    How do you guys feel about signature pics?

    With the new version of vBulletin software we are now running, there is the ability to have pictures in your "signature". (for those that don't know, a signature in the world of forums is the text/links/stuff under your name after your post - mine is some links to stuff here). In reality, we've always had this ability to have pics in the sig, there just wasn't a way to control the size of the images the members put in there. With no control, you have folks putting in huge pics that make reading a thread a major PITA. It's possible to shut off the sigs in your UserCP, but I like seeing what folks put in there. Now, we can limit the height/width so the forum doesn't get fouled up by huge sig pics.

    So, I'll put it to you guys...

    Do we allow signature pics or not. Vote and post up why if you feel so inclined...

    Personally - I think sigs are annoying. I don't mind the smallish ones, but you get those attention whores who clog up your page load with their massive, rediculous sigs - it just wastes everyone's time and clutters up the page in my opinion.

    But that's just me.

    It is a little over doing it...I guess an avatar serves the purpose as well as a sig pic. Myself, I don't have a problem with pages loading because I got high speed net but it is a little overboard.

    Not a fan of sig pictures. You end up with a long thread of banter and you are looking at the same photos over and over and over.

    Just keeps it clean to not have them.

    I second that the avatar is enough photo.
