I voted no because sigs with images can be very distracting and can make it hard to find posts. I think the avatar is enough customizability.

They could be ok if the size was kept very small, but then, what's the point of it?

Another idea is to only have signatures activate when the post is of certain length. I think that could be of benefit now. Then you don't have a two line post with a three line signature, and it's easier to find the longer, more explanatory posts.

I think it would be an either/or type of thing. Either you could have multiple lines of text listing your equipment, such as you have, or you could be more creative and have an image signature. I don't think there would be any less of a point to it than everyone listing what ping pong paddle he or she uses.

In all honesty, the lack of images can make the forum appear somewhat barren at times.

Decent points. But images attract the eye more than words, and are therefore much more distracting. Two images outside of each post would draw attention more than the words in the post itself unless it was a long post.

The either/or idea I think would be the best route IF we really wanted images.

Happy Holidays 'round the world!

not that it matters much, since the vocal majority is all for no more images, but I did vote for images in the signature.

I mindlessly thought well hey why not. But since I have read everyones' well made points, I also have to agree that I would vote for no images in the signature. Especially since I often browse ooak at work and the less images the better ;)

Not sure what the ramifications of being able to change your vote in a poll would be, but in the situation it would be nice to have.
