I like my sig image, but then it got me banned on one forum, so I vote no.

Mike, it's the stupid 11-30 line text signatures that truly clutter up posts, which everyone seems to be so transparently apathetic about. Did you see what vb is limiting the sig images to? 500x100. That is definitely small, a lot smaller than the sig images of some other forums. I believe it's an evolutionary feature that should be kept. A little change is good. If you don't want a pic sig, simply don't make one. If you don't like pic sigs, don't look at them... just like how I don't look at (example) Bigman's sig.

I don't like them because I have no artistic talent and can't make cool ones.

I've grown quite fond of my sig pic that rage made me. I would like to vote I can keep mine, but everyone else must get rid of theirs. Will there be some sort of grandfather rule if the change is made to remove them? Like the animated avatars in the before times. In the long ago?

Since we are going to have the picture sigs maybe we should have some guildines regarding there use? IE..25 posts before one can post pictures in there sigs(this way to prevent spammers from doing so) and i think it would be a good idea to have a sticky about this in the open forum.

Default Re: Sig Images. Yay or nay?

So far I'm not hating the pic sigs as much as I thought I would, but I suspect that's because they're limited to being smaller than most people's text sigs. The forums I can't stand are the ones that allow multiple 500x500 images in sigs where 90% of every thread is sig images.

It is another thing that I have to censor at work though. I've already removed the not work-appropriate avatars, and while I could probably just block all sig images with a RIP entry I kind of like some of them (the same reason I don't block all avatars). Time will tell whether that becomes a problem for me I guess.

I like sig images if they are SMALL. I try to keep it at 10k or lower if I can. If MikeC gets rid of them its cool either way. No animated sigs no way.

Default Re: Sig Images. Yay or nay?

I just decided to try my signaturebar, but I guess that animated signaturebars aren't allowed. Mine is supposed to be an animated .gif, which has 3 more lines to display.

EDIT: Uploaded a .gif and it displays as a .jpeg.
