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.

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.

Can I ask that we use the cached sigs again as sebs site has been very slow transferring signatures again.
If anyone else wants their sig to be cached for local loading please let me know and I will add you.

@Gibson Praise That's you added. Your sig is sig-929 ( not sig-2197 )


Use

Code: Select all

 [img]/AP/sitesigs/sig-929.png[/img]
as the link

-- That's the sig up now. It will automatically update when I update ( You're added to my list ). If you need it updated earlier just let me know.

Using the cached signatures really speeds up load times when forum does not have to look up sebs stat site. Can those not using it just now consider changing their sig back to the cached version @Megacruncher ?
