It's the forum rule,so respect it.
It is 700x200 becouse if it were bigger,the page would load slower.
And 120kb from same reason.
Just think if everybody would have a 20mb picture or even bigger,one page of a theard contains 10 posts,and 10x20mb....
So that's why this rules exist.For a good purpose.
I wasn't arguing about the dimensions
(700x200) ... I was asking about the file size
. In most forums I've been, 120KB to 150KB is the max limit for signature images ... but those are 400px x 200px (like my current sig) in dimension. So it would just be reasonable to go a bit higher than 120KB for a 700x200 image.
Also, I probably should have made it clear that obviously I wasn't thinking of ludicrous
file sizes like you mentioned (20MB). Even if most everyone who plays browser games have fast internet speeds (as most everyone here does), I'd still get pissed if everyone's lugging around sigpics worth 20MB apiece.
However, I don't think a few extra KBs (maybe an extra 100KB for extra artistic legroom?) will hurt. If you can load an Aeria browser game in less than a minute, then you won't feel the difference of a few extra KBs thrown in.
I wasn't about to disrespect any rule, your highness. I've read all four different webpages pertinent to my stay here, thank you. I raised a valid point, for which I do not need the rules (the same ones know) thrown back at me in such condescending manner. But thank you for bothering to reply.
Back to my case: I was hoping GMtk (or even Mazinger) will answer my question, since he's the one running the contest. Surely we can add an exception to the 120KB limit for PM Mazinger's sigpic? If not, then those with larger file sizes (like ~200KB) will be forced to scale down the image ... which is painful in the least.
