It's only 15px off, mods probably didn't notice.

I hate massive sigs more than anything. Hell, even mine is a bit too large (fixing now!)

Edit: Fixed. Just the image now.

Your tag is this size:



You're allowed a graphic upto this size (512x100):



You shrunk it too much, or I'm guessing it was proportionally the same and you reduced it to fit the 100px height so now it's tiny, but I can see how it would have been way too high before.

Pro Tip
You should design your sig based on the 512x100 aspect ratio. You could enlarge the three figures in the sig by cropping them a bit higher (there's no need to show the entire torso, you could cut it mid-chest). Also the center (foremost) figure, as badass as your headwrap may be there's two other shots of it there, you could afford to chop the top of it off. Then move the signature over instead of having it right over the gun, so it can be larger and more legible.

As you play around with it, I'm sure you'll find other interesting things you can do.

Fix the mustache too!

Here's the deal, the mods don't see everything so there are people with sigs that are too big or whatever out there. They get reeled in at some point.

In addition, he could lower the center image if he must have the head wrap in frame.

Few errors in your thinking.....

1) Your not a newb, you were around when the signature rules were first put into place and posted as a news announcement.

2) It has been said several several several times on this forum that non mods/admins need to stop trying to mod/admin ASC if you see something you have a concern about, use the report a post feature at which point a mod/admin will review and if required take action.

3) Yes you may have donated to the site to help keep it running and growing, but that all it is a donation. Its not a repetetive payment that you are required to do. The site owners are the ones who are continuously paying for this site, them and well now the retaillers who are paying for ad space and advertising rights. As a site supporter your perk is posting in the offtopic/trash sections, which IMO should just be deleted period, so theres your perk.




It's funny the one guy in your link you commented too is so close to the rule size I'd overloook it honestly, but there was 3 others you completely missed who posted before and after the one you commented about, hence the reason we say to use the report a post feature.........
