Would you mind if I had an image as a signature? A lot of phone line users find that annoying.

But if nobody minds, I may add one on for awhile.

Apparently in the "options" (choices you can make) a dial up user can disable that, so it shouldn't be a problem for anyone anymore....aside from that, I tried this site, on a dial up, it was "quick enough"....lots faster then some other sites....depends upon the number of links Greg has, on the opening page....

I oppose images in signatures not because of my connection speed (which is extremely decent by any standard), but because they interfere with the flow of discussion and general look of the board. I have no problems with text signatures, but when people start to place 500x300 images and they show up under every second post it gets really annoying really fast.

I would have to advice against using images in the signature as well. Also, the size of the signature is limited to 4 lines, as can be read in the posting guidelines.

Okay, so it's 50%.

4 for No
4 for Yes

That doesn't help much...

Maybe it'll help if I show what images I'm thinking of having for my signature.

Either:

Or

YUP, in the UserCP there is edit options, and in there you can turn off Pictures, signatures, and avatars....so's the rest don't matter all that much, as long as dial-up users know, and can turn it off, if they would prefer that....for speeds sake....

despite the.. you can make a user option for sigs on and off... my suggestion is not to have them anyway... unless you are going to size restrict it to something like 20 px high.

Just out of curiosity, why would you want the Windows XP logo in your signature?

You beat me to the question.

Why don't you just upload those images into your profile, instead of putting them in your signature? I think people will get tired very soon seeing the same image repeated over a page many times.

unless your signature picture is going to be Monique's avatar. That's about the only one I personally wouldn't get sick of seeing.
PS if I get sick of seeing something I would probably ruthlessly attack you, call you dirty names and write poems stating just how much I was irritated. And for some reason it seems like I have a talent for pi**ing people off.

A signature is a good place to tell everyone about yourself, in one shot, helped me once, as a thread got 'locked out' prior to the complete responce being exposed, my signature was used to make certain that those involved got to see the answer, something that would have been difficult, othewise......and that thread still stands in error, locked....and I've no signature now, but $25 US (Bout$62,000.00 Canadian, I suspect) I could get it baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Just to show them my support. There are so many idiots out there blaming Microsoft and Windows for everything that goes wrong.

Oh, Microsoft has a monopoly!

Windows crashed and I lost all my report even though I forgot to save!

I got a virus because I was dumb enough to click an attachment entitled: "Hot Hot XXX FREE!"

Microsoft lost my Dog!!
