[BIMG] vb code is not allowed to be used in signatures.

Sig Sizer Image - This is the maximum allowed size that includes images and text in your signature.

You may check your signature at the bottom of your USER Control Panel to be assured it meets our dimension standards. Filesize for images will be enforced upon inspection without warning. Signature editing will be done at our discretion and noted in your signature.

Please adhere to these rules when you post your sig. Failure to do so may result in a request to reduce the size of your signature (or edited by an Administrator without warning if the signature is in breach of these rules to an extreme that will be decided by this site's administration) and if you do not comply within a reasonable amount of time, the signature will be removed by an Administrator.

If you see a signature that is too large, please PM/email the owner of the signature and ask him/her to reduce its size. If you receive flak or no response, please contact a moderator/admin and appropriate action will be taken.

If you have any questions regarding the signature policy, please feel free to PM/email a moderator/admin.

In addition to the above, you will notice custom avatars for PC Perspectives staff members. These avatars are reserved for PC Perspective staff members only!
