It lost quality when you downsized it.

You mean when i hosted it the website downsized it? When i made it it was 300 x 100 (pixels) and it doesn't really look like it shrunk. Is there a way to fix the fuzziness?

I'm talking about downsizing the file size in kbs. In order to fit the Cafe's limits, you have to downsize the sig to 12kb. In the process, you lose quality in order to fit the limit. Didn't you use some "Save for Web"-type feature in the GIMP?

I just saved it as a jpeg file and then hosted it using imageshack.us. What you said seems right though, about the downsizing. Is there a way to keep it from happening?

Well, Imageshack doesn't automatically downsize images. It's pretty much impossible to have a sharp sig with the limits here so you really can't fix it unless it's well under limits. Now, if you were to use the sig for another site just save it with the highest quality.
