    Signatures / Avatars

    Hey Guys, It seems everyone is complaining about Signatures, and in all honesty I have to agree since I am on dialup it really shows how slow it is to download some of the pictures, but I didn't care cause most people like them....

    Not that I dont enjoy most of them, but we have deciede to move to an "Avatar" system.

    I made them 142x60 @ 15kb's or less.

    You can upload them to the site and not worry about hosting them. This will be better for some people, and plus it will be "controlled"

    If you have a signature w/ a image in it can you please remove it and adjust it to fit the new scheme. I dont want to have to "enforce" no pix in signatures, because then we lose the ability to put links in our sig lines which most people still like.

    Here is the template I am using.

    Why just after I've come up with my graphical sigs, which I think are near-perfect? Would they be OK? All of my sigs are < 10KB, the average size is only 9...

    I do agree that avatars make the site look so much cleaner and loads much faster. The sigs were getting way too large altough some were very very nice (Mann), bust some were just big and useless (SR20DET)

    Hopefully everyone will get creative w/ their AV's.
    I did a quick test one.

    page space? Not exactly something to worry about. That's what a scroll wheel is for..

    Wouldn't it just be better to impose a size limit to sigs instead. Some people's banners are really nice, makes the forum way cooler then most. I mean, a 5k to 10k banner isn't going to hurt anyone, even our poor dial-up friends...

    I proposed a size limit on sigs a long time ago but no one listened, so avatars are the only way i can control the limit
