So why the signature?
Mine was spawned in a flood of loch and Elliot Smith music, how did yours come into the world?

Due to my absurdly nonstop posting when I first joined, I decided something akin to a 180º turn away from that approach would be better. I keep the signature around to remind me at all times when I think I should post to actually consider if it adds anything worthwhile or interesting. It's been somewhat effective, though not as much as I would like. The quote is just something humorous I picked up from a spambot raid.

One is a link to a cool YTMND I made based off the Moskau Dance/song.

The other is a link to a blog I help write gaming articles for.

It's also far too long. Put it in your blog and just put a link in your sig, please.

You mistake lack of complaint for lack of caring - signatures generally aren't a big deal until you brought it up.

I didn't want to take another thread off-topic, or start my own topic.

If only we had some machine that kept track of CLIQUE signatures. Boretower3 exists now, so it's possible. But let's take a look at some of the shit I've had in the past (a nice walk down memory lane):

During the time when tons of kids had USERBARS:





Promoting my Marathon 4 Plot:


Moving beyond USERBARS:


Who could 4GET this:


Back when I lurked in the primordial darkness of Pfhorums v1 as THE PHANTOM:


The best one is yet to come; I hit the per-post image limit.

Awesome:



My present signature began as a single Fat Sam and slowly multiplied to ten. That's how I found out about the ten-image limit for signatures. Then I made each Fat Sam twice as big. Who knows if they'll keep growing.

I've been wondering something since maybe spring 2008: Why do you still have the link to Shadow's home page? That page hasn't changed since 2007. Keeping a link to a dead news/update/etc. site makes the scenario look equally dead. If you don't care how little people know of the up-to-date progress information, why is that link still there? Or, conversely, if you do care, why not update the site?

It was my new years resolution... I got uh... sidetracked. Winter 1.2 is also in "progress", but I havent updating anything either. The problem about me posting updates is that I'm generally incapable of posting anything new or cool looking, I need the graphics from CryoS first :P

Also, the GET OFF MY PHONE line is quoting Glenn Beck on his interesting philosophy on healthcare, see it on The Young Turks:

My signature consists of two distinct parts. The first part is a quote of the best post ever made on the Pfhorums. The second part is an obscure, humorous reference related to irons' blog.
