Spiral Dance

"Is it arrogance, or mystery to join the dance?
To pay your money, mark the sequence, take the chance.
To play at prophecy with trembling hands;
To read the words in the code of life and its commands.
May gentleness, and grace guide all we do
With the song that weaves the generations through." K. Marr

What's this?

We have vigilantes cruising the forums looking for overlong sigs?

I remember on the old one it was the domain of NNLDI, hhe hasn't been reporting much.

And Sercuss anything over 8 lines is, in fact, too long :p Max told us to clip them that short because he doesn't like seeing the forum cluttered by sigs longer than many posts!

Regarding the above one, this raises an issue, Minnas does in fact have a smaller text thus making the sig look smaller and not as cluttered.

I measured it in compared to my sig and takes up less room than my sig which is only 6 lines.

Surely that sort of thing needs to be looked at and perhaps the rules changed.

8 lines means 8 lines. Of course, if your font is huge, it will be adjusted accordingly. If we start making exceptions, we'll be opening a Pandoa's Box. We all know what happened the last time.

Well I don't, which is why I was suggesting that maybe the thing be looked at, as I say his sig was smaller than mine thus making less clutter in the forums.

Quote boxes take up more space; generally 2-3 extra lines not counting what is already inside the quote box. Generally quotes in boxes are best stashed under spoiler tags.

As for the small font one, I'm inclined to let it slide; 8 lines may be 8 lines, but the general rule is to reduce clutter; and the standard I judge sigs at is 8 lines at the default font setting to be the maximum. If people wanna use smaller fonts to fit more into their sig, I'm much more inclined the let it go.
