Theres alot of good points made in this post and i agree with many of them. Yes the search function isnt really that helpful. i have made a few threads after searching and not being able to find anything relevant where someone had posted a link to another thread within the first 2-3 posts. To address the issue about language, Most of the people here are adults or teens, almost all of us have heard anything that is being said here in regards to sex or language. that being said i feel the best way to deal with someone's language being a problem for you is to PM them and politely state your concern or to contact a mod. negative rep accomplishes nothing and neither does arguing in a thread.
With pictures in sigs, not attacking anyone here but i find roided and cacinok's sigs to be a little big. In general most people dont have very large pictures in their sigs, usually its only a large amount of text. Would it be possible to limit the amount/size of text users are able to place in their sigs, maybe to 100 characters. also would it be possible to host an image for sigs much like what is currently used for avatars to create a limit on the file/pixel size used? I honestly have no problems with most of the sigs and would fix mine by making a smaller picture if there were issues with the size.
in general, i have no problems with NBF. I say keep the forums the way they are and i just posted possible resolutions to others concerns. Like kdynamic, I came here to get info about buying my laptop and i still come around for the off topic and gaming threads becuase its a great forum. just my 2 cents, have a nice day everyone
