Bottom row of sig

DocDoc Registered User, ClubPA regular
The line of report/quote/reply images is aligned next to the bottom of the signature (in Firefox, anyway).

This causes sig-crunching behavior if you have enough text in your sig, as is illustrated with mine. If the row of images were displayed below the sig, it would work better.

    It looks fine for me in Firefox. Maybe a screenshot to show what you're seeing?

    Will do, once I get home.

    For now: if you shrink down the horizontal size of the window, is all the text is squished up by the image bar?

    I know what he's talking about and it happens more often when someone has edited their post... their sig gets crunched to the left more and starts to take up more space. So instead of five lines of text, it becomes more like eight or so. At least, that's what I think he's talking about. I guess the screenie will show best.

    Ah, just looked up another of his posts that wasn't edited and I see the difference now.

    Probably the easiest way to fix that would be to have the Last edited by Doc: part on the line above the edit timestamp.

    How about putting it at the top of the post, to the right of the original post time-stamp?

    Somewhat related: if you have an image sig at the recommended maximum width of 500 px, instead of crushing the (incompressible) image, the buttons will break the h-scroll. It seems to happen most with PMs or edited posts.

    Yeah, that's it. It doesn't do it to images, since you can't make them shorter. It will just break h-scroll.

    By my measurements, in a 1024x768 browser window, the horizontal sig space which is left over after you subtract the avatar box and the "Last Edited By" is 510 pixels.

    My issue with putting the buttons below the sig area is that I hate to expand the space between content by any more than necessary.

    My issue with putting the buttons on the top-row is that I just have a hard time getting used to them there. I probably could, but I don't really want to.

    I've not found, on the whole, that signature squishing has been a problem...But I guess I usually have my window at larger than 1024x768.
