Roleplayers need bigger Signatures!

Post by Kinslayer »

It has come to my attention that a lot of Roleplayers have more than one character or a character with a lot of information, and it has become the norm to have a signature profile to make things easier. Personally I can just fit my profile into my signature, but if I pick up any more items I wont be able to fit them in. Some players can barely fit one, let alone two or more profiles in...

Is there some way of maximum signature character length being extended?

Images can also be given shorter addresses either with a small file name or using something like tinyURL.

We'll have to discuss any lengthening of signature sizes.

:?: Players are only allowed to have a single character in the RPG for fairness reasons. Who are these lots of roleplayers you are referring to?

On topic, it would be nice to have a limit of, say, 512 characters rather than 255. You wouldn't say from my somewhat petite signature, but I'm on 254, I believe.

We (the admins) have decided to up the signature size to 512 characters on a trial basis of a month.

We'll review this after that time.

@ Tarbo: Maybe I was wrong then. I see a lot of names crop up in more than one group when browsing the menu without actually going into the groups. I guess almost every mod must have a place in another group then. Still, the longer sigs should help out roleplayers with big inventories and many stats.

Once you get as good as Khaina will be, you'll need heaps of room for stats!



@ Rork & Admins: Thanks for the trial period then, I hope it goes to a good result.




PS - Yes, I did it. Dont hurt me Rork. This name is better... Help Me

Hey Legion. If you think I'm not laughing at you on the other side of the world, I don't mind telling you, think again. I could but wish I had taken that bet.

Does this have any relation to the scrolling lists of topics on the front page not appearing?

No it does not. Langmann removed the joob because it seemed to be a significant cause of site slow-down - which you'll note was going on well before this here change. You might recall that this is how the problem was temporarily solved last time.

Yes I know. But then it came back on around a week or two ago. Now that the joob-a-munga is down again, I presumed it may have something to do with this?

If I want, I could do a signature with more than the limitation without trouble, it just require some work.

Make a picture of what you want in your signature and place that picture in your signature place, problem solved :P

Sorry to bring this back up but I just wondered what the verdict was from the trial period? Is the longer length of signature to stay?

I sure hope so. I now have more room for my characters gear in the sig-profile and from my groups alone know I am not alone in this.

Thanks for taking the change on board at any rate!!
