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.

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™."

And Abraham said, 'I can't hear you, you'll have to speak into the microphone.'
And God said, 'Oh, I'm sorry, is this better? Check, check, check. Jerry, pull the high end out, I'm still getting some hiss back here.'"

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.

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

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.

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.
