Sigs in the fourms

Ok, so what's happening with the .sigs in the forums lately Sad
They are getting ridiculously large don't you think Shock

Do we really need to know your favorite quote, the specs of your machine, what OS you use, your projects, your religion, and your grandmothers bra size Blum

Seriously, the sigs are bigger than some of the replies themselves Sad

Really, anything over 3 lines is just, well, ... [insert version here]

1. Polite versions: Distracting, Annoying, WOB {Waste Of Bandwidth}
2. Non-Polite versions: Crap, SelfGrandizement, Nonsense

Just a thought

well...

they are limited. something like 256 chars or 3 lines or something. and i agree that they are getting a bit long. one line is enough.

I don't know about the number

I don't know about the number of characters but the newest winner is 7 lines Shock

Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?

True.

Just figured I'd point out how ridiculous it's gotten.

Mine is acceptable, right?

I made my sig from pure nothing a few time ago when I was having an existencial crisis because I didn't know what kind of sig would project myself into the people. Then I though of the one I have, it shows OSS, it is nice, and as the sigs are small, it is unobtrusive. Also, if the screen is wide enough, the sig is one line Biggrin

And I agree that some sigs are too big. But I think up to 2 lines is Ok, more than that not (I say 2 lines so mine is acceptable Biggrin ).

Blue is everything.

Now I see it as a couple scentences that tell the world how great Open Source is.

I think I would like something like that...

I like yours but does it have to be caps?
