While kinda cool, I kinda gotta agree w/ Krayt...

it does make the page a little more difficult to load...

I'm just a bit nervous about starting the practice of putting images into signatures. I've been to some boards where everyone has to have a banner or image of some sort in their signature. It makes the board horribly difficult to read, and slow loading for people with dialup.

We already get to personalize things a bit with an avatar. And it's one of those things that isn't a huge thing if one person does it. But if we have three or four people doing it and then they post multiple times on a page it just turns into a mess.

On one page with 20 or so posts and with everyone having a banner, it took over a minute to load on Hi-speed DSL... It took a good six seconds extra to load this page just now.

Please keep your signatures text-only. This keeps the pages looking cleaner and loading faster. Thanks!

Thanks for posting that, Loc. Some of us didn't have DSL until recently, and so weren't even able to load the page! Wink
