stupid question

This is probably a stupid question, but I'm trying to add the new blinkie to my siggy and it says I can't have more than 510 characters. Do I really have too many characters in my siggy?

Hi,

Yes, it's possible... when you look at your signature edit box/screen... it counts every.single.character. And when you use any fonts/bolding/etc.-type codes, it has this irritating habit of repeating them for every line even if you just put it at the beginning and end of your siggy... which then eats up characters on you.

In our Signature & Picture Guidelines, about 1/3 of the way down just below the FAQ's there is a section on the character limit and how to "fix" it.

HTH and if you need more help, don't hesitate to ask!

Also, I'm not sure where you are trying to put the blinkie, but your sig is very long. Might have something to do with it too.
