That's not a bad idea actually. I don't know about anyone else, but I generally use avatars as an identifier first before even reading the name of the poster. Having no custom avatars makes forums feel so...sterile. Yeah, sterile. I'll go with that.

I will try to stay calm. My post relates to signature settings/functions.

This is what I see right now:

500 x 100 px
Quote:
Allow Basic BB Code No
Allow Color BB Code No
Allow Size BB Code No
Allow Font BB Code No
Allow Alignment BB Code No
Allow List BB Code No
Allow Link BB Code No
Allow HTML No
Allow Image BB Code No
Allow Code BB Code No
Allow PHP BB Code No
Allow HTML BB Code No
Allow Quote BB Code No
Allow Smilies Yes
Can Upload Images for Signature Yes
Can Upload Animated GIF for Signature Yes
I may be mistaken, but this is what we had before:

500 x 150 px
Quote:
Allow Basic BBCode Yes
Allow Color BBCode Yes
Allow Size BBCode Yes
Allow Font BBCode Yes
Allow Alignment BBCode Yes
Allow List BBCode Yes
Allow Link BBCode Yes
Allow HTML No
Allow [IMG] Code Yes
Allow Code BBCode Yes
Allow PHP BBCode Yes
Allow HTML BBCode Yes
Allow Quote BBCode Yes
Allow Smilies Yes
Can Upload Images for Signature Yes
Can Upload Animated GIF for Signature No
Are these settings in error? I ask because it seems extremely punitive if not. When compared to the other signature settings across the various other PW gaming forums, there seems to be no uniform template. Is this a matter for each community to decide what is suitable? Some forums have higher pixel values (500 x 200), some forums allow basic BB code, some do not etc.

However, Jade Dynasty in particular seems to have a more liberal and slightly similar set to our previous set of settings, albeit added GIF support and no alignment.

Allow Quote BB Code No

I quote this by way of giving an example of where fewer restrictions have been placed upon current users of a PW style forum.

Without getting emotive on the matter, could you please clarify if we are likely to see some flexibility on our forum signature settings - on the order of allowing BB code: Color, IMG , URLS, Alignment? Or if this is non-flexible.

If the latter, could I also request some reasoning behind that decision given my aforementioned and quoted inconsistencies across the PW forum network for such settings.

Thank you.

I personally, personally hate the new dev tracker. Why? I don't want to see what everyone has posted. I want to keep only the threads where someone posted in from the DEVs. It makes reading easier instead of just getting the entire reply to the thread in the dev tracker itsself. Plus it looks like just thrown-in stuff. Please return it to the "Only-Thread" view so we can only see the threads where someone posted in.
