Sigs could help people in their struggle to distinguish certain members a bit, it gives a member a 'deeper' identity. Of course it only works if people don't all use the same picture in their signatures... I recall from the BGDungeon period we suddenly had 6 or 7 people who got the exactly same picture of Drizzt in their sig, and many people replied to a certain person while thinking it was someone else because they thought they automatically identified that person because of that signature.

I am not a big fan of Sigs. I dont mind a few words, but people who use big massive sigs and animated sigs(No offense, Curian) annoy me as they slow down the thread Tremendously, I get really annoyed when the thread comes to a stand still because of them.

I dont mind all of them just the really big ones, why cant people decrease the size of there pictures.

I'll stick with Grojlach's explanation and in the mean while, use this thread for a minor sig test.

I have just got a pic from the Beautiful Freak album by the Eels, because I like the album a lot and the pic is quite good. I am changing the writing every week, a different phrase each time. All from the same album, mostly summing up my views on life. Thats why I use it really, an expression. And because I like the look of it. Also I think Sir Curian has a point about being able to spot your own posts, you can tell if you have already posted something at a quick glance when you look in a thread.

Well, I'll have to go with Barry on this, I like my pic, and also, as Curian says, you can spot your posts easier [img]smile.gif[/img]

I use my sig because:

- I think it's very good made (thanks again Saz!:thumbsup)
- Easy to see when scrolling down messages
- Cool to have something that people can 'notice' you, so it kinda becomes a trademark.



see ya!

Originally, I just wanted to be "cool" like everyone else. Peer pressure I guess...lol.

But in the end, all the reasons listed previously, have made it practical.

Well, I think sigs are very cool and I do like being able to tell at a glance who has posted. We once posted who we thought had the strangest, prettiest, creepiest, etc. sigs. We don't seem to have a prob here with people using the same pic. I have never seen my sig (I use the avatar on other sites) used anywhere else. BTW a friend made it for me.
