    I think anything to do with saving space and so forth on this site is a good idea.

    they do look a lot better . . . although cramped - perhaps that's just how my browser is displaying them ATM, though.

    You can clean it up even more...

    Since it's obvious the shaded box is a quote, kill the text "quote".

    yeah!!! now we can add like . . . 5 more quotes on top of what we've already got!!!









    J/K!! :toast: - it really does look better, though; you no longer feel like you're swimming through a sea of off-topic qoutes when browsing a thread anymore.

    *AHEM*. Thats not very nice of you ChillyMyst to search up every stupid thing and pick out the most stupid of things. One quote was enough, please remove before I decide to pm a mod to fix your attitude up.

    You certainly remind me of someone, like ashen, always carrying on like a bloody first grade high schooler. Enough is enough, I do NOT give you permission to use my quotes in your signature.

    You liked the idea because you could fit more of my mistakes onto it, rather rude and reputation damaging dont you think?

    The signature quote is for humorous comments, not to put people down ChillyMyst. You are damaging my TPU reputation by making me look like a disturbed and clueless jerk. We dont need people like you pissing people off on this forum.

    gee its been like a week and u just noticed i have those quotes, and maby if you dont want somebody to quote stupid things you say, then dont say stupid things.

    and i think it is hummorous, as do most people, since now you ARE using a 2nd gen g80(g92 is just a new ver of the g80) that i found you had said was just a beefedup g70, now i agree with that part, it is a design on a theme, but its funny that you would put it down then endup buying one and effectivly bandmouthing the r670 in your POINTLESS thred asking what you should get a 38*0 or 8800gt......so yeah i think its hummorous.

    and i didnt want it shrunk for that reasion i think quote siggys where just to large as they where.

    and i think if W1zzard felt the quotes where out of line he would have made me remove them one of the 5-8 times we re-tested sig changes using my siggy.

    if you want to quote something i said, guess what, i cant stop you, if you can find something stupid and damnaging to use against me, go for it, hell make something up for all i care, but i wont remove dirrect quotes form you that to me are quite funny and not "damnaging" to your reputation, because guess what, YOU SAID THEM ALREADY and ANYBODY CAN READ THEM, just like if i said something stupid like saying that the core2duo was a shitty design compared to the k8 or k10, i may not like somebody using the quotes but guess what, im mature enought to accept that I SAID IT and somebody else QUOTED ME.

    also note that i left the quite links in when i could edit eh quote to remove the links so people couldnt put what you said in context.

    as to the bolds, you are doing that with that very post, you call me childish, yet your the one who cant take any "negitive" critisisim, who cant take anybody saying anything bad about your "Case mods" or voting your threds a 1, Nobody can hurt your reputation but you, just as nobody can hurt my reputation but me, and im sure eventuly something i say will be stupid or sound stupid and it will be used by somebody to prod/tease me, but "sall good" because im MATURE enought to take my medicin when i make a mistake or say something stupid :)

    btw i really do like the new look, noticed in a few threds that the siggys nolonger take up 1/2 the page :)

    Your attitude is not welcome here, I'm sure that if you asked ChillyMyst nicely to remove those quotes he'd be happy to comply. Acting like the quotes have absolutely no business being here and making it seem like you have the power to do something about it just makes you sound like a rat.

    Now, I don't want to think of you as a rat, and I don't want any trouble. ChillyMyst, I think it's for the best if you remove a couple of those TKPenalty quotes before the shit really hits the fan. TKPenalty...chill out.

    I'ma watching both of you.

    zek thats the exect problem, his attatude, had he asked NICELY i would have at least removed the 2nd one, but the pm he sent me(that you have seen) and this post really really dont make me want to do anything he asks, since you asked i will removed the 2nd one, the first one, i earned that one by dealing with his attatude inthe post i quoted it from :)
