What's the standard size for signature images, what size do you use (if you allow them), and what file size/dimensions/animation should I allow? If I allow them, should I allow a smaller size with the option to become a paid supporter and get a larger signature image option?

I'd say 600x200 for your PAID subscribers, and no signatures at all for non-paid subscribers. You'll definately get people subscribing then.

But that depends on which type of forum you're running on.
In a fun, game or clanforum signature pics would be okay. but then only a limited size and a maximum of one image.
I'm admin of a support forum and there, sig pics are not allowed because otherwise the (necessary) clear view gets lost.

But with for-fun forums, friendly communities for small and hobby-like subjects, signature images are pretty good at spicing the community up and allowing members to share a small bit about whatever they want, with the rest of the community.

Alot of people usually end up making ridiculously big sigs, and thats why it ruins things.
Personally I think the best possible dimensions for a sig should be about 420X(-)200, a nice short rectangle.
You never know what some artists can make, and if done right, they actually make your forum look even better.
On my forum, only Premiums get to have sigs. And we have alot of prems. Some get a membership just to rock a sig.
Forums without sigs (depending on niche) look sort of plain and boring. Like an office space.

Edit: Looking back, this really had nothing to do with the original post. :)

I have seen some forums that allow what looked like 640X480 images for signatures. Looking through a thread was more like looking through a picture gallery.

one admin of a forum i was on really used to annoy me as their signature was two large images on top of eachother, it took up too much space.
