I didn't know that the image tag would work in the sig line. I've got a couple of links that take up most of the allotted 300 characters.<P>

Turboale,<P>That sig looks really good. The only problem that I have is that I can't find a free server that will host images besides Photopoint. Soon, Photopoint is going to make people pay for service so that will no longer work. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>-Drew

towerymt,<P>Thanks for that website, it seems to be just what I have been looking for! I think that 30 mb of space should be good enough for storing pictures! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew<BR><P>

The idea of the sigs is nice, however when threads get long the pictures will hog too much bandwith. Maybe it would be a bit more courteous to others if you only enable the sig on the first post or reply of the thread. Just my $.02 worth, but I'm sure that others would agree. <P>Prospero

The UBB Code Image tag is not permitted, however."<P>

I've seen on a few other boards where people will insert 30 or 40k worth of animated images, text, links etc, and then proceed to add their sig to every reply in the thread. <P>I think it starts getting overboard when the signature on average takes up more space than the user's actual post. <P>Bandwidth is also a consideration, especially for those users on dialup.<P>I think a couple lines of text, links, and maybe a very small graphic (like 1 or 2k, 100px wide X 45px height) is best.<BR><P>
