re: linking to blogs etc..

let me begin by saying i'm fine w/ the rules of the forums..

but.. as far as providing the best "quality of experience" in the forums
i don't see why how having one url link to your
personal blog or website as your signature is worse than the the 3 or four line
quote fests that people are fond of doing in their posts. i'd rather see
a small smiley sized "personal" link icon at the bottom of a post, or on the left
hand side column along w/ the poster name than multiple line long sig's with
quotes that i'm not really interested in seeing on every post.

In the spirit of 'why don't you make a thread for that' i would suggest
If you have quotes you'd like to share make a thread for that and post them
there.. I would enjoy reading them. once. :-)

maybe somehow making the 'about me' link via the poster's name on the left
a little more apparent would do the trick..

Yeah, like I've never been accused of passive/agressive behavior before. Pffft.

I think links to personal websites should be in the profile area and/or the LINKS area of the forum...a link or a reference to a website tends to be intrusive under each post. However a sig under each post can be nice gives me a quick read on the person - if its been read before I don't usually reread unless I like it.
