Signature Pictures

Hi admin!

Is it possible to make a poster's signature show up with only their first post in each thread and automatically disable it afterwards? I know we have the option to do so manually, but not many people are aware of it and remember to use it.

It would help make the site more "work-friendly", load faster, and make it easier on those who are viewing on small screens.

I don't claim to understand the techical side of things, but I have to imagine that some of the larger signatures use a lot of bandwidth/space (??) and add to the expense of running the forum.

I don't claim to know what I'm talking about here either, but I believe if the signature pics are linked from a site like Photobucket, that they don't use up bandwidth/space here.

As for my opinion on this thread topic.. I enjoy seeing everyone's signatures and don't even mind if they are somewhat larger (like my size, or Ambesi's, or MssJnnfer's) There are just some that use several pictures that take several scroll's to move past that its somewhat annoying. Even if they put multiple pictures ACROSS, instead of up and down, that would make a huge difference.

But I don't really care. If it stays the same, I'll deal with it. I'd actually prefer there not to be a set max by the forum, as on most other forums I've been on that have a set max, its TINY!!
I link all of mine to my photobucket account. I don't use the gallery at all here. It may take those with dial-up longer to view the threads though???

That's just because their internet is slower in general, not because the actual forum itself is running slower.
I made a new one that is 250 pixels tall. Is it too wide now?

Looks great!! I don't care if it takes up the entire width of the box.. it doesn't mean any extra scrolling if its really wide!
