I'm just interested to see what people think of the animated gifs that are used as sigs by a couple of members. I agree that both of them are very cool vids but do we really need to see them in every thread that you guys post in? I just loaded the 'hornets yellow unis' thread and after 2.4Mb of loading it was finally done only for me to realise that the hornets uniform was a link, the image wasn't actually in the thread. But the two animated gifs took up over half the download size for the entire page.
As forums go, PacersDigest members like big avatars and sigs, which I know some people disable images so it loads faster. I leave them on because i like to see the images and it doesn't load that slowly on DSL. But when the load time changes from 2secs to 20secs just because of animated gifs i've seen 100 times before, it prompts me to make a thread like this.
