Default Changes to avatar and signature privileges

I have made some adjustments on the signature and avatar privileges. These changes are mainly for those moving into them or new members, so anyone who is currently in the "Registered - Extra BST" group will not be dinged for having too large of a signature if it is within the old standard, but members just moving into the group will have to abide by the 300x100 limit. A member asked about allowing older members a larger avatar and it got me to thinking that members should get better privileges as they go along.

The biggest change in in signatures. No images in signatures until a member hits 100 posts, excluding Folding stats and userbar (I will have to manually set each one up who falls into the exclusion). Members with 100-249 are allowed a 300x100 signatures, while members with 250+ are allowed a 600x150 signature. Here is a rundown of how it breaks down:

Registered Users (0 -39 posts):
  • Only forum provided avatars
  • Profile pic, 100x100
  • Forum titles
Registered Users Extra (40 - 100 posts):
  • Same as above
  • Signature allowed, text only (according to the rules)
  • Custom avatars allowed, 80x80
Registered Users Extra BST (100 - 249 posts):
  • Same as above
  • Custom avatars allowed, 100x100
  • Graphics and text sigs allowed, maximum size of 300 x 100 (accoding to the rules)
  • Buy/Sell/Trade forum available
Registered Users Extra 2 (250+ posts):
  • Same as above
  • Custom avatars allowed, 120x120
  • Graphics and Text sigs allowed, maximum size of 600 x 150 (according to the rules)
  • Custom forum titles.

Anyone who falls into the signature exception of being on the Folding team and also has fewer than 100 posts will need to send me a PM so I can set them up properly.

I will try to update the Forum Rules announcement to reflect these changes ASAP.

That is because you are not even at the first level to have a signature.

Quote:
Registered Users (0-39 posts)
Profile pic - 100x100 & 25k max
Forum avatars only
No signature
You have 32 posts right now. You need at least 40 to have a text based signature.
