    what's with all these signatures now taking 4 fawkin inches of the screen? are you people afraid that someone ISNT going to ever click on your webshot album and see your rig? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif are you the folks that drive a rig with every gizmo possible bolted on it, and now must bolt all pics to your signature therefore looking like a redneck hit the lottery? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    It's not really the scrolling that's bad, it's that for the people on dial-up (especially 28K) the embedded images make the pages load sloooow as CRAP!

    Hoooooold on... [jab] Seems to me the term 'ghetto signatures' applies better to those who quote themselves. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/jab]

    Before I got cable out here, the fastest speed we could get on dial-up was 24.4K, because we're so far out in the boonies and our lines are so old. It had nothing to do with the computer or modem. Thank God for cable!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm at work, with a cable modem, and a P4 2.4 Ghz system running a gig of ram, and this site loads slow... I pin a good chunk on the signatures, especialy with the large imbeded images and whatnot. I've long since removed my sig pictures, because I don't really want to be a part of the problem. over on my other forums, we have a rule about signatures: once per post. as much as I enjoy seeing the same witty remark over and over and over, or that really cool GIF file loaded at the end of a 4 word reply continualy, I think I'd rather have pages load faster. of course, we also have the option to turn sig files off directly in the post ( off by default) and people who cotinualy spam thier signatures have steep consequences to face ( sig file changed to something horrendous, then locking the offenders into the flames section for a week... then, banning if they continue doing it) of course, we've been called nazi pig a$$holes more than a few times before.

    Yeah, too bad there isn't a per-post option for your sig on these forums. I'd opt out most of the time. A sig LINE is just that, a line..not 4 lines or a God-awful huge pic (don't take it personally Rich). Having a pic in your sig defeats the purpose of avatars.

    heh. Computer speed might not have anything to do with it. I'm stuck out here with diirty phone lines running a 56K modem as there is no real broadband available, and I dial in at 24K. Phone lines my friend, phone lines....suck! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
