    And yet, at the same time, a signature represents something that someone put a bit of effort into. It is an individualized expression of the original holder. While not "stealing" in the technical sense, taking a sig without permission is tantamount to using the same moniker. After all, would you be happy to having 15 people calling themselves ColoradoVike? How about if each one capitalized a different letter (The remaining 3 would have to capitalize 2 letters).


    So, while I don't think that Vikefanman2000 meant to cause any harm, I can also see where the original holder would be slightly peeved at seeing his personal sig taken without permission.

    Vikefanman2000, Olson_10 is absolutely correct. If you see a sig you really like, contact the "wearer" and ask them if they could help you out by maiking one for you. Most sig makers are more than happy to do so. I myself didn't make my sig, it was graciously created by another member (Who will remain nameless unless he wants to volunteer sig making services).

    Just my 2 cents.

    Note: Vikefanman2000 cannot request for a sig to be made per the 150 post rule.

    After 150, Caine is right, these guys will be happy to do so.

    Caines sig...not to hard to figure out who did that one. :wink:
    Remember WHO made the original 150 rule...it was the first sig makers here that arbitrarily chose that number...and it was to guard against them making sigs for newbies only to have those newbies disappear from the site shortly thereafter. BUT now it seems that we have so many sig makers who are itching to make more sigs (always creating new sig contests, etc.) that maybe each sig maker should create their own rules about how they want to handle future sig requests. Maybe newbies can choose from a group of pre-made generic sigs (much like the stock avatars on the site...one of which still works for me). Just a thought...and the ONLY members who should vote on this should be the aforementioned sig makers...far be it for me to tell them who they can make sigs for.

    Just a thought.

    I edited out your sig and typed that.

    The user was upset you stole his original artwork. I took care of it.



    Yeah you can steal non copywriten material, are you going to get arrested for it? No. It's just poor taste.

    They should just take every sig off and call it good. Save the badwidth and the scroll wheel on the mouse. :grin:

    Re: Stealing is bad mmmkay........

    Actually, in regards to the 150, Webby came up with that number. It's to guard against people coming in, getting a sig, and leaving again right away. But, it's also a way to set a goal for new members, to get them posting, and to get them to fully join this community. It takes a while on any forum to develop a sense of how the forum works, and a sense of the personality of the forum. I've seen a number of people get off to rough starts on this board, but keep pushing through to get to that 150 mark, and end up becoming great folks to have around.

    As for the pre-made generic sigs, well, we had a "sig shop" for a while, but it wasn't used, so it fell by the wayside.
