How many lines are acceptable for a sig.?


I'm just wondering how many lines down are acceptable for a sig., more importantly, is mine too big/crossing the threshold?

Thanks for any replies!

Etiquettes suggest the following: four to seven lines for maximum signature length.

But a lot of peolpe don't care and have longer sigs (even compared to yours )

I guess it kind of depends on the relevence/usefullness of it. No one will complain about a long sig they find usefull. I have seen moderators in forums with huge signatures (links to newbie answers) that are cool. I guess "use your best judgement" is probably the best answer.


I too am somewhat guilty of long signatures.

Ahh, that makes me feel better Pcghost. As for the usefulness, it is very useful.
