Forum rules
Welcome to The Scottish Boinc Team boards. See forum rules in pinned post. If you can't be bothered then try not to be too naughty as I have a delete button to press and a ban hammer to swing.

Are you happy with the changes to the board ?

Yes, board is far quicker and more readable. I like it.

No, I want my signature on every post. I hate it.

I think signatures are a waste of space and should be banned ( bah humbug !! )

Most of the sites providing us with signatures seem to have been having lots of connection issues recently. This has considerably impacted the board by slowing it down and causing lots of I/O errors on the server.
As a result I have changed the coding to display your signature only on the first post you make. This has made the loading on the server far more manageable.
Further I have cached my signature locally so it will always be available, regardless of providing site availability.

So first question is do you like / hate the changes ?

The second is that should anyone else wish their signature cached locally to help speed up the board then please post and let me know. I'll upload your signature to the server and provide you with a local link to replace your signature.

Pro's for doing
  • The board runs quicker.
    Your signature is always available.
    Board is more secure
.
Con's for doing this
  • Your signature will only be updated when I check or you ask me to update it.

I went for Option 1 but it was a close run thing with Option 3 :lol:
I think this is fool-proof but could you just try it for me please? • There are 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don’t

@Megacruncher @scole of TSBT @Bryan @Dirk Broer @Cruncher Pete
If I can retrieve your sigs from our server rather than signature.statseb.fr it will make things far faster. If you don't want to do this it will not make a huge difference but can you at least change the url in your signature to https ?

If you want to use the uploaded cached version then change your signature in your user control panel to the below

If any-one else wants their sig cached then let me know here.

Pete

@Dirk Broer is now using the cached version.
Let me know here if any of the rest of you are or not so I know who will need updates in the future.
Also anyone else wish this then post here and let me know.
Cheers.

@Cruncher Pete you need to post the code between the img tags. Use this to make it display correctly

@Cruncher Pete perfect. I'll update periodically or let me know when you have a new badge and I'll do the update.

@scole of TSBT Cheers. The difference in speed by just caching our two sigs is significant. Think we may have a few posts between us :lol:
