The last two weeks a lot of you have had issues with the new signature rule. Let me start by saying this rule was not my idea but I DID agree with it. Some of the other moderators who donate their time here everyday thought it might be a good idea. It was discussed and we decided to go forward with it. Keep in mind again these changes were only done to make the site what we thought would be better. An announcement was made and 90% of people complied. That was your PM. The RSS excuse does not fly with me. News is a very slow forum. There is no reason not the take the RSS feed off of it. Actually if you RSS any forum it should be news. With that said maybe the way violators were handled was not the best. But keep in mind the number of PMs we all get each day. Personal PMs and hand holding is a lot to expect from people who donate their time to a car site. I personally only changed one banner and that was Kevin's. He opted to change it back and I promptly removed all his admin rights. Personal exceptions will not be made only because like other options they are time consuming and open to biases. Smaller signature images do not take away from anything. If we truely were going for maximum ascetics we would set an image size. All sigs would be the same size. But that simply is not the case. I run 3200x1400 is not an excuse either. I run higher than that on some machines. Guess what? They have great resolution. I do not need a 14"x6" banner to be able to read you're pissed off at the people trying to keep this place running. I get the message loud and clear every day. Again for those of you whom missed it:

So with that think of this. All of you casting stones saying how bad the mods make it here, think about this. What have you done to make it better here? Donate time? Write reviews? Help with the auctions? No? You're not expected to. We just want you to follow simple rules so we can do those things.

When you put it like that, I guess it makes more sense. Sometimes it's easy to forget you guys are doing this in your spare time, too. I only had "modifications" in RSS, I didn't even know there was a news one, so now that's added. So yeah I guess that's me apologizing for being an ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.

You were not being an ass. I just didn't want anyone to have the wrong idea of whats going on here. Empowering the moderation staff as much as some despise it is necessary. Other wise we would just all sit around and talk about change instead off being the catalyst for it. Greg spearheaded this with the others and asked me my thoughts. Not being "in the trenches" as much as they were I told their word on it that it was an issue. Plans were made the the ball started. I am no so blind as not to alter plans should the need arise but I also know once you let slip the dogs of war you do not rein them back in until the job is done. There may very well be changes made in the future. Once this shakes out we will PM people warning them. But for now these are the rules. Sorry for any bruised feelings this has caused anyone,

whats the big f'in deal, at least we allow images...most forums don't even allow graphics in your sig so....quit bitchin, yeesh

this place gives back a lot more than most of you take for granted...an arcade to waste time at work, find another forum that has that, personal gallery space, e/t/c e/t/c, i mean really they ask for one little change and its like the world is ending

grow up

Man, that Chuck is a hardass!!!

I don't see what the bitching is all about myself. It's a fricking picture for god's sake, not a resume.

In other words:

Thanks for providing us a place to gather and relate to Volvo issues and topics Chuck, and thanks to all of the volunteer Moderators who help keep it running smooth. My hat is off to you guys.
