I just had my signiture removed because it violated some guidelines
I didn't realize these were the guidelines and I apologized for my error
Here is what was sent to me
A maximum of five lines of text, with any graphic image counting as one line.
No advertising of your personal or other websites until you have been a contributing member for at least 60 days.
GIF and JPEF file formats for any images with a maximum dimension of 500 pixels wide by 50 pixels tall. File sizes are not to exceed 25k, and animated
GIF's are allowed.
No profanity. No 3rd party advertising other than links and copy to your own personal website(s). The content of your personal website may be
reviewed, however, and based on how it compares to the standards and Terms of ATS, you may be asked to removed the link to your personal
I'll ask for help from DTOM (not the one who removed it, but that one has been very supportive and helpful, not complaining about it at all) to
clarify a little,
but it seems we may not be able to use animations in our logo, at least not the logo we put in our signitures
Otto just informed me I was reading a "not" into it that isn't there!
ETA: our favorite was also over 25k
Perhaps we can still use the animated ones in the thread in some way, but we'll probably need to tailor the winner for the signiture to match the
guidelines given unless some kind of special permission is given for the logo which probably won't happen as the guidelines are there for a reason
edit on 16-11-2012 by PurpleChiten because: added strike to text that was incorrect on my part
