Have you ever been on a site with HUGE signatures? It's fucking terrible.
agreed if they're like 600 by 600 px, but i think the height limit could be increased... its somewhat limiting- but it doesn't bother me enough to actually complain about it.
maybe 110 X 500? or similar?

Locker room sounds like a good idea to me--but make it free. It will (hopefully) clean up the Off Topic board. I really enjoy the banter, flaming, sarcasm that goes on here, but I can certainly understand that it offends many people. Create a Locker Room, or Rec Room, or Mosh Pit or whatever you want to call it, hang up a "put on your thick skin and check your humility at the door" sign on it and remove all the tripe that's posted in Off Topic.

My couple cents...

I don't like the idea, the aim of this website is to further Saabing, not further useless bullshit.

I would also like to add I may impliment some social reforms in the OT section on a 2 month trial basis.

On a diff note, I have pmed 420am in regards to setting up a MS T5 and T7 suite section for the site. Since most of those programs bridge 2 different car models. This is an example of something consctructive for the site, not destructive.

I think you missed the point. Unless you ban everyone with a sense of humor, things are going to get out of hand now and then as it does with any group of people with a shared interest. Instead of having to ban people, relegate them to an area of the site that they paid for so they can get their yayas out without having to piss off the grownups.

Simply put, it's a car forum. If you want to fuck around, and be an asshat, head to an O/T specific forum.

The off-topic area here is just fine with me, as long as it does not take a personal turn, and that's just what happened last week. People seem to have issues realizing that.

There is no need to accommodate useless members, simply so they can get their "ya-yas" out.


I do want people to have fun on here, I really do. This is still the same site, with a few less people.

Not a big deal.

But sexual innuendo in a cat pic thread is OK now, even though others have been banned for that before?

I'm out of touch with this, but ..................That last paragraph is a great idea.

Ha, I knew someone was going to say that.


You are a smart guy, figure out the difference between myself and the former member that posted comments about catfeet.


I'm so sick of this crap.

I will say it again, for the last time: If you don't like it, I invite you to leave.

Sense of humor is fine, but people need to know where it needs to end. And alot of people don't. We have an OT section that should be sufficient. I have a sense of humor, Look at my "Immo Award" comment in the carlisle thread. Taking that little joke, making a thread about it, making sigs about it, or taking it to 3 pages in an otherwise on topic thread. That is going to far.

If somebody needs to be "relegated to an area to not piss people off" They don't need to be here. End of story.

Also, this is one of the funniest threads I've read in a long time:

https://www.saablink.net/forum/showthread.php?p=574698

Amazingly, it has nothing to do with whether a member can fit himself into a clothes dryer or whether five guys in a cabin for a weekend is going to be epic. Saabeh is just very clever in this thread (as he was in the "visiting the Alps" thread) and it also happens to be about Saabs. Win-win, in my book.

Does every thread need to be 100 percent useful? No. But I know I got tired of digging through a bunch of dreck to get to what I really wanted.

It's kind of why they have jewelry stores in malls instead of manure pits. Is the ring any different? No. But what you have to go through to get to it is.

It's easy to just not click on certain threads or to ignore users if you so choose. I guess it just seems like a wiser option than banning people.

That method hasn't worked out.

So the users here really have a difficult time selectively reading things? Or do they just yearn for information to the point that they'll click on a thread titled "I puked in a Walmart today- with pics!" expecting some megasquirt discussion?
