Can someone resize the smilies?

i just got a notice for adding the happy birthday smilie to m y siggy. i had it on for about 24hrs. I stupidly thought that all the smilies listed here were ok to use. Just a suggestion but I think Someone should make sure all the smilies listed are within the limits.

A bunch of them actually were resized a while back to be within siggy limits. The ones that are left that aren't within limits are intended to only be used within posts and not within siggies.

ok....... then maybe they should be grouped off in a section called for posts only?

Re: Can someone resize the smilies?

Having a signature is a privilege and it's your responsibility to make sure that the images in the siggy are within the limits. The smilies on DS are provided to be used in posts. Some are small enough to use in siggy's and some are not. Like Andrea said, there have been quite a few that have been resized so members can use them because they are more popular and many members like to use them. If there are images that you want to use in your siggy, but they are hosted by DS and are too big, you can always save them to your own computer, resize them and then host them somewhere like Photobucket to have for your personal use in your siggy.

I'm not positive, but I don't think it would be possible to have separate sections for smilies allowed in siggy's and those that are not. I am an Admin of a different message board and it's not possible to split the smilies up-there is just one group available for members to use. Plus, it would be really time consuming for the Admins to go through them all. Admins are the only members that can add new smilies and they have enough to do. We all work really hard to make the board run smoothly and going through the smilies just isn't a priority.

yes, its not possible on another message board i'm on either. however they have smilies in different groups here. there's happy and laughing, signs, mad, etc. so it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Can someone resize the smilies?

True, they are in groups, I had forgotten about that. If you have time, maybe you could go through them all and figure out which are too big to be used in siggy's and then send one of the Admins a PM listing those you found to be too large for siggy's to see if they would be able to create a separate group for them. I can't promise anything as they are busy, especially with the holidays here. But perhaps they could add it to their "To Do list" for the future.
