Notice LF is now sporting loading messages!
I wonder who is responsible for this? (Kudos to where it is deserved)

This is a neat feature... only problem is people with blazing internet connections (:shads3:) have hardly any time to read the messages...

I like it, but my connection is fast enough where i can just read at most, a few words if anything, before it loads the main forum page.

Agree. My connection is fast enough that I can't even get them now that I'm trying to.

I think you can get it after you edit a comment in full edit. After you click submit, you get a loading screen that says something like "thank you for submitting your comment" and at the bottom of the box it says a quote.

This "feature" was requested (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?p=2561409#post2561409) awhile back, though I felt Sun Tzu was a bit more succinct here than Dostoyevsky or Tolstoy. There's currently only a 30% chance any quote will be shown on a given redirection page.

I've added a slightly longer delay for those redirects that contain the messages.

I guess I will go against the flow of this thread. Personally I don't like it. If Iwas dial-up then I would really hate it. When I was on 56K I adblocked every signature image to lessen the load time. Even with decent broadband I still adblock all of the signature images because I don't want to waste my time/connection scrolling past them. Also if I had my way there would be no size 7 signatures.

From what I've seen, it's just text and only a few words. It shouldn't really affect anyone.

And you can turn sigs off in your profile.

"Thank you for logging in Rev7

Without a quote...

I just got a Sun Tzu message on the edit loading screen. This one was quite interesting, it was explaining on how capturing one pound of your enemies food is equal to 20 pounds of your own....

Now I'm very hungry:D

Not true, you said that turning off signatures was "Not an option for some people as there are useful links present in some peoples sigs... emphasis on some" but that you "agreed" that you didn't like signatures.

Perhaps you weren't referring to yourself, in which case my comment still applies - to whoever you were referring to as "some people". Of course, if you weren't talking about yourself I have no idea how you'd come to the conclusion that it was not "an option" for "some people".

But that has nothing to do with the "cake or eat it too" in your response... that's where I get confused... if I were asking for something here then it may have had relevance as a reply to my post, but... oh well... we drifted off topic enough methinks. ;)

Which is exactly why I don't turn them off. I like being able to click on links to mods in the signature.

Not really sure how this got on the topic of signatures. :confused:

The loading messages are only maybe 100 bytes more of bandwidth. People on dial-up from 1994 wouldn't even notice a difference.

yo, ive been thinking... whats up with sun tzu?? i mean, a couple quotes would be ok, but its only sun tzu. there should be quotes from other people from history as well.
and this is lucasforums! there should be some quip by han, a homicidal yearning from hk, maybe some quotes by lfers. (sage wisdom from rhett, etc.) d333's comment is an improvement.
