    Not to mention that they're ugly and obnoxious. There's an ugly and obnoxious filter here at MacRumors. Clearly I know how to bypass it. :p

    You need at least 500 posts, I recently found this out by reading the FAQ.

    500 posts is for an avatar is it not?

    Signature images are totally annoying. There's nothing worse IMHO than having to read a thread that has the same space-consuming signature over and over.

    Plus it's extra server load.

    The 500 post rule applies to avatars rather than signatures. I recently went over 500 posts but still cannot add an image to my signature (thankfully). Of course, I can add links to galleries of images if I like. :)

    Oops, I must have read the original post a little too fast. I stand corrected.

    Psst...he's still just in denial. :p

    I'm glad pics in sigs are verboten, they make the place look cheap.

    Many people (me included) who have used other forums, where banners or other images in signatures are allowed, are glad to get out alive. Slow page-loading and visual clutter can drive you crazy on some sites.

    Oh lordy no images in sigs...that is one of the things I love about this site. I get distracted easily, as it is I sometimes find myself staring at someones animated 'tar for minutes at a time. Images in sigs? My brain would explode. Not pretty.

    What I find annoying are quotes in sigs (i.e. using vB "

    I'm very glad MacRumors doesn't allow images in your signature... they're very very annoying.

    Images that are properly selected for their informative and aesthetic value, such as Sun Baked's dancing bananas, can be a valuable addition to the look of MacRumors. That's why we relaxed the rules, as you can see, so that SilentPanda (and nobody else) can use images in signatures. ;)

    Okay. Okay. I was too lazy to disable my normal sig and do the BS one.

    But my heart was in it! :p
