Signatures are far, far more annoying than animated avatars. They break up the flow of the conversation, they clutter the message area, they force someone to read the same damn quote over and over again, and they usually take up way more space than the actual message. And the last time I looked, they were also allowed to be animated. But the devs still left them in.I have to agree with Blandt here; animated avatars are distracting when reading posts, and it can even make reading almost impossible for some disabled people. Others will find it just very annoying. The best solution is: keep them in the profiles and profile cards. And I applaud the devs for not adding it as a feature, as this will improve the UX on all XF powered forums.
