I have avatars and sigs turned off so I don't notice it.

Having a picture in between every post makes it looked cluttered to me. I don't notice the text because its always been there.

If everyone listed their specs in their picture sig it'd be fine, but I think most will just throw a picture in their sig without specs. But whatever, its not a big deal.

I think it makes the forums look like ass and doesn't add anything of value, but its not my forum so if they are here to stay I'll live with them.

The only problem, for me, is that the text is often hard to read when its an actual image, I can't hold control and mouse wheel up the text if I need to read someones specs.

On that note, thing I'll change mine. Much as I hate to admit it, I don't think the Elder God is going to win this round.

You had a good run Cthulhu.

Well, like my SigPic I couldn't get it below the 19.5KB file size without degrading the image, however, by not doing that, the Forums automatically degrade it and that makes the text blurry, but only seems to be in the middle area of my SigPic. Weird. 19.5KB is not big enough for a 500x100 picture if there is going to be any color to it.

I know what I'm about to say is going to stir the crap pot, but is there a way to block sigs?
