View Full Version : Signatures are coming back... Here's how it works

Hey gang.

We took a vote and the signatures coming back option has won out. Not by a huge margin, but it has won out nonetheless. I have mixed feelings about this personally, as I enjoy the character and personality it brings to the board and brings out of the posters, but I hate the borderline stuff that puts undue stress on myself and our fair moderators.

Rather than go through a whole voting system of what's acceptable and what's not acceptable and all that other crap that ends up being a mine field of "you didn't include this option, you didn't include that option, now these options are out of balance," I'm just going to do what I've done in the past that seemed to work out pretty well... I'm going to use my best judgement to make things as fair as I can to all the parties involved, and make adjustments as their needs arise.

So at this time let me address a few of these parties, as I see them:

People Who Don't Want to See Signatures
The good news is, if you don't want to see signatures, you never have to, so there's absolutely nothing changing for you. Simply go to your "User CP" and click "Edit Options." In there you will find a section called "Visible Post Elements" where you can turn off signatures and even avatars. Here is a shortcut to that page. (http://www.orangemane.com/BB/profile.php?do=editoptions)

People Who Want Signatures Done This Way, That Way, or The Other Way
This is the stuff that got me in trouble last time because options start setting up against other options, but helping other options, and it just turns into a mess. It's like Ralph Nader screwing up what the majority of people want and letting Bush sqeak in (:poke::laugh: ). So instead I have a solution that I think that everyone will at least think is fair. I hope you're with me, and will at least be ok with what's fair.

Moderators
This is going to be easy. The rules are going to be black and white. If they're broken, then it's easy. That person loses their signature privledges. Period. If there is any question on the appropriateness of the signature, you send a link to another mod, and if two mods agree that it's over the line, privledges get lost. It's that simple. Will people complain? Will there be a debate? Sure. Over in the horses butt, there will be plenty of discussion, I'm sure. Let 'em complain over there. The community will overwhelmingly support action against the borderline stuff, believe me. The majority of folks here surf from work anyway, and as an administrator, I want to cater to this sensitivity (I used to be a cubicle surfing Maner myself). When anyone posts a signature that is borderline, that's just the risk that they're taking. If they want to go there, that's on them, but the minute they submit a borderline signature, they're taking a gamble with their privledges. Sometimes when you gamble, you lose. It'll be up to the mods to determine the winners from the losers. But let me make something a little more clearer: ANY TWO MODS. So if one mod thinks something might cross the line, and the second mod does not... and then a third mod does not... And then the fourth mod DOES... The privledges are lost. There are no tiebreakers to worry about. There is no BS petitioning. If any two of our very sensible and fair mods agree that the line has been crossed, then the line has been crossed... and privledges are lost. There is a user group titled "Registered (No Signature)." You simply set that as the user group in their back-end profile. If you have any questions, talk to me, or bring it up in the Orange Horsemen Forum.

Everyone Else
Many here will be happy to hear that signatures are coming back. They're a great deal of fun when they don't become a huge distraction, and I'm going to enjoy them for the most part. The problem before was that the board grew so large that it became hard to do quality control on them, and the result was some pretty ridiculous stuff. Sometimes you'd see one sentance posts with a signature that filled up the entire page. Other times, it would turn into a boundry pushing smut tag that would fill my inbox with complaints. People just didn't seem to want to set boundaries on themselves like everybody had when we were a smaller community. Growing pains are bound to happen, and I'm sure this site hasn't seen the last of them.

So here is the deal, by now you've read the consequences for breaking the rules, so let's get into the specifics of what those rules are. They're simple:

Rule #1: If your signature does not fall within one of the two boxes below, you will lose signature privledges. This stands for both text and images.

Rule #2: When you submit a borderline signature, you are taking a gamble. If your signature crosses the line of decency that any two moderators agree on, you will lose your signature privledges. Thus, It is your fault if you lose signature privledges. To understand where the line is drawn, ask yourself "is someone's uptight boss going to fire an OManer if he saw this on the screen?" That's the vicinity that the line is drawn.

Two simple rules. Black and white. Cut and dried.

All text and all images must fall within the following two images, that is THE ENTIRE SIGNATURE MUST FIT in the following two boxes: </STRONG>

http://www.orangemane.com/BB/attachment.php?attachmentid=13980&stc=1&d=1134252900


Please visit our Photoshop Forum (http://www.orangemane.com/BB/forumdisplay.php?f=40) if you need help getting your signature within the standard. There you will find a thread entitled The "Please Help Me With My Signature" Thread (http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showthread.php?p=877324#post877324). You will get the help you need there.


This rule goes in effect on Thursday, December 15.

Signatures have been turned on.

DomCasual
12-10-2005, 04:05 PM
Cool, I guess. I like the size limitations.

There are two other things that I'd like to throw out there:

1) What can we do to get more smilies? I have seen other boards that have some great smilies, and lots of them. There are obviously thousands flopping around the Internet, and we have people here that could easily make them. Is it a pain to get them uploaded with the others?

2) I have seen this cool feature on other boards that I think we ought to consider. It's sort of like eBay's feedback system. It basically gives other board members the opportunity to express opinions as to whose posts they like and don't like. Each person is given a numerical score that accumulates as others leave their feedback regarding good and bad posts. It seems like it could really be a helpful thing around here.

What do you think?

Taco John
12-10-2005, 04:05 PM
That's why I'm waiting until December 15 to enforce. That should give everybody enough time to get within the limits.

That's terrible. You should see a doctor about that. I heard that if you don't eat anything for awhile, then hold a piece of salami in front of your mouth, it will jump out and try and get it - which allows you to pull it the rest of the way out. That might be an urban legend, though.

Okay, so do they show up on every post you've ever done, or just the new ones posted after you upload your signature. I uploaded mine, so if it's not visible, then I did something wrong.

So this is basically a test. Move along - nothing to see here.

I can't believe nobody pointed out what a dumbass I was for this. I tried to make it sound so innocent!

I would like more damn smilies, though. Taco, is this a possibility, or should I just let my dreams be dashed?

DomCasual is asking for more smilies. I think it's a great idea. It reminded me of those 2 mullet smilies I had on hand.......from the result of someone here saying (a long time ago) "too bad we don't have a smiley with a mullet".

So, I scoured the internet and came up with those 2 a while back - and the rest is history!

We also gotta get that Gus one to slam his head again. :gus:

Dude, looking at your signature made me have a seizure. There's just a lot of stuff going on there.

I am afraid, however, that I am going to have to report you to a moderator regarding the size of your signature. Sorry, I hate to do it. But they're not bad people. Maybe they'll work with you!

Everything except the anti raiders smilies... If you go over 300 wide, you can only go 100 tall for the total sig. The entire thing has to fit in one box, or the other.

Then ignore the political ones. Football only would make the board boring. Sports only would still suck, but would be acceptable if we're going to go that route.

I disabled PM's a long time ago because of the hate mail, death threats, etc., I was getting from the "family values" contingent.

Well - typically, when a person prefaces a question or comment with "not trying to be glib here," it means that glibness is forthcoming. If the intention was to avoid being glib, the question/comment would probably not be asked/made to begin with.

But no, I don't have epilepsy - thanks for the concern. You have to admit that you have a lot going on in your avatar.

"Usually?"

In your experience, perhaps.


If the intention was to avoid being glib, the question/comment would probably not be asked/made to begin with.

Not at all. The question was legit and was intended to make sense of your complaints about my avatar.

You have to admit that you have a lot going on in your avatar.

And, for you, "a lot going on" has a negative connotation in this instance, e.g., makes your "head explode," etc.

I find it puzzling that you are the only person here who has expressed this sentiment, (most others have given the thumbs up) hence my question about epilepsy.

I'm just saying, because I thought it might be helpful.

"Helpful" meaning "I should concern myself with what DomCasual finds aesthetically pleasing before I conceive of my next avatar?"

No offense, but I don't think it's gonna happen.

You seem to enjoy busting people chops and then feigning surprise when they respond to you. Anger is the appropriate response when someone steps on your d_ck. Learning to use your anger to stand up for yourself when appropriate will help you to live longer as well.

I told you that threatening to boot me out of a thread just because you disagreed with the political views expressed in my sig was an abuse of your power as a mod.

That's not "whining" - it's called "holding you accountable."

Ed: I just read the verbally abusive, name-calling, expletive-laced rep comment you left for me. How can someone like you be a moderator here? I don't get it.

Did I miss Alec's getting appointed to the prestigious position of moderator?

LABF, I have no history with you. Thus, I can honestly say I have no bias for or against you. That being said, you do come across as being strangely angry and sensitive.

I don't hang out in the politics forum, so there may be some history of which I am not aware. But good lord, this is a football forum. People poke fun at each other all the time. Get over it!

Am I wrong on that account?

He has been thretening to delete my posts because he doesn't like my sig.

I thought only mods could delete posts.

BTW, are the following rep comments an example of the sort of temperament you look for in a mod?

You really are the biggest dip**** on the face of Earth aren't you? Go suck Osama's dick some more.

Eat ****. I dont carea bout your politics. I dont want to see ANY politics in sigs. Post in the photoshop forum again with it and I will delete your post(s). Cry to TJ about it some more b****, it aint gonna help.

If that's the case, then why is it that your right-thinking buddies go crying to the mods everytime I look cross-eyed at them, whereas I've never once complained to the mods about anything - despite much verbal abuse, name-calling, death threats, etc, from these same individuals?

A quick recap of what just happened here:

1) This was a thread about signatures.

2) I asked for clarification re: my sig.

3) TJ and Pezman answered.

4) The usual right-wing trolls proceded to hijack the thread and turn it into a flame war.

I think that just about covers it.

Why don't you post your death threats? I'd love to see them. You bring them up as if they are some sort of badge of honor.

This is what I am guessing. You act like a pompous ass - you seem to be good at that. Someone responds with a profanity-laced PM. It goes back and forth for awhile, and somewhere along the way, someone writes that you should have your ass kicked. That is not a death threat. It is a comment made by some pimpy-faced kid from his parents' basement.

And your beef with me was over a stupid comment I made about your avatar. You have no idea which way I lean politically. Your anger apparently caused you to forget that.

Why don't you post your death threats?

If you'd been paying attention, you'd have noticed where I said they were PMs and that I disabled PM.


I'd love to see them.

I have no doubt that you'd be waiting for them with a bottle of Jergens and a big box of Kleenex.


You bring them up as if they are some sort of badge of honor.

Um, actually, I brought them up because someone wanted to know why I didn't have PMs enabled.

Another lapse in attention and/or reading comprehension on your part.

This is what I am guessing. You act like a pompous ass - you seem to be good at that. Someone responds with a profanity-laced PM. It goes back and forth for awhile, and somewhere along the way, someone writes that you should have your ass kicked. That is not a death threat.

Strike three for Miss Cleo.

About time to apply some Windex to your crystal ball, I'd say.

And your beef with me was over a stupid comment I made about your avatar.

"Beef" with you?

You were the one who kept busting my chops about the avatar - and then you acted surprised and indignant when I finally responded to you.

I am a drama queen, so in spite of said issues with my signature being nothing more than a simple misunderstanding - a misunderstanding for which an apology was given - I started spouting things about death threats and how mistreated I am.

More accurately:

"Hi, my name is DomCasual, and I'm a troll who likes to hijack discussions about which I don't have the requisite facts or history and to turn them into flame wars so as to have sufficient stroke fodder for an evening."
