    OK GUYS!!!!!!!!! CHANGEUP!!!!!!! (I EDITED THIS POST, SO READ THE NEW BEFORE COMMENTING) I have seen MANY reasons to keep long signatures. My eyes are now opened. So, in my new opinion, go for listing all the horns you have. It is your signature. But, for people like me, with slow computers, would you mind putting your list of horns in smallest font, (see veery's signature) so that we people with dinosaur age computers don't have to turn a page more than we have to? Thanks in advance,HSO

    This is a free internet forum. We take what we get. I prefer a long list to the endless BS about notes above the staff. Just imagine if the kiddies (of all ages) started posting their RANGE instead of their horns. I guess I would have a bit more to chuckle about.....................................

    Here's the rule:

    Your signature cannot be longer than 500 characters excluding BB code markup.

    It is the message you get when you go beyond the limit. It's your signature, so do what you like.

    Still, it is optional when posting to include it or not. I usually only include mine - probably considered by the OP as obnoxious - when the post relates to collections or a particular brand or model, when the topic is signatures, or when feeling that I need some inflation.

    Last 2 now:-P

    P.S. I can play up to here!

    I don't mind, and it's useful to see what people have. And Yes, they are all played.

    I don't know why it would bother you or even make any differance. I haven't found it useful, but I like to look over peoples equipment.

    Well, I didn't actually mention this yet, but my computer is very OLD and it takes forever to load a new page, so that would be another reason that I hate long signatures. I respect and like the way that you minimize your font so that people don't have to scroll down too much to see the next post.

    And just an FYI, 500 characters can go a LONG way to take up page space.
