I'm undecided for now, I could go either way...I have mixed feelings.

no i do not. for many, that would be far too great a power to wield and abuse

another no. the larger the sig, the less likely i am to pay attention to. images would just be more clutter to scroll through to get to the posts.

As Jax said it's just too much clutter. If this is done for some reason, I hope there would also be an option in the User CP to block them.

It is not if you do two things

1. restrict the sizes to something normal

2. import a plugin that restricts redundant sigs from the same poster in the same page.

this could work if you give it a chance, stop being so negative. :D

oh and a hells yes from me!


also whats the difference if you look at a pic or read all the text currently in the sigs now?

I couldn't care less. Nine times out of ten, I have all images turned off anyway.

Yes but with restrictions so people can't use poster sized images.

Darth Instigator
08-11-2006, 02:59 PM
exactly, like 400x150 thats small and have a kb size limit too, or the animated userbars even. I bet after you guys saw my star wars related userbars you would want image sigs

No, I don't like signature images. I would like to be able to embed images into a post rather than use the attachment process.

Yeah, you just got me fired, you f** f****! :mad: Now, since you're singlehandedly responsible, you can support my wife and triplets when I hit the bottle.

Seriously, though, even at home with a high-speed connection, it makes pages load about twice as fast when they don't have to load several dozen images.

No, just one. Junior won't cooperate and let us in on the secret of his/her gender after three ultrasounds, but we're 100% sure there's only one in there. I was just trying to make Cappy feel like fecal matter. Did it work?

I voted yes, but only with serious restrictions to do with size and content... so, I suppose I could have just as easily voted no.

Wannabe saff, now thats awesome. :thumbsup:

It sure seems like SSG doesn't get the hits it used too. Everyone is over on RS. Something needs to be done to lure people back over here.

I'm all for pics in sig lines as long as I'm the only one that can have them.:)

Man... you guys sure know how to make friends. One of you is ripping on the "staff" and the other's making cracks about how everyone is over at another site because we don't have signature images here.

Be sure to put a few coins in the staff tip jar before you start heckling next time, okay. ;)

Darth Instigator
08-20-2006, 07:10 AM
I'm not ripping on the staff, you misread that, I am ripping on those who pretend to be staff. The actual staff members are cool but every forum has people that act like staff, I do too. It was a joke though, relax

Well that's good to hear, but it's sure isn't as busy as it is at RS. The problem over there is the horrible lay out. I just wish more people posted about GG and SSC here at SSG.

Yes I do agree, but I'd like more traffic in the SSC and GG threads. I guess I should post there more and lure some people in. I think I will post a huge rumor about SSC making a 1/6 scale Falcon and see what happens. Hey if DSP2 can do it we can. LOLlol For those that are worried, I was J/K.

Pics in the sig line space

jedi master sal
09-01-2006, 08:44 AM
I am against them. They take up to much space and I hate scrolling through a plethora of sig images to get to someone's post.

Put me down for a no please.

TheDarthVader
09-01-2006, 11:22 AM
I am against the idea too. Because I live in the country, I am still on a slow connection, and it would take a while to load the forum pages if I have to load 10 signature pictures with the posts. I have voted "no".

El Chuxter
09-01-2006, 11:54 AM
Would it be possible for everyone to have a signature image of a different cow?

you could always set the option to view signatures in your user options to no, thus still allowing others to enjoy them while you can't.

this is inaccurate, they would take the same space currently being taken but would include an image instead. And you can set the option to no like I told darth

stillakid
09-01-2006, 12:40 PM
What if you just put tape on the monitor where the images are so you don't have to look at them?

jedi master sal
09-01-2006, 02:39 PM
Okay, the thread has been cleaned up a bit. No flaming or instigating fights on the boards. Those involved have had their posts deleted. Count that as your warning. We're not prone to banning people here and are generally easy going, but don't push it or you will get yourself banned. (Slicker and KH, I don't mean you two.)

Now, back to the topic at hand.

No to sig images, please.

Darth Instigator
09-01-2006, 03:14 PM
I still think you can just set yours to not show, but others that dont know as well should know they dont have to view the sigs therefore dont need to make a no vote, others that want them have a view also. Thats all I said before I got attacked. So we can view sigs and you guys don't have to

Kidhuman
09-01-2006, 03:58 PM
The problem with some people having them and others that do is when you turn them off, you turn everyones off. I happen to like reading sig lines because it contains other peoples trades and who they have done business with. Turning those off would not be good for me and possibly some others as well&

Darth Instigator
09-01-2006, 05:41 PM

I think Colorforms would work best since they come in fun characters and are easily removable!
