No clever answer to that for a change JB.......
Few dark days at 'Arkham' & away again in a couple o' days but like every bad penny, I keep rolling back....eh, Steve.
I reckon in truth this place needs Steve more than lil ol' me & it's sad that he doesn't feel happy here at the mo'.....it'd just be nice if things got back to normal round here (or in my case ABnormal).

You are wrong C32, this place manages just fine without me, and it's just because I'm a stubborn 'Yorkie' that I'm not posting as much as I used to. It is MY choice not to post. You, on the other hand, bring a lot of light relief and humour to HUKD so, please continue if you can:thumbsup:
#14
Not gonna argue merits with ya but you had to come out of retirement like Rocky himself because someone was posting incorrect/misleading info on the eBay front....does that tell you that anyone's rushing to fill your big Yorkie boots?!?!?!
Anyhow, I'm offski. We should just be grateful that the 'eBay guardian angel' (ahem) is watching over us all...just don't let me catch you wearing some pointy-eared costume........

(PS - Thanks for the kind words...cheque's in the post)

I don't know if Steve would agree to this or not, but would it not be possible for one of the mods to take on one or two of Dinosteveus' sig links, which were probably amongst the most helpful of the sigs out there (or create an ebay sticky with these links)? I realise it could be seen as favoritism but I'd be very surprised if anyone objected given the usefulness of these links & the gratitude that a great number of people owe to Steve & his advice.

Well Paul hardly sleeps nowadays with all of the work he's putting in behind the scenes. Maybe we should just see if anything is done about this during the site update... it can't be far off now.

I think or read people were abusing the facility and self promoting themselves for sites and rep.

It only takes one to spoil it, as we have found out in the past.

Already in some mods sigs and the Misc forum has both threads in a sticky.

Yes advice is taken. Not everything will be implemented initially but will come in phases.

And sigs are gone for the foreseeable future as emmajk42 already noted before.

Edit: Part of the reason was the mods time policing sigs but also I think the posts read a lot better without them cluttering up the flow. So there are more than one reason.

Signature links and options have been switched off for members for the time being. This is because we've experienced an increased amount of spam and self promotion in them.

Alternatively, if you want to put information and links in your profile, please do that. Thanks.

I know they are 'stickies', but if you don't know where to look it's pointless making them stickies, IMO.
So, being a 'long standing' senior member counts for nothing, does it? Thanks. :-( :-(

But what about introducing sigs for solar flares etc who are unlikely to self promote, Like i suggested before.

There should be some sort of compromise, After all a lot of helpful links are going unnoticed and the same questions being asked. (Ebay and quidco springs to mind)

I agree, but it seems Paul has made his mind up. Our opinions for what they are worth, count for nowt.

Well its a fairly easy thing to do and mods still wouldn't really need to moderate sigs.

It seems an easy compromise, I would be interested to know why something can't be done.

The Mods can 'clutter up the flow' but not the Members, we are just as important, aren't we?
This site didn't use to be like this, it was so 'friendly and relaxed' but now the membership has increased these restrictions come in. The more 'great' deals we all post, the more members join and the more restrictions we get. Something seems wrong with this.

As far as I can see the mods and admin always take members opinions into account, you seem to be coming across as a bit of a spoilt child here...just because on this occasion what you want hasn't happened doesn't mean your opinion counts for nothing. You have asked for an answer on the matter, you have now got one...i'd suggest rather than whingeing and trying to change admins mind you just accept it and get back to posting and helping out and having fun etc :)

If you read the sig post and this one you would see that it's not just me that would like the sigs returned.
I have been called a few things in my time, but a 'spoilt child', ummmmm that's a new one.
I have as much right to voice my opinion as you do. I don't appreciate posters like you resorting to name calling to get their point across. Is that what HUKD has degenerated into, name calling??

dinosteveus. You need to understand that there is a difference between listen to an opinion and agreeing with it. When making decisions on this site I listen to what members have to say whether senior members or new ones and use those opinions to help make site decisions. However, that does not mean all opinions and suggestions are implemented - this is an obvious impossibility.

The simple fact of it is that sometimes what you want is not going to happen. In this case you have decided you want sigs (even though you had them disabled when they were active) and that is not going to happen. That's the decision - how you handle that decision is up to you. You posted a week ago or so that you wouldn't return to the site unless sigs were re-implemented, that would be a decision you can make.

Personally I think a 'long standing' senior member should be able to understand that they are valued and important to the site but at the same time that not every decision on the site is going to be made to their liking - yet they should be able to understand that and maybe even support decisions on a site level.

I feel like you see things in very black and white terms. This has been the source of conflict between you and other members in the past and it may be what is happening here. Not everything is black or white, not everything is right or wrong, and sometimes your opinion may only be as valid as another....

If this situation is one where you feel your opinion is definitely, unequivocally superior and the sites decision is entirely wrong and finally that you cannot continue to be a forum member with this - then I suggest your option is to follow up on your previous statement and leave the site. I don't think it's the right thing to do but that choice is up to you.

As you say, say what I mean and mean what I say.

I do support most decisions you make, just because I'm a 'long standing member' doesn't mean I have to agree with them, and unfortunately I don't agree with this, but I'm not the only one.

Not everything is black or white, not everything is right or wrong, and sometimes your opinion may only be as valid as another....

Conflict is a bit strong isn't it? Yes, I do see things differently to you, I don't understand what is wrong with the way I see things. I say things as I see them, what's the point in having 'free speech' if you ain't got the 'balls' to use it or stand up for something you believe in?

I did leave/stop posting because of this, but I 'came back' because somebody needed help with an ebay problem.


You and a few others seem to think that's it's just me that would like to see the sigs returned, it isn't.
As for me having them turned off, I have already explained why. Did you not understand my reason.



Would you object to a poll just to see how many people 'disagree' with the decision?
#38
I think the site looks empty and boring without sigs, i used to like reading others sigs and clicking on the links to read what was on the site.

But at the end of the day the decision is up to the admin, he listens to our opinions but at the end of the day what changes on the site is entirely up to him.
#39
I personally don't care either way :-D
#40
As for sigs being "cluttered" the amount of words in sigs can be restricted, So could be restricted to 500 characters or 50.

I liked sigs also, Some were funny to read and then there was the sensible/helpful links.
