    Yes, that would be a good point to start, it will probably not have an impact on most new members, but it will at least guide them in the right direction, and if it only helps some, even that would be enough.

    I need to put out what I need to do.
    1. The Ratings Issue
    No. Nothing's here, it'll be sorted soon, chill your tits.
    2. The Signature Shorteners
    I've been using internet that goes down to 0.29 MB/s and I've never had loading issues on this site, not once.
    If you do have loading issues on this site stop using dialup basic internet with a computer that runs Windows PotatOS.
    3. The Ratings Issue - My opinion
    Right, how the hell do you get so riled up by a bunch of pixels?
    If you do get angry at a bunch of coloured pixels being temporarily removed, then your brain is so full of thick shit you're generally really thick.
    I'd admit, at first I was rather clumped about it because I couldn't express what I thought of a post in a short amount of time.
    But eventually, you get used to it.
    Give it a chance, its only temporary anyways.
    4. The Removal of The Members Tab
    I partially agree with this but not fully.
    The "Birthdays" tab should come back because it gives us time saying happy birthdays to thou who have their birthday on that certain day.
    5. Arguments
    Arguments are a thing, arguments will always be a thing, it's better to let them fly before they turn violent otherwise it'll lead to bad consequences.
    6. Moderator strictness
    A 5 day bean for creating a dumb thread.. Why?
    7. /rant
    Let people protest or bad things will happen.
    Take the inspiration for countries that didn't let their civilians protest and those countries collapsed, I'd imagine the same would happen for a forum.
    END OF /rant

    Yes, me too. Loading times are not a good reason for signature removal. Beam loads faster than most sites for me, even when there were long sigs.

    I think shortening sigs was a good move. Noone needs to know 30 gazillion RP cars you own, 30 song lyrics and 50 billion unfunny quotes that are thrice as long as the actual page

    which is why you dont press expand signature and leave it for people who want to read the signature.

    Less than a day later.......

    That long post is also just plain rude, the people you're addressing you're just calling them thick idiots with crap computers/internet and generally talking down to all of us. The sad thing is it's just normal for this forum, the way to be someone here is call people twats. It doesn't seem like removing the reps, or even booting someone out for five days will have any effect.

    Revert to this part of my post:
    Yes, I am calling them thick idiots with bad internet. So what?
    People with bad internet aren't bad, people with bad internet who are asshats are bad.

    @tdev, my messages counter is only counting messages put in "General Discussion," not any of the offtopic forums. Is this intended, or is this a bug?

    Posts in Offtopic are not counted in your total messages indicator since long time ago.

    More concise. Less to read and faster to the point.

    My only complaint would be that the text box doesn't really match up with the site's colour theme. I don't know where else green text or green at all is used on here.

    On mobile, the posting guideline just says "Posting Guideline" which seems pretty useless to me.

    I guess that is the point, it has to be so different that people can't skip it easily.
