Default More pics and more Sig options

We can only post 10 pictures for some reason, I was told because of spam but only about 5% of the spam that comes through actually posts pictures and about 99% of the time they don't post 10 or more. Seems like with a car forum you would want the option to post as many as you can, the more the better, rather than having to make multiple posts.

Also, I was trying to put a picture of my car in my signature (since it is a car forum) and I noticed the max size was 500x100. I am cool with the 500 but 100 makes the max size of the picture either very small or long and very slender. Maybe increase that for the use of offsite pictures rather than the option to upload it yourself? 500x200 would be perfect and it doesn't really increase the file size too dramatically. 20kb seems kinda small as well.

I say up the pic count for members with over 10 posts, and allow no links until then. Spammers are looking for links, if they can't put a link in their post they will leave. Contributing members with over 10 posts should be able to post many pics and are allowed to post links.

I'll see what I can do with the picture limit

I agree, 10 is a little low!

I've updated the maximum image count. Unfortunately there is no way to do it by usergroup, so we have to keep that in mind in setting it. 38 images per post is the current value - I dont think that should be a problem.
