    Please can all members ensure that their signature size is in line with the forum rules. (see below)

    7. Signatures / Avatars / Titles
    - If you use inappropriate avatars, they will be removed and you will have your avatar privileges taken away. These rules also apply to custom titles... do not abuse these features. Signature text to be a maximum of four lines. Signature images to use an area no larger than 500x100 pixels.

    Failure to comply with this simple rule makes threads much harder to read and impacts the forum for all.

    This issue keeps reoccurring so please take a moment to go into your profile and edit where necessary as it is a mammoth task for the mods to have to chase everyone up individually.

    I have never seen the point of signatures, or indeed avatars. To me they are an annoying, repetitive, invariably unfunny waste of space that fills up my page with the same pointless sh1t again & again.

    I have never seen anyone's avatar or sig, I have always turned them off on the User CP.

    having a signature (txt or img) makes the whole forum more "user-friendly" but beware of excess!

    Just a gentle reminder on this one folks - some signatures are becoming so large that they distract from thread content.

    It would be appreciated if everyone tries to keep in line with the above signature rules.

    Same here + avatars.

    Changing # of posts per page to 50 makes it quicker too!
