And it came to me today, that you can also resize your banner, messing with the height and with filed of your code. Not to make too big banners, as it may be disturbing. I made that mistake, and reduced the size.

 

Have a great day!

Thanks to a troll who "reported" my signature now I removed it. Hope everyone is happy, I really tried to do a little fun here, but GG is on the side of the trolls. So much for the "cool and easygoing" image GG desperatly tries to have.

There are two signatures you can include - one for the normal site and one for the mobile version.

Anyone including a banner/image in the mobile sig is being incredibly selfish.

I don't have a banner, so I'm not sure how it can show up.

I have two versions of my sig - a three line text sig for the full site and a one line text sig for the mobile site.

Mobile screens are small and mobile internet is slow so anyone adding banners or multiline text sigs in their mobile sig aren't thinking of other people.
