Can posts be limited - voluntarily, of course - to a reasonable length? Some of the treatises that I am reading recently would rival Tolstoy.

And quoting massively long missives in replies - what's that all about :duno:

The same when a music clip - or clips - is (are) posted.

And huge pictures in signatures!

I reckon someone should start a Forum suggestions thread. I can't be bothered, and I don't have time as I'm arranging my Everton membership anyway.

Forgot to add - banning sarcastic South African Fellaini lookalike posters would be a good place to start.

I agree with the large signatures (never quite understood how people manage to get them anyway, whenever I try anything too big it seems to tell me the file is too large).
I don't mind long posts, but a few line breaks/paragraphs helps, though a lot of the time I just can't be bothered to read them!

I'm afraid if I see a long post stretching paragraph after paragraph I really can't be bothered to read it. I occasionally speed read but usually just scroll to the next one. They tend to be very repetitive :roll: :bear:

You realise they are saying they don't want big pictures of your lovely kids on the forum, Bakerboy?

I find it great that some on here actually takes the time to write proper good lengthy posts, no one is forcing anyone to read them, so simple answer to this suggestion is dont bloody read the posts you dont want to read. ooofff

I'll agree with that, Zero.

However, animated repetitive GIF signatures annoy the crap out of me! :twisted: :-D

I suggest that Grace change her name by deed poll to Lulu so she can be LUFCLULU to avoid confusion.
