Can someone help me out, I'm trying to find a way to disable the vewing of forum signatures?

Because some of the new ones that are around are **** ridiculous.

Back in the day it used to be common curtsey to have them about 150-200 pixels high.

Some you guys are having are taking the entire screen up on my laptop.

    These are pretty annoying.  That is all.

    Oh, hai there ;)

    My sig was always like this on the old forums, minus the Vega picture, for a while I think mine was the loudest.

    that makes the entire web page smaller . . 

    adblock helps some, but usually it's controlled by the forum to stop silly pictures

    I wouldn't add that image to your sigs though. That will not get things changed.

    Sigs are scheduled to be looked at in the future, the possibility of hiding them will be part of that. BUT this is a long way off at the moment as there are other more important things that need addressing on the forums first.

    I think I know the platform you are using.

    Guessing VanillaForums + Zendesk?

    It's a simple on-off switch.

    Step 1: Install add block
    Step 2: right click on offending picture
    Step 3: click "Addblock Plus: Block Image"
    Step 4: add a filter
    Step 5: profit

    that would disable them totally, which is something we don't want to do at this time.

    try this

    http://vanillaforums.org/addon/signatures-plugin

    Sounds perfect

    This plugin allows users to attach their own signatures to their posts.

    Users can also opt to disable signatures for themselves if they prefer not to see this feature. A third option allows for the selective removal of images from signatures, leaving only the text.

    it will be passed on, but there are more important features that need to be looked at first.

    Not at the moment, it is on the roadmap though.
