Signature Images

Why dosen't tatysite opt to allow them? Is it becuase it takes up to much space to do so? I really miss being able to have one, it'd kinda makes the experience on a forum more personal when you can show off your flashy banners or whatnot

I wonder as well. And we can't post img tags either as far as I know.

True, but not everyone does that. It's fun you get more personal with everyone. You memorize who people are by their signatures and avatars and recognize their posts etc, it's a really cool concept! It's like your own little area to be yourself.


LOLLLLLLLL! I love your signature, when did i say that?

Edit: march 23rd duh... Found it hahahahahahh! That was a hilarious quote.....glad you found it amusing

Because some are ugly

No, just kidding... It's because it can take a long time to load for some, and it can be distracting. Also, really, some are ugly! After browsing some forums for a while, my eyes hurt because of the flashing colors etc.

The decision is up to the admins anyway, not moderators. If the admins decide that this feature should be added, it will.

That being said, people can say in this thread if they would like (or not) this feature added to let the admins know of the general opinion on this.


And banners may become allowed one day, but images in posts are a big no.

Agree.

If there would be signature pictures allowed I wish they were very small cause it looks really stupid when some same big image is shown after every single post. I´ve seen forums where signatures have gotten ridiculous proportions *cough* http://board.theveronicas.com/index....ic=18020&st=20

I really can't stand signature images, for all of the reasons mentioned by Queenie and Leni, and for the simple reason that they just make the whole forum look a mess. If they were to be allowed they should be limited to a fairly small size, and if at all possible, should all be the same size to keep things looking nice and tidy.

That is seriously ridiculous. Most of the comments on that page are just "bump" followed by a huuuuuge signature

I agree. A signature image should be no longer than say...250x150. Other than that it's just TO big and to distracting.


I'm going to make this a poll.

Yah, tatu.fatal had a signature size limit of 200x500

Uh, hold on talyubittu...do you realize how small 250x150 is?

I'm thinking 200x400

Hey guys, just cause everyone will vote for signature images doesn't mean it will actually happen, so don't get your hopes up. It's not news - users have been asking for this before, but in the end it's the admins' choice.

OMG Please do not add signature pics to this forum... Maybe I'm just use to the look of the forum and don't like the idea of a major... but Banners piss me the fuck off for reasons mentioned by Queenie and Leni.

But seriously, one of the things I absolutely love about this forum is that they don't allow sig pics. As Kyro said, the forum looks neat and professional. I don't know about the rest of you, but I take pride in this forum because it looks soooo much better than all the other forums I've seen. Quite honestly, I have yet to find a forum that looks better... ok yes the color scheme is a bit odd (Tan?), but it works and it makes me smile everytime I log on.

Out of the same reasons as stated above by a few people. Technically, pictures in signatures slow down browsing the forum especially if you are on a bit slower connection or your computer doesn't have a very fast graphic card. Then, the forum looks messy.

I agree. But many forums have regulated banners as well. I don't see how loading a small image would be any more complex or time taking than loading the forum pictures.

Try an older notebook and some slower connection and you'll see. If you have 20 posts displayed by page and each have pictures on the left (avatars) and under (in signatures), then it might become heavy. The messy part is still valid. What are your reasons of having pictures in signatures except as specified in your first post?

There really isn't one other than that. They actually do serve no practical purpose. But looking at it from a..."Different' perspective, I guess it's kind of like a virtual style? You dress how you want to in reality, and on the net, nobody can see you, so you can express your personality through colors and images and such. Personally, I like displaying my work becuase I like it when people comment on it, its fun to see the reaction of someone towards something I've created. I'm not exactly sure why, but for some reason it does. Other than that, no, there is not a reason why the forum needs them.
