I don't really see anything wrong with them. If there were signature wars I must've missed them. I always miss the fun.

But seriously I had a good one. Took alot of thought.

Then, no sooner do I place it, and POOF!! they're gone.

coz people were using too many giffs and taking up space/memory as i recall it.... i don't know what constitutes 'too many' but that's why, unless someone remembers different.

For the record mine was "The Mud Elephant, Wading Through The Water, Leaves No Tracks" and it had no moving parts, not even a trunk.

what was yours?

I liked the cat getting on the bullett train and the dancing banana a lot, but they were avatars

This was mine before they took it off:

There's a moment when all old things become new again
But that moment might have come and gone...
From a cheerless room
In a curtained gloom,
I saw a star from heaven fall
I turned and looked again
but it was gone.


Let's put all our old ones up (from profile - edit signature - they're still there!)

Ah, I recall mine with much fondness... it was "In fourteen months I’ve only smiled once and I didn’t do it consciously"... losing it was like losing an erotically mad lover... hell, I miss my signature and the great times we had together!

Well, I think we've served our punishment and it's time for parole!!

Whataya say mods?? Can't we have another crack at it??

If we promise to behave? And eat all our veggies. And put away our gifs.

Pretty please?

I think they actually serve a useful purpose, allowing a person to reveal a little of their inner self. An expression of our individual outlook on life.

Okay, here's where we are with this. The signatures were removed for a reason. They started being trouble with people targeting others with "special" messages. So, I'm not gonna bother with asking to restore this feature. The mod. team needs one more thing to monitor like we need another whole in our heads.

Kissing up won't help.

Anyway, mine were:
