I also like them as long as they're not too long - it's a quick way to find out about what people are working on.

It's a pretty standard thing for forums to have. As long as we have a limit, are they really a problem?

I don't like them when they just look like an AD (like Arimas) but it's fine because I can easily block them.

I really like the design of it Arima!

Ultimately I don't have a problem with them at all, and I want people to have exposure for their blogs and games, I'm just not sure if a signature image is the best way to do it for various reasons.

@Arima: It's primarily the way it's mostly text, with web address despite being clickable.

Didn't mean it as an insult or anything :)

Having the ability to turn sigs off - like the previous forum - would be my preferred option. It has the added bonus of speeding up page load times as well :)
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

What are peoples thoughts on a link directory for Construct/Scirra related websites? It would be a lot more prominent, and relevant. This would be instead of a forum signature. I think this way you guys get what you want with exposure, and we keep the forum looking really clean and light.

Buddy40 - nah, I didn't take it as an insult, I'm just disappointed it comes off that way to anyone. I'm actually good with criticism, it's good to know what people actually think, so to both you and Tom, thanks for the feedback.

Edit: argh ninja'd by Tom - hopefully a "there's been a new post made, do you want to review your post" feature can be implemented?

I dunno, a link list sounds like it could be hard to tell which user has which link, and could turn into a giant mess where its difficult to find anything. If signatures were not allowed, it seems like it would be more efficient and make more sense to simply allow such a thing on a person's profile page.

I prefer signatures because it's nice to be able to know at a glance what a person's working on, or even that they're working on something at all without having to specifically look for information for if they are working on something.Arima2011-07-06 18:14:41

Pro-sig here...

Having no sigs will be really crap.

90-120 pixel limit should be more than fine...

Yeah, I like seeing and having sigs, not just for useful reasons...
Is the issue just loadtimes and readability? Or the image of the site, and wanting it to be professional?   For the first two, I think a prominent don't show signatures option somewhere would work, along with a 90pix vertical limit...also, with your web knowhow, couldn't you just make it the last thing that loads? And also have that 100k size limit or whatever the last site had.   Even on my phone I never really had speed issues with scirra forum
