Picture Signatures

Chilly, Would you consider placing a limit on the size of the pictures some people use as a signature. I appreciate them but I and probably many others are restricted to dial up access and if a person has a picture imbedded in their posts as part of there signatures it adds a TREMENDOUS time to downloading of the page....it is one thing if it is a picture on the subject matter but as part of the signature it has to be downloaded for every post they make within the thread...I.e. (and this is not to disparage or criticise the owners at all because I am sure many of them don't even realize the impact it has...the below example just illustrates the situation well)
466bbfox GM picture is 94.99k which has to be downloaded 4 times
PatFromJersey Double picture signature is only 10.88k but still adds up

Again I am not picking on them just using this to illustrate the situation. There already is a picture for the author. I would go to dsl/satellite if I could but most of my browsing is done from the boat which is in an area that has no highspeed available unless I do direct satellite at an "intake manifold" a month cost. It just occurred to me that there might be a text only mode which I have not discovered yet but then I would have to go to the other mode to see the subject matter pictures anyway. Or maybe I am the ONLY one who is so restricted and you shouldn't consider changing for one person... Anyway give it a thought and if you or anyone else can suggest a viable workaround I would appreciate it. Alan

I think there might be a way for you to turn off the the pics you see in the signatures in your browser settings, but i'm not sure. Hopefuly someone with more 'puter brains than me will chime in. Either way you get a bump TTT.

My v6z24.com forum has a 500 x 150 limit on sig pics, which I find reasonable.

Also... when people are posting pics in a post... it's usually customary to go "56K No Way" or "56K go home" or something else amusing along those lines, as a warning.
