  • I hope not. People post the most obnoxious things in images that they cant/wont post in text. Also people love to make images that are are as alrge as the whole page!

    Dont do it! I like having clean forums. I'm not even 100% for the Avatars!

  • Doesn't this belong in the forum improvement thread?

  • Good point, Napoleon. Though GC was a good first guess, I think.

    Nope we won't be doing pictures in signatures. All that does is encourage people to draw attention to themselves through frivolous fluff attached to their posts, instead of what should matter -- what they're saying!

  • ohh, come on..isn't it great to read two or three banners, several dozens of small internet pets and a few of these "what games am i currently playing"-thingies every time someone posts a single line?:D

    no, seriously, the presence of images in signatures usually results in a tremendous waste of space, making it sometimes hard to find the actual content...

    I guess so, But can't you waste a serious amount of space with text too?

    Yes, but space is more likely to be wasted with images.

  • Just to prove a point (look at attachment) yes... that is raw text...

    I don't think anybody was questioning the fact that text can take up a lot of space. They were just saying that pictures have a higher likelihood of being larger than just a text signature. And with that I think this discussion has reached a stalemate.
