not only is it large in size, it's also a bitmap, therefore huge in filesize. i'd suggest removing it until you find a more suitable size(filesize) image

a small image, even an animated gif such as below can be made as small as 10k, as for server space, have you no webspace as part of your isp account?

1.5 MB LOL

no i cant because i already fully utilise my bandwidth
i mean, i'm playing rtcw right, get into a tight situation, need my reactions, then someone reads this thread and bang, i lose packets, and die, because of the packets you understand, not cos i'm crap
you need webspace
i think i'm safe in saying if you dont change the link, being a 1.5 MB file, i will go into the forum settings and remove the ability to have images in sigs at all

<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">well, i'm not suggesting any size really. you mailed me that image at 12k, thats cool as far as i'm concerned - although i think it could be brought down to about 3 or 4k - i just cant host it for you. personally i dont like forums with pictures in sigs, just takes too long to load popular threads. also puts more strain on the server that hosts the board. tbh i like the fact that this forum has no proper avatars, as at times it can be slow anyway. 20 25k pics on the same page would bring it to a halt when the net is busy, that i am sure of

Image 4k

just think about it, 1.5 megabytes, on 56k, even if that did mean a true 56,000 bytes per sec (very rare) it would take someone over 4 minutes just to load that image. that's why if you hadn't removed it i would have done so myself
