With the new, personal server, would it now be possible to have pics in our sig? Of course there would be a limit on file size and pixels (400x300 ?)


then again, if my works server never changes I won't get to see the damn thing that much anyway :rolleyes:

ryan and I will think about this. we didn't just turn the option off to limit bandwidth, but I think we both feel that having images in the sigs gets way out of hand and clutters up the forums.

Yeah cause you always get the people who put the pics and descriptions acting like their car is the sh!t. :rolleyes: Links to cardomains and n-body registries are good enough IMO.

I like being able to scroll down and not have to look thru all those. Plus, I'm on dial-up right now... having pics in the sig would KILL me.

off topic but amraam i saw that video in your sig, als is on the mod list for the wrx =P.

and sigs in pictures are a double edged sword, look at jbody, everyone has their car + a hot chick in the signature - its quite lame, imo... if we add sigs they need to be heavily moderated ie; either yourself, your car, or a group of cars containing your car in the signature....

and premium membership would be nice too... im sure there is an option to disable signatures as well for 56kers =/

1. For the dinosaurs still on dial up...sorry, but don't kill the majorities fun because of a few stragglers. Besides, go to UserCP, Options, AND TURN THEM OFF.

2. Supra, RX7, Madden video game, Dolphin board I visit..all allow small sigs. They are bigger in population than here and there are no problems at all. Too big..BOOM..see ya.

I'll moderate sigs for crying out loud. Over X size or containing questionable material..SEE YA! Don't like it... :hammer:

I agree pictures in sigs would be nice, and only allow it for premium members....

If we had more perks like this I would fork out some cash for premium membership and probably some others too.

IMO i think it looks just fine without the picutures in signatures. keeps everything looking nice and clean. like someone said a link to their cardomain seems just fine. avatars are good enough. my .02 cents.

can we please make something clear....

CARDOMAIN IS GARBAGE!!

...it is nothing but a gay ass advertising site for their rip off of a store that is infested with r1cers faking their cars and talking in ebonics/AOL jibberish. Last week I just recalled I had a page their for my 2000 GASC..I went back and looked at it and though, wow, what a :farz: place

Rich

What does cardomains garbage have to do with our cardomain links. You click on the link, and there is our pics and info. Simple as that. Were not asking to go look at everyone else's rlcer page.

Make it a premium memebr thing. It would be another nice perk of being a premium member.

premium member would still keep the amount of pics down so i dont think i would have a prob about that
the search wait is another story....
56k needs to get with it!

The more i think about it i really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really would like us premium members to be able to have sig pics. I think it would be a great addition or "perk" of being a premium member.

Jeremy

Adding it for Premium Members is a good idea. I think there's one hack we need to add to get that setup, We'll dig into it.

Here is an example of FinHeaven, the Dolphins largest message board online (unofficial, but still many writers, players, and who knows else lurk there and always has inside info/breaking news).

Unified Theory's sig is nice, there is actually a resident graphic design major who makes a lot of the sigs and they are great, some even have simple flash like this one. In that sig the helmet changes from the 72 design..to the 80s...to the recent. As advice, I would say no more than 300 high and 600 wide. That sig is average for the site and is about 600x200 I think, and around 63KB. Also, it would be nice if people could have some decent pics if we do go to sigs. Not some broke ass fuzzy stuff or trashy ghetto crap. It would help to keep the site respectable.

only way it'll happen is if we find an option for everyone to "turn them off"

^No you dont, chill out a little bit, you already have a thread posted. Its in your profile, and theirs no way someone can change your pic unless they have your id/password.

For some reason, my broadband won't let me connect to gagt.com. Any other site in the world works fine, but it hates this place for some reason. So for me to get on, I have to use dial-up. I agree, we shouldn't be playing for just a few, but I still think that sigs, unless kept small, can get annoying.

If you go to User CP > edit options > scroll down to Thread Display Options > then uncheck Show Signatures

It won't show a signature at all, but I'm not aware of any hack for vbulletin 3.0.6 or earlier that will cut out images only from signatures. Of course I haven't browsed their hacks in a few months.

I think adding pics in sigs for premium members is a SPECTACULAR idea... might even motivate some to pitch in that 15. I also agree that there needs to be clear size limits, but I dont think they need to be moderated that closely. The only way you can have a sig pic is if its your car? Come on, thats a bit much. No T&A of course, but I dont see a problem if someone is promoting another interest of theirs.

Here's my sig pic over at GAOC:

i do think premium members only with a banner is a good idea, however I just think it will clutter the threads up. Just like Brad's, not saying his is bad, but imagine 20 of those things on one page and it just doesnt look good IMO.

I agree, it may not look 'bad', but it's annoying. We know your screenname and we know you drive a grand am. All that info is available along the left side of the posts, add a pic of your car to your avatar and there ya have it. Why do we need flashing pics under ever post? :homo:

I guess I personally dont even notice the pics unless they are well done or a really good shot or something. Maybe if I had dial-up this would be more of an issue, but really Im only bothered by sig pics if they are ridiculously huge.

example:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v479/shadesofnight/huge.jpg I shrank down the screen shot, but you get the idea... excessive.

Maybe I just dont mind because I really enjoy making graphics.

Clutters the hell out of the page... I'd be scrolling forever just to see the bottom the the page.

there's a hack we can put in that only shows your sig the first time you post in a thread. You can also turn off signatures right now in your UserCP -> Options

UNCTYPE-S
05-31-2005, 07:45 PM
that solves everything then. People who dont wish to see sig's can just turn that feature off. Both teams are happy then.

I definitely like the "show the sig once per thread" option... that sounds like a pretty good setup.

DrFabulous
06-01-2005, 10:46 AM
^^^ Ya, either that, or maybe instead of having a sig pic you could just make it so your avatar could be bigger? Not a huge pic, obviously, but that way all the discussion stuff will stay on the right, and the pics on the left.
