Due to my own crazy busy schedule, I haven’t been able to keep as tight a watch on people who go over the banner and signature size in the last month. Some new members haven’t seen the rules and some old members seem to have been taking advantage of my negligence. Because this is partially my fault, I am giving everyone twenty-four (24) hours (aka one day) notice to fix it. If you need to review our regulations, you can check out this thread in the Accident Prone forum: Avatar and Signature Rules
Anyone who is still in violation of these rules after tomorrow at 5:30 PM EST will have their signatures replaced by me. And it isn’t going to be with a pretty one.
Please remember that this is a free site. Alphie and Pel keep this server going with their own money and neither me, nor any of our moderators are paid to help run it. You have no idea how much you can help by simply following the posting and forum guidelines we have in place.
Edited to add: Please note that I said anyone and not everyone. With over 11,000 members, it is quite impossible for me to track down every single person whose banner and/or signature is too big. So, if you get whacked by the fugly banners tomorrow and you see someone who got off clean, please don’t yell at me.

Folks I’ll make it simple:
Big banners=big bandwith=crashing lexicon (and if Seraphyn had just replaced the banner with no heads up we’d have even more whining.)
100+ emails/pms/actual resumes in our PO BOX from 16-year-old and their psychotic stage mothers=we can’t find PM’s and emails from people who have legit suggestions, problems, requests.
2 front page posts that aren’t all fluffy amongst a month of other items don’t make it a negative site, but if that’s how you feel no one is forcing you to stay here. As Seraphyn, said 11,000 members on a volunteer site. You don’t like it, our front page is a downer on your day, no problem go someplace else.
