Petition for raising the sig limit filesize

Now this is not about the dimensions which are certainly reasonable enough, but for the filesize limit, where all the images combined in your sig cannot total or equal over 200KB in size.

I'm petitioning for an increase in this size, doubling it to 400KB.

Now, I had talked to Johnny beforehand about this, and his reasoning against it was to keep compatability for dialup users.

Personally, I don't see a need for websites to carry that need anymore, as I browse daily MANY more image intensive sites than Evermore, although the only other (correct me if I'm wrong) 56k user, Andor, may disagree. Also, it (my request) may kill off any interest in other 56k users might have in the forums.

If you're going to post, please vote as well. The poll is open for 3 days.

I wouldn't mind seeing the increase at all, as it leaves a lot more freedom for crafting sigs and such.

Admittedly, it's been a very long time since I've used dial-up, so I think I've lost the idea of how long that thing takes to load things.

Meh, I voted yes, because I honestly would like to see it happen, though if enough 56k members voice their dissent, then it's not worth it.

I'm actually kind of wishing I could just remove my vote now, since really this should be decided by the 56k members when I think about it.

I was a dial-up user (56k, I think, though based on Smash's speeds I really dont think it was nearly THAT fast...), which is one reason I set the sigs to this size anyways. I used to really have trouble browsing EF after clearing my cache because it had to re-load everything.

Now, that was in the days before EF had any official sig regulation, but nonetheless it showed me we have to have some reasonable limit that isn't gonna screw over all users of one type of internet connection (especially considering some people either can't afford more, or for whatever reason can't get a better connection in their area).

Besides, the current limits are far more lenient, and far larger, than a lot of sites out there, and I've personally promised not to reduce the limits any further, barring some calamity (such as needing to for bandwidth or some other such BS reason that won't ever happen)

No. I don't want those massive, hoggish sigs that you guys used to have and plagued Gaming Chaos for a while. You don't need a fucking wallpaper down there.

I never came to EF in my dial up days, but I was at Gamewinners.com back in their text sig only "ascii is teh coolness" days (I made several ascii sigs myself). Between Dial Up, and my 1997 Compaq Presario 2200 with Windows 95 and 1.5 GB total hard drive space, it often took 10+ minutes to initially log in, but it was often fine once I was on. Besides, most people with dial up make up for it somewhat by having a good computer.

However, there IS a way to test it. Personally, I have my options set to 40 posts per page, for example. If we make several files ov exactly 400 kb, post them all in one page, and have anyone who's concerned about the speed browse that page, we should be able to tell.

Personally, I'm just glad the limit isn't 25 kb like at GW >_<

That's not what's being voted on, but the actual filesize (for more detailed sigs, or moving sigs, or something like that.)

I dont care either way, so it sounds good.
