It won't become a tyrannical dictatorship until after I figure out how to permanently ban Dean, Mike, and most importantly, Rich.

Now I'm curious, what is used to count the four lines? Is it how the sig is viewed on the browser? The number of lines the sig fills before being submitted (which would include the bbc code used).

The reason I ask is because for those who have a 'wrap' around sig it takes up a different number of lines depending on how wide the browser is opened on any given monitor.

I'm not looking to questions your authority, Oh Mighty One, but I would like to know as my sig might be over on some people's PC's but not on mine! of course, I realize that not everyone has a 20-21" monitor to view the forums on! lol...

Jenn, I think my laptop screen is 14"- and you only have three lines. Looks good to me!

I too have always wondered that... somtimes my signature is 5 lines on my laptop... On this 19" its 4. But I have seen people with over the limit sigs on the laptop before aswell, and its fine on this computer. What about those poor unfortunate souls with 12" screens!?

Good questions, Jenn and Elle. On my laptop monitor, my sig line is two lines, but I'm on a different pc at the moment and it's 4 lines (well, 3 lines + a little on the 4th line).

I guess the best guideline is to do what you can to limit your sig to four lines or less with your own browser/pc setup. I know I'm not going to be clicking around counting lines and sending off dozens of PMs. Some are very obviously way over the limit, and they should be reduced. If your sig area includes half the lyrics to your favorite song, or all 22 of your pets listed one per line, then you probably need to take care of it.

I think the point is to be responsible about your signature. 3 lines, 4 lines, 5 lines...what's the difference, really. I don't think Rich and Dean are going to spend a whole lot of time with 4 different computers each, all with different size monitors to see whom is breaking the rules.

But, if you have a signature that is 10 lines long...there is no mistake. You know your signature is too big, so fix it. Unless you have a 72" monitor, of course...

I have seen a few signatures that are pushing the 10 line mark. Those are the ones, I think, that will cause issues. Not the ones that are so close they are 4 lines on one PC and 5 on another.

But then again...I'm not the boss here. I'm just a lowly servant to the rulers up on high. I bow at thine feet, oh great Roy Munson, mbDorfer, and Susan. Thou shalt rule with impunity...or an iron fist...or something ...

If I can't beat them with aggression, I will kill them with kindness...and sarcasm...

And if that doesn't work, well then...I may just have to settle for playing nicely. But I don't have to like it ...

Sounds good to me! If it looks like an obvious and blatant disregard for the rules, you'll hear from one of us, and pray it isn't me as I'll be armed!
