    To much bandwidth. I believe it was voted upon awhile ago as well. Either Avatars or banner sigs.

    I could be way off however.

    Your signature is too large as it is. Your rides are listed in the side bar, there's no need for them in your sig. You seem like the type who makes a page length signature filled with pictures and huge .gif files. I hate big signatures.

    Yea, no need to clutter up the board. Think of the scrolling you'd have to do! :eek:

    Drake has it right. It's basically a bandwidth waster, and seriously why would I want to watch the same gif over and over on every one of your posts? I generally turn signatures off on boards that allow them because I can't stand staring at the same thing constantly.

    I loathe forums that allow pictures in the sig lines. Makes it cluttered and messy, and you see the same damn pictures no matter what thread you happen to be in. Its just irritating.

    I hate going onto other forums because this is the one I'm used to, and its so simple. I know exactly what I'm looking at. All the other ones are all over the fucking place.

    bandwidth shouldn't matter much anymore. Most forums wouldnt allow for it due to some users having dial up, however as of 2009, its more so because its friggin annoying. Its one thing to see a cool 300x500 picture once but to see the damn picture 4 times on a single page gets old fast.

    Pictures in sigs are lame anyways. make a good avatar and be happy with that, if you have a cool picture to share, open a thread about the picture and post it.

    Not user's bandwidth. B's. It's gotta be paid for both ways.

    Bandwidth isn't an issue. I use about 1/10th of my allotment a month.

    The issue is that it's friggin annoying. I likely don't want to see your (or anyone elses) riced out rust bucket 500 times a day :)

    ive seen on some forums that your first post in a thread shows your signature, and the rest do not.

    we dont run sig pictures here because inevitably they all suck

    want a semi clever picture to identify you on the board? well thats what the avatar is there for

    sig pictures just clutter up the page and make the site look like ass... like one of those city walls plastered with ads

    :thumbsdown:
