    Default I have an odd question-

    Why can't I put more things in my siggy? I see so many people with larger pics, and tons of tickers. I can't change anything b/c it says I am using too much space. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas?

    Hmmm, really? I have no clue. Maybe Stephanie would know. Does it actually have a block now? I know lots of siggies seem to be much bigger than the allowed, so I don't know why it would block you?

    This is what it says:
    1. Your signature cannot be longer than 510 characters including BB code markup.
    All I changed was this:
    ,#2 Edd-4.12.

    to this:
    , Randall Dale Edd- 4.12.09

    It just doesn't make any sense. I don't have a lot in my siggy.

    I had the same problem. You have to remove some of the text in your pic but I can't help you cause the girls on my bb had to help me and I forgot how. I am sure someone on here knows how. If you don't figure it out I can ask the gal on my bb again. GL

    Every letter in your sig counts towards that 510 number. So every letter in your counter, and your links, and your pic counts. You must have been almost right to the limit before.

    Your flickr file name is pretty long for your siggy pic. I shortened it here:

    Was:
    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3057/...4e32d131_m.jpg

    Now:
    http://tinyurl.com/5kf2gt

    Saves you 38 characters.

    Change out the link for your photo to the tinyurl one above, and you should be able to get it in now ...

    Also, some people put more than one picture in one picture file (using photoshop or whatever) to get more in, or put the links to all their blinkies, etc, thru tinyurl so you can get more out of it.

    HTH!

    Each of your links contributes a lot of text to your siggy. It looks like you are getting help, so I won't say more.

    Thanks Trina. I figured it out. It took me a while. It wasn't letting the pics from Flickr show up, so I had to use photobucket, even though I can't see it here at work. Thanks ladies!
