Default Problems with mah sig

As you can see, my sig is two lines short. However, when I try to make it longer, it says I have to have 5 or less lines. What's going on?

The sig limit thingy frequently detects signatures with less than 5 lines as exceeding the limit for some reason. I'm assuming what happens here is that it detects how many lines there are in the text field where you enter the signature, instead of actual number of lines. I tried pasting your signature into the text field, and it results in 6 lines because of word wrap. It's never actually going to be that long on the forum itself (not even in 800x600 screen resolution), but that appears to be how the automatic detection works. Try shortening individual lines and see if it still gives out an error.

EDIT: On an unrelated note, the entire signature length block thingy never seemed like that good of an idea to me since it neither takes font size nor images into consideration.

Wouldn't shortening lines make MORE lines, not less?

I meant "shorten" as in actually remove parts, not insert line breaks, and see if it works. I'm presuming it will change the number of lines the automatic limit will detect.

although you solved your problem, i would just like to add that sometimes you may have put white text as a space holder and then forget it there, exceeding the limit, this happened to me the other day, and then i noticed there where some invisible "B"s left over from another signature where they were needed.
