    I dislike that there is no option for different fonts on the entire MacRumours pages ( like everything Times New Roman).

    Yes, but for the whole forum (posts, user names, text everywhere on the site, etc). Font options would be nice.

    ummm, isn't there a way , at least in IE, to change the font a page appears in?

    The :apple: icon. Sorry is it just me or does anyone else HATE it when members (especially newbies) put :apple:s everywhere they can just because they can? Or how about the signatures that have things like: :apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple: in them?
    Or the ones that put the :apple: in front of everything like :apple:iPod :apple:Macbook Pro :apple:Mac Pro :apple:Macbook :apple:iMac. Wasn't it added for the :apple:TV?! Yet I almost never see it used for this....

    I suppose it wouldn't be so bad if it were level with the rest of text, but I still dislike it.

    It's probably just me.

    I agree completely. I can't stand the thing. There's a limit to ten smilies per post, and I think that while the limit should remain, the :apple: logo should be limited to one per post.

    ZOMG WELL DONE STEVE!!!!!!!! really annoys me too.

    I could go on.... ;)

    Maybe MacRumours admins should remove the Apple icon if it is over-used?

    I'm glad someone agrees. :)

    That bit about the Steve thing also annoys me a bit too.

    Signatures with a text size bigger than 1.

    Signatures with annoying colors.

    Signatures with your toys listed, I mean, give us a break.

    Teenage angst posts except form one certain member.

    The over use of "epic _____".

    The over use of the :apple: symbol, especially in signatures.

    People who list too many gripes.

    OOooh, in addition to agreeing with all the above, not following the signature rules clearly marked ABOVE the signature box:



    :(

    Sorry Dawg, but people who sign their posts annoy me. :eek: Don't get me wrong I value your input and you always have something constructive to say. But it has been growing on me a bit so who knows, maybe I'll learn to love it. ;)
    It's probably just the fact that I know how much it would annoy me to type that after every post.

    I also dislike that you can not delete your own post if you wanted to.

    Yes! Especially when things happen like a quote is changed etc or the person you're referring to changes their post. This feature would be nice.

    1) the new marketplace rules - I still think everyone should be able to view, and only starting a thread should be limited

    2) thread titles like "Help! What should I do?" - I always want to say, "How about learn to write an informative title?"

    3) any use of OMG or FTW - no reason, they just bug me

    Maybe. Or maybe I've hacked in to the database.

    Damn, foiled again. :eek:

    Is black/bold an annoying colour (which is not really a colour but oh well)?

    No, but bold is unnecessary. Why use your signature to draw attention away from your post?


    You wouldn't sign a letter with a heavier marker pen than you wrote the body of the letter with, would you? Unlikely, because it would draw the eye elsewhere.

    overzealous forum police who are not mods...

    i wish that some threads wouldnt get wastelanded so easily

    also hate toys in signatures or people always complaining when a young person has nice things. i always hear comments like "you dont deserve or pay for it while i had to pay for it and walk to school in the snow uphill both ways" lol

    i do love forum spy though. greatest tool for me on these forums bar none!

    Definitely. Including those who try to answer for the mods at every available opportunity. You're trying too hard. It's embarrassing. The mods know you're here.

    My own: people who title or start posts "So, I was...". It sounds like a frickin' stand-up comic routine.
