Hey guys....quick question.  I have entered some information about some unpostables that I have in the signature area and it gets cut off when I post.  What's up with that?

I notice that a lot of people do this and I see everthing they have typed.  Am I just doing something wrong?  I've also tried putting it in "reader requirement" box, but no luck with that either...it still cuts it off.  Help. =]

Well I see some info about unpostables.  So if there's more than you probably need to delete some spaces.  There's no need to have Angel in there since it's attatched to your posts which has your name.  Also you could fit more if you shortened it to say ARC and put the 1st book on the same line as ARC.

Yep, signatures can only take so much space, so sometimes you need to erase things or put more on each line to make everything you want to say fit. So, it would help to do something like:

Unpostables - Free with order from my shelf:

ARCs: 'first book here'

list the others below

Slight Damage:  'first book here'

list others


You may need to play around with it a bit until everything is visible and looks okay. But, you definitely don't need your name there or to take up two lines introducing your unpostables lists, so changing those things will give you a little bit more space already. Maybe even turn the book titles into links, so you won't need to include ISBNs in your list. Then, if you had to, you could put more books on each line and still have your list be easily readable.
