Turned display of users signatures off, it is weird to not have it - but it also makes it much more compact and less jarring. I'll try it on this setting for a while, some people definitely overdo it, or have signatures that do not fit the website theme/feel.

The small banners that most people used until now were perfectly fine for me. But lately half of the page consists of these overblown and repeating signatures.

For now i've also deactivated them.

Yes, I am using 2 of the slim banners provided on barrens.chat - as they were thematically appropriate, and minimalist.

as soon as i signed up here i went off and edited a nice pic i found on some online photo editing site. you dont even need photoshop to make it look decent these days. ive always loved the feel of old ass forums like these and its gr8 now im not just a fucking noob and using mspaint with that old Chiller font on a background of some storm or abstract pattern thinking i was the shit.

having signatures nd userbars just adds to the nostalgia that we're all here for tbh

I always turn signatures off on every forum I have a account on. Signatures never have anything useful in them and people generally tend to mis-use them as well.

Just want to take a moment to realize that the fact that we're having issues over forum sig size is a very.... vanilla issue to have a discussion about :)

Good times... good times :)

i honestly dont see the issue. internet forum sigs have always been ridiculous. these are still some pretty tame examples. besides, as others have said, you can choose to not see them. i dont see why we should start policing people over something the offended already have the power to disable.

You think you do, but you do.

I love making nice signatures; each time I switch my choice for a main (*sigh*) I update my signature accordingly. Is this what you guys consider big?

I have no idea what you are talking about :)

But in all serious, I generally try to keep any forum sig to sub 800. 500 - 680px to me is the sweet spot of being able to make something cool looking whilst not cluttering the pages too much. I personally love seeing sigs around it takes me back to older forum days when I actually decided to learn to use photoshop, brushes, filters etc to come up with things. I feel it's a lost art in the Discord era :(

I have always hated these big ass signatures which just don't make any sense. Yeah, cool that you have made it in photoshop, but make it smaller so it doesn't take so much space.

Look at this -

My add blocker allows me to right click images and block, so I can leave peoples signatures on, but block the larger ones :lol:

I wish we could use animated gifs :/ and some option other than imgur because its blocked in my country and I don’t see half of yours mostly :/

Edit: Forgot about the subject, yea big sigs are annoying but can be blocked/turned off via the adblockers. And for the people who use big sigs, its a nice challenge to make something small and beautiful, maybe you might enjoy giving yourselves some creative challenge :)

You can use animated GIFs. You can use other image hosts too but most people prefer Imgur so nothing I can do about that.

You can turn off signatures in your barrens.chat Preferences.
