Pre-signatures are the new black. Go Eagles!

It helps that I now think of them as pre-signatures. Twice the room to spiff up each of my posts!

Or... what about aligning them to the right?

I don't think anybody's actually keeping such a list.

Sweet. I knew I selected to have it blocked from Premium members but didn't know that included mods.

In all fairness, I didn't look. I did notice it in the screen shot and wondered...

I un-bolded it. Is that a fair middle ground for the time being?

Cadillac Red Tag Event. Get Details Plus Check Out Features & Specs.

The small text is a small improvement, but it's still annoying.

Add me to the list I guess. Groucho, add me. To the list.

Find the new iPod nano, iPod touch & iPod classic. Get free shipping.

Would the align right or changing to a non-black color make it worse for SEO purposes on Google?

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

Hmm, actually I think bolded looks better to me. Regular text blends in too much to regular posts, despite the line. Bold is easier for me to skip past.

Discover the BlackBerry Bold, the sleek, bold, HSDPA network compatible smartphone

And we're back to bolded, at least in the VG forum.

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

I wouldn't mind if it was part of the blue line, along with date time and post#, but the current position does make the post box a little busy.

Can't say I'm a fan.

"I'm a fan."

Turns out I can say it. Still don't like 'em.

That's because it's a separate style. Once we get a ruling on this, I'll change that one too.

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

I think the consensus among the peanut gallery seems to be putting it in the blue bar would work best.

Non-bold made it a bit smaller, which is a step in the right direction.

Can you try it blinking every couple seconds, so it's only there half the time? Or maybe a random color each time since people have different tastes in colors and it would make more people happy?

The Bus,
I think IB-Dick is right that more text in the blue bar would intrude on white-space feelings. I did a comp real quick and it sucked.

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

So I was reading a thread today, when I was like "whoa, what the hell is this thread about?", and I, like, totally forgot. I know you have the thread title in the browser title and at the top of each response, but I was wondering if perhaps you could have it at the bottom of each, in all the ads, and perhaps in the quick reply textbox.

This way I'll never be confused.

Home to the Unspeakable Sex Acts Gallery

If everyone had avatars, there'd be more whitespace.

Re: What's with the automatic titles in posts?

Now they are less annoying, but they are still annoying. I vote for the complete elimination of them.

I just saw them and wondered, "what the hell, this is really annoying".

We've survived this long without getting lost in threads, most of us anyway. They really serve no purpose to a thread other than clutter.

Giving the user the option to turn them off would be great.

It's annoying because I now feel the need to see how many people are changing the damn things.
