My rule of thumb is this, if your sig takes up the whole screen, it is way to big and the picture sized needs to be reduced or the text needs to be removed. If your sig takes 3/4ths of the screen, it still needs to be smaller.
If we are going to make a limit, I'd say limit it to two per poster.
Note: If you want to measure your sig length. Take the line above the sig and put it at the top, and see where the Edit and Quote buttons land on your screen.
The size on some wouldn't even be an issue but they have it verticle like a profile picture and it takes up 5 inches.
