Probably because it's annoying and it takes ages for a page to load then.

"I" can't do anything

And if they were small, it'd still be annoying.

so if it was annoying no one would want to have pics in his sig except of me

Put a link to your picture, that way no one's annoyed, and you have the picture posted on your signature. Well, kind of.

The world doesn't work that way.

Plus you really shouldn't make yourself more annoying than you already are.

I think the real reason is because spammers would put desktop size pictures as their sigs just to piss people off.

Most forums I go to enable image signatures, but Moderators just crack down on fools who try to be wise asses with spam sigs. They just have limitations on pixel and total file size.

When enabled sensibly, image sigs are a great way for people to show off their photoshop skills (and/or skillz).

Anyway, I'm glad we don't have them here.

I think it's because thus the loading of the pages is faster than with big pictures that serve nothing but pissing people off.

Thank you for repeating what I said. Very useful.

I pretty much agree. It'd be annoying to have it. It's very good this way.

Yeah. Besides, you don't need visuals to remind us that you're totally addicted to cock!

Signatures are already abysmal as hell without pictures. Isn't allowing these people to have avatars punishment enough?

I had a pic in a sig once at a former message board and I was bugging the hell out of myself.

because spics shouldn't be allowed anywhere.

Back when General Discussion was Troll City it would've been a nightmare, but I think it should be allowed since we have a sufficient number of mods now. Just as long as there are size limits, of course.

Remember on the old board when there was no sig limit, and people would have a paragraph on their life followed by the entire lyrics of their three favourite offspring songs?

Or has it been so long that I'm just exaggerating the annoyance in my mind?

it's a mild exaggeration. maybe a couple paragraphs and a one or two songs.

from my understanding, the sig system can't really limit image sizes since it's basically the same as a post except with a much smaller character limit. it would take a lot of work to re-write the sig code so that it would check limits on images like avatars. that's why it's usually left to mods to keep sigs in check on other boards. and we can't edit your sigs.

and i agree with jebus's spic remark.
