What was the max signature length before the setting was changed? Jon Harald Søby 11:16, 19 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The signature length limit wasn't implemented before the change, so there wasn't a limit other than how much the servers could hold, I expect. The setting was given its default value of 255 because some value had to be selected. --ais523 16:14, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I see. /me wishes that en.wp would get a rule disallowing colourful signatures. They are extremely annoying. Jon Harald Søby 22:24, 19 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
