    i wanted to upload a signature picture, but then i noticed the rule:

    "Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 2.0 KB (whichever is smaller)."

    a tiny :) 20 by 20 pixel is about 0.7 kb, merely 1/125 of allowed area yet already like 1/3 of allowed kb.

    the allowed area and kb seem to be out of proportion. are they really so, or "2.0 KB" being a typo?

    please clarify, thanks!

    You're right.
    New limits are now: 750x75 pixels, 50 KB maximum size.

    I recommend to create the signature image and phrases that it looks nice and not too bold compared to the posts you make. And please follow the MDL rules when creating the image.

    I have reduced the height to 75. Members want to read posts and not to scroll down a lot.

    You can leave it as it is. But please no hyperlink as it would be clearly advertising then.
