Your thoughts on signatures

Postby Merlin » Fri Apr 25, 2003 9:17 am

Signatures are user-selected bits of text that follow each post by a given poster.

Signatures are currently turned off in the interest of readability, but we'd be interested to hear your opinion; would you prefer they be on, maybe for a trial period or something?

Kindly post your opinion and comment if you like.

John will wield his mighty baton of signature-deciding with imperious compassion and wisdom, I'm sure.

There is a lot of MPSIMS, but I think I can restrain myself, that said sig./lim. [would be cool] and by saying so I am successfully repeating myself.

EDIT: MPSIMS = mundane pointless stuff i must share, sorry for the confusion :) and i should probably write in complete sentences.......

Actually, that's not true. You do want to see us naked. Remember that. Yes to: us naked.

As for signatures, I say: more wheat, less chaff. Unless you have a wheat allergy or are on the Atkins diet in which case I say: No wheat, less chaff.

a) Ooooh you probably shouldn't put that past me. I'm a strange person. (You might have an easier life if you don't put anything past me methinks...)
b) It's not about what I actually want to see, it's about what I theoretically want to be able to vote for. (Sexual equality and stuff.)
c) [void]
d) As one of my friends is wont to say: "Be happy. Be nude." (I feel like a hippie now)
e) Damn. I already voted.

I like having signatures, but do think they should be limited. I'm on another message bored that obviously doesn't limit size and some of those signatures are out of control. One persons post can take up a whole page just because of their signature.


I love the guys and all, but I'm gonna have to agree w/Merlin. I really don't want to see them naked. Sorry John. ;)

I wouldn't mind it, if they were text-only signatures.

I'm getting the feeling that John is a little upset that no one wants to see him naked. I, for one, also do not want to see him naked. And I say that as a fan.

But I want sigs. I need sigs. I totally dig/crave sigs. They make my day. So who do I have to harass to get the happy little sigs back?
