And maybe enable image tags in sigs so I can put this:

in my sig.

No, not images in sigs. It'll make each page loading up that much longer.

We used to have way way off in the past, but that option's no longer available. :)

You can turn off image tags in sigs you know.

Yes, and I won't be able to see ALL image attachments. Incl those in the attachments etc which I want to view. :rolleyes:

Unless I turned off the sigs, and then I can't see sigs. There're some interesting txt sigs too.

And who's going to police all these sig images? The mods already have problems trying to keep everyone's sigs to 5 lines. Imagine adding an image to that mixture. :rolleyes:

Bah, PH has never been one to pay that much attention to grammar. Or spelling, I notice. :p

I support the suggestion to have PM notification popups again. It's much more convenient than the current system! :)

Well, I can turn it on again. But don't blame me if those popups crash the forum. ;)

Stability is of paramount importance. Most people may not remember about 10 months ago when that last BBS was causing such problems (an extreme example, I know).

So if popups=instability, the PM popup notifications get the permanent boot. That's my vote.
:cool:

Is there a way so that that hack/mod only checks every 4 times or 10 times that you change pages? That would reduce the strain considerably on the server.
