Here are a few sigs and other things. BTW, I just bumped the max images-per-post from 15 to 30.


This was a joke sig I made for DH. It's an illegal one, with subtle animation. Alas, I wasn't an admin at the time, and didn't have enough permissions to substitute it. So it never got played. Never found out how observant he'd be.


Suggested top-left banner for the forums. circa vB 3.0, before the effgee redesign.


A sig I made during the NewsFactor crisis, but didn't have the guts to put into play.


This was made for a modforum in-joke.

The Team sigs.



















This is a vB hack of mine, currently in effect. Any accounts banned for spamming are given this as the reason. To date, no one has translated the text.

The Cash sigs. There were ultimately 52 of them in random rotation.

I have this one pic, but I don't know where it came from. It might have been a PM and I'm not sure if I should post it.

There was a meme going around years ago. Blonde girl holding a sign, but people changed what was in the sign. Probably not a good idea to post that.

which is the episode where the doctor compares her outfit to British children's character, andy pandy. Which is blue stripes, but maybe the doctor watched on a black and white tv.

When I met her in person, I talked about that episode. She was very nice to a young dork.

This was in the 80's, so is that pre-Comicon?

It was a Doctor Who specific convention run by the "Whovian Society". The highlights of that one were Liz Sladen (obviously), Jon Pertwee (who wasn't exactly mean, but wasn't as dork-appreciative), and seeing Mawdryn Undead before the U.S. was past Davison's first season.

Apart from that being one of the best Davison episodes, since Tegan left at the end of her first season, it was quite the pre-Internet mystery how she was back.


Fun fact: the actor who played Mawdryn, played Poul in Robots of Death which I consider one of the best Bakers.

Baker's never bad, but if looked at with a critical eye, the original show suffers from serious flaws. I tend to rate episodes in terms of how well they get around those flaws. Robots of Death has almost all the stars aligned properly except for some pacing issues, which is always the biggest hurdle in a four-parter.

True, but I dismiss that because they were working in a closet with a budget of $12.

I'm not sure what you're dismissing. My claim is some make better use of no space and a £6 budget than others.

Is this a controversial assertion?
