Okay, I may as well wade into this abyss.

Since you’re talking about avatars, why don’t you:

1. Remove that creepy large picture in your sig. It’s annoying, cluttering, and distracting. Nobody else seems to use pictures in their sig, at least not like that.

2. Use a plain image for your avatar, not a GIF that simulates a video. Again, distracting, though not nearly as bad as your awful sig picture.

3. This one is minor, but why don’t you post in plain text? Trying to quote anything from you means cutting out reams of garbage mark-up tags. And the mark-up you’re using doesn’t seem to enhance anything in your post.

I know, I know. You’re not going to do any of that. I’m just saying if you’re going to throw stones, ….

The F-word is not allowed on BLF, especially over 900 times in an avatar.

1.  There's no rule against having a large signature.

2.  There's no rule against having an animated gif in my avatar.

3.  There's no rule against using the Advanced Post Editor.

You clearly don't have a leg to stand on.

I'm not breaking any rules, so get used to my avatar, get used to my signature, and get used to me using the Advanced Post Editor.

Like I said, I'm not breaking any rules, so worry about yourself instead.

There used to be twice as much text and five times as many images in my signature as there is now.  :BEER:

WalkIntoTheLight, I think you should have a large image in your non-existent signature, add an animated gif as your avatar, and start using the Advanced Post Editor.

Of course, I predict that you won't do any of these things because...

Why should you?

I think he is using the “Advanced post editor” option (look below the text box when writing a comment). If you switch to that the tags disappear. if you need to quote someone using this format, you could click the quote button, switch to the advanced editor, copy the text sans formatting, then switch back to regular. Extra work to be sure, but maybe less frustrating than deleting all the formatting. I’m not sure the formatting adds a lot for the amount of extra text it creates, but using the advanced post editor may come with some benefits we aren’t seeing by using the “simple post editor” (my preference) anyhow.

Personally, I don’t go for all the flash some like to use in sigs/avatars/etc, but I’ve usually had positive interactions with raccoon city. I think he is a valuable member here, and it feels like we really shouldn’t care too much about what he puts in his signature. I heard this line in a play one time: “ ‘to each his own’… said the lady as she kissed the cow”. You can use an ad blocker to remove/block those items if you wanted to, and it wouldn’t cause any trouble or drama.

I’ve not had much interaction with nev since I joined, but it seems from some of his recent posts that he is a kidder (imagine the uncle that always tries to “yank your chain” or “get your goat”) and probably doesn’t like Anduril as much as I do. Bad words are out of place here, but it seems he changed the avatar since then. I’d say we’re probably good at this point.

As is sometimes said: “It takes all types”.

I’m way excited about the FW3-CuTi version. I decided to save my Lexel AUX board for when it arrives. I’m torn on whether I should put some 219b’s (the lovely SW45K variety) in it or some LH351D’s (5000k 90+ cri). My wife will get the FW3C once I’m finished modding, polishing, and applying renaissance wax to it.

I am no expert… but it looks like you did not make complete crispy critters out of any of your LED’s. Thumbs Up

I do see some dark areas on them all…. BUT, that may just be on the optic or dirty LED’s.

You can clean the LED’s & MCPCB with a Q-tip & alcohol if you wish.

Have you got a pic of yours Nev? So we could compare.

I think they’re just distracting, especially racoon’s creepy sig picture. If it was small, maybe not so much. And really, what do big unrelated sig pictures add? At best, it makes the forum look like it’s filled with advertising.

I’ll look into an ad-blocker. Do you recommend one for Chrome? Ad block plus, maybe? Can it remove just racoon’s sig, and not mess anything else up? Nobody else’s sig bothers me in the least, so I don’t want to block anything else.

See the bottom one? That spec of whatever can cause it to look like the top left one after a few seconds of turbo. That is the worst solder job I have ever seen. The wires, the LEDs, the solder balls, the flux. It’s all bad.

No, they look the same , the only difference is ,the black wire is now desoldered, probly because it got even hotter because the bezel wasn’t pushing down & aiding heat transfer ,
I could smell the burning plastic before I opened it , that’s the reason I opened it.
