Did I miss something?

Rather then pm'ing the person I thought I would put it here in case the rules have, in fact, changed.

This morning my signature image was made smaller. Not really a big deal but I do have a couple of questions about it:

It states at the bottom of the upload box for your signature image 'The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller)'. My image was 192px X 100px and 7.59kb - well within either of those limits. Have these limits changed? Is it now 97px X 50px?

I also resized my logo to fit within what is currently in place in my signature (simply because I'm extremely anal about the resolution of my company logo) and attempted to upload it. The forum is no longer accepting the transparency in my png. Has that changed?

Why does no one just ask that my signature line be changed? Just curious.

Ongoing project from our Board Room, Roger.

The signature line artwork was getting a little out of hand and we wanted to start getting it reigned in a little. First to go were the more serious abusers like John Bridge.

John, when we recently affiliated with the NTCA, put a linked logo in his signature. Then he put our logo beside it. Then lotta other guys who were new members of NTCA did the same and we changed theirs to a linked logo to match John's. Etc, etc.

Was decided by our staff (moderators) that a smaller size for all that sort of graphics in siggy lines was desirable. So, rather than ask each member to change his/hers, our staff would simply reduce what was in there and make the change.

We knew that eventually someone would notice and complain, but still it was the easier solution. Wasn't anything personal about you or yours. I didn't know we'd not changed the parameters in our guidelines, but I'll look into that.

If you want a somewhat larger version of your particular artwork to appear with your posts, I suggest you might wanna make one of a size to replace your avatar, maybe, and just provide a link in your signature line to your website. But your logo is still quite recognizable even to these old eyes and still links to your site.

No complaint at all, CX, just trying to behave. You know, except for the personal attacks inna mudbox.

It's cause I work for a living rather than sitting behind a desk spamming the internet in crackerjack, Nebraska just in case they want an installer in tampa, Florida.

OR...
