    Some people have been complaining about sig length and I agree that sometimes it gets a little out of hand. Often the sigs take up more room than the posts and are filled with obvious search keywords etc... Please try to keep your sig concise and informative. If you want to add a little quote or something, that's fine, but consider using the [FONT] tag to bring the font size down so the sig doesnt take up too much room. Please avoid using obvious seo terms...
