Get rid of Marqueeeees
« on: June 12, 2010, 12:34:20 AM »
I really don't want to be the one to bring this up but I can't hold it in anymore.

Can we please get rid of allowing marquees (and ideally, .gifs) in signatures? For gods sake it feels like I'm visiting one of those old geocities pages with rotating skulls and crap whenever I scroll through a popular thread!
And... in before people add rotating skulls and UNDER CONSTRUCTION and so on to their sigs...

You can't get rid of signatures, but a limit would be ok.
I don't remember who (it said ''fear the army of'' something), but he abuses that feature. It's annoying to see his signature.

You can set your options to not see both Avatars & Signatures.

But I want the normal signatures...

I think you guys might be taking this a little too seriously?

DjKlzonez: That would be Taiyo. His "FEAR MY ARMY OF TAOKAKAS"

Sometimes animations and the marquee are annoying. But if they took that out, how would we see Vixy's awesome army of classic sprites?

Well, i don't want to disable signatures, sometimes i visit the threads that are linked in them, some of them are funny too.

If having something like 25 or more animated gifs of the same character isn't abuse, how do you call it?

Well, counting them up, it's actually only eleven. And it's not like they're hurting anyone.

They're all the same image, therefore it only needs to load it once, not to mention for most browsers it'll save it to the cache so it doesn't have to load every time. The image itself is also only 4 frames and about 9KB. It's not going to be eating much bandwith. Hell, mine is even a larger filesize than Taiyo's.

And if Vixy's good with it, considering she uses quite a few animated gifs in a marquee in her sig, I think there's no use complaining.

Hmm... It's a reasonable request... Though it does come with attachment... >w<

And I'll haunt those that disagrees.

Apparently not. Look at Vixy's.


That being said, I wouldn't recommend it yourself.

Stone age computers maybe. My phone has absolutely no problem what so ever with any sigs or avatars on this forum.
