Most of us find them obnoxious, so there aren't any.

And now you've made me discover it :I

If a graphic gets added to that, should probably be a round green circle with a blue "E" or "e".

I always forget that that's there. I dunno why I never made a new button for it. Maybe I'll do that today.

Although it's pretty stupid that there's an edit button right below the damn edit button. This software is idiotic sometimes.

I don't hate them. I didn't like them on Dtoid cause it gave people a reason to plaster their blog everywhere. I'm cool with them as long as there are rules saying how big images should be, what can be linked, etc. But people usually end up missing those rules, so no sigs is a good thing.

Ya but this software allows for character limits. So theoretically, you could make it so only ONE line was available, enough for one url. I kind of like signatures. I can totally live without them, but as long as they don't get ridiculous I am by no means against them.

I can't stand them personally. They clutter everything up and get annoying if you're just trying to read a thread or talk to somebody. That's the same reason I removed the thread title captions from under posted images. It's especially bad when you allow pics, because then you have to see some dude's sparkly dancing chocobo fifteen times on every page and it starts looking like geocities in here.

But that said, I didn't build this forum for me, it's for you guys. If I get a lot of people begging for them I can put it to a vote at some point down the road. I can limit what's allowed, so I'm not entirely opposed to them if it's reasonable and text-only.

I doubt it will become much of an issue. I actually think it's probably for the best if their never allowed at all. Not having something is one thing, taking something away from someone on the internet throws them into a hissy fit like their 5 years old :P

That. That's the main reason I haven't done it. I don't want to have to take them away from everybody if one dickhead decides to do something irritating with it.

I give this advice from direct experience.  Just don't do them.

That pretty much settles it as far as I'm concerned.

Probably because you have it hosted on a photobucket. It stretches it to the default width that way. If you upload it to the server instead it'll come out the right size.

Mine has to be hosted on photobucket because otherwise it I have to turn it into a different file type which screws the colors up.


But I am also fine with how it is now.
