This whole thing about sigging people.

I was just strolling around the forum and every now and then you see people with a quote in their signature - and in that quote, the user gets a compliment. For example:

Quote by metacarpi



Slann, you are rapidly becoming a hero for me!

That really grinds my goddamn gears. Is there anyone else that gets annoyed by this? With all due respect to those users, cause im sure they're good people and all, but this just oozes arrogance. Lets put it in a different perspective.

Imagine having a conversation with someone, in REAL life. He tells you about how he got a raise at his job, and he hasn't even been working there that long. His boss told him he was doing a wonderful job. YOU, are impressed. So you say: "That's amazing man, congrats on doing such good work!"!

You might think okay, that's normal, right? Wrong. This time - he has a voice recorder, and he recorded your compliment. And EVERY SINGLE time that he starts up a conversation with someone, he will play that compliment to that person. Yes. That's annoying. And sigging compliments that are aimed at you is basically the internet equivalent of that. Better yet, it's the internet equivalent of comparing penis sizes, taking a picture, and showing everyone you had the bigger one.

Just my two cents. Am I the only one here who thinks of it that way?

Poor metacarpi

You can stick whatever you want in your sig, it's your own space.

I tend to agree.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

Meh, they're no worse than people who fill the sig with quasi-intellectrual garbage.

Just be glad pictures aren't allowed in signatures here.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

It's not that annoying and not everybody does it.

Meh. Flattery can only get you so far. It won't be long until poor Metacarpi is giving blowjobs in a back ally for cash and the latest heroin fix.

It would be ultimate irony if you sigged this now

Do this. People can have what they want in their sigs. Deal with it.

And youve got a quote by a writer. Not that I have anything against Wilde, but quotes of writers, poets etc annoys me like 10 times more.

You don't have to read it, so it would more accurately be like recording the compliment and playing it back really quietly.
Quote by Necrophagist777

I agree, i always help people up. At the last show we all protected this little kid who was tying his shoe in the middle of the pit.

It's pretty annoying, but it is perpetual.

Several times in the pit I have had something ridiculously over-the-top said to me in a lame sig attempt like

"wow mistress_ibanez thanks a lot you own my soul"

"mistress_ibanez like totally wins the internet"

ffs. Just say you agree or whatever. Sigging your own compliments is sad but giving them out just to get sigged is worse.
#26
Wow Mistess_Ibanez, you're so ****ing awesome.

#27
Yeah, it is fairly annoying. But you have to consider, these people probably don't get any praise in real life so they seek it online.
#30
Ibanez, they only say that **** cuz you have a poonand this place is filled with horney 15 yr olds.

as fo rthe compliments....

I whole hartedly agree. its annoying, granted there are some funny ass ones you see around here that are actually worth sigging. Personally, i would rather sig something that made me laugh so hard i couldnt control my bladder.

I think it's better than gear lists or GAS lists.


I hate people that put their gear in their sig, especially when they have smilies after everything in it.

Dont mind sigs really, just dont like people who try to get sigged e.g "OMG you are sooo awsome and full of win!!" kind of stuff. Those people can f*ck right off.
#39
yea, sigging is annoying as hell. its really not that big of a deal that you said something funny one isolated time. thats why i put a badly worded pretentious insult from a complete tool in mine. its not everyday that you piss of someone so full of himself.
