• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.
  • Hi all. We had a couple of reports of people's signatures getting edited etc. in a bad way. You can rest assured this wasn't done by staff and nobody has compromised any of our databases.

    However, remember to keep your passwords secure. If you use similar passwords to elsewhere which has been accessed, people and even bots may be able to access your account.

    We always recommend using unique passwords, and two-factor authentication if you are able. Make sure you're as secure as possible

I don't know. I rather like flashy gifs and don't really care that much how big they are. I just jumped on the bandwagon myself. They are pretty much sppf's replacement for custom avatars. I was just pointing out a trend and noting its effects. I am not the signature police.

But yours is pretty worthy. If I weren't the ******* with the rotating sig/most of the GIFs I wanted to use weren't too big, I'd have a GIF in my sig, too.

I am confirmed for butthat.

EDIT: Wait, what? My signature... 'tis dead. How the hell am I supposed to tell if something is over 500 KB?

There are two easy ways. You can search on google images, when you click on the picture the sidebar will tell you the dimensions and data size of the image. Or you can save the image on your computer and hover the mouse over the file, and it will tell you the size of the image.

Apparently, this discussion on gif's haws inspired some sort of signature crackdown by the mods.

Also, you can right click in firefox and "view image info". Pretty sure there is an equivalent in IE or Chrome or Opera or whatever you use.

Chrome doesn't have that, not really. To my knowledge, "inspect element" doesn't let you look at the image's size, or if it does, it's heavily obscured. Also opening the image in a new tab DOESN'T put the filesize in the tab title, which I think Firefox does.

Then again, it seems like Google are becoming shittier and shittier as time passes.

HOLY **** FINALLY. THIS IS AMAZING AAAAAAAAAAA

OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE BEST NEWS OF THE YEAR. Seriously. I wonder what it'll sound like (besides kickass), but I guess it doesn't really matter that much, since despite how different they all are, most of his albums are pretty much equally awesome.

CAN'T WAIT

I figure you ought to fix that. Unless they're all, like, Machine Messiah or longer, that's not enough of your life you're diverting to this!

Seconded. Though hypothetically, if it were a sample of random prog songs, it'd probably be more (and better) music than most artists' entire catalogs.

As long as I like how it sounds, I don't really care how niche it is. Suggest away.

So, choosing about a dozen bands that give a relatively diverse sample of different styles of old music isn't that hard. Saying that you should try just one of their songs, though, really truly is (at least when trying to avoid songs which most people have heard before). So I didn't:

Boston - "Peace of Mind" or "Something About You"
Byrds - "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)" or "My Back Pages"
Doors - "Peace Frog" or "Love Her Madly"
Eagles - "One of These Nights" or "Take It Easy"
Fleetwood Mac - "Don't Stop" or "Go Your own Way"
Kansas - "A Glimpse of Home" or "Miracles Out of Nowhere"
Led Zeppelin - "Over the Hills and Far Away" or, if you have ten minutes to spare, you have to hear "Achilles Last Stand" sometime before you die
Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Saturday Night Special" or "Tuesday's Gone"
Pink Floyd - "Wish You Were Here" or "Time" (or "Money" if you're one of those people)
Tom Petty - "Walls" or "Mary Jane's Last Dance"
Traffic - "Paper Sun" or "Dear Mr. Fantasy"
Who - "Love Reign o'er Me" or "Won't Get Fooled Again"
Zombies - "Time of the Season" or "She's Not There"

And I was going to give YouTube links, but then I realized that I already spent too much effort on this. Eh. Oh, and as for anybody else: if you don't know every song on this list offhand, you'd better stop and reevaluate how your life brought you to this point (immediately after listening to everything here, of course).

The Yu-Gi-Oh Anime is alright since at least they change the storyline once in a while unlike pokemon

ZEXAL is, shockingly, mostly acceptable.

my signature > your signature

Signature of the year right there, for sure.

You guys suck at gifs.
