If you *really* want to see fast, turn off viewing sigs, I find that much faster.
I started browsing with sigs disabled when the messages/trophies images started to become prevalent. Yes, it's seriously fast then
My sig image loads 2x quicker than a gravatar, even when it's not grabbing it from a cache
ah yes, I really hate those images - time to disable sigs
once again, my sig image loads quicker than my avatar
I did that the first day they showed up .
Regardless, and extra 15 sig images per page load slows things down.
not as much as the 15 avatars though
Completely turn off images in your browser and sites will load even faster.
When those images became prevalent it made me think of suggesting an option for turning images off in sigs without turning off sigs completely.
that's kind of the point I'm making. If the 2kb image in my sig is such an issue, just disable images,css and JS. it'll run even faster then
Are the trophy images hosted on another server?
For me it's not an issue of speed - it's an issue of signatures carrying more weight than the posts themselves. I just want to read what people are saying, rather than being bombarded with signature images etc.
Hopefully there is the option in the ACP to prohibit images in signatures?
That's how I see it. On almost every forum I frequent, (including this) I have signatures turned off.
I tend to not have signatures turned on, unless it is part of the moderating job.
But then again, text signatures are okay. Wouldn't an option of which images / video's you do and don't want to see be a good idea? In that case, you can disable images and video's (which often annoy me personally) in your control panel, without disabling signatures altogether.
I understand that, which is why I tried to design my sig image to blend in to the site as much as possible, obviously other people have other ideas
This had not ocurred to me, I've always thought signatures give people the ability to show some of their personality.
