| i used to have a sig with an moving picture|
someone told me it was slowing down their browser when I had posted
it was a GIF file i believe
are they any guidelines on this??
Yup, the usual moving pics are animated gif files. While dialup is not really the norm these days, plenty of people will still be using it, maybe board members. Bearing in mind all the smilies, other people's sigs, avatars, banner etc, etc, there's a lot of stuff to download when first visiting, and if the user is a regular tidy-upper, then they may well clean their temp internet files out in which case they need to download them again. I'd suggest fixing a size limit on sigs - the site already does so for avatars. Not sure what to suggest, but a few hundred K ought to be sufficient.
I gues we could do a poll - what tyre of connection/browser/screen res etc do usuers use, and base subsequent site mods on the results?
