Well, I've filled the 255 character limit thing on my sig, but I only have a quote, a little single framed gif, and a link, which all in all can't be too large of a sig. How about a memory size limit instead of a character limit?

Let's get back on track for a moment, guys.

I'll leave this up for now and hopefully more folks (especially those who have the giant .gif images) will share their thoughts. Then the staff will go over it and we'll go from there.

institute "peer review"

if someone's sig is excessive, let the users point it out. a mod can then pm the user in question. and if the user refuses to change it, the mods have the power to remove the offending images on a case by case basis.

its a bit more hands on, but it puts the real power in the hands of the users, and it also gives the users the responsibility to not make it excessive, without hardcoded features.

I kind of like this idea. Another forum I used to go to had a specific thread where people could check if their sig was okay. Someone would post and ask if it followed the rules, and a staff member would respond back. A link to said thread is below:

Of course, their sig rules are a lot stricter, and they have a group specifically for the task. But maybe we could use something similar here.

I'd have to say, all these gifs are loosing their charm fast. It used to be, when an animated sig popped up, it was unique. It had a lasting effect. Now, every other person has one, and none of it's funny at all. I'm also sick and tired of my computer locking up whenever I open a page full of these huge images.

Otherwise, I say there needs to be some sort of a size limit, and I also second the idea of a peer review. I'm sure it has a lot to do with Pope's sig/avatar thread, because the amount of gif-sigs has skyrocketed ever since he started it. So maybe some intervention needs to spring up there.

That's too bad, I had to take out my signature of Ryan screaming at Komodo. I think we can all agree that Pope made the best gifs.

I agree. Any man who make a Late Night Talk Show host even funnier is a good man in my book.

Even though Pope is a generous man for giving us the gift of custom gifs, I agree with Catfish. He has made it almost sort of a standard for signatures. Like, "If you don't have one, you're not as cool." Now I'm fully aware that's not actually the case, but it has gotten a bit insane lately. Maybe we could just have his thread locked temporarily (And let him know about it and why so he doesn't make a thread about it), and then until the staff come to a consensus, determine whether or not to reopen it and have his requests available to the public.

That's my 2 cents.

Heh.

Better to have tried and failed than not at all.

Granted, yes.

He claims that he complains because the mods/staff/whoever doesn't give him any explanation as to why his posts are edited, or his threads get locked. I think that maybe he wouldn't throw such a fit if you guys explain it to him, if my suggestion were take effect.

He always targets you for everything though, so I can see why you'd be skeptical.
