lemme get this straight
 
so theres not gonna be a store which will mean no points, sig, CUSTOM TITLES ( meaning including those whom have over 100 posts) just plain old avatar and ??? wouldn't that degrade posts? Why not just enable sigs regardless of your points>? Or why not enable those features as your post count progresses?? Cause I spent alot of time here at these boards just wanting to get a sig pic.

I say it doesn't matter. I mean, you're not here because you love sig pictures. You're here because you love these boards. And whatever reasons why they choose to take them down (probably a size issue) I respect it. Though I will miss checking out the cool sig pics alot of you have.

Azrael 07-08-2003 11:12 PM

I think sigs are still going to be around. And anyone with over 1000 posts has a custom title. It's pretty much gonna be the way it was, before "The Store™."

Arreat 07-08-2003 11:15 PM

Ahh nuts, its too bad we can't convert our points to posts... hehee

so then you are saying ALL your posts were spam and rubbish because the only reason you posted is so that you could have a little picture under your posts that causes my computer to slow just a little bit on every load. :rolleyes:

To be honest, I would like to see the sig pics go. The pages would load a lot faster.

Arreat 07-08-2003 11:28 PM

well not quite I came for a smaller reason -- eheh just to see my post counts with 4 digits. Y'know its fascinating how some people are amazed by such little things. (IE ME) :D

Arreat 07-08-2003 11:31 PM

Oh well my stay was worth the while. Cause my retirement draws near -- end of summer. I don't want my grades to be far worse than what ive now.

ADMINS N' Mods you can close this thread now. I pretty much got what i needed to read.

yeah the banners slow down the loading time by a lot on a 56k connection

XERXES 07-08-2003 11:47 PM

well actually to be honest im tired of seeing 500 million matrix pictures, im trying to read a thread and you see Neo flying across the screen with the green stuff everywhere and you loose the spot you were reading and your like WTF?!?! Or you see some image that could look cool but there is just way to many layers of different random graphics in it and it just hurts your head.

Jah Warrior 07-09-2003 12:09 AM

Wahooo!!!

no more points? no more silly sig pics? no more gawdy names?

Cool!!!

I'll be able to turn my sigs back on again :D

XERXES 07-09-2003 12:17 AM

actually if you want, you can the sigs off in your userCP.

however i do agree that it's dumb to post here only to get a sig pic or whatever 'special feature' and it's equally dumb to post simply to have the most posts.

Anyone who still has a 56K connection should be drawn and quartered...

why do you say that

-=ReApEr=- 07-09-2003 04:29 AM

56k isn't that bad on these forums actually, takes a extra minute or so. :)

Nobody hates sig pics more than I do, but you can always turn them off in your User CP.

The store i believe is being taken away because certain people ahve mis-used the system. As for when It will be removed...I have no idea...But i'm thinking sometime in the near future.

The point system is being removed for several reasons.

It isn't generally accepted.
It creates a lot of spam.
It creates a hostile environment.
