Hey Cereal, I don't have a slowdown problem with it but I'm on a fast dsl line. It is 239K. I've run it through a couple of optimization processes to get the size down. No Go. It was built as small as it can get.

Any One Else! If my banner causes slowdowns, by all mean, let me know & I'll change it to a non-animated banner. :D

I hope this is like the poll's thing. If everyone has a picture for their sig, they will all have to be loaded, and things will really slow down. Look at this page right now. I think it looks rediculous. And I have been called [i]"The Gifmeister"[/i]. Everyone here knows that I like to post funny pictures, but I don't want to look at these on [b] EVERY SINGLE POST[/b]. ROB, PLEASE TURN THIS FUNCTION OFF!!!! End of rant. I love you guys :D

I too, am running in the dialup world @ 56K, but I hadn't noticed a significant slowdown of the page loading. OTOH, I can see how it might just get out of hand if everyone started using large images or animated GIF's. I've been using the same "signature" since I came here over a year ago, and only added the GIF (thanks KHAN!) a few months back... I used copy / paste to add it to each post. But the size of the GIF is very small. The new feature allows me to post without the extra step, which is nice. I think it comes down to being considerate of each other. If we keep the images reasonably small, I don't think it should be a problem. Soundcrafter and Dak's images seem very reasonable to me...
