Today is a great day in NG history.

No more sig threads in General. None.

Why? We don't need them. There are several active sig clubs in C&Cwhose entire purpose is to create signature pictures for people like you.

So, join one of these clubs if you like to make sigs, and if you want one made for you, ASK IN THOSE THREADS.

New sig thread = ban.

I don't know how I can be any more clear about this.

No more sig threads in General forum.

I'm so glad you made this.

Can I give a sig with a red boarder and a black background saying "DIRTYSYKO RAWKZ!"

Thanks ahead of time :)

I concur. However, This thread will be bad news for many of those people in general who requests sigs that they NEVER use. What a turn of unfortunate events!

About time. <3

I'd like to see less unorganized sig making here, and more unified sig makingc onducted in the great CC threads. If you are in need of a sig, or want to fill requests, the ASM will fill your every need.

Where do I sign?

The sigs people have been offering have been getting exponentially worse and worse, so this couldn't have come at a better time. I don't get how people thought the sigs they made when they first opened up a cracked version of photoshop and pasted a cut out Anime or Videogame character onto a red backround were good enough to display and offer to everyone online?

Only one of those threads seem to stay active, so it is obvious that, the oth3r two need some infulx of new people.

I think three is more than enough. I have seen more people get furstrated by the fact that they ask for sigs and nothing gets done.

Dude, there are THREE sig making crews in C+C. If everyone that keeps making numerous sig topics in General just uses those threads, they will be able to keep up with requests from people that find it necessary to have an uberleet sig.

ramagi or I will most probably lock it, there are enough sig making clubs, just join whichever of the established ones meets your skill level, simple.

Have all mods been notified about this new rule, or will it be more of a personal rule? I see 2 other mods have already replied here, acknowledging it.

It would be nice if there could be no more photoshop threads; they do get a little annoying when ten of them are on the front page of the General board.

Also, just a side note... this isn't just me.

This is a decision reached by the mods, as a group.

Next up: Collab threads.

It's not just TheShrike, it's a decision from all the moderators. All to often some newb makes a sig thread, does 4-5 and then lets it drop, or they make a new one when theirs sinks past the first page, or gets locked, and or deleted.

Then we have the people that literally make new ones every week, or more.

It's just a waste of space to have 3-4 sig threads in general, at any time, by different people. This action, is aimed at the people who make a thread, and abandon it as soon as it's older than a couple of hours at the very least.

I think the current rule on those (must have flash in the portal) is strict enough. The bbs is a place for people to communicate and not everyone has aim so sometimes collabs have to be managed on the bbs

Yeah, I guess, but I see those threads getting flooded with requests soon.

Ah well, I like the one I have now. And if I need another one, I'll have to get over my impatience and go to C+C.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea to me. Most are crappy, anyway.

AI can understand why you'd say that, but I've read through more than a few myself, and they're ridiculous, sometimes.

Sure, we want to encourage communication, but should we stiffle the growth of much more legit threads for any kid who wants to feel like the boss for a day? Pfft.

Aww i liked the sigs either it was or bad still it was something new to see once in awhile.
In away its at my expense cause i'm too lazy to go to other forums other then.
It seems the ng forums doesn't like pictures anymore.
First the image gallery, then the porn ban (which was actually a good idea), now the sigs.
CHANGES :(

Did you even read my post, or did you just glaze over at 'three?' Because I explained how that would work.

I almost feel like making one so that I can see this supposed ban message thing in the reply box. Unless that's an urban legend.. In which case I feel foolish.

Good decision though, mods.
