[edit] Your sig

Hey there Kermit1234! I would like to point out to you, that your signature is currently way too big. It should fit inside this box: Image:sigbox.png. As you can see from your sig page, where I added a gray box to help you resize it, not only is your sig too long, but all images are too high too. Please do try to make it smaller. You can refer to HRWiki:Signature and Help:Signature if you need help. Catch you later! --Sysrq868 11:38, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

On my browser, our sig does not too long, so I think that it is okay to keep it the length it is now. You may want to make your images a bit smaller though. Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:18, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Probably because you don't have the heavy, wide font Kermit1234 is using. To me, it currently looks like this. --Sysrq868 15:14, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out! Sorry, I was just experimenting (which I guess I should have done in the sandbox.) Just one thing before I do this, how do I remove the box and the "no includes?" I just want to know what to delete. Or if you can do it that would be great. <Kermit1234> 14:35, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello. You don't necessarily have to delete them, as they won't show anywhere except that sig page, and they will help you if you ever want to redesign your sig, or quickly show someone that your sig fits. However, if you are sure you want them off, you can revert my edit. Furthermore, you can experiment with your sig without having to go to the sandbox, just be sure that your sig fits the rules after you have done experimenting, as in, do not leave it too big for too long. Thanks! --Sysrq868 14:57, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
As previously mentioned, to include all the images in your sig, there are some that should be resized. Here is what your sig would look like with max height:
For your convenience, you can copy and paste the following:

[[Image:Better-1-Up.png|12px]]<span class="plainlinks">[]</span>[[User:Kermit1234|<span style="font-family:fantasy; color:#000;"> K e r m i t 1 2 3 4</span>]]<span class="plainlinks">[]</span>[[Image:MarzipanVelma.png|12px]]

You'll notice that I left out the "noinclude" stuff. Hope that helps. OptimisticFool 15:45, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Thanks a lot OptismisticFool, but I decided to go back to the basics, and by that I mean go back to the one I had before I added all those other pictures. Thanks a bunch to everyone who helped with this problem (and to anyone that is going to add stuff), who have now inspired my very own awards page! You're all going to be on it, under "The Weekend of Signature Help." Yay! <Kermit1234> 16:22, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Excellent choice. Too many graphics in a sig kills kittens. =] Anyway, I adjusted the size of the one graphic since it was still 21px in height. Now it's 20px. OptimisticFool 15:34, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
However, your sig is still too large.
That's a screenshot off my computer. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 02:46, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
It's worse for me. On my screen, the 3 is also outside the box. This is due to my computer not having the font-family "fantasy" installed and choosing a more or less random font. Loafing 02:51, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
To tell the truth, the whole "sig must fit in this box" is a bit impossible. Unless you keep to the simplest possible sig, your sig WILL be outside the box for some users. With font variations, browser font sizes, different OS, etc., your sig appears differently on every computer. We need to talk about how realistic our current sig rule is, but this is not the place. But, as the rules stand, your best bet is to lose the spaces between letters, I'd say. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:03, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
hows about this? (go to sig page) Also, I agree with Qermaq, something should be done about the rules about sigs. for example, maybe we should have someone post a screen shot of the blue box from their internet program. (and by that I mean Firefox or Internet explorer) Then we can have a comparison between different internet programs from different OS's. <Kermit1234> 22:01, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
