I decided to let the bunnies rest for a bit and recycle an oldie but goodie:

anyone recall the era when we were all doing this style?

Post up some sigs. Get inspired to make new ones. Etc!

I thought about swapping out Bette Davis for Patrick Bateman Pepe, but it didn’t really work landscape.

Meh.

I’d love to play, but I think all my vintage sigs are hosted at sh!tholes that stoped allowing hotlinking.
And I’m too lazy to find a new host.

So none for y’all.

I’ll fix the width cf point 1 later, or you can readjust it for me.

turtle, your sig is classic as it is.

And*reg did not like my 2-min ps job of his sig. Let's hope he's back soon with an even better one!

(all in good fun, infractions have yet to be imposed in this thread. But enjoying the old-timey bickering... )

Yeah, but my rotate script is showing age.
I now only get one or two different colors, where i used to get 4 or 5.

But then again, I’m to old slow to give a [email protected]#$.

*shrug* It was a rushed effort at the end of the day using Pixelmator Pro, I have ideas for a better one over the weekend and I’ll be more mindful of the dimensions

Maybe it's time for an update then?

I was thinking we should have a photoshop contest with the latest big pop culture thing. What is that, anyhow? Stranger Things? Brooklyn 99? Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones has potential. I'm thinking of making a "DON'T BE FATUOUS JOFFREY" crossover with my big lebowski sig. Way back when, MindFad made a bunch of Lebowski sigs for all of us, too bad he is off in the emoji big leagues now.

What else would make a good theme?

I still think this is the best sig image that ever appeared on this forum:

Just for context:

I called someone an asshole FOR POSTING A SNUFF VIDEO. Real people burnt to cinders by high voltage.

If that term wasn’t appropriate: only for not being strong enough.

I think swearing standards have relaxed quite a bit since the early days, I was just teasing, andreg. A bit of retro modding.

Stogie, to get dropbox images to post again, if they are still in Public folder, get the "dropbox link" and instead of dl=0 put raw=1 .

Because 80%+ of all posts are from mods these days

If it wasn’t for swearing, there’d be nothing to else to say

Apparently MacNN was awesome from 1999-2001, and since then 90% of posts have been pining for way back when MacNN was awesome.

My original account was Jan 2001, and when I joined people were already complaining about how the place had gone to shit. Imagine thinking someplace is a pile of crap, then continuing to visit that place for so long that your original complaints can now buy tobacco.

Sadly all my really old ones must have died long ago when iDisk shuffled off the mortal coil, which is a bummer because I had a really sweet animated .gif that would definitely not hold up today.

You are absolutely correct.

Created in 2001, during the NFN crisis. Never actually deployed, because I was a scared wuss. If I recall correctly, the NFN guy never banned anyone.
