Signature space

I keep getting a message saying I cannot exceed 1500 characters including code, etc., when I try to update my signature.....
I have deleted a lot of things, and don't have as much as some do, and I even had more before this....??

Anyone know what's up with that?

Striving for slimness
until today it was only letting me have 250 characters! Think maybe the more you post the more signature space they give you??? Not sure though just a guess. then again you have nearly 2000 posts so can't see them wanting much more lol
Don't know BL but it happened to me last week, same message so I ended up just getting rid of my tickers.

Much of the trouble comes from using colours and different sizes of text, as each one comes with a code which will use up characters.

So for instance
Week 1: 30st 6lbs
Week 2: 9st 5lbs :clap: Goal reached

Looks like this
Week 1: 30st 6lbs
Week 2: 9st 5lbs :clap: Goal reached

But if I do

Week 1: 30st 6lbs
Week 2: 9st 5lbs :clap: Goal reached

It uses all this (remove spaces)
[ COLOR=Red]Week 1:[ /COLOR] [ COLOR=SeaGreen]30st 6lbs[ /COLOR]
[ COLOR=Red] Week 2:[ /COLOR] [ COLOR=SeaGreen]9st 5lbs :clap:[ /COLOR] [ COLOR=Blue]Goal reached[ /COLOR]
ahhh right - cheers KD, didn't realised that and the text I had/have is all in colour.

Back to basics I think!

LOL - don't look quite the same like that! I can now clearly see why the 1500 limit was exceeded --- think it will be tickers and black text from now on!
Cheers for the help you gave KD - I'm all sorted now :D
