Signature length

My current signature is approx 365 characters w/ spaces and shows as 5 lines on the forum. when I attempt to edit it, adding 20 or so more characters, I get an error. (only allowed 1000 characters and 6 lines).
I know I have seen much longer signatures than mine. Any idea what the issue is?
I have copied the signature into a word doc to make sure it was only 5 lines and did a character count too just to verify.
Thanks.

The character limit (which is 1000) includes BBCode, which with the variations of font and colour brings your total up to 994 including spaces.

If you take out the BBCode, the limit is 500 and yours is at 367.

Thank you. What is the BBCode? And how do I figure char count w/ the BBCode?

I got the character count under control. But the error continues to say I have too many lines. Where I cam adding text still makes the line shorter than the previous line. ??

New update below: (line 4 has characters added)

The BB code are the phrases that change the font and color of the font that you have in your signature.
Here are the examples for the BBcode:
Jeep Wrangler Forum - BB Code List

The color bbcode is the one that is taking of the most space.

Odd. I write code for my wed page (I don't know formal terms as I am self taught on this stuff) and if I want to change color it takes one command, opening and closing command that is, but that must be working differently w/ the color codes here. [orange] and [/orange] should be a total of 17 characters total.

That is correct, when changing the color of your signature using the BBcode as demonstrated, it take account for all of the characters.
I know this was not of much help, but did this clear up your questions at all?

Thanks for your help, but it really has not cleared up why my signature will not work as I wish it to. Oh well, on to more important things I guess.

I have removed the /'s from your signature so that you can get a more accurate number. Add in approximately 25-30 characters for the /'s.
As you can see even though your current signature appears to take up 5 lines, as it is written it uses 10.

It appears that you changed your mind about colors but did not remove the previous color's BBcode. An easy way to make this work is to just backspace and change the color name. You can also save a lot of space by grouping your color rather than coding each line of text individually. This was just a work up I did. You can see the outcome and I have reversed the /s so that you can see how it was done.

Thanks! I'm not sure how you were able the pull out the code w/ the signature, but it makes perfect sense now. When I code I certainly group font and color codes, but obviously this signature DIY code box jumbles things up but good.
I'm still not sure what adding text to the 4th line
", 4.56 Yukon gears & Teraflex BRK frt & rr"
throws the signature over the limit, but so be it. I adjusted.
Adding this all in the signature lets folks know what's on board when I start asking questions. Thanks again.

If you have a min., what's the code look like now for my signature? I copied to Notepad to remove all code, saved a blank signature to clear all code, then added the text back from notepad... added the color to the entire signature once in the box, then changed the fonts.
Curious how b0rked the code looks now.

Okay this is what it looks like now. I don't see in your actual signature above where you have different colors or fonts so there should not be this many BBcodes. Try typing in your entire signature without BBcode. Once that is done, highlight the entire signature then choose your font and color once. Let's see if that works or if the system is adding all of this code by itself. Also notice all of the bbcode after the line you are having a problem with. The code is the problem.

Here I have removed all of the BBcode after BRK frt and it accepts the line.
