Default Re: Sig Images. Yay or nay?

I've had dozens of PMs over the years from new users who saw my sig and had questions about a similar system. Several of them have become every-day members.

Like I said, its a PC hardware enthusiast site. It is recommended, and its sort of the "traditional" thing to do on this kind of forum. The pic sigs don't really serve any purpose and people will be more inclined to just stick a goofy picture in their sig than type out their system specs... and even fewer will type their specs into a paint program and include them in their sig image.

Even if you aren't a system-upgrading hardware enthusiast anymore yourself, most people here still are.
