Yeah, I fixed that. I figure something like that should be open to modification; people are allowed to change their avatars and signatures, after all.

Um, no, only moderators and up should be allowed to change that. Changed it back.
I fail to see the logic here.

Perhaps because it does not exist.

I know all about Deus logic, thankyouverymuch.
Al teast that way we moderators can add notes to people, notes that may be crucial for the optimal experience of others.

For instance, if someone is fat and others want to laugh at him, he shouldn't be able to change his title from "mr. 300 kg"

I used this newfound power of title-choosing while it's still here. I have no problem with you changing it, though.

On "what everyone else does": every forum I've ever had a membership on has allowed members to edit their own titles.

As for warnings, well, there's those special ranks for that. Members can't change 'em.

Can you change my name's color, or is that just for specific ranks?

All the more workload for you, then, going about trying to think up titles more interesting than "lolnub".

Black with white text won (or is winning, I don't know if the poll is over), but the Admins didn't authorize the poll and therefore place no stock in it.

Do you think it's possible to put a limit on signature size? Some people *cough*Wangster*cough* have a signature that's bigger that most of their posts, and it's unappreciated and unsightly.

Agreed. A signature should only be a couple of words, as common curtesy dictates.

Unfortunately this is a free forum and I don't think we can do that. But I can do that manually Wink

Understandable. But if you do impose a limit manually, that'd be super-fine.

Don't think it's doable. Could be, but I haven't tried.

Besides, you can always choose (in the "Options" box below the editor) to not attach your sig.

I don't think anyone had one. Even if they did, they'd still load quickly; as an example, see the side of this post.

See that one there? The "Beta" tag under it is three times larger. Those stupid flash ads are much more likely to slow things down.

Is there a way to choose which subtopics will show up on the 'NEW' icon to the left of a topic? For example, the never-ending story topic is not one that I care to be informed on for each new post. This way, I'll only click on a topic to choose a subtopic if the newest post is one that interests me.

It's too late to do it now, but I think that we should do a Secret Santa thing here next year. Of course, only for the most active and esteemed members, but we don't have to be so strict on letting people into it.
