They kind of clutter up the forum, so we're just sticking to avatars at the minute

+ they use up excessive amounts of bandwidth when most people will want around 400x100 pixel banners.

In your user cp you can set if you want to display signatures or not...so clutter or bandwidth shouldn't really have any relevance because people can just turn em off if they don't want to see them.

Partially true - not everyone browsing is a member, alot of guests view the site so unless sigs were disabled for them it would still drain bandwidth, and also few members actually use the usercp to the utmost anyway.
Besides what's the point? Use an avatar if you want to express individuality.

The signature images wouldn't be on hukd servers though, they'd be direct linked from elsewhere so it wouldn't use any hukd resources. The only way it'd effect anyone is if they are on a metered bandwidth ISP, but a few kbs isn't going to really have any effect...unless someone is on like 50 meg a month lol

signature pics are crap!

some of the sig txt on here is bad enough!

Does that explain why your sig has about 8 "enter's" after it?

Billox, I just checked :giggle: :giggle:

Picture sigs are a big no no for me, even if you can turn them off, I like to read the odd sig, so if I turn them off then I would miss out on the people who only have text sigs.

Also picture sigs would add to page load drag, so people will get endless threads saying "Oh man HUKD is slow tonight", when in fact it could be that they are viewing at peak time and their connection is taking a while to display each sig.

Also it is very very annoying when you are reading threads and you get a sig so large that you have to scroll down just to read the nest post, very annoying with a slice of pizza in one hand and can of lager in the other. (here I would roll my eyes and use a mad icon but I am having major problems with Firefox on this new PC so am back to using I.E. for the time being (rolls eyes, lol.)

Oh and using quick reply so can't find the usual forum smileys.

Yes, it does.

emmajk42

Yes, it does.


How's that?:-( :-( :roll: :roll: :roll:

Turn them on so you can see it... !

Er, I was messing with mine, now it's doing the same!!

I give up, I can't get rid of the gap at the bottom of my sig. :roll: :roll:

Gary, seems I owe you an apology, you are right. :oops: Soz. :oops: :oops:

Back on topic - moderation of externally linked images wouldn't be easy with the sheer volume of members, it'd be offputting for visitors having to scroll though (and a killer for dial up) as well as serving no enchancing purpose. Text works just as well and doesn't take up as much space.

Your signature space is larger because of your avatar and info below it
