JPEGS, GIF Files etc as Signatures

Postby Sainternist » Fri 08 May 2015 1:55pm

I've never been a fan of this. It can serve as a distraction from the content within a thread. Most of them seem to stick out like a dog's pair of testicles. Its almost like the forum user has been given some sort of advertising billboard. Forum users having a neatly sized avatar to the right of screen is sufficient enough, in my books.

I would be happy if the Moderators considered disabling that particular function.

Cheers!

The mods were only a few days ago discussing this.
Specifically whether or not there should be a limit to the size of sigs, as there is to the size of avatars.

The expressed concern about sigs being too big was that when a poster with a large sig image posts numerous times in a thread, people have to scroll past it over and over again. The mods discussed changing the rules to limit sig size or PM'ing those we felt had a "too big sig".

No conclusion was reached. So if posters have input, please fire away. So to speak.

I think it is like posters you don't like reading. Takes all of a millisecond to move past it.

but for posterity here's a last look.

I did not know you could do this. Thanks. Problem solved.

Users like WindSister have stopped giving me headaches every time they post.

Good to know I wasn't the only one, mate. It seems the rest are more than happy to have loud inane images cluttering their screens. Perhaps they are desensitized to it? But hey, each to their own.

To me, it says a bit about the "look at me" type posting. Arn't I important.

i am so happy u've finally found a 'mate' to gossip on with Stinger.
... gossip on , its amusing , but please get it right

Its not look at me ... its look at how fabulous i am.
:)
... more fabulous than you , anyways.

Carry on though as u do
but dont stalk me like you have others around here ,
and have been called out for doing by the mods.

... 'that' sort of attention from an ol bear like yourself is not desired.

Comprehende ?

Are you saying Saynta is really Stinger? How do you know for sure it is actually Stinger?

Also, I don't gossip and nor was I gossiping in the first place. Thank you.

Has he denied it?

Baits all the same people... in a neutered kinda way.

Resorted to supporting complaints about sig sizes in an attempt to bait gaz.... very likely the most pathetically small thing I've ever seen here.

And takes swipes at the gen forum from the admin forum because he's obviously not allowed to post there (anymore).

But. Must. Keep. Trolling...... :roll: :roll: :twisted: :evil: :wink: :D
