Don't like sig images. Doesn't bother me honestly. I have signature and avatars disabled ever since I joined. I hate clutter, especially considering the 1,000 words e-penis computer hardware sigs many people here have. Because I REALLY want to know what firmware you're using for your optical drive!

I hate text sigs longer than ten lines = I hate most people's sigs.

In my days as a mod here, you abided by the ten line rule period. IMO that should still be enforced but I understand there are other things right now occupying the current mod staff.

So regarding pic sigs... YES they should be safe for work so people like Q doesn't have to disable images.

That may be a tall order though considering the escalation of racy content here, which does already include pic sigs.

I mean hell, I'd like my daughter to be able to use this forum as her first non stupid-ass disney community, but I don't think I can for a while until I can explain to her about guys being guys... and camp0rz.

A 500x100 safe for work image (see, there's at least a restriction here on their size) is NOT that distracting, especially when it's smaller and more compact than the big obtuse text sigs here.

Q, here's a link to mine, if you can open it somehow...

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/imag...ine=1212399028

It ain't so bad, and if users here could just make sure theirs aren't NSFW then you shouldn't have a problem enabling images at work.

I agree that at some forums like riceburner communities, pic sigs are huge, distracting, and retarded.

We're better than that. Let's lead by example.

Pic sigs FTW.

I don't mind the ones that people have now, but its going to be abused and it'll probably be used by spammers before long. So I don't really like them.

I don't particularly like signature images as they tend to clutter up the posts. Unfortunately during the upgrade the signature setting, which was global, was moved to individual group profiles and was set to a default of on. Since signatures were not enabled before the upgrade, it makes sense to disable them after the upgrade. Another thing to put on the to-do list
