Or, How about you do signitures like they do at GBAtemp.net - Make each one be a max of foo x bar pixels. If it's over that it has a scrollbar added.

 

Signatures are just replicated noise, they don't add anything. I suggest that 255 is too many.

Translation:

Well by that deffinition we should just ban use of spaces because they're just repettive noise. We should also ban use of punctuation and any characters besides A-Z and 0-9. While were at it why not just ban use of the words and, the, I, me, and or, as they're just repettive noise.

 

See how much space that saves? People with netbooks should just *love* that!

Don't be silly. Punctuation is a vital part of ensuring the legibility of text.

 

It's more about the post/not-post ratio than anything else. If you have a line or two of post and 11 lines of signature (which doesn't add anything to the discussion topic) then the signal to noise ratio is pretty low.

 

I thought you were "not an admin anymore" and "retired"

>:(

Still not quite retired yet. Still a few things to sort out. However, you'll be rid of me soon, don't worry [:o)]]'>

How rude!

 

anyway, yes looking back 99% of your post's are barley a full sentence and a eighth page of signature, its silly, and as already stated (and should have been the end of it) use the wiki, there you can document all your stuff to your heats content, which in the end would provide more usable info to the community.

No one's mentioned that you can actually turn of signatures (along with images, flash, smilies and avatars) in the User Control Panel (Board preferences --> Edit display options). I realize it wouldn't be necessary if everyone were polite and considerate etc, but reality is often otherwise... :(

And the quoted/original ratio is also a common indicator of readability and politeness.

Yeah, It's not like the Mods will change anything unless they want to. They don't have to change anything unless they want to, therefore they won't.

Personally, I think the rules should be like a democracy, but the Mods wouldn't like that because they wouldn't be able to use their power of their dictatorship.

:disapprove:

macgeek417: Don't be stupid. This is neither a dictatorship nor a democracy. Its a freaking internet forum for crying out loud! If it affects you that much, then all I can really say is that its probably time that you maybe...took a day away from the Internet or something. Anyway, it doesn't seem that this thread really has any further value, so I may as well lock it.
