View Full Version : Should i make default sigs for new members?

in the past we have had problems with new members asking for sigs with very little post count and sig makers(including myself) do not want to make sigs for them b/c we dont konw if they will be active..... so i got an idea that scar had on a diff site to make default sigs for all 32 teams and a new user could use that until they could ask for a custom sig.... i just want your input if newbs deserve sigs and such.... and if these sigs are appropiate for them... scar's sigs were pretty nice

If you are up for it, it'd be an awesome idea, but it's all on if you and other sig makers want to do it.

I think its a great idea, but I wouldn't be doing all the work. It only makes the site better, and welcomes new users.

i agree... ive just gotten remarks that newbs dont deserve sigs like those

perhaps you could get other sig makers and split the teams up so you don't do all the work.

Yeah, if there's 16 sig makers, each could make two. And we'd also know who the newbies support.

I've got no problem with new members getting sigs, but it may get a little weird with a bunch of people using the same ones. Maybe it's just me, but the avatar and sig is how I recognize people alot of times, and with a bunch of people using the same ones it may get confusing. IDK though, go for it.

i see your point... since wat makes each sig great is the uniqueness, but it wont be a problem as they will be new on the site....

im gonna try to do at least 2 a day... i just fniished the raiders one

Not really a fan of this idea. Hard to tell the difference between people.

Maybe something smaller, like a "bar" or a mini sig.

07-06-2006, 05:28 PM
Thats the quality of regular sigs. They should be basic, they should EARN better sigs.

07-06-2006, 05:34 PM
I like the idea. I think it will help make new users feel welcome and stick around. It would be nice if you could advertise this on the sig threads to get a few other guys to help you out with basic team sigs.

then in their sigs, they can say sig by (and then we can make a team name) :lol: :lol:

4 is on pace to smash toonster's record. but anyway i think its a good idea but those sigs are too good for guy with 3 posts. i like the small sig idea.

stephenson86
07-06-2006, 05:38 PM
for all who say the sigs are too nice, i thihnk thats total BS and not a nice way too welcome new members,
can i have this sig.
no.
y?
because ur a n00b.
i dont see it as an effective welcome, so i think its a mint idea

jkpigskin
07-06-2006, 05:39 PM
And besides the sigs you made a too nice.

but i think that since these sigs wont be unique, that the quality wont be that great... and if a new member is really active, he will get a custom sig from a sig maker.... you can tell if a member will be active or not from the start....there are those who gradually post each day and there are people like america and 4 who post like crazy from day 1

i think its a great idea and would do it, if i had any sig making ability. what would be great would be including one post up by the rules that had all the sigs and codes and an explanation of why they are there and such.

i think its a mint idea

For those who are saying "a sig is how people are often known or recognized" that is true to an extent. But often times new users have no sig at all, so they still are similar.

You also still have your avatar to help differenciate yourself from other fans who might happen to be new and be using the same sig as you. Plus, how often do fans of the same team join at the same time? I don't think it will be much of an issue.

I think this is a great idea to get new people to stay around and be productive posters.

They look really nice too.

And no one will pass Toonster unless Keak comes back. Even he said he will never pass Toonster. You would have to be at like 50 posts a day, and thats if he doesn't post at all.

They won't. They will fade out enventually. I'm getting like 80-100 a day nowadays. It says like 12ish, but I didn't post very often last year. I was at like 2800 at the beginning of June.

The fact is, whoever gets close to Toonster, will be banned. It doesn't really matter because no one will get close though.

It was a joke, but definately something I would suggest if is happened.

Funny thing, Keak was on pace to catch Toonster by the day of the draft, and he starting posting like a quarter of what he normally did, mainly out of respect, because toonster is a god.

Just so you guys know, we're not going to get a permanent stickied thread for any of this stuff. I asked xio to sticky my avatar collection thread and he did, but he said only for a week, so I had to post them all in the sig request thread so they won't get deleted atleast. It sucks because they're just gonna get buried and lost in that thread, but I guess it'll have to do.

EDIT: Well, he just pm'd me again and said that when the sigs are done he might put everything in one thread and keep it stickied. :)
