It has always been a rule ''_ it just wasn't strictly enforced until now.

As it was said before, we're sorry that we have to do this, but it's something that needs to be done. We hope that you guys understand and help make this forum a better and smoother running "machine."

I'm sorry that members feel that we are being "big brother" or "stifling your creativity". You can have your siggy still, just make it smaller! I really don't see the big deal

Please keep everything civil guys.

Yes, Signatures are only for people who "live" on the internet. That's a great observation. I guess I should go outside and see what these things people are talking about called "trees."

I think it's about expressing yourself. I say get rid of them all together.
Its been in the rules since Day 1, just never enforced until it became a problem.

never affected me personally but removing image signatures isn't the way to go, restriction is ok but not removing!

Sorry I'm one of those types that usually responds before reading the whole thread. But hey, maybe the point will hit home. :/

Thanks for a good laugh. The rules are there for a reason even if we don't like them we still need them we all need to respect the rule and the members here that's what make this community the best out there. Sambooka puts a lot of time and money in to this have some respect. I just want to Thank Sambooka and all Mods for everything they do for this community so we can all have a place to learn and have fun.

my opinion
We have to remove all .. because we have Members with huge banners from years ago. I don't have the time to pick through 10,000+ Members.

So we are removing "all signatures, including me and the MODs" and then the active Members that qualify can post their signatures back up.

We are ALL having signatures removed, and then rebuilding them to the new rules.

Hope that makes more sense? .. and clarifies why? Think of it as spring cleaning.

Cheers!

HA! This thread took off after I last looked yesterday. I say unless you are Sambooka or the great BP, who donates more than everyone else, just deal with it. And even they are dealing with the rules.

I like the idea of everyone starting fresh. I know what it is like to have to go through everybody and clean stuff up, I have had to do it on the Network here at work. Not fun at all. Whatever makes life simpler then I am for it.

well i run the crap out of my computer along with the fact that my internet here can be pretty bad some times doesnt help either. all the sigs do is waste bandwidth, after you read them once you dont need to read them again

we are pretty lucky that we get avatars and signatures here for free, on jeepforum as a free member you get 5 pms in your box, no avatar, no sigs, cant delete posts, etc etc (see http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/announcement.php?a=5 ) if you pay 30 for a year or 200 for life you get these things but only then.

i dont get why this is such a big deal, if you are not getting your individual expression out, make a thread in off topic and fill it to your hearts content and put the link as your sig

Well this is the first I saw this thread. I had an animated sig, I guess it's gone now? It doesn't seem like a huge deal to ask for no animated images, and to put a size restriction, but the restriction seems a tad tiny. I would rather have to wait an extra half a second to load a page than to have to go buy some reading glasses to see a sig. Personally I have never had trouble loading a page on here (except the gif page in the general yadayada lol). And I didn't read all of this thread so maybe it was addressed already, but I think a restriction needs to be put on how much text can be in a sig if youre making a size limit on images. Because the biggest sigs I have seen were text sigs.

Just giving my opinions, not complaining.
