Our old forum software had a mod installed which prevented people from placing images in signatures.  Since we switched over to SMF it is technically possible to insert an image in your signature but it is still against the Code of Conduct.

Specifically:
Quote
Signatures
Signatures are allowed, but try to keep them relatively short so they donít become a distraction from the flow of the forums.  Images or banners are not allowed in your signature.  Personal websites linked in your signature are typically okay as long as they donít violate any of our rules.  If you have any doubts ask a moderator.

If you have an image in your signature (even a banner or image link to your Gamercard or Xbox Live Profile) please remove it.  If you are considering putting one in your signature please smack yourself in the forehead then move onto something else.  URL links to your Gamercard or something is fine but banners aren't.

Cool?

Agreed. Everyone should only have text in their sigs unless it's me and ...I was going to say Ed X but he'd probably have pics of men kissing. Hmmm. Not Purge, he should just be banned....Definitely not Ceekay lest he 'anime himself' again.  Kevin? Nah. Probably post a real time paint drying gif.  Hmmm.  Juniordan!

And we have come full circle.

Perfect.

What broke in SMF then?  When I helped beta I thought Ron had taken care of locking down sigs due to some "extensive, abusive testing" I did during the beta.  I could have sworn he had managed to completely block images in sigs.  Not complaining, and to be honest I haven't read the CoC recently so I guess I need to refresh.

Because they suck and are far too easy to abuse and annoy others with. I guarantee you if you think the image in your sig looks cool, it doesn't. At all. So no images in sigs whatsoever. There. ninja2

Is this something that doesn't show up using the Black/Gray skin?  I've never seen anyone with a sig here.

Reading comprehension for the win!!

I wasn't complaining about not being able to use the gamertag banner (which btw took up less screen space then signatures such as ATB's), I was merely wondering what broke because during the beta test Ron managed to lock down sigs to prevent images, or so I thought.

I have no idea Arkon.  I'm guessing there's some setting that didn't get flagged when Ron recently upgraded SMF to version 1.1. 

If I could have one I'd go with the weird anime style:







Edit:  hell I feel so icky looking at those I'm tempted to report myself to a moderator.

I just have to put the line of code back in.  Patching broke it.  I've been really really sick the last two days so I've not had the chance.

Cool, glad to know I wasn't imagining it being fixed during beta and yuck to you being sick.

I'm pretty sure the term "Violation of the CoC" needs to be said.
