No more sig threads in General. None.
Hmmm, I guess it's a pretty good idea. The majority of these sig threads are crappy, and as has already been mentioned, there are 3 seperate threads in C & C anyway. The other day when I logged on, I saw about 4 - 5 sig threads on the first page of general, so I'm guessing you guys just got fed up with seeing them.
But, what I am thinking about are the themed sigs. Where someone has a set sig they will be making for everyone, I cant really see this working in the current set of C & C sig clubs. It's ok if a user posts, asking for a sig in these threads, but what about a larger undertaking, where a sig maker wants to make lots of certain theme? Also, there are lots of users making sigs; you don't think the relevant threads in C & C will quickly become over run and disorganised? I think this may be a possibilty.
Anyway, I still think it's a good idea, though it's pretty much removes sig makers from the general picture, and exiles them to the only moderately visited C & C. You said next was collab threads, but I only really see these in the Flash forum (not sure if thats what you are referring to, or not).
This doesn't really affect me anyway, as I always use sigs I have made myself, but still, I thought I would offer my opinion. I hope the mods don't get carried away with banning specific types of threads. Yes, it cuts out on spam, but at the end of the day, isn't everything on the BBS spam to a degree?
