Default Signatures

Can we implement a limit or a certain amount of lines for these?

I'm noticing a few people have either long or confusing signatures..

Somebody just needs a bigger monitor

On the topic of sig's. It would be swell if we could somehow use the dynamic folding stat's sigs from EOC. None of the methods worked here last time I checked.

I don't mind increasing the font size if mine is hard to read but I kind of like it not taking up much space.

lol - I wasn't entirely serious - Smaller fonts make it a little cleaner so you know it is a sig, rather than part of the message and doesn't take up so much space.
I mentioned it as something enaberif could add to his list as some people find the small fonts just as hard to read

On the other hand it could be one of those forums with the huge graphics signatures that make a page of posts take forever to load.

99% of forums I visit I turn signatures off because people put either useless stuff in them o they are so big and annoying it bugs me.

And right now since I'm stuck on a 800x600 screen.. it doesn't help.

Maybe we could use some of the area in the screenshot below for people to have their system specs. Since this is a hardware site and pretty much all of the signatures are just people's specs it would cut down on the size a lot and that space is just being wasted for empty space currently.
