    As you can see right now, my signature is big as fuck, taking over ~16% of my entire screen (yes, I calculated it). With the recent IPB 3 update, it's being automatically stretched, which is a big problem with large screens (I have a 1920x1200 one). I don't want to completely think of a new one though, so I wanted to know if there is any way of hindering IPB from stretching it or making it not look more important than my post (because I have that negative feeling everytime I see one of my own posts).

    The code looks like this (yes I know, I'm horribly overusing the <table> tag here):
    HTML:
    <table border="3" rules="all" style="font-family:Trebuchet MS; background-image:url('http://bsv-lueneburg.de/svprg/daten/Selbi/Grey.png');" align="center" cellpadding="5">
     <tr>
      <td align="center" colspan="2">
       [B]<font size="3">Please excuse any bad English in this post.</font>[/B]
      </td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
      <td align="center" valign="top">
       <a href="http://www.speedtest.net" target="_blank">[IMG]http://www.speedtest.net/result/1170999057.png[/IMG]</a>
       <br>
       <font size="3">[i]Speedtests[/i], can you trust them any more?</font>
      </td>
      <td valign="top">
       <table border="0" width="100%" height="100%" rules="rows">
        <tr>
         <td valign="top">
          [CENTER][IMG]http://www.hapisan.com/invert.php?uname=Selbi">[/CENTER]
         </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
         <td>
          <table border="0" height="70" width="100%">
           <tr>
            <td align="center" style="font-size:30pt" valign="middle">
             [B]<a href="http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_ERaZor" target="_blank">Sonic [i]ERaZor[/i]</a>[/B]
             <br><br>
             <div valign="bottom" align="right"><font size="3">... The [B]Exploding[/B] Adventure</font></div>
            </td>
           </tr>
          </table>
         </td>
        </tr>
       </table>
      </td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
      <td colspan="2">
       [CENTER]In the sky the mighty Eagle doesn't care 'bout what's illegal<br>
       On its wings the rainbow's light flying to eternity[/B][/CENTER]
      </td>
     </tr>
    </table>

    width: auto should do the trick. So,
    Code (Text):
    1. <table border="3" rules="all" style="width: auto; font-family:Trebuchet MS; background-image:url('http://bsv-lueneburg.de/svprg/daten/Selbi/Grey.png');" align="center" cellpadding="5">
    If you want I can waste my time rewriting it to use less tables/proper HTML or tableless.

    width:auto did the job just fine, thank you! :)

    And if you want to rewrite this signature with less table bullshit, go ahead. I'd be honored.
