    I was changing my signature, while I did not count the number I am allowed, it does not say how many I am able to use, I tried deleting some to me at the time I thought it appeared to me less then I have now, I may be Wrong but how many are we allowed to use? It might be helpful to know I tried twice so I just left it to revert back to the old signatures It did not say, at least that I could see it only kept saying I had to many?

    I have just tested this and limitations are as follows:

    1500 Characters (Including Spaces)
    3 Separated Lines of Signature



    So you can do three paragraphs worth of signatures if you like as long as the total amount of characters in your signature does not exceed 1500 (including spaces). If you try to write more than 3 separate lines you will not be allowed (even if you keep within the character limit).

    The signature settings were different for different user groups. IT (not me - I can't take credit) has altered it so that the settings are now as follows:

    Maximum printable characters: » 1500
    +-
    Maximum links: » 2
    +-
    Maximum lines: » 5
    +-
    Maximum smilies: » 5
    +-
    Maximum text size (1 - 7): » 4

    This is if you are in the "Registered Users" usergroup - which is the vast majority of people. Staff, under moderation etc have different permissions atm which will be made equal later today hopefully :)
