never mind a sticky.

    There are so many oversize banners on these forums, but most of the owners appear to have "get out of jail" cards and carry on regardless.

    Simple. Print the sig out on a 1:1 scale, and hold it against the screen over the template.

    Default I'm not very creative...

    ...as you can tell by my banner.

    I used mspaint, Attributes/width 800, height 100, then used the bucket fill tool and selected a color.

    For my banner, I found a drawing on the web, re-sized it and edited some of the lines and rivets lost in the resize. Its 383x97. The code calls for banner size, and signature is not mentioned. I think it totals about 407x 117...

    Meanwhile...

    I'm trying to figure out how to make a link to ImageShack using the I.S. logo, as a link...the logo is hosted on IS, and I can't figure the url code to make it a link, so I have to do that in a two step process.

    Hey All

    There are no get out of jail free cards here. You report them, we'll deal with them. It may not happen instantly but we mods will deal with it.

    Cheers

    I would normally prefer a standard picture for Image Shack, because when I click on an Image Shack thumbnail, ads pop up - even with the pop-up blocker turned on.

    AJ_Fox, you claim that their are no "get-out-of-free" cards, I beg to differ - wait on second thought scrap that, as it looks like this person's signature of a railway level crossing of a height 150x has been replaced/deleted. But he/she had it for quite a while, I would say close to a year.

    By the way, what's the go (meaning in copyright) with using Trainz avatars in the signature space?

    That all sounds very good, I remember Nat saying the same thing a few months ago, and I'm sure it what Auran want to see you saying.

    But there is one user who has a banner over half a meg, and I've reported it 3 times in the last few months and it's still there.
    Now if I remember correctly, one of the Mods said that whenever a report it made, it goes to all Mods.
    Is this correct?
    If so, how does this user get away with it, with so many Mods aware of the infringement?
    Hence my use of the term "get out of jail" card.
    I see no other logical reason why some can get away with it, and others can't.

    And no, I'm not going to tell you who it is.
    Take a look for yourself.
    If you have a record of who's been reported in the past, it'll be there in your records, and it won't have been sorted.

    I've given up trying to enforce a rule that neither Auran or the Mods seem to bother with.

    Smiley.
