Levak: I don't think anyone is going to "hate" you over your opinion! I think its a good thing that you brought it up to keep the signatures in check. I realized that I really didn't need two videos in my signature :) I also realized that not everyone has the fastest internet speed (especially after looking through the post your speed topic) and crazy sigs might really get annoying! I remember when I had to use my cell phone to connect to the internet. No 3g, just my iden phone plugged into my computer and I only had close to dial up speeds, images were not an option :(
Yeah I'm glad on my phone I have Tapatalk, because when I use the city bus, other public wi-fi or am not close to the computer things are slow otherwise. I can't download attachments from Tapatalk, though. (It does nothing). GIFs are usually fine but anything with javascript and AJAX just slows down insanely.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Wow this topic is already 4 pages ! O.O I'm too lazy to read through it but hopefully my cleaner sig is OK now. I also made my avatar static (and compressed) because some people complained about hypnotization. :P

Spoiler For Totally off topic:
Also not really the place but 777 posts ! :w00t:

Question: On the new board, would some sort of AJAX spoiler tags be feasible, so that the spoiler content doesn't load until expanded?

I also wonder if sig lenght and file size detection would be hard to implement when people change their sig (although file size detection would be easy to circumvent, as the user could upload an 1 KB GIF somewhere then once the sig is edited, replace it with a much larger one)? That way you could get rid of scrollbars, which can be a little annoying when scrolling through pages using a mousewheel.

Possibly. Not on the plans right now though.

There was also the episode with signature chatrooms, where there was a site letting you create shoutboxes that showed up in a JPG or PNG then display it in sigs. Some Omni haters at the time used them to circumvent Omni rules by trolling in those chatrooms instead of the forums. O.O

How would those work? Could you show me an example?

Basically, you created a shoutbox on some random site (sigchat I think) and it was possible to view a screenshot of the chat as an image. Think of if Omnimaga allowed users to embed OmnomIRC in their sigs, but in read-only mode and only updating on page refresh. All you did was using IMG tags to put it in a forum sig
