For two reasons: 1) it's really annoying to have to scroll through a bunch of gifs in signatures in nearly every thread, and 2) it slows the loading of new pages down to a crawl. I've had to put those with GIFs in signatures on ignore, not for disagreeing with their views or anything, just that their signatures slow down my browser like crazy. It's obnoxious and surely it puts something of a cramp on the servers.

So I support a ban on GIFs in signatures. In posts? Sure, go crazy. But having GIFs pop up every time you post is just annoying.

Just go in settings and go to look and layout preferences and turn on don't  show users signatures.That will hopefully solve the problem.

I say instead we all chip in to buy Zioneer a new computer.

Unless it's just that the intertubes are that slow in Utah.

Honestly, I just hate all the signatures with GIFs. But I'll take the first suggestion into consideration.

Unless he has a really slow processor or no ram to speek off, GIFs should not have a problem because of the computer. I am running a 2 GHz Processor with 2 Gigs of Ram, with Windows XP and it is displaying fine. 

Now internet connections are an entirely different matter. When I had dial up, they were never load.

It should be noted that I do experience site wide problems after midnight though. However, I don't think it is necessarily because of gif images.

I don't have the greatest internet connection, our internet provider is really terrible. And the internet provider before that was terrible. And the one before that one was also terrible. And it's not like I live in the wastelands of central Utah, I live in a suburb where basically everyone has an internet connection. It's just that the providers have awful connections and service.

You can adblock any particularly annoying signatures if you don't want to turn them all off.

I ended up just turning all of them off. It's a pretty pleasant experience now. Now I just have to judge people by their actual posts, instead of a really annoying signature.

Perhaps a small-ish standardized size for pictures in sigs. Or, an option to show non-picture content in sigs only.

Like almost every other place on the internet.  It doesn't even need to come down from Dave (pbuh), the mods can strong arm posters.
