Is there some way to limit the size of user's signatures, and possibly disable the use of pics in the signature? One of my pet hates is scrolling through a forum and discovering that 90% of the content on the screen is stupidly long signatures being repeated over and over.... thoughts?

No offense to anyone, but I totally agree with this. Let's keep the pics in the Pic section. Will make the surfing experience more pleasant.

little sigs are ok in my book, the rule of thumb though is they shouldn't be any bigger then your average banner add.

Is that about an inch? That sounds good. Get much bigger than that an it gets kind of cumbersome.

It is possible to disable sig pictures.

The rule of thumb is to use smaller pics and only have your sig once in a thread though -- that works well for me personally.

I understand what you're saying quick...but most people don't do it like you said. The number of threads with huge signatures is getting bigger....I'm on cable, so speed isn't the problem, its just a pain the arse trying to read while filtering through peoples huge signatures.

Go check out the Toymods forums in oz to see how much better it is not having long sig's. How do we get into out profile to change things too? I must be stupid cos i can't find it! :D

You have to click on log out then on the next window click on profile, it will then let you make whatever changes you want.

We could always have Malloy add a 'view signatures' option to the BB...

If you see people with sigs that are too big let me know and I'll talk to them.

I will have to think about the sig thing. I typically do not run one anymore, since I now fully understand how it slows the masses down.

Sigs are really cool though, and it gives everyone the option to showoff their cars.

I understand what you mean Malloy, but so does the pictures page, isn't that why you made it in the first place? :p

I think small text signatures are fine because they don't really detract.

quick,
no problems, if I find an example of what I mean I'll tell ya.

Pictures in signatures

Get rid of the pictures in the signatures. You already have a place on the left to post a picture no need for one in your signature too.

I'm all for getting rid of picture sigs. Picture sigs are one of my pet hates for sf.com, they piss me off no end.

All that is needed is text and perhaps a hyperlink to pictures of your car. That way, if someone wants to see it they will go to the link. If not, it won't get in their way.

I think I have to agree with everyone else here on this after accessing on a dialup thi weekend. Its not much of a concern on a high speed connection, but on dialup, the pics in sigs slow load time BIGTIME.

I say, if ya wanna show off your car, use it as your avatar, like Quick does, or post it in the Pics Section.

Just my 1/50th of a U.S.D.

:lol: What's up, Ross!?

Ok, ok.... I'll avoid using the pic in my signature from now on.
Perhaps we should turn it off or make it a user option.

Chris, I just thought it funny that you said you would moderate anyone with a big pic, when you were the only one with a big pic.
I hope you noticed my smiley ;)

BTW, where is the option to view all new posts?

Funny thing is that's a smaller pic. :)

When you log in check the upper right on the main page... there is a textual link there to view all new posts.

C'mon Chris, you're not playing fair.
I'm not talking about the little pic of your MkII to the left of your message.

This thread was started by Norbie, then there was a reply by 82spearco, then suprafiend, then yourself.
At the bottom of your message was a pic of your MkII and MkIV together.
This must have been about a quarter of an 800 x 600 screen size.

And now, just minutes later, it's not there.

;)

I'll just chime in to say that I agree with the others.

I don't like to see any pics in the sigs. It just slows it down and forces you to scroll more than you would otherwise. Leave the pics for the pics section.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it takes about as many bytes too!

That's my 2 pennies...
