Forum sig marquee [SUGGESTION]

Postby Aeisonia » Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:08 am

So I was thinking that it would be cool to have a marquee for sig purposes on the forums, to do better new headlines and stuff.

If you can’t implement it, it’s cool. Just a suggestion.

Like a moving marquee?

Yeah I think the last thing the site staff want is for players to be able to have ANYTHING moving and distracting in their signature.

Hell, speaking for me, I know that IF this was implemented I would immediately turn off all signatures on all my accounts just to not see one at all.

But isn't that already possible? I think that I've seen a few sigs here with moving "news".

Not "no", but "HELL NO!" There's a reason it was deprecated in broswers by the W3C in 2014. It's friggin' annoying. It belongs on your GeoCities or MySpace page, not anything modern.

The [pre] tag shows a box with a slider if the content is too long for one line. Personally I don't care for that in sigs either, but my opinion doesn't rule.

Sigs are for very brief information, and should not contain extraneous material like national news that shows up under EVERY FRIGGIN' POST.
