Well if someone wants to ask questions regarding hardware then they can post their system specs. Not like most noobs who ask the hardware questions bother posting their specs in their sig or the post anyway...

I'm not a noob, I ask alot of hardware/software questions and I would find it very inconvenient to post my specs only in related threads. If anyone finds a few simple lines of data at the bottom of my posts annoying, then it is their problem, not mine. I find the content of some posts far more annoying, but I don't complain.

EDIT: The primary reason that I find signaturebar images annoying, is because I only have a dialup connection, and they significantly slow down page loading. Most signaturebars have print so small that I can't read them anyway.

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.

Also, the forum is already starting to look cluttered with the sig images we have. Just my opinion though...

I would agree completely. I've seen other people with similar setups and I can ask them questions about their computer setups if I'm having an issue with something. It also makes it a lot easier for someone to offer advice when everything you have is on display. I've looked up the manuals for peoples boards multiple times to figure out where certain bios settings were.

A good example I can think of has been power supplies. The 8800GTX cards have really brought in a larger concern for the power supply the computer is using. Being able to see what power supply someone is using as well as all of the other devices it is running makes it easier to troubleshoot issues if it was being caused by a weak powersupply.

Exactly.
