We all know that TT runs stock vBulletin forum software with the added header graphic. I'm guessing that this really helps whenever you have to update the software version. I own several boards and like to keep them simple as well for the same reason. Also, stock software allows less security problems.

Anyway, since TT uses the unmodified script, the options are pretty much set on default. Here are a couple that I think could change to make the forum a little bit better:

1. Signature size and style

I agree that the sigs should be kept text-only to prevent people abusing them with huge graphics, but maybe adding a little color to them, bold, italics, etc. wouldn't hurt. Also you could increase the maximum length so that more info could be included. You can enable font sizes as well an limit it to, say, 4.

2. Maximum amount of pictures per post

The default limit of 4 is kind of short. I mean, when posting racquet pictures, tutorials, guides, etc. you usually post more than 4 pictures. I agree that removing the limit or increasing it to 20 is probably overdoing it, but maybe increasing it to 10 wouldn't hurt.

Neither of these increase the server load significantly or represent security threats.

Signature sizes were originally far more spacious. The problem was that several users abused the feature and had 15-19 line signatures with distracting text levels . I was all for constricting them. However, the two line limit that replaced it was too extreme.

A higher image maximum would be nice. Only problem is when it comes to emoticons.

My request: Can the stickies in the racquet section be reduced more from 8 stickies.

I would like to request high quality JPEG viewing options because for some reason I can't see SFrazeur's avatar.

Ummm That is his avatar I believe.

And TP knew that.

TP: You're still a punk.

Agree, 4 line sigs are reasonable, i definitely agree with increasing max image per post.

Or we could just have one type of raquet and string:idea:

You could add custom profile fields for string setups :P

Anyway, good to see that they have touched up the header. It was much needed.
