That's pretty nice.

Is it just me or is the gradient a little jagged and uneven? Other than that, very nice. This is exactly the type of style I'm trying to get to grips with for web design.

I don't understand what's with all these "* user" sigs. I'm seeing them everywhere I go.

Anyways, it looks good.

No thanks. Just about everybody posting here is an ubuntu user, and most other forums don't allow images. Besides, it seems a bit like zealotry to wear one's OS on one's virtual sleeve.

*sigh* When exactly did saying, "No, thanks" become "acting like a prick"?

Yes I know about everyone here is an Ubuntu user, but use it on other forums...

And thanks everyone

Yeah it does look rather uneven.
Still nice though.

Most other forums allow you to use images. At least the ones I go to do.

Not to be sassy, but I don't understand the recent obsession with gradients. Is this one of those WEB 2.0 AJAX WOOO things I've been hearing about?

images in signatures are one of the worst things to happen to the internet. ;)

I'm serious.

Ever try going to a forum where almost everyone has one? It takes forever to load even on broadband. Not worth that turmoil.

And some constructive criticism, this image doesn't really look like most of the official artwork. The gradient isn't bad, but the stripes don't agree with me.

Sorry for not saying anything positive ;)

I agree totally. It got so far with me on some forums, that I just subscribed to the e-mail or RSS feed, and approached the forums in text-only mode. Horrible!

The stripe are part of the userbar style

No Problem, that was the point of posting it here

I always completely disable forum signatures. I don't see the relevance of reading wacky quotes at the end of every post. Images in signatures are especially bad, because they seriously disturb readability.

On many fora you can disable images in signatures or at least signatures alltogether. If not here's a greasemonkey script for phpBB forums

I agree with this. It's one thing to mention Ubuntu if, say, your friend if having spyware problems and is generally sick of windows or something, and you mention Ubuntu. But to go around talking about it wherever you go is another.
