    So a new forum (for Turisas) and all this 'fancy' stuff along with it. So we had avatars already on the Trolleve phpBB messageboard and they were kept with a reasonable size.

    This Ultimatemetal thingy gives the chance for larger avatars and you can even ad pictures in posts and signatures. I myself turned those off from my profile a long ago, but had to test how this board looks in all of it's glory just to start this thread. Well I almost puked when I scrolled down few topics, all those overlysized, ugly and no-point-in-them pictures in signatures and way too much of nonsense for the text part.

    So now I ask what do you think of these clearly so useful options like too big pictures, lot's of text in signatures etc.

    And for those who dislike them as I do, go to your profile and from there you can switch them off.

    Well I kind of agree with you Mr. Diablo, but since I currently have a pic in my signature to spread the word about my new zine, well I should just shut up :lol:

    extremely large and/or broad ones are extremely annoying.
    but nothing's wrong with a reasonably sized banner/avatar, imo :)

    I thunk there really should be a set limit on the size of people`s avatars and signatures, Less is more in my opinion

    The signature looks a little big - What about not having so many spaces inbetween the different parts of your signature?

    bodomite: Well, your signature is a really good example. I have to say that's the most huge and most irritating one I've seen in a long time... :p
