    Am I the only one here that finds these scrolling Signatures freaking annoying?

    90% of the time I'm using my Notebook and when scrolling up or down the page it stops about four or five times to scroll through the damn signatures... I always use the scroll feature of the mouse pad rather than the scroll bars on the page because, it's just easier and this is the major complaint I have on this message board.

    HAHAHAHA that is so gimp of a post.

    I only use my notebook and I can say it is one of my least fav things here. Really would like to see something done.

    I posted something about this a while ago but all that was said was "put up with it" or "only scroll on the right of the page".

    I can block some with adblock

    The one that always works is uncheck "SHOW SIGNATURES" in your User CP.

    I was going to say something to that effect.. no big deal for me, though. I click the wheel down, and move the cursor under to scroll down and read posts as I go along. Since I click outside of sigs, no problem there.

    That's funny, you must have a really low screen resolution, I NEVER see my sig scroll.

    Any better?

    Maybe he's got 1600x1200 resolution and turns the font size up to compensate. That can cause it to overflow the sig box.

    Looks like Joe did a simple fix of setting overflow:hidden instead of auto. Probably worth mentioning that sigs over a certain size will now be truncated, so those out there with 400 pixel high pictures of their bike in their signature will now find them cut off at about the top tube.

    Well, I guess it would be hard to ride a bike that only has a seat and half a handlebar.

    Joe "fixed" something, which in my opinion made things worse.

    I think I like it better now. Before I actually did get stuck on some scrolling sigs and can attest to its annoyance.
