Signatures

Post by Loyal White » Tue Nov 21, 2006 11:34 am

Don't know how popular this is going to be...

The large size of people's signatures is winding me up - it breaks the board up and makes some threads quite difficult to read.

The most obvious ones are SOTWA, Cowdril's and Commies. Fair enough SOTWA wants to advertise smackdowns, but is there really any need to have something that big?

Thoughts?

Cheers SOTWA, it's a lot better.

It wasn't meant as a personal attack on yourself - just some peoples signatures are often bigger than their actual posts and it just messes the 'flow' up in my opinion.

We did have a restriction on here once, but I think it got lost in the update.

I'll change those signatures now.

If anybody spots anymore, post in this thread.

:edit:

commie has changed his i'm guessing, but what's wrong with cowdrills?

Big pic of Sam then a quote underneath - it's bigger than Commie's was.

I'm not trying to launch a personal attack, but his signature is bigger than 90% of his posts, it just doesn't feel right to me thats all.

If i'm wrong i'm wrong, it's just my opinion.

I hate massive signatures as well so I agree with you, but I can't see what's wrong.

Can you take a screenshot of what it looks like, as it looks fine on my monitor.

I see a picture of Sam and a quote from Pederson (from these boards - not the real one!) on Cowdrill's signature -

and

"I am hardly whining, as I said a 2-0 win over Liverpool is an excellent result. I do, however, see cause for concern."



What do you see?

If it helps, I see the same both at home on PC and at work on Mac.

Cowdrill's Sam-sig is slightly smaller than his avatar, so it depends whether the problem is the elongation of pages due to big sigs, or the interruption of the conversational flow with pics.

Cowdrill's sig isn't that bad to be honest IMV, but Mansell Way is taking to pxss with his, it's half the size of his post box ffs!

Most sig's on here aren't to bad, compared to other sites, WW for example.

Yeah I've got rid of that music box thing.

Nobody is bothered what the last 10 songs you listened to where, or whatever it is.

Speaking of which, anyone else think that Batman's new sig is waaaaaaaaay too long. Every post now needs me to scroll left/right to read. :whack:

Perhaps you could try increasing your resolution, CH - it only covers two thirds of my screen. Mind you it does seem pointlessly long (a bit like some of those batman movies).
