    Big signatures

    We've received an increasing number of complaints about the growing number of signatures that are long and use excessive size. As explained to me the former is a major issue for the visually impaired using screen readers. Others feel excessive signatures clutter the forum and hinder readability.

    I'm respectfully asking anyone with a large/long signature to scale it down.

    Thanks for understanding,
    -Jeremy

    Can I get some opinion on mine please? Seems to me that we are just looking for things to complain about.

    To each his own....I guessing does apply here?

    Just my $.02, I'm surprised at times what irritates some people.

    Edit: the above original reply from me sounds harsh looking at again today.

    However I don't want signature, info, links to ever go away. Font size means nothing to me. If I need to change some mods...please PM me.

    Carry on everyone.

    People do know they can shut signatures off, right?

    Go to Your Profile, Settings, General Settings, scroll down until you see this:

    Thread Display Options
    Visible Post Elements:
    Show Signatures
    Show Avatars
    Show Images (including attached images and images in [IMG] code)
    You have the option to show or hide various elements of messages, which may be of use to users on slow internet connections, or who want to remove extraneous clutter from posts.
    Uncheck "Show signatures"

    Problem solved.

    Seems like the easiest solution to me.

    Wouldn't be the HF way.

    How about only the ones people find offensive? You could even start a thread to discuss who's heads should roll.

    Easy enough for most of us but I'm more concerned about those with visual impairments. See the video below.

    The HF way is to assume no offense is intended.
