*** Poll: Image Signatures

in Feedback edited January 2014
Yes or No?

Should they be allowed?

If yes, they will be limited in size to 140x35, <10k, no animation.

Let's hear what y'all think.

    Yes. Only because sonicblue had such a cool one (that was generated on the fly from his webserver).

    Yes. As long as they meet the size requirements and don't try to grab your attention sig images are fine.

    I don't think it would be a decent Mac board without the option for some user creativity. Furthermore, I have never had a problem loading forum full of thumbnail images. I think some are pretty neat.

    There's one here now that uses anime in an animated GIF. That's sweet. If they can do all that in under 10K I say "more power to them".

    Bright and animated signatures distract attention from the posts. I say if you approve images sigs, they should have to pass a committee before they can be used.

    But I still say no images. Slows it down for dialup users.

    I have a cable modem so for me I'm ok with them but they do need to stay within the proper size.

    I have a contract with Dr. Pepper to use their logo as a sig. Is that okay?

    My vote... I like them... (now if only I knew how to use them... )

    It seems like a visual distraction to the text.

    I lick 'em

    I like 'em too.

    Most definitely not.

    All it will take is for someone to make an absolutely hideous one and in the whole look of the board is ruined. You know that trying to censor individual sig picts is going to be a headache and a half.

    Express yourself in the text box, don't try to bring more attention to yourself with a gaudy rendering of your name.

    I think as long as they're not too big or distracting then it's fine.
  • Reply 16 of 83
    I say no.

    I like creativity but that can be found in people's writing. Also AI always had plenty of posts that were dedicated to mockups and other art work.

    edit: besides, it adds a further visual distinction to the MacNN boards.

    Sounds fine to me. Nothing can be worse than the gigantic, half-screen megasigs I have to trudge through on some other boards.

    No. There's nothing like a bright purple ugly picture to ruin the nice color scheme of the boards.
  • Reply 19 of 83
    Yeah, they're ok. But small is good. Could be just as happy without them too.

    And I'm not a huge fan of sigs and post counts either. I wouldn't mind seeing members reduced to their words alone.

    Back to the question: No, I don't like dem pretty pictures.
