March 2014 Avatars & Signatures-

We've brought back our Avatar & Signature Thread (we're going to see how the participation goes...)


Below are the forum guidelines for member signature images. Please note that in a lot of cases these guidelines also apply to text based signatures and avatars.

The maximum overall size for signatures is 170px (high) by 550px (wide). This includes text, images, and other signature elements.

File sizes should be no larger than 20 KB and 75 KB. This applies to avatars and signatures, respectively. For signatures, this applies to the combined file sizes of multiple images. Note, smaller file sizes are preferred so please be mindful of our members with slower Internet connections.


Below is an example of a signature with the maximum size dimensions:


Inappropriate content includes;

* Too large, or file size exceeds recommended size.
* Pornographic, violent or otherwise offensive images, language etc. This may include racist remarks, slander etc...
* If the avatar/signature is overly distracting, ie. bright flashing colors, animated sigs (i.e. GIF's/Flash)
* Audio. These are distracting for our members, so do not have audio in your signature.
* Your signature may not advertise a competing site or alternative to Neowin, or advertise a commercial venture. Neowin has its own advertising, this is the only acceptable (commercial) advertising on Neowin. This has been an issue lately. Staff are aware of it and will take action against any offending signatures we may see.
* And of course, do not contain links to, or use your signature to link to pages that contain objectionable material. This includes, warez, cracks, pornography, pyramid schemes, referral ID's, ebay listings and requesting donations.
* Please do not include signature links of a malicious nature. e.g. those that crash your browser, trigger popup floods or emulate BSOD's.



I've seen some odd/funny avatars around here. Some avatars I can immediately recognize, but some are completely a mystery to me.



Mine is simple: It is Wilson from the video game "Don't Starve". My avatar usually reflects the game I am currently playing.
