All images are automatically resized by a resizer if they exceed the limit. This creates an unattractive resize notification box around the image, but it is the best thing we can do at this point to keep sig sizes under control.
So my signature size is okay right? (look below =]).
I found this forum while in from the field and got right into it before reading these threads about sigs and requirements. I posted a pic at the bottom of a message. It was not an advertisement, just a dumb pick of Sloth from Goonies. As a result I received an email notification of a 1 point infraction. What does this mean? I am hoping not too much as it was an honest mistake and not an attempt to advertise anything or do anything wrong. It was me being impatient and foolish. So to everyone I apologize. Next time I will take more time to read up first.
It's just an infraction to let us as mods know how many offenses you have against you. If you flamed someone in a week and I saw three previous offenses in the last two months or so, we'd have to ban you.
But an infraction for a mistake like this shouldn't be a big deal. Just enjoy posting and make sure it you don't do it again.
