Make Signatures Bigger

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'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.
