To avoid excessive bandwidth and memory use and the distraction of fellow posters trying to read posts, we ask that members do not use animated images in their avatars or signatures. Those that do will be asked to remove them immediately. This is out of respect for fellow posters.
Small, static images can be used in signatures, within reason. They should be in the general size realm as a standard banner advertisement or smaller. A standard banner ad measures 468 x 60 pixels.
