Can't tell by looking at the code . Edit in the actual sig. I suspect the {pre} line makes it too long, and you have too many formatting lines. Put it under the spoiler.

Post what you want to say, maybe in a [code] box, and we can start from there.

It's not, because I already edited it.

Before editing, you had spoilers spread out totaling up about 12 lines. I floated the spoilers to the left and took out the extraneous line returns. Now it's fine.

I know this was already posted by DYP, but can somebody please fix this sig? It's very long on mobile format.

Our sig rules are designed around computer screens. "Long on mobile" isn't rulebreaking. If you think our sig rules need to be revisited in light of the fact that the rules were made before mobile users were so ubiquitous, feel free to start a discussion thread.

Personally I hate stupidly long sigs and would welcome a change, but for now it's legal. Meanwile, you might consider disabling sigs in your UCP.

To be fair, this is true. Any way I could help to improve this? I want to keep the [floatleft] and [floatright] box-y feel, but does anyone have any suggested trimming I could do?

That's the actual problem. You're trying to write a novel instead of a sentence. People don't need to read that after every post. Here's a variant that removes no information but works on mobile:


GOVERNMENT INFORMATION
NATIONAL LEADERSHIP
EXECUTIVE BRANCH
MILITARY INFORMATION
ARMED FORCES
CLASSIFIED DATA
GENERAL INFORMATION
NATIONAL OVERVIEW
MAP AND MAJOR CITIES
DIPLOMATIC INFORMATION
FOREIGN RELATIONS
CRIMSON STARSET RP

This is probably more than the allowed 800 characters, but you need to trim it anyway.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, and if it isn't, please do pardon me.

What and how are 800 characters counted? I'm just curious because my current sig (within the < 8 line limit) has a whooping 4000+ characters thanks to the BBCodes that made the rainbow color happen. So I was wondering if BBCodes are excluded completely, or is there a list of BBCode tags that doesn't count (e.g. [color] is not counted, but [url] is)?

Thank you in advance!

-----

EDIT: Was it "Display" characters? Excluding all the BBCodes and even the URLs, it goes to 723 characters.

Short answer? Dunno. It's not logical or predictable.

I frequently edit overlong sigs, and I often end up putting in align, float, and spoiler tags. Sometimes they get counted among the 800 characters, sometimes they don't. And if you think I'm missing the "spoiler=SomeRandomText" as valid characters, I can assure you that it's counted in weird ways. I can be at 810 characters, remove one character, and it's legal. Sometimes removing a space or a line return counts as one less character. Other times it doesn't.

I suspect it has something to do with custom forum formatting, which is hidden in the depths of the Admin panel where I can't see it. Regardless, it's frustrating for me too.

That's how it's supposed to work, but I can assure you that some of the tags count as characters some of the time.

I see. Thanks for the answer, Fris! Not that it affects me in any way, but I'm just curious so... yeah! ^^

EDIT: And yeah, I did notice the weird character count too. Sometimes it tells me 812 char, but I just remove a single character, or remove a BBCode, and then it went < 800 char. Not sure what exactly I did because it was a while back. Ah well, I can live with that, no problem!

Aight, I've given it a bit of a revamp. Is there anything I should change?

You seem to have a firm grasp on the formatting. I don't comment on the content, except to continue to point out that you don't NEED lot's of description at the bottom of EVERY post. That's not really a "you" problem, it's an "everyone" problem.

If I wanted people to see my RP stats and details, I'd write it in a dispatch or factbook with all the characters I wanted, and then link the factbook in my sig. I don't know why people are resistant to this - it's completely sensible and gives the information only to those who are interested enough to click the link. I guess my ego is strong enough that I don't feel the need to spam everyone else with my thoughts on every post.

Hello, is there any other signature formats that I could use instead of my current one?

Yes.

Your question is meaningless. What do you want to do with your sig? You could lose the box or add spoilers or float the content to the left or right. We're not psychics. You need to tell us what you're looking to do.

It';s just formatting tags. You've already figured out how to do a box. After that, it's just experimentation. The main problem I see is that you put the box outside of the float tags. It needs to be inside the tags.

You don't need my permission to make changes.

If you've got that much to say, you're going to exceed your 800 characters. Put your content into a dispatch or factbook and link it in your sig. Go minimalist.
