What about the letters in the link?

It wouldn't necessarily matter as much if the signature was only a small window, with which you could scroll. I suppose you could limit them, but it wouldn't serve much purpose if it only takes up a small space anyways.

I have nothing against signatures, just don't let them to be too big-sized.

have the admins make a little thing where you would set your signature say

Set your signature, the window will be no bigger than x by y, any thing bigger will require scrolling to view.

and below have a check-box to turn on/off signatures.

If they decide to add signatures it should strictly be text, same size as regular text, and a short limit. Just enough to include what you want, not something that takes up a large amount of the page.

No why should it just be regular text? As Jacen pointed out, making all sigs fit into a certain resolution and giving it a scroll function can solve such problems.

The forum wouldn't be aesthetic anymore. The last thing we need is large text after each post. Regular text is also noticeable as a signature, we don't need anything fancy.

Aesthetics don't have a clear definition, the field is nebulous and contentious. As it is, many would argue that the white based forums we have are too clinical and too monotonous.

As for large fancy pictures/doodles/texts clogging up the thread, again I beg to differ. As Jacen has stated this size is limited to a certain resolution, presumably not too large to disorientate people. From perusing multiple forums and using them for ages, no, signatures do not cause disorganization and confusion given their predetermined sizes which have worked pretty well.

Why is a signature feature wanted? You are already capable of including signatures on your posts/comments as is, some users even do.

It's less work to create the signature once than for every post.

A simple solution is to keep the signature saved in notepad then paste it at the end of your posts. All a signature feature will do is save ten seconds of your time, hardly worth implementing.
