Rule 3 update
« on: May 30, 2012, 12:21:41 AM »
I was wondering, does any of the admin staff still use 600x800 resolution monitors anymore to actually check that requirement? Does anyone? :lol:

I think its safe to remove that now, but that's just my opinion. :mrgreen:

IMO still no reason to post images larger than 800x600. I browse on a single-core netbook and a POS smartphone pretty regularly. Anything larger means side-scrolling as well as larger use of system resources due to the filesize. 

Even the monitor I use to browse on my desktop is 1440x900. Images larger than 700pix tall require scrolling if I'm not browsing in full-screen mode.
 
e: Just realized this is about sig sizes -- same logic still applies. Message boards I'm on that allow large sigs are just obnoxious because you can't dilineate between the sig and the post.

We have an image resizer built in to most skins, as well.

He's talking strictly about signatures though.

I wasn't speaking about image size.

It says 4 lines of text as seen on a 600x800 monitor.

I just thought it was humorous that we still had a rule based on such an archaic screen resolution. :mrgreen:

Archaic?  Two words.  Smart phone.

In all honesty, if you're on a smartphone, you should have sigs turned off. Especially since they don't even get up to 600x800 resolution. :lol:

At any rate, yes, archaic.

Isn't four lines of text still four lines, regardless of resolution? :lol:

I'm not turning off sigs for when I'm on my smart phone considering I browse both, and I don't think anyone else should have to either.

No. 4 lines on 600x800 would be 1 on 1920x1080 or 1440x900. Those old monitors were 13-15 inches in a 4:3 aspect ratio. If you want to see the difference, change it on your monitor.

Onyx, I don't know how you can stand sigs and avatars while on your phone. I have one of the largest screens available and it bothers me to no end. :lol:
