I think a link to your photobucket or rf album is good enough. I don't get why people are so worried about showing off their truck in the threads.

Agreed. One of the reasons I really liked this site when I first joined was because of how clean it was. I liked that there was 8 pictures in every post. I like the way it is.


My vote is for Ney. Lets keep it clean.

is there a way that you clod show someone's sig the first time they post in a thread and then not anymore for the rest of the thread? so this post would have my sig and if i post a second time or more, the second,third, fourth, etc. would not show my sig.

Yes there is, Zach will have enable that option though. I know on some forums its a setting you can change in the user panel to see it just once in a thread or in every post.

Yes, you can limit the number of lines in a signature, and you can also change the size of a sig picture. That's why vBulletin is the ****! Well, that's not the only reason why, lol.

its setup to show once per page, so if you post 3 times it only shows the first time on that page. but it seems random or maybe it is only applied to certain sections

I personally support images in the sig as long as they're kept reasonable.

Text loads a lot faster than a picture though. Adding another picture to each persons post would ruin the faster loading time that Zach was going towards.

Because its not a good suggestion. Why are you so worried to show off your truck in a thread? We have a albums on here and you can make a photobucket. If we really wanted to look at your truck its just a click away.

I'm really not worried if you would read my1st post i wouldn't be using my truck i'd be using that kick *** cop car. I'm simply trying to make everyone happy b/c to me it seems the majority don't agreee with the new Avatar size

which now leads me to this poll

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...-you-have.html


now how about you stop trying to turn my thread into a flame fest

I can say whatever I like in any thread I want thanks. Don't read if you don't like.

All I'm trying to say is that we don't have to get anything in return for contributing. Some websites you get a gold bracket around your name and stickers and sometimes just the gold bracket around your name for contributing. So what is the avatar is smaller? You can always not log onto RF its not that hard. Also the mods don't have to give anything in return. I believe it says so when you contribute. No one is making you contribute and if anyone is going to complain about a small little detail then don't contribute. I guess to some people the info on this site isn't worth enough to help keep it alive.

This thread was extremely civil until you decided to chime in. I don't see the harm in trying to compromise. It might not be a big concern for you but for others it is. The whole "if you don't like it then you can find another forum" talk is really counter productive and is not in the best interest of this site. Personally I think its a step in the right direction for the mods/admin to work with the contributors to come up with a solution that works for everyone. I figure we can agree to disagree about avatar sizes and the benefits that come with contributing, but there is no reason to try to rile everyone up and get the thread closed. No one in this thread was really complaining, we are just trying to find a good compromise. There is nothing wrong with that.

I like the idea of pics in sigs rather than avatars, would clean up our alignment problem...

Also, kinda off topic, is there a reason links no longer stand out apart from regular text?
Why is there no more bold/underlined/both formatting for links?

Otherwise, I am really warming up to the new format, looks good. Thanks

IMO, sigs are cool if they are controlled. I'm not sure, with the mentality of some folks on here, if they could adhere to the guidelines and I'm seriously not taking jabs at anyone.

I became a Contributor to support the site, not to get a bigger avatar, decals or whatever else comes along with that. There is a wealth of knowledge here if you choose to read it. The Admins/Mods do a great job. I run my own club forum and alot of time is spent "behind the scenes". Kudos to those who are doing it. If you don't like the new theme, change it (bottom left corner). Lets all get along, get passed the petty BS and remember why we are here: To learn, to share our experiences and knowledge, and to preserve the love of the Ranger.

Are we talking about having both a avatar and a sig pic or just a sig pic?

it was for both, for now, no sig pics, its too much of a 50/50 and I dont see the reason to change it. However we will be asking for everyone to update their avatar to the new size, it just really helps the site look good and formal when it all lines up.
