    This is weird - but I just posted on a thread (folding) and my sig got cropped so that lines of text were gone...

    I am unsure if this post is going to also crop - but the preview on my User CP shows the lines there....

    What gives?

    pardon double post
    but
    it
    just
    occurred
    to
    me
    this
    could
    be
    linked to short posts where that line thinger is there
    so I made this "long" post to see....

    There was a hack of sorts implemented a month or so back, wasn't posted in the forums because it didn't really need to be ;)

    The forum guidelines state that the signature can't be more than 150px high, and with this hack in place if anything in the signature field, in your case top of graphic to bottom of text, is higher than 150, the browser "hides" the rest, or from a user standpoint, cuts it off.

    Same goes for 500px wide.

    Pretty sure that's how it works out.

    As I mentioned, nothing was really posted about it because the guidelines should be followed anyways, just more of a way of enforcing it since we don't have the sig nazi anymore :smoker:

    I miss PK!

    heard he makes posts like once in a zillion visits - maybe he'll pop up and say hi! Esp since he now knows my sig violates guidelines (again!)
