Hard limits against signatures has been set. Despite rules against large signatures, too many seem to carry them. Since it's easier to automatically enforce, although forces less flexibility, following changes has been made:
Maximum of 3 images can be inside a signature.
The signature image height may be no greater 400 pixels.
You can have maximum of 5 links in your signature.
You can have maximum of 10 lines in your signature.
This does not mean you are allowed to abuse the current limits to the maximum. Current level of limits are set to allow some flexibility, such as 3 small images instead of 1 large image. Please be considerate when making your signatures. It is an annoyance to others to have a huge signature. While the personal "x" button to hide a member's signature or to hide all members' signature does exist, guests do not. Also, it is a hassle to require such steps.
Failure to follow signature rules will result in signatures being removed. On repeated offenses, their signature privileges will be revoked.
