Heya. It's come to my attention that there is a 500 character hard-limit on user-created signatures for ProBoards. Generally, this should be enough for most purposes, however if your signature includes lots of font styling or links in it, you might very easily pass the 500 character limit while still having a reasonably small signature - and that's no good.
I feel like the limit is unreasonably small, so I've come up with a workaround for it. My own sig is an example of this (as of the time of posting, anyways). I wanted to include clickable links to some of my different profiles, and that eats up a lot of the character limit. I also wanted a random quote I pulled off a Twitch stream and some random thoughts. Though it doesn't take up much page space, and it only appears to be 452 characters plus the horizontal bar, it is actually a whole 727 characters which exceeds the normal limit by quite a bit.
The method I've used to work around it cannot be implemented into the user profile field, unfortunately, but I will change signatures on request should it be needed. If you find yourself hitting the 500 character limit on user sigs, and want to have a larger one, please send me a PM with the entire contents you would like in your signature, and I'll do it for you.
My only request is to please be reasonable if requesting large signatures. I will not expand your signature to include the entire Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise, the story of Ken-Sama, or the Navy Seal Copypasta. please understand
Anyways, that's about it for this post. I'm not sure how often this will be used, but the option is now there. Hope it helps some of you out.
