How long is too long?

A few have been bothering me as of late. Partly because of the sheer length of them, and the fact that they could be nearly half the size that they are if they just didn't needlessly enter spaces and such (http://www.offspring.com/forums/member.php?find=lastposter&f=2).

I looked around and saw no guidelines on this. If no one else is bothered then by all means do nothing, but I noticed they are starting to creep bigger and bigger.

There should be a limit that says you can only have like... five or six lines or something. Anyway, I'm just glad I don't have to see ten userbars in every signature. "Windows user", "Google user", "Firefox user", "Winamp user"... now THAT'S annoying.

There is indeed a problem when an user's signature is longer than their average post. Even more so when a huge part of their average post is garbage.

zamengo's signature is driving me inseane. it's couple of times longer than his average post and it takes ages to pass HUGE signature just to read 10 characters post -.-

I've thought about long signatures for a bit. So far there have been a few that have been long enough to be annoying, but not to the point of being disruptive. However, if it's a problem, we'll try to hash out rough standards for length, though I do think that "about the size of your average post" is a fair standard.

I think anything longer than mota boy's is annoying, and I wouldn't allow it.. this isn't art class.. it's a bbs to talk about offspring if that much isn't, if you can't express yourself in 8 lines, than you really don't have anything important to say.. the shitty thing is, if we turn off the sigs in the control panel we miss the good ones and miss out :(

That "O" is a letter, not a number. Please don't give the letter-number replacement thing a bad name (or rather, a worse name). I don't wanna be grouped with that tryhard in any conceivable way.

The other board I post at has a physical limit on the sig. I think it's like 200 characters. If you go over, it won't let you save it. I think 200 is a little short... I think maybe 500 is reasonable. Zagmen's is clearly well over 500 characters.

I don't know how to request bans, but I honestly think that zagmen has reached banning level. Either that, or his posts should atleast be deleted. He doesn't even post anything coherant anymore. I have him on my ignore list, but people quote him all the time, so I still see what he posts. And it's nothingness besides a bunch of capitalized letters and screaming.

zamengo is the most annoying user on these boards. It takes ages to pass through his signature, he's bumping extremely old threads just 'for fun', he doesn't have anything else to say but 'Omg, lololololol, really? wtf?'. All in all, he's just another spamer.

ZagmenO, just because you're still in that akward stage of development where you think that everything you find entertaining in the slightest has to be funny to everyone else too, it doesn't mean we all have to suffer for it until you grow out of it.

You just gave an excellent answer to your own question.

I was going to have my sig even longer, but i couldn't it says:
1. Your signature can not be longer than 500 characters excluding BB Code markup. But i understand that it is annoying, I'm gonna do something about mine.
EDIT: I made it smaller hope it's okay. Maybe i will put a pic in there instead.

If there had been a bigger fan than me out there, (we can take an example). Like the sneakers, if there had been a bigger fan than me out there they probably should have bought the sneakers. Even if they haven't got the money they should get them in some way. Like me i worked hard a whole summer for those money. Nobody else bought them which makes me to a really big fan. It was a hard competition to get them, but i got them.

nightvision
01-06-2007, 05:20 AM
So you're saying that the more pointless shit you're buying the bigger fan you are? Alright...

How about the old stuff? Do you have everything? I'll Be Waiting, They Were Born To Kill, Baghdad (both black and clear), S/T original? Didn't think so. But you're still one of the biggest Offspring fans ever in your mind? Makes sense...

And it was a hard expensive competition for me to get all of the Offspring's pre-Epitaph vinyl. But I did it, too. And i'm not the only one--there are several people on here that own it all. It's not a fucking competition here over who the biggest fan is. You don't need to prove anything to anyone and the fact that you are trying to is really, really obnoxious. So quit.

That doesn't make you a bigger fan, that just makes you a moron who wasted an entire summer to buy something that's not worth even a quarter of the money you paid for it. Seriously, you bought another person's shoes because you like that person. That's really, really pathetic. Maybe buying someone else's shoes because they're really nice shoes is justifiable, except for the kind of money you paid it's still stupid. Especially since those shoes will probably be worthless in a few years, and you'll grow out of this obsession in a few years. Hopefully, anyway.

Paying a lot of vinyl or a rare bootleg is different because at least it has some connection with the band's music. But a singer's shoes?

As for your "IM THE BIGGEST OFFSPRING FAN EVEA!!!!" bullshit, no one respects it or is impressed at all. Even here with the legions of fanboys we have, very few people are impressed.

Paying $510 for a pair of shoes that don't fit you, have been used, and are sweaty and smelly... is messed up. Maybe if you happened to have been backstage and you found them or something... but you wasted tons of money on shoes. SHOES. I think the vinyl thing is kinda weird, too... but shoes?? Seriously. You didn't buy the shoes of the world's best runner, or something. You bought the shoes of a singer who got an average time in one marathon. Good god.

Jakebert
01-06-2007, 07:50 PM
Actually, the vinyl thing makes sense. Rare vinyl, even if it's the Offspring, can be worth a pretty good sum of money. Plus, I can understand the appeal of owning it. I have some old vinyl LP's that my parents gave me, and they're really cool.

Lodat225
01-06-2007, 08:24 PM
Lodat, shut up. No one here gives a fuck at all about your opinion.

But you actually think you're going to hurt his "pride" by saying that it was a waste of money? No. So why don't you shut up and get back to the topic?

Jakebert
01-06-2007, 08:42 PM
No, we're just trying to explain to him that the bragging is pointless and dumb, because maybe unlike you, he realizes that being a complete moron isn't a good thing, no matter how much attention he's getting.

Little_Miss_1565
01-07-2007, 03:04 AM
The issue here is not whether or not it is worth it to collect, often at great expense, things that relate to or have some kind of significance to something we really enjoy. In this case, shit related to the Offspring. Whether you get it or not is besides the point. Biggest Offspring Fan is trying to say that buying Dexter's marathon shoes makes him the biggest fan because anyone else who was a bigger fan would have won them at auction instead. That logic is false, because the only thing you need to have to place an eBay bid is the money to back up the bid, not the love in your heart for what it relates to and stands for.

Jakebert
01-07-2007, 08:43 AM

Because, he's just a young fanboy, and usually those people grow out of that at some point because it hits them that it's dumb.

Alright, I understand how Biggest Offspring fan loves to mention how he owns Dexter's shoes and rare Offspring vinyls. I like to brag too. I wouldn't put it in my signature and bring it up everytime someone agrues about being a big Offspring fan, but I'd be proud of it and try to make others jealous, none the less.

People, I don't know how you can deny the "coolness" of owning of the shoes and the vinyls. I own many Billy Talent singles, promos, vinyls, t-shirts, and other memorabilia [/brag]. I know I'm likely not anywhere near being the biggest Billy Talent fan, yet I still probably would buy marathon shoes of the members'. The way you are acting, could you be envious maybe? Let him believe he's the biggest Offspring fan, I mean, he could be.
