Me too. Same topic.

I am all for signatures. Always have been. I love to get creative with Photoshop and make cool little signatures. Some forums I have even made signatures for others because I enjoy doing it.
The main reason the previous owners didn't want to do it is because they didn't want us unpaid mods to have yet one more thing to police. You can imagine how easy it could be to make some rude siggy's.
But I am willing. Set a small size limit and (this is the important part) MAKE IT THE DEFAULT THAT SIG FILES ARE OFF. To preserve the current look for current members. If you want sigs ON you would have to turn them on manually.
If this cannot be set to OFF FOR ALL MEMBERS then I am against siggnatures. A lot of people are anti sgnatures and would get real mad if they logged in and suddenly there were on.

Sigs with images, or just plain text sigs?

Also, I absolutely hate that the board stretches itself across my screen. I despise reading thousand character long lines. Is there any way we could take a vote on whether to constrain the horizontal dimensions of the board?

Speaking as a user of a 1920x1200 laptop, I can only say...

My. Dead. Body.

If you want a narrower window, just resize your browser. Don't make me waste half my screen.

we can set something like this up, so with an events section linked to it.

There are events boards now, but AFAIK the event organizer can't automatically or manually PM to all members in the group about upcoming events. Maybe that's something Helena can help us with.

+1 for the pictures signatures thats a feature i really miss from other sites and the whole 3 line thing kills me. And can we also make it visiable when we are signed in?

and the chat box would be a great feature add in, another site you guys own (7thgenhonda) has a pretty well set up chat box. i know you guys were not the ones to put it there but im sure you can copy the source code. And btw a chat box can cut down on fluff questions it keeps people from creating useless threads where they only need one simple answer.

Can we have the old time stamping on posts back please, I really don't like this "minutes/hours ago" business,

Also, post/pages I've read are no longer automatically updating to show I've read them. Unless I manually click "show as read", all posts are showing as new.
(this is not happening while still on the site, but happens when I close my browser, then come back to the site later.)

Yes, yes and yes! 50 is way too little especially if half of those are your sent messages are exactly half of the 50 capacity. I might be wrong here though

I suggest people here who are impotent to check out some other sites with lots of pop-up ad boxes
