    After some discussion we have finally compiled a new set of universal signature rules based on feedback provided by the community. Please read the below guidelines to ensure you're within these new rules:

    1) Height Limit
    Signatures may not go over 400 pixels in height combined. That means your banner, text, userbars, and other content within your signature must not exceed this limit when put together; any higher would become too tedious to scroll past.
    When editing your signature, there's a small bar that tells you how tall your signature is, so you can tell at a glance if your signature falls within the height limit.

    2) Images Limits and Sizes
    You may not have more than two userbars in your signature. Only one banner may be included in your signature but this banner may not exceed 500 pixels wide and 350 pixels tall. Keep in mind that these are all included in the 400 pixels overall height limit.

    Do try to keep other users in mind when creating your signature as too many images and animations can easily cause lag for those without better computers.

    3) Filesize Limits
    Signature image filesizes, including all animated .gifs, may not exceed 2 megabytes combined. If you're not sure of your signature filesize totals, feel free to post here and we'll give you a quick check!

    4) Spoiler Tags
    You may include spoiler tags within your signature but they must not exceed the 400 pixels height limit when opened. Devices load the content within spoiler tags before they are opened so going too crazy with images and text can cause unwanted lag for some users, especially those who browse on mobile. Feel free to post the rest of your signature spoiler tag content on your profile!

    5) Keep Signatures Appropriate!
    And, of course, remember to keep your signature appropriate. No nudity or pornographic images are allowed.

    If you have any questions regarding your signature, you may post them here.

    And that is all. =] If you're confused about the rules or want one of our staff members to check if your signature complies with these new guidelines, feel free to post here.

    Don't think mine is breaking rules, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    You're good. n~n

    Only one banner may be included in signatures and unfortunately you have two, so you'll have to remove one of them. :(

    You're fine!

    You're fine as well. =)

    There are a few issues with yours. ;_; The total signature height exceeds 500 pixels tall when the spoilers are opened and you may only have one banner in your signature, whereas you have three (the .gif animation counts as a banner if it's banner-sized). Altogether your three images also do exceed 2mb.

    It's cool to see this worked out ^__^ I'm wondering about my signature's filesize, I just made this userbar today but the sprite (BW animated sprite of altaria) had a ton of frames so I want to make sure it's not lagging out anyone's internet... I'm unsure exactly how to check this myself. Also please let me know if anything else is an issue.

    Thank you ♪

    Woah, these changed really recently. :o

    Might as well check mine, just for ease of mind. SCAN ME IF YOU DARE! I mean, could you be so kind as to check my Signature as to whether it fits the new rules?

    Hi, I just recently changed my signature, but am a little worried it goes over the size limit, so I'm bringing it here to be checked. I hope it isn't too large.

    It's certain that mine is WAAAAAY to big, I'll have to condense my claims into a smaller file.

    On another note, you might want to change the info ("Your signature may contain:") to match the new rules!

    Unfortunately yeah, your banner is a little too wide. Banners can't exceed 500 pixels wide and yours is 525 so it's a little over the width limit.

    Ahh indeed your signature is way over the limits hahaha. The spoiler tags make it much taller than 500 pixels in height, which is the maximum allowed. :( And we're aware of the "your signature may contain" issue and are looking into fixing it. Thanks for mentioning, though!

    Hope mine's alright, though if not I can just take out the text and it should be then.
