Ok, this isn't exactly a tutorial but at least future makers will be able to read it.

The thing is this...
When you make a Signature make sure you look at the size in bytes instead of kilobytes because AnimeSuki rules state that total size of your Signature must be 50,000 bytes NOT 50Kb
So it's theoretically possible to have a sig that's 50k yet larger then 50,000 bytes. Bellow is an example.
A sig of 2 images...
= 1000 bytes
= 1024 bytes (note the capital "K" in "Kb")
= 1024 bytes (read: "kibibyte")
More Info in the Wiki Article
This is 49.2 Kb
which is 50,473 bytes
... hence it's OVER THE LIMIT
To clarify, here's a quote from one of the administrators.
- The mesege was directed at this particular Signature -
