Signatures, avatars, embedded images, and size limits Hello all,
First of all let me just say that we enjoy the enthusiasm that our posters in Marble Hornets and Slender Man Mythos bring to the forums. With that being said we do want to make sure that everyone gets to enjoy their stay here and the experience is absolutely the best for all involved. Compound all those statements with the fact that unfiction is run by SpaceBass and others via donations that keep this place running regardless of the bandwidth that's dished out there on a daily basis.
So I have to politely ask if you guys can keep in check amongst yourselves the signature and avatar sizes that you use. For avatars we can pretty much control that via the forum control panels. But if you choose to embed an image for your signature please try to keep it under 40k. If you embed two images of 23k each that means that each of your post dishes out 46k additionally to whatever else you are posting.
The same goes with embedded images in your messages. The rule of thumb there is to put large files as attachments or post the URL to the image instead of using the IMG tags to embed them inside your posts. That means that the image is only served out only to those that click on the link and not to everyone that is simply turning the pages.
We appreciate everyone's cooperation with this. We, just like all of you, are players and want to make sure that the forums provide the best experience possible. If we can all work together we can make sure that this goal is always a reality.

Good afternoon everyone. Just wanted to refresh your memory as to the Avatar rules here on UF.
Displays a small graphic image below your details in posts. Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 100 pixels, the height no greater than 100 pixels, and the file size no more than 20 KB.
If your avatar is larger than these guidelines, and I notice it, chances are you will be getting a PM from me that looks an awful lot like this post, with the exact dimensions/size of your avatar listed - and then find that your avatar has been removed. How another Mod or Admin reacts may vary...
Feel free to work on fixing your avatars now, it would certainly save us both the trouble later.
Thank you in advance for following the guidelines when updating your avatar.
