Hey Mods,

The signature spamming is getting out of control on the forum.

I don't understand why images in signatures aren't simply forbidden.

This should be in "meta" by the way.

I agree, I vote for disable images in signatures.
* This will also save bandwidth when I surf on my iphone^^.
* Faster page loading time
* Less distraction when reading, which result faster reading.

instead of banning outright, why not just keep tem to a reasonable size like 468 by 60.

Maybe I LIKE to see them (I don't particularly).  But who are you to decide for me what I want to see?

Just go into your profile and set "Don't show users' signatures." to on, that's simple...

I have no problem with text signatures. They can even be useful. Banners should go, though. They just get in the way of the (already meagre) content.

I see a 'Ignore Boards' link... maybe if there was an 'ignore users' link I could just add people that (so rudely) use giant signature images.

i like to see people's signatures, just not the in-your-face ones.

I actually didn't realize it was annoying until now.

Huh? How do you feel about Youtube, Hulu, Television, Yahoo, Google, Magazines, etc. At least sig's don't make you wait to view what you came to see.

^ Problem is, that hides ALL signatures. I'm guessing he only wants to hide images.

Me, I don't mind banners at all. They're not that distracting. You guys could always try using AdBlock, and manually block all the banners that annoy you.

The point is that we shouldn't have to use Ad Block in the forum to block other members spam.

No, the point is that you have a personal preference that you feel everyone else should be forced to adhere to.

Still around.

I'm not exactly sure if the other themes provide it.
a lot of stuff is more or less hidden from view with the other themes.

I don't feel it is spam in any way. I think it's a good thing Bitcoin businesses have a good way of advertising their services and goods for free.

A compromise would be to either:

1. Add an option to disable images in signatures. Default off.
2. Only show a user's signature once per page in a thread. For example if someone makes three posts on one page, only the first post on that page will have his signature in it. I've seen some forums implement this, and it works rather well.

This works great on other forums I belong to.

It would allow the advertising of bitcoin related businesses/sites, but not  inundate threads with them.
