The section under the upper spoiler is legal at 6 lines. The section under the lower spoiler is going to be too long. Also, please don't credit that original spoiler - anyone copying that player's dispatch is going to be trouble.

If you don't delete it, your sig will be too long. It's currently 9 lines, and the content under the spoiler is a mess. Store it somewhere else.

interesting—i'll post the extra spoiler in a dispatch of mine, but i've seen nations with more than 9 lines contained under a spoiler and came across this post earlier in the thread:

Langenia wrote:Are spoilers and the lines inside them counted?

The spoiler itself counts as two or three lines iirc but the stuff inside the spoiler doesn't count.


sorry if these are too many questions, but is this valid or should i take the spoiler out permanently?

Yes. I just told you that it counted as extra lines and blank lines. The stuff under the spoiler doesn't count towards your total.

Yes.

Your oversized forum signature has required Mod editing. The rule is "8 visible lines, including blank lines." Yours was more than double that. I don't have a quick way to look it up, but I seem to recall that you've been warned on other puppets as well. Follow the rules before you lose sig privileges on ALL your nations

Spoilers count as 1.5-3 lines and lined items, such as boxes and quotes, add one line each for the top and bottom lines. If you need assistance in creating your signature, please visit the Sig Workshop.

I thought BBcode would reduce the amount of lines there was. Sorry about this

I've also never used any other accounts on the forum except Kors.

You used a Code block where a [pre] would have been more appropriate.

As you can see, the stuff spoiler isn't in the first line and just looks bad, so I wanted to know if there was a way to make the stuff spoiler on the same height as the Info spoiler.

Thread merged into the topic created for this very purpose.

Float tags have very specific rules. IT has to be set up as [float][float][align]. Yours had the second float in the trailing position. You also don't need more than one set of align tags, and your {pre} should always be the last thing in your sig, as they always add useless blank lines.

On mobile, my length is 7 but on PC my length is clearly 4-5. I made the same mistake reporting Lescaaris' Sig.
1. Hello. I'm Kors. Welcome to my sig.It's a normal sig, a completely ordinary sig, an indifferent sig. You won't find anything different in this sig (1 sentence, no enterbars)
2. About Spoiler
3. news
4. Newsbar

So I might tell you a little bit about me.

Again, I point out that in its current configuration, the spoiler counts as two lines. The [pre] block counts as three. Add that to the two normal lines, and it's seven on a PC, which I'm looking at right now.

It's currently legal, but please stop trying to tell me that 5=7. That math doesn't work.

Sorry, I thought that the spoiler only took up 1 space
