    Please tone them down. I will be at-will ninja-editing them in the meantime. ;)

    everytime i hobble over to the HC forums and the BoogieBoard, that's all i see... mega signatures. most of them seem to be just a place where people either spam things they're selling or showing off their gear. it's rather nice to see just forum content here instead of all that garbage!

    I have sigs turned off for that very reason. People just put too much junk in them. Leave it in your profile where it's optional, instead of polluting every thread you post in with excess noise.

    Small and presentable. :wub:

    Look at it this way. In the attached pic, the red block is the necessary stuff, the content of your post. The yellow box is extra space that's taken up every time you post by your sig. It's not "bad", per se, and I know tons of other forums allow big ol' sigs, but they drive me friggin' nuts.

    Call it a pet peeve of mine, but where I'm not much of a forum nazi (I don't think so anyhow :fawk:) I am indeed a sig-nazi. :lol:

    Your sig is just fine. Small text, right justified, away from the general "content". :vince:

    I'm a sig-nazi too.
    On ProjectGuitar.com, we allow (2) lines of text. No images. If you're a site-contribuiting vendor, you may include a text link to your site. Large font sizes and other things are trimmed as they are discovered.
    Members get 1 warning. 2nd warning is a 2-week suspension. (I'm not called 'The Moderator From Hell' over there because I'm all puppies and cupcakes.)

    People bitch and moan at first, but soon realize how nice it is to not scroll thru 8 pages of signatures, banner-atures, and spam-atures to get to the one post that says:
    " :) "

    +1 to Darren's post.

    You know, the thread title is cut off and reads "Those of you with large"

    ...and I thought, "Oh! This thread is about me!" DONG!

    Can't you just make a maximum size and have that be that? :scratch:

    Well, if you're going to be the sig nazi, then tell me what an acceptable size limit is. Otherwise, I'm a sig whore and I like 'em big and attention grabbing. So unless you can tell me a 'limit', I can't do shit about it yet. Not to mention with the amount of stuff that gets put at the left under our names, there's tons of wasted space, IMO. So why not have a sig that accounts for that. Look at all the wasted space at the bottom of bostjan's post right above me. That's prime advertising real estate.


    Respectfully yours,
    ~Sig Whore

    You'd be amazed at how quickly rules are adhered to when there's only 2 strikes available instead of three.

    Also, unlike...ahem...."him", we actually send a notice (email and PM) to the member when we suspend them. We don't just do it, then say nothing and let it be a big surprise.

    I may be an asshole, but I'm not gaping.
