Please let's limit the use of signatures to text and disable the use of images (see member X-Files, for a very crass example).

 

Thank you.

Leo

 

But I LIKE his signature! One man's crass is another man's truth. :)

 

 

Besides, what's so offensive about cavalry sabers? If the link is the issue, may I respectfully suggest you not click it?

I think Leo's complaining about the size.

 

And here I was thinking of adding a picture for my sig.... :D

 

ISTR there is a feature wherein one can disable seeing signatures. Check out your profile settings, Leo. ISTR the feature is there. A simple unticking (or ticking) of a box would mean you won't be seeing any signatures.

Yes, thanks Thomas. What a nice feature. Wish other boards had it.

 

I have absolutely nothing against the cavalry sabres. What I object to is the placing of large, (and colorful, or even blinking or moving), images in this area. A frequent poster or posters will make the thread pages look like the Strip in Las Vegas. Much too distracting.

 

Cheers

Leo

Hehehe my avatar is an animated GIF. :D

 

Although I agree somewhat WRT sigs. I used to post at another board, and it became, shall we say, too feature-filled. Not only were there avatars and graphical sigs, there were also ribbons, awards, and other stuff posted in one's profile, which was all a pain to see. And the ranks there were, shall we say, Walt worthy (general, lt., major, etc - military ranks, with corresponding insignia). Fortunately, there was a feature to turn it all off, but I still left.

Did it ever occur to you, to PM me and ask me nicely to find smaller ones?

 

 

Apparently not.

 

I think your Sabres need to dance, with audio....

 

 

That or a GIF89 of a whole cav troop rumbling across the bottom of your posts...

That would seem to be the most non-confrontational way to do it (instead of starting a thread to bitch about another member). But, I do have to say that it is the very first time I have ever seen somebody publicly bitch about somebody else’s choice of avatars based on the size, and not the content. We’ve had one or two complain that an avatar is offensive. But we’ve never had anybody complain that an avatar is too large (until now). WTF is “too large?” Is it not in the eye of the beholder? If one thought that it was too large, would it not also make sense to complain to Moderator and, if Moderator felt the avatar was out of place, then HE could direct a change, either by PM or some other means?

 

Leo – I have to say that maybe you need to mind your own business and that, if complaints need to be made, make them to Moderator like everybody else does.

Like this.

 

 

I could see where someone would find that to be an offensive response.

Jus' sayin'...

It is the Whine Cellar after all. :lol:

 

Let's cool off a weeee bit. ;)

 

As for avatars, the size is already limited by the forum software. ISTR that off-site avatars are automatically reduced in the proper size by the software. While uploaded avatars need to follow the size restrictions (I forgot the exact pixel size).

 

For sigs, though, it's different.

 

At least there's no "stirring, patriotic music" in MIDI format like Sparky's sites. :lol:

That sounds like the infamous "officer's club" for the Vietnam game site that was doing a funeral wake for MSG Connors
