I'm not suprised, Batty, but it is getting a little OTT. We can find that stuff on google if we like to look at it - but this is a football forum.

I would agree. The odd one is okay, even I have done it. However it kind of ruins the site's profile at this point. We look more like demented fan boys than somewhat literate and sane football fans.

It is getting a tad too much I agree.

Avatar's is one thing, but signatures are another. Big graphics and video's mess up peoples bandwidth and their ability to actually get on the site.

So....before we're left with the option of disabling ALL signatures, could you please all look at removing anything than is more than text or small picture / graphic?

You know who you are..... :|

S'got to be done I'm afraid.

Signatures are going to have be pulled, in order to keep the flow of traffic we are currently enjoying. Keveh will also be installing a mod tomorrow for people to be able to disable the ability to view avatars that may not be particularly work safe.

BB-esque modding strikes again. You have a bit of fun and before you return to normal the Gestapo have Goose-stepped all over the fun and spoiled it for everyone. You only had to wait 5 minutes :roll:

I wondered how long it would be before we got tarred with that brush. Picked something new from your dance-partner T58, eh? :wink:

The simple fact is that there are a number of people who are struggling to get onto this site because of the mis-use of avatars and sigs. I appreciate it that it was only a 'bit of fun', but it's been going on for a couple of weeks now. It's only temporary until things calm down.

If this is all we have to do to get labelled the Gestapo, then I shudder as to what you'll suggest we be should something more serious ever be implemented in the future....

I've referred to mods in that way many times before. Just look at your current avatar!!!!

Great Scott! I've lost my sig too - it was harmless. I shall have to rejoin BB with a "Bench must go" sig. :evil:
How about cooperating, Commie, so we can have some sort of sig back?

It's impossible for me not to!!!

and besides which there are others with multiple sigs and if deletion within profile is a pre-requisite then everybody has to take remedial action for any curative to be effective.

The new mod I am going to install gives you the option of disabling sigs and avatars.

I personally can't wait, half the signatures on here are crap.

Well I think it's a little unfair that the little red horse has gone off to the great glue factory in the sky. :cry:

This is nothing really to do with me, I'm turning a bit Zoe Tate with the boobs around, but then as I've stuck Mark Owen on mine (aviator that is, I've not stuck Mark on my boobs.. oooh idea!)... So I can't complain.

When having a peak at the site at work, I make the window small so that I can't see the aviators and it's a bit geeky but can usually identify who the writer is by the sig, like Monty's or Crazys Shame to see them all go, but it's the chat not the pics that makes me look (I think)

Typical. I enjoy the avatars and sigs, but we get a certain segment all hopped up and we turn into porn fest. I view at work, I cant complain that we are dropping things, but FFS why did we have to come to this? You couldnt have just kept it in a thread like in the past?
