PS3 News Scheduled Downtime, Forum Upgrades & Logo Thread

Sponsored Links
194w ago - Just a quick heads-up to everyone, starting this weekend (not an April 1st joke) we will begin upgrading the vB3 Forums we currently use to [Register or Login to view links], and through the transition there will be some scheduled downtime while our server cat works his magic!

Once the vB4 upgrade itself is complete, we will undergo another few weeks of work with some minor downtime while porting the remaining modules to vB4, followed by implementing some of your 2011 suggestions to our site. If you have any feel free to contribute them to the thread and we will do our best to make it happen.

Additionally, we are currently seeking a new site logo- if you are a graphic artist and would like to share some design concepts check out this ongoing thread... if we end up selecting one posted we will send the artist a $100 PayPal gift to express our appreciation.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their PS3 News site suggestions and logo designs to date, and we look forward to checking out new ones as time permits!

Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene and PlayStation 4 scene updates and fresh homebrew releases!

I think generally having a signature is better for message boards. It lets the individual seem more unique in a way being able to display a signature whether it be a design, quote etc.

I think setting a max limit of at least 350x125 for logo size would be more than enough for any user and setting a character count. Also, I'm sure there is either a feature or a mod where you can specify who is able to have a signature. This could depend on Post Count, User Rank etc. no idea how you want to go about it but just some thoughts.

Im generally pro-signature, it let's users feel more part of the board and being unique.

My two cents..

I'd have to agree on fact that sigs generally contain spam and no useful information to the reader. But if they could be enabled in short text only form or maybe even as a link limited to the particular users choice of most informative thread or threads such as guides, tutorials or help topics then maybe they could even become useful.

I don't like the signatures - they tend to clutter and eventually it all looks like advertising campaigns. If you restrict the size of such a signature, then maybe it will work, but I have my doubts!

I too dislike signatures, but if they were resrticted junior member and up I could deal with that. It would be nice to have the option to hide them.

I like the idea of only higher usergroups having sigs.

Also as pointed it out, there should be an option for us to use the forums without the sigs enabled.
