    Now that we're the number 1 Mac team we need to come up with a catchy sig that will advertise the fact and intrigue people to check out the team.

    So, I'm here asking for suggestions. The sig shouldn't be more than 1 line long. Let's see what people can come up with! :)

    How about something that says we are after the pc teams next or to be #1 unix based team (are we that already, dunno?)

    I don't know that there needs to be a single format that everyone uses. That would be kind of boring..... As long as there are some details that are specifically in there (ie. team no. url etc...).

    I like the idea of all having the same line - recognition factor - the more members we convince to join the more WUs we end up with.

    Yours is fine Rower - I'll go with that...

    I think recognition is good, definately try to get everyone with the same sig.

    What I think is more important is having it on a single line. There is nothing I hate more than massive signatures, if everyone has a five line F@H sig, it's gonna be a pain.

    does it need to be catchy? everything about folding is pretty slow and uninteresting to the majority of ppl...

    i would go for plain: join the #1 [ranked] mac folding team

    or

    who's CPU cycles can u leech?

    I still think that showing how much you've contributed to the team is a good idea too, as it creates a sense of competition in the way that "number of posts" does on other forums. Non-folders may want to get in on the action, and MacRumors, and F@H in general, benefits by this.

    Good point, jimthorn.

    So, plan B is then:
    Do whatever you want, just have it in your sig, dammit! :D

    i don't really like the points in the sig idea cause im lazy :). don't want to have to change it everyday, and even though im not an extreme perfectionist, id feel funny having an outdated sig...
