Images in Signatures

We already have avatars. a lot of the images are distracting and big and they get in the way of the flow of the thread, so what do you say we just disallow them. That would make everyone's experience here more pleasant

Umm, that's quite an assumption...

Personally, I would like to get rid of all of the text, written in the traditional english alphabet, that we use. I think it's holding us back as a community. It's retarding our social evolution...

If we had to start out from scratch -- communicating only in pictures -- then we would have a chance to build a new society, as we build a new language. Think about it: linguistics defines us, as it defines our thoughts. It creates the conditions for conceptualization. If we could change language, then we could change humanity itself.

I say we start with this community. Abolish all traditional text at The Shroomery, and communicate in pictures only. If we did this, then we could be loading spaceships, and flying our silver seed to the sun, much quicker than at the rate we're going. We could not only help make the future. We could be the future!

Who's with me on this one? :smile:

I think your idea has some merit.
Now, I am personally not automatically against ALL images in signatures, but I am against all VERY BIG images and all images larger than 20 or 30 kilobytes.
Just yesterday I edited out an image from a signature which was 385(!!!) kb big!
I mean that?s just insane!!
If people would only use some common sense, there would be no need for such discussions.

I like images in sigs... but like Anno, I don't like the excessively huge ones (either physical or visual space).  Zwieback0's 275K avatar's a bit large too - I just haven't had the heart to remove it :smirk:

You can disable signitures and avatars in your Display Options.

I'm with doobie. The only reason why I have disabled signaturesare the images. I like some quotes etc. But some images are killing threads...

big sigs, with the exception of Zwieback0's, are very annoying.

that is all.

Is an elaborate dream?

Is it all you want it to be?

I do too! Pictures, after all, were the very birth of written text, and that is exactly what I was getting at in my above post from a few days ago. We're our own tribe, so let's create our own new language and help social evolution along... :laugh:

This, "no pics in the sig" thing, is just another plot by the graphocentric against the visually-literate. They want to entrap us in their text-hegemony. If we give into them on this issue, then they'll go after script and cursive next. They won't stop, until everything is written in a nice and boringly uniform Times Roman font that they understand and conforms to their way of thought and life. Their army will just keep marching along like giant ants type, and trying to suffocate and extinguish the flowers of truly free-thought. So, I say to this nonsense...

NO!!! Don't conform to these bastards! We make our stand here, and now! We will not surrender our lovely pictures to your torturous text-mills, to be ground into the meaningless "ones and zeros kibble" that feed your army of super-ant-people! No, we will not let this happen!? :laugh:

The morphing cube in my sig is the one thing about me that hasn't changed since I came here. Through all my different avatars, titles, and sig quotes, people can always recognize my posts by the morphing cube. It'd be a shame to have that taken away.

Check the images width and height, if its sizes arent reasonable replace it with an image of the correct size with a quick message about how the other image was a tad to large.

I'd say around the size of of the standard horizontal web banner should do fine, the de-facto standard 468x60, but I suggest something like 460x100.

I suggested something like this some time ago, the solution came to be if someone sig is annoyingly large PM an admin, if they agree that its annoying it gets changed, if not nothing happens.

god i think this is the first waf post to make me laugh. well here is my two cents. i think you should be able to disable pictures in signature and still keep the text that seems as if it would make everyone happy.
