...and while I'm poking at the moderator, what good or purpose does enabling or allowing HTML do?

Howdy

SIGs are turned off.

Every site I've seen with SIG has a page-long list of rules about them in terms of character, lines, and picture size limits because eventually eventually they end up consuming more screen that the actual information and communication does. This place doesn't need that.

Neat, clean, simple, but very effective.

I would like to see text only signatures implemented. Turn off HTML, pictures or whatever, but I would like to have a simple one or two lines just stating what I drive. Not a full mod list (that should be in my profile. I need space in my profile for my mod list).

So, can we please have a 2 line maximum text only signature...pretty please...?

I think it will help when answering technical questions. Getting the year, model, etc. already out there.

Eric, you've already gotten quite a few "I would like to see" wishes granted!

But this time...

Sorry pal... :D


We cannot set limitations in content or quantity on the SIGs, so the only option becomes on/off.
You can use the website link to point to your own space that details your truck.

When editing a post for spelling and such, I keep getting held up because it tells me I am not allowed to repeat post so soon. Can you kill or shorten this timer in the editing mode?

I doubt it's seperately configurable. The time limit can be configured but if you saw what the spam bots did to the the old audio forum you'd know why every little thing that could possibly help prevent that from happening again in the future is probably something that will be left enabled...

I heard the other truck sites had to implement this rule as a result of you attempting to fit your mods list into a sig. :-D

Thanks James. :evil:

I'm just trying to make the forum the best place possible. 8)

Anyway, if a limit cant be set, I am in favor of keeping signatures off then, because it will create a lot of bandwith waste, and spam. No good if you cant control it from behind the scenes.

This new forum kicks ass though, don't you agree James? The OT section and the "Peformance/Technical" section are about equal. I love being able to separate the two. Don't you?

Yes, it's awesome. The old one required a lot of technical maintenance, this one isn't going to need any. Now that the format is set the only needed intervention needed will be moving a few threads every now and then and possibly cleaning up a few posts. Like I said, it's awesome.

Glad we are all in agreement. 8) :lol:

I like the fact that you can easily moderate posts cleanly, find everything cleanly, posts get bumped (good for technical), and most of all, no trolls!

Thanks for helping out as hard as you do James.

I think we all need to let Pacific know just how much we appreciate their time, money and effort on this.

Thanks a bunch guys.

To show my appreciation, I will be taking my truck to PA & A for some custom work, although I have not spoken to Dan about it.

I tried to go local, but I ended up figuring out I should have drove to see Dan in the first place. I feel like a moron, but won't anymore once I go to him. We all make mistakes, so it is where you end up that counts (For me, it will be at PA & A).

I expect my bill to total easily over $2,500.00. That should show some appreciation.

I even expect my truck to leave with a Pacific Audio & Alarms sticker on my window.

Updates soon.

502 will not pass California emissions. Sorry bud.

I haven't figured out my engine yet. Going to go for some good N/A numbers (350rwhp, 500rwtq.). I have a plan to make that happen, then maybe I will play with the atmospheric pressure. 18-24psi is my target range and I want to make 5-600rwhp min. Going to be fun once I figure it all out.

15 psi should do more than enough. relatively speaking it should double your NA output...
