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

Tom... don't get rid of signatures. If you need to only allow sigs for people above a certain rep, in order to defeat spambots or to offer a perk to those that have been here for a bit then that's fine. It shouldn't be too high a requirement though, perhaps 500 rep, or less even.

We do have rules stating what can go into a sig and how big it can be, because the old forum was getting pretty cluttered with big sigs. After the rules were put in place it wasn't too bad. And if people don't like sigs they can always turn them off, yes?

At any rate, I do think people need a way to show off their stuff or link to their social networks or blogs or whatever, and a sig is pretty much the best way to do it. To get rid of them entirely is a bit drastic.

[QUOTE=SoldjahBoy] Pro-sig here...

Having no sigs will be really crap.

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

~Sol[/QUOTE]

The rules state (and have for some time) that your sig can be no more than 90px tall.

You need to shrink your sig down a bit, mister! Come on, now... you have to lead by example deadeye2011-07-06 20:20:31

Yeah, I'm actually gonna come out and say I think we should have sigs too! People can link to their websites in them, and I always had documentation links in mine.

I'm sure Tom's on it though, he's upgrading the forum again soon.

Instead of sig rules, it should probably be automated to not work...I think the last forum it was like that. Not everybody reads all the rules, but pretty much everybody reads the red text that pops up when you fail at submitting a form.

If the Views count on the forum rules thread is any indication, you are absolutely right

Me? Follow rules?

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAwut

I'm speshul. Besides, I think my sig is still within reason. If this was MI my sig would be 5 screens tall, and it would be something like an "epicface" technoviking mounting a midget saying "you mad bro?" or something.

But yes... signatures are a MUST.

And so, it has been ruled.

*EDIT*
Slightly off-topic, but I have noticed that when quotes are done, they are ever-so-slightly too wide, and causes a small side-scroll bar to appear.
