Here you can see the max size:
2) Text Signature:
It can have up to 8 lines.
1) Graphic Avatar:
We allow avatars up to 170 x 170 pixels!
Using images other than those will cause your signature or avatar doesnt show correctly.
Also flash/animated or multiple files will be checked so they dont slow down the loading times.
If you have troubles uploading your file contact and Administrator
If you fail to use a signature with these requirements we will replace it with the following:
[center]My signature doesn't meet the armaholic forum rules and screws up the layout. I should read [url=http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&p=104#104][red]this topic[/red][/url] and fix it.
