My feeling is that we need to tighten up a little on signature lines, in order to improve the general readability of the Forum. Over-long or over-prominent signatures are distracting, and, with repetition, tedious and boring.

I propose the following:

1. Signatures to be brief - 3 or 4 lines at most. Some may feel that this is especially targeted at Fredie. Some would be right.

2. No images and especially no animated gifs to be allowed. A single exception to be made for Lord Stanley whose Bouncing Titties Fairy I feel curiously sentimental about.

3. No clickable website links to be allowed. The place to list your website, blog or homepage is in your profile, not in your sig line. Kirk's links to his grilles to be grandfathered in, but it's hard to think of another equally deserving case.

Your thoughts?
Fredie
Yeah, I'll cut it down to a stanza or twelve!
hehe.... Everybody who's anybody's read it by now.



How's That?

Your thoughts?

random stream of conscience, mostly. Hard to focus into a tag line, except maybe “Slower traffic keep right”, or “Screed bumps ahead”.
Absomphe
I agree with you completely, Oxy.

I'm curiously sentimental about my sig line, as well.

Luckily, it's pithy, to the point, and completely without animation. evill.gif
Stroller
Sounds good to me.
Ari
I may have to shrink mine a bit.

The only thing I'm adamant about is no images (except for the bouncing fairy of course). On a slow connection they can be quite a pain. This forum isn't too bad, but I've been on some where people had 640x480 2mb gif animations in their sig. Annoying as hell when the browser pauses to load the sig instead of the posts.
Kirk
I thought this was a thread about great ideas for new sig lines,
I need one, any ideas?
celticgent
agreed.

and #1 made chuckle.
Breson
Mine already conforms
Pataphysician
I like many other people concur with the theory you have.
Donnie Darko
I like many other people have no theory.
Wild Bill Turkey
HA! I was actually worried when I saw the beginning of the initial post specifically because I would hate to lose Lord Stanley's bouncing girl. Some days, she's all the action I get.
jimzuma
Fortunately or unfortunately I am in the same boat as Wild Bill at the moment. wink.gif
Donnie Darko
It is a great signature, but some variety would be nice. Like say a redhead or something...

"My feeling is that we need to tighten up a little on signature lines"

you mean we're supposed to read 'em? i thought they were there to be ignored...

I think this means they'd be easier to ignore. So much the better.

LS' boucing girl is of course hard to ignore. So much the better.

"LS' boucing girl is of course hard to ignore."

true, i thought about it later but it was too late to edit.

I like many other people, are a theory.
Lord Stanley
Funny. I've thought about dropping the bouncing fairy a few times for the reasons mentioned in Oxy's post but feared that there would be a backlash. This thread confirms my suspicions. Looks like she's here to stay.

Sorry Donnie, but I'm not nearly crafty enough to make any modifications.

Great. Now how I am supposed to get any work done?
Donnie Darko
Awesome.

Can you make them kiss each other?
rockstar68
yeah, gotta keep the bouncing lady. w00t2.gif thankfully, i think my sig line is fairly short & sweet. Sugar.gif
Fredie
I swear I saw a La Bleue fairy once on one of his sig.s w00t2.gif

Anywhere, and everywhere would be just fine! w00t2.gif
Lord Stanley
I knew that somebody was going to do that
Odds were it would be Hiram. Nice work.
celticgent
why don't you just make that your avatar..no rules broken...
BaMF
every thing sounds good except the non-clickable links there often lead to useful info and besides there damned convenient
hartsmar
Create a topic in the Corn Hole for that.
Lord Stanley
How's that, CG?

She looks a bit squished in the avatar, IMO.
celticgent
you'll have to ask somebody else.

cartoon chicks don't 'do it' for me.
Head_prosthesis
Oh yeah!
That's the way.

Nice and flat, so's the sour beer can sit steady.

Been here 6 or 7 years.
I haven't seen a useful one yet.

Lots of great porn and jokes, though.
Fredie
Now if you could just do away with her... Sash.... w00t2.gif

I've selected "No" to "Do you wish to view members signatures when reading topics?"
I find the topics unreadable with all the signatures.
The Standard Deviant
Is it because you find all of the posts by people with French signatures confusing?
