Xerxes, I think there has got to be a way for you to get that file size down. Want to try handing it over to Sarge and seeing what he can do? Maybe he knows some optimisation tricks we don't.
Yeah, I stick by my "One sig per page" for the bigger sigs. I think ones such as mine, Sarge's, SLK's, John M's etc. are fine to be repeated, but Boobless' for example (sorry to harp on your sig Boobguy) could be restricted to once per page. Actually, I really want to just get everyone's dimensions down to, say, 30 x 200 so we can have them on every post. In an ideal world, maybe....
I think the pic you started with, with the skull-spider swaying, was one coolass picture. It just doesn't fit the signature mould.
I think sigs should be simple (actually, I think everything should be simple, as we all know), include your name, and something revealing a little about yourself. Sarge has his Terminator-style cursor and font going on, SLK's got that little heart and the kitty, i've got my name and a smilie. I think having too much detail in our sigs detracts/distracts from the actual message posted.
Basically, I'd love
to see everyone have their own little signature pic (not necessarily animated) at the bottom of each post. Bigger, banner-style pics such as Boobless' and Sorcerer13's really aren't what I consider suitable. Keep 'em simple kids.
