Your sigs are too long.
 
ok... this has been mulled over a bit with other mods... so, um, I'm gonna keep it simple and hope this doesn't peeve anyone...

malfunction: your sig is too long. Can you shorten it?

geforce4ti4200: your sig is too long. Can you shorten it?

Some of you also have long sigs... long like having to hit enter more than 10 times... others of you have long sigs, but at least make them wrap so they're not too long.

This is not a call-out thread. I think it'd be a good idea if we voluntarily kept our sigs from being monsterously big...

Some of us do use lower rez's..., or tile the windows on our desktop, or surf on a home theatre pc...

I'll go along with the fact some sigs are too long...

hell I could stack my sig all the way down if I wanted to... I display it the way i do and have done for years because it is easier to load and read my posts (if anyone cares to :) )

but yah I am with rage on this...

Clay 08-26-03 09:42 PM

I'll second that
 
Yeah, long sigs just dirty up the screen IMO. What's funny is that 99% of the ppl don't read them anyway so what's the point? I'd prefer that we just have a link in place of sigs so that it's up to individual if they want to view it or not.

I think it may help those that *wrap* their text if "somebody that knows" would show us how to do the sigs with smaller text... Sazar, yours is presently huge IMO, but may benifit from a text size change...

text size change ?

I am using small text as is...

maybe its my resolution... it looks tiny on my monitor... @ 1280x1024 :)

It supa tiny for me (1600x12000)...looks like 8 or 9px to me. That should be same scale regardless of user screen res. What up rage? :D

ragejg 08-26-03 10:05 PM

...BAH!! ... and... D'OH!! :D
 
ok, I adjusted text size briefly to look @ yours, Sazar... sorry... I have to use "largest" on my htpc a lot...

but I still believe >10 line sigs (10 hits of enter key, not wrapped, text not smaller) at any resolution is too much, no matter what the resolution...

I'm not gonna make jabs with things like "counterproductive", "distracting", or "pointless", for my britches aren't really all up in a bunch about this, but I do feel that my opinion is shared with others around here...

Wish more ppl shared your common sense ragejg. Why ppl get so bent is beyond me. So yeah, sigs are fine and all but as with anything they can go to extremes.

I guess I should edit mine, seems a bit big to me...:D

digitalwanderer 08-27-03 09:42 AM

Is mine too big? Should I go for me abbreviated version?
