The main reason I became a regular at nV News is because there are no garish .sig images, and the avatars were customizable but not overt.

I just despize boards/threads where .sigs consume more real estate than the message body. There's no friggin excuse to have a .sig longer than your message; it says you care more about your vanity than your ideas.

Say no to large or animated avatars. Any truly creative person can work within low-bandwidth boundaries to make a distracting—uh, i mean attractive—avatar.
