    Signatures and Avators....opinions

    It has been brought to our attention and I have noticed myself recently that the board has been running a little slower. A lot of members still use Dial up and are finding the board hard to use as it is slow. This they think is down to signatures and avators.

    So we would like to know your opinion on the following:

    1. Getting rid of them both all together.
    2. Getting rid of one or the other.
    3. Making the sig text only.
    5. making the sig and avator a lot smaller.

    To be honest a lot of the page is taken up by graphice and allthough they are only linked to the site it can take a while for a page to load up.

    So what do you reckon, as always we like to know your thoughts before we change things

    Cheers

    Personally I would say keep the Avators but make the sig text only to speed things up a bit

    Personally I think a limit on the size of the signatures and small avatars woud suffice.

    I am a broadband user and remember how irritating it is for the dial up people.

    I'd say keep both but limit them in size, a lot of other boards I use do this. I'm on dial up myself but I cant remember having speed problems other than when viewing photo's which is to be expected.

    Please turn them all off. It doesn't harm who's talking. Plus the fact some Avstar are still not "work-friendly".

    i say keep them and limit the sise in kb and width hight.

    for me, being dyslexic, it makes it easier for me to remember who everybody is!
