Can we try PM notification popups again now that the fora has been upgraded?

    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.
