    A lot of members on here have interesting things in their signatures from quotes to links and everything in between. Do you ever give that stuff more than a passing glance? I did and got sidetracked on a whole slew of neat stuff!

    Yea, I'm bad about reading them. You never know when you need a good laugh because I have seen some, not on the forum but a trucker's forum that had me down for the count. Plus the nature of someone's signature can give you an idea of what kind of person they are.

    I find the signatures interesting, but rarely bother with the other stuff.

    Like you said, for some, the signature is an extension of their personality.

    Or in my case, a lack of personality or originality.

    Most times they just take up too much space, just like an avatar. If it's more than one line people really ought to think about starting their own web page.

    There is a lot of interesting things in most members sig blocks :)

    Mine has the e-mag link, my layout's web site, the NARA web site and my tag line letting everyone know what scale, I actually model in... (1:20.3)

    Some of that could be condensed, though, right? For example, your modeling scale is probably clearly stated on your web site?

    Being an Admin I think it is his decision and his alone.

    Ralph's for fun!

    Its all about compromise. We want members to have the chance to express themselves a bit or provide information with their sigs but we don't want them to overwhelm the forum with giant pics or paragraphs of text that appear in every post. That's why we settled on the current size parameters for signatures.

    One of my favorite quotes I have come across on this site is an anonymous quote used by Tetters. It has to do with living life on the wild side and living each and every day as if it were your last. Care to quote it for us Tetters? ... or give me permission to cut and paste it here?

    Its not my quote feel free to use it if you will. However since you so politely asked...look down below and read it in all its glory. :mrgreen:

    Yeah - I like that quote too.... :D

    As far as the sig blocks, the posting guidelines state they must be limited to 6 lines, so mine is fine for now, 'till i get tired of it.

    I've changed it about 5 times in the 7 years I've been here :D :D :D

    I tried to keep mine simple, but I do want to update my quote every once in a while.

    I hope that no one's offended, but I used the control panel to disable these functions, so I don't see any of the signatures, avatars, etc. I'm sure that I miss some good ones, but I don't have to look at the rest, either. ;):-D:-D:p

    I don't think the signature says anything about an individual unless they intend it that way.

    Me too! Everything loads so much faster without them, even on DSL.
