May I suggest that we edit / erase our text and sig when we are done with the test. Remember that each time someone load a test sig page it uses a lot of bandwith on Neil's account (for those using Mundayweb). I am currently going arround all my previous sig test to erase them.

Since this service from Neil is free and in order to keep it lets not abuse is bandwith.

Just an idea...

That's a good idea. I know I didn't realize I could edit the same post when I was trying to get it right. Over at CPDN, there's a single solitary post making it look like I got it right the first time.

Also, even though Neil does it for free, there is a handy PayPal button that makes it oh so easy to give him money. Anybody who uses his sigs should at least give him $5 or probably around 2.55 pounds sterling.

but a good one.

Your advice is golden, every time a thread is opened, every signature
is reloaded.

Not only Mundayweb, every "provider" of signatures is involved.

We can ask the boards administraton, to delete the labeled "..signature...."
Threads from time to time.

What can be done to carfully and respectfully sensitize those people, having the need to put 2 or 3 or even more signature files in active threads?

It's free for the user, but somebody has to pay the bills..

May I point you towards the fact that you can now test your signature in your forum preferences instead of posting on the boards at all.
