The "Don't let Tiff's Dragon's Fire Go Out" campaign!Patron: Lady Sybil Vimes
Although I never broke any forum rules, I am partially responsible for the complete blanket ban on signature images.
A ban that has caused unnecessary distress to Tiff, with the loss of her baby dragon image.
I therefore feel duty-bound to do everything in my power to get Tiff's dragon reinstated.
I am under a gease! (Just my twisted sense of honour
In a democracy, sometimes decisions are made which, although seeming well-meant at the time, have unforeseen negative consequences.
In a democracy, it is the right, nay duty, of every individual to protest in such cases.
I believe this is such a case.
As Rap and Del have pointed out, there is a simple solution available for those who don't wish to see signature images.
All they have to do is simply adjust their settings accordingly.The Proposal
The following is a modest proposal which if voted on, carried and implemented, would enable Tiff's dragon image to be reinstated.
* Each member would be entitled to have a maximum of one image on their signature.
* The image MUST NOT be animated.
* The image MUST NOT be too big.
In a couple of days I will be posting a poll in the Broken Drum inviting members to vote on this proposal.
If there is a large majority in favour of the proposal, the powers that be might consider rethinking the blanket ban, a ban that most senior members here appear to oppose.
On a different note, I see there is a very interesting review of Long Earth on the June issue of Discworld Monthly.
(Click on the link in Jason's signature on page 1 of this thread.)
I also notice that the Discworld Monthly is seeking funds to assist in spreading the good word around.
What a worthy cause!
I myself, am considering donating five pounds to help the running costs.
