    When attempting to update my signature today, I was told that:

    The following errors occurred with your submission:
    1. Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 5 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be counted as multiple lines.

    What I don't get is that I've had no previous problems with updating my banner/"credits" line of the text. I know that there's the forum rule of 5 lines only, but I'm not entirely sure why it's coming into effect now.

    Blank spaces count as lines.

    But if that's the case, why's my previous signature acceptable?

    Maybe you had that signature in place before we were able to control them with forum software. Anakin's avatar is like that. He currently has an animated one because it's been there since before the VB upgrades.

    Ah, that'd make sense - thanks :)

    It makes me sad though that my prettily colored lines of text and stuff will have to go, though. :/

    Is it possible to use flash animations in a signature? And if so, Am I allowed to have one that has sound effects... like a -burp- when my monster opens his mouth? :D

    I doubt the image would be under 100 kb. Praise the Flying Spaghetti Monster for that. :p

    No, flash animations aren't allowed (nor is HTML, so one can say that one precludes the other). As for the sound, that would be a no as well in any case; while it may be "neat" to you most find it annoying especially when you are browsing late at night.

    You can make your own burping noise that way it'll be more realistic and no one will get annoyed at you :)
