I've had my signature disabled once before. My bad. I didn't check the size. So I payed the fine and got it re-enabled, no big deal. Frankly I like the fines, takes gold out of the system (no matter how small the amount). classified_northkittenstar
I've had my sig disabled once, for going over the byte limit in the image there. It was actually a different version of my current sig, which was unexpected and kind of hilarious, since it is *tiny*. But evidently there was some compression weirdness because it was waaaaaaay over the file size limit and I had no idea because the image itself was still so small.
My reaction when I got the notice was basically WHAT. Because I mean come on look at it.
The other funny thing is right before it got disabled I had posted in a thread about signature size limits :V
I didn't even know the Detention Center existed. o_O That's kinda cute... in a scary way.
(Anything to do with getting in trouble in school makes me nervous. I was a goody goody.)
I got very nicely warned once by a mod for having a sig file size too big. Whoops!
It was only over by, like, 10 bytes or something silly like that.
I just decreased the quality a tad to get it within the limit. Easy peasy.
Still, hearing from a mod about something I was doing "wrong" put me on edge.
Ever since then, I make sure every sig is within the limits. Lesson learned!
Some mods think that if you're over the limit by 1byte that you're trolling them. But I dont think they ban you, just disable the sig.
I had my sig busted once for and over-sized .gif. Silly me read the info about meeting a maximum dimension requirement, but missed the bit about maximum file size. The 10g wasn't really an issue, but I am now hyper vigilant about what goes in my siggy. I think that the detention system is pretty fair, as if you make newbie mistakes, you're only punished at a level that a newbie could afford, but the compounding certainly discourages repeat offenders.
Some other compounding things are a bit odd. I do have a friend who says that to change his username again is over 500k. He doesn't want to chuck the account and start a new one though, because of the sentimental value- and also if he wanted his current username back, he'd have to pay for the change anyway.
*gets back on topic*
That 'shovel' is still in detention- really? I do have some questions about what people consider to be offensive content and what is fine on here, but I'm not moderator trained. I must say, that every time I notice your lack of signature, I think of the shovel.
yeah, it's still in detention because i haven't bothered paying the 10g fee yet. IMO it looks nothing like a p***s if you compare it to a picture of the real thing. there is mostly illusion, but i think it looks more like a shovel than like a d**k. whatever. i don't need a sig.
lol nice to know it's still burned into the back of your brain. i have my tank on my profile actually if you want some aquarium nostalgia.
it was debatable to people though. some people saw it as a shovel, some people didn't, some people didn't see it as a d**k until other people pointed out the similarity to them. fun stuff. the first time i got harried by it a group of mods were polled and came to the decision it was okay after I did a small change. a year later, even if it was the same approved tank from before, i got harried a second time and they switched their decision from the year before. *insert exacerbation here*. even if i made changes again to the shovel i'd probably get harassed again later down the line by some tightwad so i'm just going to leave it disabled. so it's a gray area apparently when it comes to interpretation. and if it's a gray area mods will consult each other. the thing that annoyed me the most though was that they suddenly decided to change/go back on their decision from the year before.
it's like posting a picture like this
and instantly you think "d**k"
because of this conversation.
but really, it's just a picture of a building.
if someone put that pic in their sig with the word 'fallacy' underneath i wouldn't think it's sexually explicit material, just interpretative illusion. but i guess that's debatable as sexually explicit material according to certain mods. >.>
that is true art though cool it makes people think and question.
i consider my tank a masterpiece in aquarium decoration cool /joke
^ Your shovel will live on in infamy. Totally bogus that they made you remove it, though, especially when you consider that a ton of items for the site are way more suggestive. Smh.
I never got anything disabled. I didn't even know there was a detention center. I did get a PM from a mod a long time ago, though, asking me to resize or remove the .gif in my sig. I guess they don't do that themselves anymore?
Cuuuute, it told me nothing disabled, good girl. XD I've never been there before either! I don't think that I've ever been contacted by a mod or admin except to thank me for reporting stuff and in one case, helping me get my account back after it was hacked.
i didn't know that existed D:
/hates being reprimanded
i've had warnings from mods twice i think from big sig sizes crying
i hate that i had to go from png to jpg and resize the image itself,
but i'm thankful i didn't have it officially disabled or paid gold to re-enable it ;v;
