Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Absolutely. I flipped the switch like 4 years ago and haven't looked back since.

I like reading witty signatures and the like, but flicked it off a couple of years back because there were too many large pics in people's signature blocks.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

No. I like signatures, it helps me learn more about who a poster is. Cheesy, I know, but whatever.

I found the signatures so distracting and traumatic initially, that after I signed up for the Forum, I didn't post for a year or two except for a couple maybe. And then I bitched, and someone told me how to turn them off, and then I started posting.. Yes, whomever told me how to turn them off should be perma-banned no doubt about it. Tongue

Now however I am used to them, and really hardly see them anymore, and turned them on a couple of years ago. The mind adapts. In fact, it is kind of an interesting case study really. Maybe it should be written up in some neurological journal or something.

I turned signatures off about 2 or 3 years ago. Of course, I'm sure I still have a signature up on mine. It makes this forum so much easier to read. I came on once without logging in from a friends computer, and man it was annoying! All the people who have some huge pictures, or annoying gifs.. I don't think I'd ever turn them back on at this point.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

No, I like signatures. Though I'd strongly support some sort of limit on the size of images in them.

Or even better, I'd like it if there were an ignore signatures feature, where you're only ignoring a specific poster's signature.  So I could ignore Hashemite's signature, but not necessarily Hashemite.

I left them disabled for my first several months as a poster, but I've enjoyed them since I re-enabled the feature not long ago.

AdBlock and the ignore function are sufficient to keep them under control.

Of course.

Indeed.  This is the only "adult" message board I go to that doesn't have a size limit on sigs.
