Although I know the forums are being re-built, will we have the option to disable signatures and avatars again, or does the new forum software preclude that?
Mordin Solus: We need a plan to stop them.
John Shepard: We fight or we die. That's the plan.
Ashley Williams: Wow. That's the plan? Is it just me, or did Shepard have better plans before he died?
Urdnot Wrex: Silence! This is the best plan anyone, anywhere has ever had!
Garrus Vakarian: Yes! I AM SO THERE I AM THERE ALREADY!

Go to your profile.  Under "Modify profile", there's a drop-down menu.  Go to "look and Layout" and disable away!
Every time a grognard comes to realise the game can't survive purely on his dog-eared copy of the Warrior Trilogy, duct-taped CityTech boxed set and personal sense of spite and has taken a tack of mild concern for the future marketability of the game...an angel gets its wings.

Granted it does appear that the guidelines for avatars and signatures will be much more stringent than previously. Makes sense.

What's intuitive for one person is esoteric to another, I guess :P

Thanks.

The new skins when complete will also help with that -- as always there will be a image-light version that doesn't even use images for the admin/post-count area... I'm hoping to have that done by end of week next week, but no promises.

SMF2 isn't compatible skin-wise with 1.x, and I'm still learning it.

Though I do have a preview picture:

Since the main index part is done -- shame it's not at ALL compatible with the default skin. (let's just say SMF's developers and I have different opinions on what constitutes good markup). I cleaned out a lot of the harsh edges and all the 90's style beveled borders, and darkened it up a hair from the last iteration. It also cleans out the tiled background from the logo which not only looks nicer IMHO, it also knocks 20k off the file sizes.

Looks very promising.
Alas poor Photobucket. I knew him Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.

That is definitely much easier on my eyes than the way it is now.  I'm looking forward to it.

Is there a way to get the "all" option on multipage threads back?

With regards

It's back now -- another little one that doesn't crop up in testing on a blank forum.

I've got it limited to eight pages (120 posts) as more than that can monopolize too much of the server's time not letting other people "get in"...

Well, things are looking good so far.  Can hardly wait to have the proper Battletech layout again though.
