    Any chance we could have the code turned on in the siggys?? That way, members could put their store banner, swap buttons, etc in their siggys.

    Just a thought....I know it takes up space and bandwidth, though. Maybe anyone that wants to do that could pay a yearly fee??

    Images in signature lines are not allowed. Some people abuse the privilege and ruin it for everyone else. The images are often far too oversized, flashing, blinking, destracting and highly annoying. Only the BCY smilies can go in the signature line. Over use of those results in removal of them as well.

    Oh, I know, we aren't supposed to question but....couldn't there be an approval process? I wanted to put my one little beloved teacup smiley in my sig and found I couldn't - why are the majority of good posters being punished due to the abuse of a few? I know, I know, I shouldn't ask but this just irks me. Sorry, I'll be good from now on, I promise!

    If there was a way to control the approval process and make it so it wasn't a problem with thousands of people changing them all the time we might think about it.

    Honestly, there have been requests to remove the ability to have smileys in sigs and also to completely remove signatures all together. We've pushed back on this since sigs are a part of the forum community and help us get to know one another better.

    So, that being the case, we'll leave the ability to have sigs and to put smileys in them (in moderation) but we won't be allowing images in sigs.

    We appreciate the suggestions and ideas (even if we can't make the change) and hope you guys will keep the wheels turning. The member feedback is what helps us to make the site better all the time!

    I understand, just figured it couldn't hurt to ask.
