I think the whole signature thingy is being given too much importance .. huge graphics .. huge texts .. it's just a signature.

Oh, no no - what I mean is that people give too much importance to their own signature on the forums .. I am actually against big graphics and big texts ..

Let's talk screen size - let's say we have a user with 2000 posts, and he has like 5cm of a signature .. 5 * 2000 = a lot of screen size (scrolling) which went to waste ... signatures are fun and all, but .. ya know .. don't over do it people :).

Oh ok, I understand you now. :lol:

But, as to what I was speaking of, even though I have high-speed, I hate going to forums like *cough* Zeropaid *cough* and loading a bunch of freakin' useless graphics just to read a few posts.

Voluntary Action Regarding Signatures...

Postby SlyckChuck » Wed Sep 15, 2004 1:03 am

Halo,

You have made such great strides recently. Please do not throw it away but thinking some have a sense of humor or by testing boundaries. Tom and others value your work here so by all means if he asks you something please follow thru. I stood up for you before and hope you will see the reason why Tom and Ray asked for compliance here. It really screws up the way people read threads that only have 800 x 600 pixels or less.

Do us all that favor and thx in advance!! :idea:

As I said, I was gonna resize it.
But Tom, or whoever: When you sent me the message, was I online?
Answer: No. It was lightening outside, so I unplugged my comp and my TV, so how could I respond to your message?

It doesn't really matter, mate. No pics in the sig. No meant no, last time I checked. Maybe you could incorporate it into your avi?
[code:1]char str[20];
scanf("%19s", &str);
if (!strcmpi(str, "Hello, world!"))
printf("Hello, programmer.\n");[/code:1]

Sig Text Length

Postby in_hiding » Sat Oct 16, 2004 5:01 pm

Someone (nessmaster?) now has a sig of very long unbroken text. This throws off the page layout in my browser, making me have to do a lot of horizontal scrolling back & forth to read any thread where he has posted. :cry:

so I request limit on unbroken text length in sigs.

I guess that's a good idea. ln_solitude got mad at me a while back for having a long URL...

Anyway, Nessmaster, mind grouping the binary to ever four digits? That's how it's properly done, anyway =).

Voluntary Action Regarding Signatures...

Postby SlyckChuck » Sat Oct 16, 2004 5:43 pm

iN I was not really mad. As this thread says this is voluntary. Many are stuck in viewing 800x600. I know it bites but it is polite to others so their pages are not skewed. That is the reason why Tom has asked for this IMO.

I know. I didn't mean mad as in "angry," I meant it as in enough to voice a complaint (whether one is angry or not.) Sort of hard to voice slang in typing, eh?

Anyway no problem.

PS: Are you at 800x600?

My system can be as condensed as 1280x1024. I am most comfy with 1024x768. 8)

I am just being supportive and understanding that some people's systems are not as advanced as others. Some have higher priorities and was not meant as a slam.

Voluntary, mandatory....whats the difference :?: :wink:
I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking, 'Did he use six superfluous adjectives or only five?' To tell the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement - but as I deal in English, the most powerful language in the world with subtle nuances that may blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel loquacious?' Well do you punk?

Some new people eithe have not seen this thread or chose to ignore it. Some are reminded politely. Tom gives a very good explanation why no pictures are allowed in signatures. Tom and Ray devote a lot of time to this site so if they ask to observe a rule, be cool about it. 8)

Could we get the 400 character limit removed on the sigs?

I want to put this in,

No matter what you see you 're still so blind to me.

I know I could do it with a picture, but I want it in text.
