[img] tags in sig

Why aren't we allowed to use [img] in sig or [flash]?

It gives us less control over the content of the site.

The major reason why we don't allow use of the [img] code in sigs is because it has the potential to really slow down page loads depending on the image size and hosting services that people will use.



If a person is on dialup, they still have to download all of those sig images.

Ive seen a mod where it limited the size of the img in the sig, didnt seem like it would be that big of a deal.
