I did change it, but someone changed it to 5000 (weirdo)

So I'm changing it back to 350.

I'd have to agree about the name changing. Some people are changing their names every second day. How are we supposed to know who's posting unless we go into the thread? It's so dumb.

Also, the large siggys are an eyesore. People with large siggys: just shrink them down! That's what the img width=_ height=_> and font size=_ html codes are for.

my signature + my avatar is smaller (in size) than your avatar alone.

I'm not picking on you but I'm just saying that at least I care about the environment and dial-up users.

I never said they were. You're complaining about how long it takes to load a page

and i gave your avatar as an example. So don't just blame the sigs! :crying:

Bethany Your signature is ridiculously long. Can't you see this? A picture with your signature on it? Hardcore? An online journal no-one here should read?
xonodoubt You too. What are all the links for? The picture? Villanova?? Sorry, but we dont need to see this unknown stuff every time you post. Do you see what I mean? :roll:
Cass, your picture is a bit too large. Why don't you shrink it by half? I like DC too, but I dont need the big pic of Chris' "captivating" eyes.

Al, Thanks bro. :nod: But, if a moderator, (you appointed) is going to pull stunts like that, maybe they shouldn't be a moderator! (

That's funny cause i don't make my sig for anyone else. And the links take up 4 lines . I must have missed the part where you decide what people are allowed to have in their sig and what they're not :roll: And Villanova would be my fav OLP show so yea :uh:

Wait a second. You don't make your signature, for anyone else? Thats not the point of a signature!!!
The signature is the part of your message thats intented to show everyone a small personal peice of yourself. But, you do it just for yourself? That makes no sence man! The unusual links can take up 1 line. And few people know the significance of the links. There is no need to display this stuff, no one will check them out just out of the blue!

And FYI, I never had the power to control what people put in their sigs. Never. Don't exagerate. And, I personally have no problem with Villanova. I did not know what it was, but I think thats a great thing to put in your sig. If made 1 font size smaller. 8-)

Hmm . . . teelow:

1) I personally don't think this thread is any more important than one where someone says that they're gonna try out new music. Might as well call it the "stuff that pisses off teelow thread." I'm sure you could have talked to Al on AIM or something about any of these "problems." When I need to talk to him about something on the CM, that's where I do it, instead of making a new thread.

2) while maybe your signature isn't as long as, say, xonodoubt69's, yours is just dialogue, and I don't care for it that much. Hers actually has content.

Chill!

It might be "unknown stuff" to you, but I know what just about everything in both of their sigs means and stands for. Just because you personally don't use those links doesn't mean that nobody does. I use them quite often, actually. And their sigs are perfect for them, and express their personalities quite well. If you took the time to get to know either of them, you'd realize that. This is an online COMMUNITY, the point of this place is to converse and get to know people, and possibly make some friends. I know I have. Why don't you try? Then maybe people's sigs won't be "unknown" to you.

teelow wrote:Al, Thanks bro. :nod: But, if a moderator, (you appointed) is going to pull stunts like that, maybe they shouldn't be a moderator! ( WINK WINK )

Way to be immature. I took full credit for changing the sig length on the first page, and explained exactly why I did it. If you're gonna talk about me, talk TO me, not to Al ABOUT me. That's just childish. Also, Al didn't make me a mod, Rob did. And, you actually can't change the sig length as a mod, you have to be an admin to do it. Which is why I first asked if I could (actually, before that, I asked in the mods forum why it had been shortened, and nobody answered me, which if Al would've said something, could've saved this whole ordeal), then asked if I could login as an admin to change it. I did nothing, I repeat NOTHING, without asking first.

This such a stupid argument. I don't even know why I'm continuing it. Probably because first you insulted two of my best friends, then you decided to go for me, as well.

And, while I'm here. The pictures in the sigs? Yeah, those will only slow dialup people down a total of ONE time. That's right, so when you say they're slowing you down repeatedly? Yeah, that's not right. See, the first time you see a graphic on the internet, your computer will load it, then it'll save to your harddrive, and after that, it'll appear much quicker and no more downloading will be necessary. Magic! Actually, that's just how computers work. Stop complaining.

Can you tell I'm sick and tired of the pointless arguing on the board? Why do you all feel the need to come up with new things to complain about? Just have FUN. That's the point of this place.

Ok maybe I should have made myself more clear. I won't mind changing it if more than one person deosn't like the size. But like she said, my Chris's "captivating" eyes are just as important to me as your little convo there.

Hey Demos When I first had a problem with the sig length, I e-mailed al.
This whole thread idea of mine got started when I found out yesterday how the length was shot upwards. Then I just kept adding my thoughts together.

Telling Al alone would not help. Pointing out what..."pisses" me off wasnt the purpose. By making a thread everyone would read, I could get them to think out of their shell. By the way, I liked the tone of your post. Got the point across. :nod:

nikki: I bet you have high speed? I don't.
Heres a thought, if their links mean so much to you, I would assume they would be bookmarked. Hey, the function is there for a reason. Perhaps I should get to know these people, I'm not saying I dislike anyone here, its jsut somethings can change. If I see someone with a big ass signature its like they are screaming for attention with every post. especially when its substantially larger than your actual post!! "Look at my online journal and these 3 other peopls! tee hee!! then stare at my picture again and again! Now read my random words over and over till you throw up!!" I know this is an online community, its great! But that has nothing to do with long ass signatures. Posts are important. Not sigs. FYI I have made a few friends here, Susan and Landon come to mind at first.

To be honest, I missed when it when you explained what happened with the sig length. But so did al, when he called you a weirdo! And I am sorry for making it seem like I was talking around you. That truly was not my intention. But still, 5000? The average post is definetly significantly smaller.
Now, Rob made you a moderator? Isn't al the boss? shouldn't he be the one to decide this and make it happen? Us non mods have few clues to help us understand the rules. Like this "mod forum" you speak of. Shh! its a secret! :lol: So, without consideration of what any other mods or Al said, you went and changed it. Yeah, no one responded, but c'mon that is no excuse. Ask them personally or even ask us normies because we know stuff about the board too! :mrgreen:

I'm not sorry I insulted 2 of your friends. I'm sure it was read mroe sarcastically than I meant. The fact is, the sigs were too long, and you (and maybe they) took it as an insult. I'm not 'going for you' Im debating this stuff. Not trying to pick fights.

The pictures are re-downloaded. The temp folders are deleted on my computer automatically. And I dont want these things filling up space. As little as it may be... Magic eh? "How childish".

nikki, debate with me, dont argue. My OP consisted of old things that I became aware of since I have been here. Not NEW things.

Nikki, I hate to sound like an ass here but, I also think your sig is too long. heh, I feel like a jackass saying it!! Personally its just the pictures that are a distraction to me. although A smile grew across my face when I read the joke about Max being a lawyer! :lol: ahhhh good stuff!

FYI I have made a few friends here, Susan and Landon come to mind at first.

Yes, I do have high speed, but I didn't always, and I access the CM from my boyfriend's computer occasionally. The sigs certainly aren't what kill the speed when I do so, it's just the forum itself. These are some hefty pages.

And, yes, I do have their links bookmarked, but that doesn't change the fact that for many people on here, I used the links to their journals, websites, etc. that are in their sigs to first access their pages. I'm sure plenty of people do when they find someone on here they think seems cool, and wanna learn more about.

That's great that you made a few friends on here. But don't criticise the people on here's sigs whom you aren't friends with.

Wow, that was a long post, dunno how you missed it. :lol: But, that's ok, I'm glad that was cleared up. And, I'm sure Al called me a weirdo after reading that I had done it, anyway. :lol: I only made it 5000 not so people could fill that up (dear god! :lol:), but so there was no problem of "your sig is too long" (like it used to be... which is why I figured it had been something really high, and it had just accidentally been bumped down a zero). That error pisses me off like nobody's business. And I'm getting it again, now. :mad:

Rob pays for the board now, along with a few others (have for a while now), and so is one of the "bosses" on here. I'm friends with Rob, and was talking to him on AIM, so I asked him about the sig thing. He had no idea how/why it had been bumped down, so told me I could put it back up. Wasn't a big deal. Or so we thought.

Perhaps it was read more sarcastically than you meant it. But it came off quite nasty. Try to be more careful with your wording.

teelow wrote:The pictures are re-downloaded. The temp folders are deleted on my computer automatically. And I dont want these things filling up space. As little as it may be... Magic eh? "How childish".

Well, if you have your temp files deleted, that's an option you chose. Regardless, they'll still be there for a full visit to the CM. Nobody's got pictures so extremely large in their sigs that it really takes all that long to download them. Go take a look at... say... the Three Doors Down board (not a fan, but been checking it for OLP goodies every once in a while), then tell me our sigs are bad. Seriously. It's on their official site. Go look. You'll come back and love everyone here's sig. :lol:

teelow wrote:nikki, debate with me, dont argue. My OP consisted of old things that I became aware of since I have been here. Not NEW things.

Sorry, but I don't enjoy debates. I personally don't see any difference between a "heated" debate and an argument. So, I don't change my wording accordingly. I just speak my mind. That's just how I am.

teelow wrote:Nikki, I hate to sound like an ass here but, I also think your sig is too long. heh, I feel like a jackass saying it!!

Yeah, I figured my sig was included in the "too long" ones. Like I said, as of right now, I can't edit it because of the fact that it's "too long". Though, it's only because my graphic urls are long, and I have a lot of hyperlinks. Which I don't think is fair... and is a big reason why I think the sig limit should be longer.

Oh, and that great quote's a Jeremy quote, by the way. Methinks I should add that to my sig, so people know that. Oh wait. Heh. I honestly just forgot that I can't. I also need to change the name of the club back to "Pookie Brigade" in my sig.
