    Cara is offended. :rofl1:

    Seriously though, signatures help me remember who's who and I've never really been bothered. *shrug*

    but you do have a signature with Cara in it. And the only reason i remember Upendi and Mina is because they have been in your past signatures

    THIS. If you change your avatar I freak out. On any forum, though, not just here.

    I don't think anyone is saying they don't like signatures. What some of us are saying is that while we like the signatures, sometimes there is too much of a good thing. ;) If you have to ask yourself if the sig is too big it's probably time to make it smaller.

    If everyone gets their signatures down to a reasonable size, that would be awesome - I would love to turn them on again.

    I could probably get rid of the text in mine I guess. It's just that on another forum I was part of there were a couple people who talked like they were these expert training gurus with vast competition experience and this went on for years and then you'd find out they had like...a CD on one dog. Which is great but honestly you'd think they had multiple OTCHs from the way they talked. So I just got in the habit of putting it in my signature so if I ever started down that path someone could just look and think, "WTF? What does she know about proofing scent articles? She's never ever earned a UD!" and take whatever I said with a grain of salt lol.

    Kinda silly but I dunno I just prefer to have it out there so there's no misunderstandings, if that makes sense. Delusions of grandeur bother me lol.

    I like sigs that have picture(s) of the dog(s) and the name(s) and breed(s).

    People who don't know about a breed may offend someone by saying "Is that a short haired GSD?" In referring to a Malnois. Which I had NEVER heard of before coming onto Chaz.

    I don't want my ignorance insulting you :p

    Edit: Stick figures of the dogs are also appropriate ;)

    Ha, I get bored of my signature and avatars if I don't change them frequently.

    On another forum I frequent, I used to change my username 3-4 times a year, too.

    That would seriously make my mind explode. What's worse is when I have chaz friends on facebook. I'm all like "Who the f is this and why are they posting pictures of so-and-so's dog from Chaz!?!" People need to have one identity and it needs to be the same so my head can not explode. (Should provide some clues as to why I chose the username I did :rofl1: )

    I really hope my new Sig isn't too big, that's why I changed it the other one somehow came out too obnoxiously huge! I tried to get this one smaller but, somehow it's still larger than I would have liked it, oh well.

    I, in a way, LOVE and HATE sig clutter! I love seeing all the awesome "art" in peoples sigs, and I also like to read all their dogs names and title and such, but I must admit it was really bad some years ago when I was stuck on Dial-up, and that is why I originally chose to frequent another forum where they didn't even allow images in the signatures so it loaded faster, and in some cases some forums where people very obnoxiously clutter theirs wouldn't load at all or would freeze. Obviously I don't have as much of that problem now, but, yeah it can still get annoying.

    I think it bothered some people that my name switched slightly between another forum and this one lol...took off the last two letters since (1) my account was apparently tagged spam when I first registered here so I had to make a new one and (2) I never really likely my name in the first place but, like many people, I made it on a whim when I registered on the other forum to ask a dog food question...never intended to stay...and yeah. Look where that got me ;)

    Totally agree with the rest of the crowd, quick question though...is it large/many pictures that take a long time to load, or is it a sig that is higher than average?

    I ask because I think mine is pretty tall (and I'll actually probably shorten is now, lol) but it doesn't have many pictures/text. Just wondering!

    I'm now all self conscious that mine is too big...

    ETA: On my ACD forum, I get so lost because you have to pay for pictures in your siggie. So helpful to have your dogs and names in a siggie!

    Neither take a long time to load for me, it's just that viewing a 1 sentence post with 3 inches of signature after it is annoying.

    Your images are 240 pixels, plus the additional text. That's fairly large, in my opinion. (but don't change it on my account--I have them blocked anyway. If I want to see it I go into the user profile :p)

    Ah, okay. Changed it up a bit. How'd you find out how many pixels the images are? I mean I can see that on my flickr page, but are you seeing it somewhere on the forum?

    Right click on the image and look at the properties. It will give you size/dimensions/etc

    I HATE the GIF ones. They slow my internet so badly that I avoid threads that people with GIFs have used. /confession

    However mine is huge I think, I haven't been using my laptop forever so I always forget I have one.

    I'm posting so I can see how my sig looks. It's not like I ever see it any other time.

    Same as Linds. I think mine is a little over 200px high, but I'm not entirely sure.

    ETA: Yep, 227 high.
