No images in the signatures

in Feedback edited January 2014
The sleek new looked is defiled by the idiotic pictures in signatures.

Let's have a contest to see who can make the ugliest image signature.

    The signatures should have color guidelines. Like Synotic's, his is good.

    None are good, they all suck.

    They make the damn boards look like PicPie or some other flirty chat board infested with sub-16 year olds.

    Oh wait. . .

    Alright, I agree, sort of. No image signatures.

    I was just coming in to start a thread on this exact subject- I'm surprised and pleased to see that somebody else thinks that photo sigs are stupid.

    Ban 'em!

    No Photo Sigs!

    Oh, and one more thing.

    Nebagakid, what makes you think that I care that your post count is about 283? Do those extra 270 posts confer some special status upon you? Do they make you more attractive to the gender of your choice? Do they make your hair shiny and strong?

    Bragging about post counts is also dumb. I think that the post-counting feature should be disabled, too.

    i don't like 'em either. We may bring them back, with a size restriction. but our classy new look is definitely broken up BIG TIME by sigs...

    so they are (OFF) for now

    Ha ha. My reverse psychology worked!

    Leave the image sigs at MacNN.

    we're actually going to turn them back on, but keep them small (140x35) and non-animated. Also, we'll do something about ones that are hugely loud or obnoxious... we'd like to discourage them, but allow for freedom of expression.

    image sigs are atrocious evil things. look for instance at the macnn forums. you might say that the worst thing about them is that they allow image sigs. all they cause is problems. (though i guess you could also say that that forum staff over at macnn which allows the image sigs is pretty bad, too)

    in short, Leave the image sigs at MacNN!

    No image sigs! Period.

    The sleek look just gets ruined by them.

    Actually, if you really really want them, we should elect a panel to decide whether or not a sig is acceptable. It'll keep the rif raf out.

    There is ample room for freedom of expression inside the text box. If the poster is unable to get his/her point across in their prose then their image signature will most likely be annoying.

    And those that re-announce their name, as if we can't read it when it's right next to the post.

    That's a good signature. No need for the silly animated gif there.

    There always has to be some un-artistic PC user bitching about no pic sig usage.

    It's a good thing you have your name right after your post, sinewave, I almost missed reading it on the left.

    Turn this stupid crap off, it has never been on at AI before and there's no reason for it to be on now. It's visual clutter and it's entirely useless.

    Being Mac users we are attracted by such visual nonsense.

    Sleek new look? I come to a message board to read what people say, not stare at the interface!! (sidenote: UBB sucks, get vB instead). The images help you learn who is who, and provide visual feedback. Since with such small files the loading time doesn't increase much, and such small size means the page isn't broken much, then there's not much of a problem


    (Yeah, I know I said I'd give up on this, but it's a different thread... )
