I'm sure a lot of you have seen signatures that are so big that the bottom of them is cut off and you can't see the whole thing.

Signatures should be able to be made bigger, or if that feature won't be added, there should be a pop-up saying
Oops! It looks like your signature is too big, and part of it will be cut off at the bottom. Would you still like to save it?
if you click “Submit” and your signature is cut off at the bottom so that part of it is completely obscured from view.

I'm not sure if this is necessary. We've had suggestions asking to completely remove signatures because they take too much time to scroll through.

The signature length is meant so that no one needs to scroll forever through the forums due to long signatures. I think the current length is just fine. Others may think differently, of course.

Maybe there could be a function to “show more” or “show less” of long signatures?

I think the character limit should maybe possibly be changed from 2000, and/or actually showing what it would look like when you click submit, because on the actual page it cuts off more than you think. But for sheer size of verticallity, I'm sure you'd want this, but you can achieve a “bigger” signature using
[code][/code]

Like look at mine for instance, I used the code tag because it scrolls, and I can fit more things in it.

That moment when…
1. you accidentally go from one forum to another...   2. you try to help, but get beaten to it...   3. you read a post in all caps...   4. you post on the forums and your post isn't very constructive...   5. you end up not helping...   6. you post something before you're finished... 7. you post and it turns out to be a necropost...   8. you finish writing your post, but by the time you post it, someone else has practically said the same thing...   9: you share a CCE or DTAE before it's done...   10: you share a game before it's done...   11: you accidentally unshare a project you shared just moments before...   12. you accidentally report your own comment...   13. you accidentally reset your cloud highscore... 14. you accidentally delete your own project that you just finished...   15. your topic has existed for 4 years and it turns out to be a duplicate...   16. you finished making your project but there is no wifi to save it...   17. you sign in after a year, but you forgot your password, so you go to recover, but you own a trillion emails...   18.you necropost then 5 weeks later someone replies to your necropost, telling you not to necropost...   19. you click a topic with the intent to reply on it but it gets closed right when you click on it so you're unable to reply...   20. someone says your topic is a duplicate and the last post on that duplicate was posted 6 years ago...   21. you come up with a great suggestion to improve Scratch then it turns out to be a duplicate...   22. you worked super hard on a remix but it dosen't save...   23. you accidentally close your best topic...   24. you get lots of notifications, but they just turn out to be studio messages...   25. you comment on a user's profile but it turned out to be the wrong user...

That's a good idea, but I think I'll keep my signature simple.

And when I mean simple, I mean having to fit 2 banners, 11 links to random YouTube vids, 3 links to all 3 of my clickers and some extra stuff into one small space.

Support for the warning if your signature is too long

This would be useful, as then people could be sure that all of their signature will be displayed when they make it.
