Careful, you'll start another star war.
Yeah. For example, fanfic forum rules state that one of the few places we can promote our fanfics is in our signature. If we can't use BBCode, then we can't link to our fics, and that leads to sad times. So BBCode is fine.
Emoticons are fine too. They don't do any harm, and if you disable the boards' emoticons, people will just use Unicode emoji characters anyway.
We also allow users to promote things like their eBay auctions in their signatures. If we took that away we'd probably see a rise in advertising posts.
"You can't have a star war here, this is a Star Wars forum!"
I want to click a button to force everyone to see my signature.
And yeah, I liked the old IGN limits on them.
I’d be okay with URL links with no flair, and that’s it. But I’m not a fan of all those:
Disciple of Darth_Horchata
#3 in MangoDeLorean Trials
Read my fic: What If TROS Wasn’t Garbage?
I wonder if character count limits, which are basically a necessity given the exploit, would just affect that anyway by limiting BBCode.
You could also add a lightsaber too:
So what you're saying is that you want people to have annoying, colorful manual sigs?
Please do this.
but your star will be gone
Good, it's gaudy.
I've AdBlocked the stars on my laptop; wish there was a way to do so for my iPhone.
When the boards upgraded with all the bells and whistles people loved it. It's fine as is.
Imagine yourself walking home naked, and me behind you, dressed as a nun, ringing a bell, and chanting “shame”.
Where do I sign up?
I'm learning in my college class that every single modifier to an HTML or CSS page makes it load longer. These stars are making the boards slow. The sigs are making the boards slow. The registered: dates under the usernames are making the boards slow. Get rid of it, get rid of THEM ALL!
Keep registration dates and ****-can everything else, especially stars and sigs.
You guys are no fun.
Yeah, that half a second it takes for pages to load is an eternity.
Every thread in Comms makes the boards slower. And, also, our brains slower.
Stop, next thing you know people will be asking to delete Comms.
I’d go further - cancelled.
