Turboale,

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.

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.

Yep, that's why it says under the signature portion of the profile modification section, "You may use UBB Code in this field, but not HTML. The UBB Code Image tag is not permitted, however."

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.

I think it starts getting overboard when the signature on average takes up more space than the user's actual post.

Bandwidth is also a consideration, especially for those users on dialup.

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.
