    I'm I the only one who's really annoyed with the HUGE signatures here? It feels like every page has at least 30-40% of sig's, and that's a bad thing imo.

    So, am I the only one that wants some stricter rules on this? I can do with images (if they're not big), but some people have like 3 or 4 quotes in their sigs, and that's just ugly. Ugly, distracting and cluttered.

    But, maybe it's just me..

    Is my sig annoying you? I would like to put my specs of all my systems in the system specs section but there's not space.

    I think the amount sigs annoy is probably related to the veiwing resolution.

    It's a means of self expression. No problem with it here.

    I knew it was only me. :(

    I don't have PROBLEMS with it, it's just that sometimes it's disturbing. Oh very well. :)

    I don't think that's possuble unless they shrink the entire area to the left.. I don't see that space though as I have avatars turned off.

    Oh, one of the problems with quoting in sigs on this forums (imo at least) is that it's impossible to make the quotes smaller. They are HUGE. Always. And your new sig is not that bad. I like they idea of "scrolling" the quotes. Looks better than all of the quotes on top of each other.

    But then, all of this is just a so called "IMO". :)

    you can put size denotations within the quote to make the size of the quote smaller.. and yeah.. im working on the animated sig cause i have too many quotes that i'd like to use and they'd make my sig too long and thats not something i'd want so yeah.. interesting about the space under the sigs.. i thought it was just part of the sigs..
