Some Signature and Profile Guidelines - Please Read

Post by DPDISXR4Ti »

I don't want to come down as "Mr. No-Fun", but it's been suggested by several folks over the past weeks/months/years that we should have some rules in place on Signatures and Profile. I'll take a stab at a few - feel free to voice your feedback and suggest additions/deletions, but keep in mind, not everything is decided by popular vote. :lol:

1) Signatures should be limited to 6 lines and no large images or commercial advertising (unless you're a paid-up sponsor)
2) Please update your profile with at least basic location information
3) A real name is highly recommended in your signature. It's really difficult to have a meaningful conversation with someone known only as "Loverboy", "YoMamma", "Big10inch", etc.

Well, the popular preference is none, and I agree with it. I just didn't want to be overly draconian coming out of the blocks, telling anyone who had an image to ditch it "or else".

I just haven't gotten around to it, it's almost like work.

Hell, it took me 2 yrs after I moved out of the "Peoples Republic of Boulder", before I updated my profile...

It all sounds pretty good. I like the name and location piece. This boards actually pretty good with avatars, sigs and what not.

The local import board I assist with moderation with gets REALLY out of control sometimes.

No complaints here on how the forum looks. I think we all do a grand job and show alot of respect towards our passion.

None the less I removed and simplified my sig. I do apologize if my banner ruined anyone's morning coffee scroll.

Nah, that's fine Ray. It's really just the larger images that can annoying to page through. I think we can live wthout having some iron-clad rule on this - it really hasn't been a big issue here like I've seen on some other boards.
