Heh, your mention of ads reminded me... there's another option for you image haters out there. :)

I use adblock for chrome.  It does a pretty good job of suppressing annoyances, and you can add your own rules via regular expressions.  So, if you REALLY hate seeing images in the middle of posts on THIS forum, just make yourself a rule to block only images within the posts themselves.

I haven't looked, but I bet SMF adds HTML comments to make it easy to spot sections of posts, and it probably also uses class tags on all the tables and whatnot.

So, just a thought.

Hey guys,

For now, we're just going to implement a 650px x 85px size limit and no animation for sigs, and no limits on images in posts (so as not to detract from their usefulness in assisting with instruction/troubleshooting). Normal rules on no obscene/illegal pictures will still apply, as will not using sigs, avatars, or images to flame or troll. If people abuse this, we'll revisit it.

Icculus is working to implement this from the technical side, and it appears to be working for at least some browsers right now.

Regards,
Kuros

Looks good (at least from my own signature's viewpoint)!
