I noticed something on another board I go to that struck me as a nice way to maybe save a little stress on the server and to make long threads a bit easier to read. On this other board, a person's signature is only shown once per page, even if they post 3-4 times on a page. I wonder if such a thing would be something to look into here, esp. with the option to view a large number of posts per page, it might cut down a little bit on server traffic.

Just a thought to throw out there.

This is only a "problem" for registered users who aren't in dialup mode, so I'll probably take a pass on implementing anything like this.

(On a tangent, I can think of about a dozen people who should probably change their signature because all they're doing is punishing registered users who aren't in dialup mode)

FWIW I use dialup mode for that very reason.

Yes, but YOU won't be able to remember which day you were WOTD every time you look at one of your posts! And don't ask me 'cause *I* ain't tellin'

Speaking of being WOTD and completely off topic; I've been here close to three years now and I STILL haven't been 'randomly' chosen yet. What's a guy gotta do around here to make this happen?

I feel left out...

You current have a 1 in 2643 chance, give or take. Three years is ONLY 1095 days, give or take. That's not even a 50-50 chance.

I haven't hit the Powerball either, but you don't see ME complaining. (until now)
