I don't get what the Yanks call gravy. Half the time it's like, thick white sauce with shit added to it sometimes. That's not gravy, that's *added shit* sauce, not gravy. Learn to speak English damnit!

Also, Ketchup mixed with mayo is the god condiment for chips and sandwiches/burgers. Mustard is a backing condiment to them, maybe occasionally on it's own with meats. Otherwise, barbecue sauce.

I dunno, it's just when I see stuff like "Biscuits and gravy", it's really scones and white sauce with something in it, and it seems to just be thicker and whiter in general (must resist 'Murica joke...)

Gravy is just the excess fat heated back up and with a tiny bit of salt added. That's how we do it at my house anyways.

Of course, condiments as a whole are horrible. Salt, Cheese, Butter, and Teriyaki sauce are the only good condiments out there.

    • Rule 1.a.i added for clarification
    • Rule 5 has been revised and expanded to all usage of links and images
  • Recommended Rules Added/Changed
    • Rule 10 has been added
    • Clarified image sizing on rule 10 and 11
  • Communication
    • Added my e-mail for contact (Other admins/mods can add in theirs if they so choose, though I recommend using one that isn't attached to your real name)

Forbid moving pic, you mean gif as sig? That's a bit over. Hotlink is ok but gif is too much, I've never seen a community forbid that as sig.

Blame yourself on that one. 8 different gifs hotlinked in a single sig isn't just excessive, it's abusive, and it's part of a long running trend of not only you, but others. Loading a page that you've posted repeatedly on is painful on a laptop, but on mobile it makes it nearly impossible to read things. So, no hotlinking in sigs.

It's not much, if you want it's possible to make them one gif, their size is also just 960X300 total, in the limit. Also it's not like there is no block sig selection.

So no picture in sig? That's silly.

I have to bother because I have to express my opinion.

Most of the communities does not forbid it and we don't see people complain for it, actually many people use gif or YT hotlink as sig. Even when Omacron made Youtube hotlink sig for half of the forum we don't see much complaint, which really slowed down the browsing for a bit. It's not like there is no choice, you can turn off the sig.

All communities I know would never allow what you had for signatures. And yes even Omacrons sig is annoying and shouldn't exist.

It's obnoxious having a signature with like three gifs, a Youtube link and a wide banner picture in it. They're distracting and a lot there's more content than the actual posts.

You mean 960X300 gif? Quite a few people here got bigger size or YT hotlink sig, including a mod before everyone's sig was erased out.

And I agree that even theirs should be removed. There is zero reason to have a youtube video as a sig.

Youtube clips in signatures were an abomination, and I'm glad to see them gone. Not because they in themselves were bad, but they made loading pages to be immensely painful.

Loads upon loads of animated pictures didn't help.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

For a regulations change like this, wouldn't a warning to the primary offender(s) have been warranted first?

For the record, I don't object to the new rule, but if Slowpoke is getting blindsided by this, it means he was never informed "dude, your sig is excessive" by a moderator.

Pretty sure he has been numerous times.

Then why didn't you say a word when Omacron was making those YT sig? Right now all gif is not allowed.

I think you avatar is also too big, clearly created a large area of blank content.

We were having a mod, giving half of the forum YT hotlink, did anyone forbid it?

I agree YT hotlink should not be permitted, but I don't think gif should be totally forbidden to use.
