OT, I guess?: Photos in Signature

Can you put a photo in your signature? I'd like to add a nice Big House shot or something along those lines.

stores directly next to or across from other pharmacy chain stores, image signatures waste valuable space.  Your avatar exists for this very purpose.

(And yes, I have a deep hatred for CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens.  They've ruined too many corners in too many towns.)

Woooo let's clutter the board even more with image signatures because the same overused image macros aren't enough

What purpose would shoving a picture of the B1G Haus into your sig serve?

Have you ever tried to participate in a board where this kind of thing is common? It's a nightmare -- somebody makes three or four posts in a thread, and we're scrolling past whatever stupid fucking huge picture they've got up three or four times. Other people start doing it, and soon the thread is completely unreadable.

Images should be banned in signatures -- that's what the avatar is for -- I think they want to allow full HTML so people can include links and such, but images should be a no-no.

Note: the proper tag for this thread is "META:"

I don't understand the point of signature photos.  If the photo means something to you, great, but why do we need to see it?

The tag you want is META rather than "OT - I GUESS?" as META refers to the site itself and your desired changes therein. 

I'm not entirely opposed to images in sig lines as long as there's a limit to the dimensions. Clutter = bad. However, I'm 99% sure users would like to see +1 and -1 actually count before any other improvements are made to the board.

Please no, every board I am apart of has sig lines and its annoying because people break the rules and use too big a picture or the rules they have are not enforced and it you end up scrolling half a page just to get past 1 douches sig picture.
