Talyubittu, We had this discussion between moderators not a long time ago and everyone voted against pictures in signatures. I guess there were reasons for that.

As for expressing yourself, there are a few threads with pictures on the forum and a whole section The Island of Arts where you can show us your work.

True. And I respect the decision made, but I do have to point out that the island of arts section does recieve less views that most of the forum does. I for one, know I don't visit it often. It's easier to associate artwork with someone when their signature is recognized as theirs.

It seems a decision has been reached. Thank you for weighing in on z' matter.

I have my experience with tatugirls.de with their image tags and signature pics. If you want to follow a thread, it is really demanding. Messages containing less than a half dozen of words, smilies almost more than words, huge pictures in the messages and signatures expanding up to screen height. You completely lose your view, overlook messages and soon you get tired. So I read only very few threads there. If you want to talk/discuss, it's far better, if you don't have such frills. There is enough room for individuality with your personal area to the left and the (verbal) signature area at the bottom.

P.S.: If you are really creative, you can even make your signature pictures with "character art".

We should have signatures instead of profile pictures.
I mean... if we can't have both...

But profile pics don't affect the appearance or loading speed of any pages other than your profile page...

Thats still not creating a t.A.T.u. related image or any type of image you want to create. If the images are regulated to where they are not to distracting or big, I honestly don't see the harm in using them. As long as the forum stays professional looking.

I guess it's just diff. for those who have come from/spent a lot of time on a forum where signatures were allowed. Talyubittu and I are both from Fatal and signatures were a big thing there. Everyone could show off their creativity through their sigs, it's harder to do that in a 100x100 avatar. It also had a signature request thread where people would post pics, text, and colors they wanted in a sig and it would be made for them. And, yeah, everyone gave each other feedback on their signatures. Also, about people commenting on sigs, on fatal you couldn't find a thread where someone didn't respond to someones sig. It's not egotistical, or, as you said coolasfcuk "petting on the shoulder," it's just fun to get your work recognized . Everybody gave each other feedback, be it positive or negative. Comments on sigs actually helped a lot of people. When I started on fatal I sucked ass (ask Talyubittu) but now I consider myself pretty decent. It really helps when people can critique your work, especially if you really enjoy making sigs and you're trying to improve.

Also, I didn't think tatu.fatal looked "unprofessional." It was very fun for me. I also go to other forums who allow sigs and they are somewhat regulated so they look presentable. Some who are used to tatysite may think tatu.fatal looked bad but I'd rather have a fun, colorful, creative forum than a dull, "professional"-looking one. After all, this is only a forum, not a press conference. It should be about fun, anyways.

It's not gonna break me that this forum doesn't allow sigs, but I def. wouldnt complain if it did.

400x200's absolutely not so big.
I don't see how it would harm to forum.

I guess this just isn´t a bohemian forum

And I seriously doubt that very many of the potential signature posters would be "developing artists" like you guys...

I have forums that have those big signatures. It seriosuly annoys me and makes me tired easily.

But at the same time I do understand people that want a bit more freedom to express themselves. Sometimes I feel like I wouldn't mind using small graphic elements myself.

I don't see a bit problem here though. This forum does have all options needed to switch signatures or attached images off.

Another forum I often read does have sigs and I don't have any problems with it as they have strict rules regarding those sigs (amount of lines of text and images, image-size restricments). Plus they have that thread to discuss them that works like style police and they have a couple of popular signature artists that forumers feel honored with getting sigs from. They have quite a high average age of visitors though, which also helps of course but I wouldn't say tatysite is a kindergarten either.

So my vote is either 'yes but with limitations' or 'hell no no no never'

I think banners should be allowed. This is about the only messageboard I've ever been on which doesn't allow images in signatures.
Of course there would need to be a size limit. I hang around on one MCR forum and some people's signatures take up the entire fucking screen which is a pain in the arse to scroll through.
So yeah, banners should be allowed, but with a size limit.
But this forum - as most of us realised a long time ago - is not a democracy. So it really doesn't matter if the majority vote we should have banners. If the Mods don't want it then we won't get it. End of story.

Do they even cure you...

my god, stop your moaning and look at the votes... so far more people do NOT want banners....like 30% to 60% so what's the point you are making?

not like i post much on this forum, but one of the reasons i like to browse this forum more than others is because there aren't banners. all the pedestrian designs of other forums are really far too distracting and i find myself critiquing the banners and signatures more than reading the actual threads.

The point I'm making - if you would care to actually read my first post - is that even if the majority of people wanted banners, if the Mods disagreed with popular opinion then we still wouldn't be allowed them. Therefore a poll/vote is a total waste of time.
What the Mods want, the Mods get. End of story. I wasn't "moaning" - I was just stating a fact.
Besides, so far only 18 people have voted. There are hundreds of members on this forum - are 18 votes really a true representation of the views of the members?

I wouldn't really say mods, rather admins.
You know, the people who rule this site.
I think if everyone really wanted banners, you'd get banners - but as you can see, many agree that it's unnecessary. And it makes the forum unique. So quit whining 'cause it ain't gonna happen
