salam E-DZ'ers,

In an effort to speed the forums more and more, now that we've got rid of the ads (major reason why the forums were loading slowly), we would like everyone to edit their signatures please and to post small pictures.

I have also put a restriction so that each signature is displayed once on the page (so if you post twice on the same page, your signature will only be displayed along with your first post on that page and not the other times to decrease the size of loading on the page.

Attached File  signature.png   4.16KB   10 downloads

Just another suggestion, when you save a picture, make sure you save it as PNG, because that's the most compressed and highest quality picture you can get.

Hope everyone can help us apply this.

I think its a bit of an ''extreme'' measurement to be honest [lol] @ only shows our sig in one post, The page loading problem is cuz of the slow connection and right now for example e-dz loads, really fast for me Hamdulillah/Masha'Allah cuz the connection is a lot faster at this time than during the day. Didn't we already set a size limit for signatures before? smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':S' />


~~~ Peace out ~~~


What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......

Well if people stick to the image sizes that we recommend and abide by them, then i'll take that restriction off.

A very good point raised.

I'll see if the writing is readable after I cut mine down to size, otherwise I'll just make a new one instead lol

No, it only applies to images that would have rather been JPG, BMP .etc .etc
Ofcourse, animated signatures MUST be GIFs
What he's saying is that, to ensure the maximum quality on signatures and images (That are not animated), its better to use PNG as opposed to the other formats.
