Image & Signature Limits

As the OHMC nears I am again reminded that the limits on both images in post and characters in signatures are too low.

Can we raise those? Even going from 60 to 75 would help with images.

With signature I recently tried reworking mine actually dropping down to just Horror challenges and spending tabs and even that came up too long for the system, and there is where my signature has been stuck for the last 2 years or so.

The issue with raising the image limit is that you can crash a page, especially if you're on mobile. I'll see about the signature size. That might have been truncated at some point with a site update.

Re: Image & Signature Limits

Do signatures even show up on the mobile browser? I don't think I know how to enable them, if they can.

Signature successfully updated, thank you. (any chance of getting a small bump to 65 on the image limit? Enough to solve my issue not quite enough to bring down the site. (or maybe a seniority based system on image limit, I know Chad ran into this too).

Re: Image & Signature Limits

I, too, am having signature size issues - and it's a new thing. I had no problems with the Sci-Fi challenge but it won't let me change it for the Horror one. Even if I remove the entire line with the Sci-Fi list link it says it's too long when I try to save it.

I believe I changed it to 1,000 characters, not including BBCode.

Re: Image & Signature Limits

Here's the error I get:
  1. Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 5 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be counted as multiple lines.

I don't think it's a length thing unless the links are causing the parser to think there are more lines than there are (the "implicitly wrapped" bit).

Re: Image & Signature Limits

And I found the issue. It seems the new "improved" editor was adding an extra, unseen, line *every time the signature was edited*! Just like it does if you use spoiler tags. I went into "source" and then saw what was going on. So... another example of the failure of the new editor to perform better...

Re: Image & Signature Limits

Every time I edit my horror challenge list I have to remove dozens of extra lines. I miss the old days.

This was not occurring for me when tested. Did you use the Source editing workaround?

EDIT: Do you mean at the bottom of your sig?

Re: Image & Signature Limits

So, why canít I edit my signature? It says I have too many lines. Canít be more than 5. I have 2. Even if I save current signature which thankfully remains in tact, it tells me over limit. I just want to change the written line. To something shorter even. Canít even change a smilie. Anything I can do? Thx.

Change the editor to "Source" on the far right of the editor menu and try that way.

did it IB. looked different, but got same thing when try to adjust slightly..."Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 5 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be counted as multiple lines."

Re: Image & Signature Limits

You had "hidden" lines beneath your text. Delete those before changing anything and it should work.
