We need to do something about this
« on: August 27, 2012, 03:18 pm »
Some people are using embedded Flash on their signatures, and it's pissing my computer, and therefore, myself off. There's at least one who has embedded a YouTube video (hidden of course) and one that even has a Sploder game (hidden of course) in their signature too. There should be a rule that forbids using embed in signatures.

Sincerely,
- Neutralization and his computer-looking toaster

I think it might be possible to disable the use of flash in sigs. What annoys me is the people with several animated gifs in their sig. That makes lag for me.

I haven't seen that kind of option. GIFs don't lag for me, but embed almost entirely freezes my browser and causes an enormous amount of lag.

Yeah animated images and stuff should be not allowed, only normal images and text

No, I meant that whoever has this problem can disable signatures from being viewed by them.

Yeah Chimera is right. I don't want to disable signatures if they just have text or static images, but GIFs look annoying and Flash does something unexplainable.

I use a notebook and I was gutted when I had to disable sigs because of a few selfish users that decide to add animations and videos!
I say it as I see it.
I don't lick anyone's behind to gain "respect" on this site.

GIFs and embeds in signatures should not lag for you any more than GIFs and embeds outside of them. Unless you have a horridly snail-speed Internet connection, it takes a significant amount of embedded Flash objects to make any noticeable difference in lag. As long as no one is embedding like 15 objects at once, I personally see no problem with it.
Now, in the case of autoplaying videos and games that make sound before you start it, yes, this can be a little disruptive, but easily remedied. Just talk with the person with that kind of signature and tell them to do something to make it have no sound.

Dude notebooks aren't designed to handle a page of embeds...

That's why before I start using Flash in any way I use Task Manager to adjust the plugin-container.exe:s priority. But the signatures' embed comes out unexpected, and it pisses off, you're not supposed to embed videos or Sploder games to your signature.

Internet speed is more so dependent on your Internet connection than on your device.

So other than the purported lag issue, what exactly is wrong with it? It doesn't really disrupt anything, unless there's an unreasonable boatload of embeds in a signature, in which case, yes, it would likely cause lag. A 5-minute YouTube video takes up about 35 MB, and I imagine that an embedded game is around the same. 35 MB is something most Internet connections, even weak ones, should handle with ease.

Nothing really, but the point is that I don't want my comp- toaster to choke for a minute every time I enter a page of a discussion where a person has posted, and that person has embedded Flash in his signature.

I haven't lagged in the slightest from embedded flash signatures yet. On a side note, I have also used my phone to access the forums and no lag whatsoever.

I could have the fastest internet speed possible and a notebook would still struggle... Unless you have a top of the range notebook it wont be able to process so many embeds.

It wasn't a lot better before though. People usually embedded music for the threads, and it also made my computer choke a lot. But now, when they are in signatures, my computer chokes all the time and that's not a good thing. For people who want to say "just buy a new computer", it's not my side, it's their side.

Okay I found a simple solution for me: I disabled the forums.sploder.com page with NoScript but not the www.sploder.com page. Seems like 10000truths has one embed game in his signature and mrdragon has three of them.

d002y937, d002kkfk and d002r3i4. If something tells the truth, NoScript does.

I only have one. When Truths and I were testing something out, I had 3. But that was around 2 weeks ago.
