Why do they only show 1 sig per person per thread now?
It's to make busy threads easier to read and to reduce server load.
Moving to suggestion box and feedback
Oops sorry, I didnt see the feedback sub-forum, thanks for moving.
But c'mon server load? lol. Carl's avatar stresses the server about as much as 50 signatures lol.
Also, if you want to make the site easier to read, look into getting it professionally designed with less giant vbulliten graphics everywhere.
^Just some thoughts, not intended in anyway to be harassing.
Signatures clutter up the flow of a thread and I would consider avatars more "useful" in general. When you remove a few database calls on each pageview and multiply that by thousands of pageviews each hour... yes, it does provide incremental benefits for the server which in the end helps on page load times.
The idea for all of this is to maximize user experience. If you think the graphics are horrendous, by all means feel free to donate your expertise and make us some replacements! We haven't gotten too many complaints but if you want to point specific things out, we're listening.
I already made a bunch of replacements, what else can I do? if I thought you guys would use it I would make all news graphics for you.
Hey Rob, sorry if that came off as a bit brash, please know I love AF, just not the graphics
I actually would be glad to throw in some tips/logos/ideas/whatever but I was also hoping to talk to you about helping out with the apps section.
Possibly a barter scenario but will take it to PMs/email.
why would this ease server load?
aren't the signatures only fetched once per user per page load?
if not, why not?
We like it better this way.
