Sigs Cleaning Up Spree
Posted 12 March 2005 - 10:41 AM
But i know you admins and mods don't wanna go through and do it all, so i have some ideas.
1) Make some kind of script of the server that will go through and scan for sigs that disobey the rules, by searching how many lines of text, image size (or number of images)
2) Put out a notice (maybe a PM) to all users to copy what they want to somewhere on their comp, and have all sigs wiped and every1 must start again (that probably sounds really stupid but it might work)
3) Make sigs have to be approved my mods (maybe next site upgrade?). Everytime some1 wants to change their sig, a mod will be alerted and have to approve it. Wouldn't be a long process if u think of it. They just have to click yes or no after looking at it. It'd save time in the long run.
3 and 2 would go together well.
But i know they're probably all stupid ideas so im not really expecting any good reponses

There are over 200,000 members, there is absolutely no way that a dozen mods can stay on top of everyones sigs, all the time. As for an automated system, that decision would have to come from an admin, but I'm pretty sure it wont happen.

Sigs and avatars are great. They let you customize your posts in a way that matches your personality. If you don’t like them just turn them off and stop bitchin like a senior at a check-out line.
If I wanted to talk on some boring, antiquated forum, with mods from hell I'd got to gamespy. The whole spirit of the Scene is creativity, and sig/avatars add to the fun and expression of ourselves.

sigs and stuff would be in no question if people actually obeyed the rules of common sense.... and well actually READ the rules.

I have a larger sig than some.. but even I don't view them.. and only turn on view sigs when requested.
report abusive sigs.. (don't bother if they are mods, head mods, or admin as they got exceptions)
A blanket automated sig remover/cleaner whatever.. something to think about.

I would think that one possible way to deal with the sigs would be to plan and alert everyone, that one day all the sigs will be wiped out. then institute a script that only runs when you change your sig. so if it sees a .gif in the sig it gets rejected or if it see more than one img tag etc. that way it will get rejected right from the get go.
my .02... I'm sure whatever solution you guys come up with (if any) will be a good one.

Thats exactly what i was thinking. You can't just ban gifs though, cos theres staic and animated ones, theres nothing wrong with static gifs, but yeah it would be difficult to tell the difference. Anway it'd be a good idea
