I am posting this on behalf of an EBHawk Member. They wish to prohibit the use of animated pictures for User signatures. To minimize on confusion, loopholes, or exceptions, this will extend to all types of animated pictures.

As a precaution, please note that any dramatic or obvious changes to a User's signature, during or following the results of the Poll, will be treated as a violation of the Forum Policies; specifically, that of Trolling, Flame-baiting, or spam.
Yes, prohibit animated signatures

when you say "any obvious changes to a signature" you're clearly excusing the fact that we'll have to change away from animated signatures whenever this poll closes right?

for the purposes of discussion; I mean there's already a size limit and there's a guide on how to block whatever you aren't comfortable viewing for whatever reason. do we need to police further the content of people's signatures

I'm pretty sure Vivek meant situations like in the last suggestion thread where some people (myself included) expressed a personal dislike for animated signatures, and then a bunch of other people mysteriously added them after participating in the thread. :)

What I am saying is that no matter what the Poll results are, if it looks like Trolling, Spamming, or Flame-baiting, we'll issue warnings accordingly. It will be case by case.

I voted to prohibit animated signatures, primarily because when I am away from my computer and have to use my phone to check EBHawk, my browser often slows down or crashes whenever I attempt to access a thread with any animated signatures or GIFs. I also don't personally see why a signature like that is necessary, as it doesn't really offer any benefits. The same creativity can be expressed in an unobtrusive way, at least from my perspective. I don't mean any disrespect to anyone, but this is just something that has hampered my experience with the website.

Im pretty sure this entire thread is just retarded censorship and that this entire website has gotten out of control with a few specific people pushing their own personal preferences onto everyone. This has gotten out of hand to be honest I'm very close to joining the large number of people who are already of the opinion that this site is a waste of time and just leaving it becuase of this crap. Where is this shit going to end? Are we going to start censoring peoples RP content too because someone doesn't like it? We already have people who think we should. Maybe I want to post a suggestion poll that I think everyone should have to type their posts in spanish because english is distracting to read?

People need to just get over their fucking selves and stop thinkign they are the center of the fucking universe and coming up with dumb fucking polls like this.

Then disable signatures when you're browsing on your phone... penalizing other people because you're too lazy to do that is rediculous. Just because YOU dont see a reason to have an animated signature that means no one else can have a reason to? Get off your fucking high horse

It IS censorship, its telling people what they can and cant have by supressing things that some people find offensive or annoying. Its forcing other peopel to conform to the the preferences of other people.
