It has recently been brought to our attention that size of some of the ookla speed test results used in signatures have become rather large and can be up to 6x that of the actual forum post. We have already asked some users to please amend their signatures.
Whilst re-reading an old thread last night, I noticed a post from 2019 where the users signature was literally taking over the whole thread with these enormous graphical results. It looked pretty awful (not to mention monotonous and overbearing) as I scrolled down the page on a PC, so goodness knows what it must be like on a mobile device.
To give an indication; these images are 750 x 400 pixels on a monitor with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080... which in old money is 9¼ x 5 inches. If you are anything like me and often have other things on the go and never view your browser in full window mode, then this one image is literally taking over half my visible window. When the same user posts more than one reply in a thread, it soon becomes messy and an eyesore.
Based on the fact that this particular user hasn't visited the forum for a couple of months I can only assume that Ookla has recently changed something their side as I'm not aware of it being a problem until the past week. I have tried to set a limit on the maximum signature size, but this doesn't appear to have any effect on signatures that were previously in place before I made the changes.
If you do have an Ookla speed test result in your signature, would you please check its size and if necessary, change or remove it. Admins will automatically delete any that we come across without any notification to yourselves.
Thank you for understanding.
