As you post - I see a black/white sig...."UF4LIFE102SS" is written to the upper left, and a smokey skull appears of the hood of a gorgeous black Camaro...

Is that the one you had, that now you can't see?

Another moderator might have edited it. As one of the rules is no animated sigs

I was wondering the same when I saw mine disappear. All I had was one of those animated smiley driving a Camaro next to the Rustang.

Its not that your sig was inappropriate or anything it's that the site does not allow animated sigs. Why? Because it slows down the site. Imagine if everyone had an animated sig and the people with slow internet had to try and load the pages with all those animations. Thats my guess.

Yep, I personally think that is one of the best parts of our website. Pages load fast. If you had it for a long time, most likely we just now took notice.

As explained in the rules:
Quote:
9) Signature Limitations — Height: 200 pixels; No animated images. We apologize for any individual inconvenience, however this results in threads that are much easier to read, and load much faster so you can make the most of your time online!
The 200 pixel limit is automatically enforced (anything beyond gets cutoff, including text) but animated sigs are up to the staff to deal with.

This is exactly the reason. The policy has nothing to do with content - purely to keep things loading quickly. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Exactly.

If I deleted it (and I can't remember....had to take out a few)...then I apologize for not getting with you to tell you. I know I don't always send a message to folks when I do. Bad habit as I'm usually flying through things... I know... Sorry if that was me.

I had an administrator delete my signature. I don't have a problem following the rules but when I sent them a message they didn't have the decency to respond at all. I think it's time for new administrators!!! Maybe some that have a little compassion. And FYI my signature was not animated nor was it inappropriate.

lol it does not work that way. This site has only 2 Admins. Since they are users #1 and #2, it's a pretty safe assumption at least one, if not both own the site.

You can always find staff here, - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showgroups.php

Tran? I would guess it was one of the moderators.

I am quite confused.

If you know who deleted your signature, then they had to have been in contact with you. I don't know of any other way for you to know who did it. In which case, it is quite odd that they would take the time to tell you they deleted your signature yet not include a reason in that message -unless the reason was blatantly obvious. After all, it takes nearly as much time & effort to send a PM that says "I deleted your signature" as it does to say "I deleted your signature because it was ___ "

Now you've got 8.

And I just deleted someone else's sig a while back (which had advertising in it) and was unable to send a message about it at the time (as I was on my phone and was extremely busy). But I did send a message later on that day.

I'm not sure you know "who" deleted your sig since the only way to know is if they sent you a message....and usually they explain why.

If it was an admin, I'm not surprised he didn't get back to you as he gets hundreds of PM's per day, has (I don't even know how many) sponsors he's now dealing with on this site, the construction of a new site going up, and so much more. If all you want is a simple answer as to why your sig was deleted, ASK ONE OF US.

Was there advertising in it?
Was there political messages in it?
Was there animation in it?
Did it have an external link to a for sale, other site, something inappropriate?

really....an answer can be provided if you really wanted one. All you have to do is ask. We are all waiting.

I know who deleted it. I don't think it's appropriate to post names here. I have contacted a moderator and after discussing it it seems like the person who deleted it has a history of ignoring people's messages.
Please don't get me wrong I love this site but I adamantly disagree with the practice of arbitrarily deleting signatures WITHOUT giving the members an opportunity to either change it or delete it. People have a lot of time invested in their signatures just to delete them without even a heads up. My signature was not animated. It did not contain any political messages or links at all. It didn't even have any advertising (unlike just about everybody else's).
Like I said I have contacted a moderator via PM and they have "guessed" why it might've been deleted. I'm good with just putting this whole experience behind me and moving on.

I am sorry if any moderators took offense to my post. My comments were directed solely to the one person who chose to ignore my questions.

I'm not a mod, but just say it and get it over with. I'm sure he will not care. These guys have to put up with crap all day long and I'm sure all eight of them don't want to play the "which mod did what" game.
Spit it out or I'm just assuming you're a troll

Well, it couldn't have been a mod. They would have mentioned it by now either here or in our mod section and no one's said anything. That means it had to have been the site administrator/owner...which, to me, means it was only one person. And quite frankly, I wouldn't go screaming and yelling too much about something as minor as this while a guest in the owners house. But hey...that's just me.

I delete signatures. And if it was deleted, then it was against the site rules in some way (i.e. offensive, lewd, or otherwise inappropriate signature). That should be obvious.
