When I used my dongle I had to have the "no signatures shown in posts" option enabled because my dongle couldn't load the images. It made threads so much easier to read and made the content of the post look far more important than who posted it (if that makes sense). Discussions seemed far easier to keep up with and the general layout of the thread seemed neat and tidy. Do you guys not think signatures are ugly? Having a big fat ass image below every post you make just puts me off. That's why I've always had either tiny images or just text. Limiting signature space is something I've wanted to do but I'd rather not piss off the entire community when I have an option to just unclick it so I don't see them. I just thought I'd post this so I could see how many of you love them and why. Believe it or not, signature's aren't a forum necessary to the point where every online community uses them on their forums. Many forums actually don't use them and when you suggest to use them you get shot down by the vast majority. I firmly believe if I never allowed signatures (or images in signatures), nobody would want them. That's some forum sociology right there; nurture vs nature and all that. Edit: I'm aware m current signature is either a large image of Tyrion Lanniser or a gif of Kagawa/Mata, but I haven't changed that in a long time, as I STILL have the no signatures shown in posts option clicked and I won't tick that again. No signatures > signatures, or text signatures only >.
