I just turned sig images off.


So, that's why they don't work.

Any body who PM's me asking why they don't work will be publicly ridiculed!

Public ridicule list!

Subject: Images in sigs no longer work
It's utter bizarre. The image that I've been using in my sig for the past year no longer shows up. This happens whether or not I'm logged in. I can't even see the images in my old sigs.

Heh by hulver (4.00 / 1) #7 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 05:53:46 AM EST
There is that.

Seeing as all I ever see in peoples sigs is No image I don't think I'll miss them anyway.

I logged out while reading a story the other day, and it was horrible.

Well, by blixco (4.00 / 4) #8 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 06:05:15 AM EST
I'm sure many will be disappointed.

But it is hulver.com and not manypeople.com, so there's that.

Still and all, I think we should always do the opposite of what rusty likes.

I am changing my job title by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 3) #20 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 06:44:55 AM EST

to "Senior Systems Adming", to be pronounced in Cubano-English accent. It sounds so much sexier!

Truly American icons.

What do you have against America? WHY?!

*tears*

I've always preferred the site-imposed size limit + user preference method of dealing with sig pics. I do have to say it annoyed the hell out of me the first time I saw giant sigs on here, though.
