Signature Pics Limit

Bruce,

I propose to limit the pictures in everyone's signature to one, and a small one, at that (say, 2"x2" max). While I understand that most here are very proud of their rides, it gets tiring to roll down one-liner posts followed by many large photos (in two rows) of a Box that I've already seen dosens of times in the same thread. Sigs are just that -- sigs, not albums -- and they should take up max 20% of the thread's content. Just my opinion.

Z.

point well taken and respected.....as soon as the crowd said take it out or Bruce, I will take one of them out but isn't as bad as a sig w/ all their mods proudly done with their car? w/c "I Love to read all the time"

If there's one thing to blame...blame NickCats for showing me how to put sig....ahahahahaha! j/k, Nick

Personally, before I do something, I ask myself how things would turn out if everyone did the same. If I like the outcome, and I believe that others may not object, then I do it. You either prefer that everyone fits many large photos in their sigs, or you don't. If you do, then we should really discuss how clarity and brevity would suffer if everyone had photo albums in their sigs. If you don't, it's a bit selfish to be allowing yourself something that you'd prefer others didn't do.

I second the motion to limt them, if you want three, just make them skinnier so it all fits on one line at least 2 inches high. I just hope we dont get retaliation and someone makes a 10 picture sig now, lol.
