It only works ok if you know what to do to block the dragons. But if you don't know then it doesn't work and you know as well as I do that we do have a lot of users that don't know or would need directions to block the dragons. And since it is only the dragons in the signatures that cause the problem, why not just have everyone who have active dragons (Rick and Kris do not) remove them and then the problem is solved for good for everyone using MR.

That's because they kept dying on me, which was depressing, and I don't play games to get depressed. If I want outright depression, I just read some of Wolfie's posts .... always such a buzz kill.

Aww, Come on guys,

I know I am fairly new to MR, but Wolf has a perfectly valid point that others seem to be trying to get around.

Simply, i you have a link to dragcave in your sig, then (on occassion) your slowing the site down to almost unusable rates.

If your sig has a static link, then your fine.......

Yes, there ARE ways around it, there are other options, but do you really want a 'casual' visitor to think the site must be full of garbage 'cos it's so slow and just move on somewhere else?

MR is a great site with a great rep in the community, lets do our small part to keep it that way, and if that means modifying sigs to remove something that is causing a problem, what's the harm?

You al have other options for hosting your dragons too.....

Could people perhaps content themselves with ONE dragon? It's when someone has 183 of them (mentioning no names ) that it really gets slow.

I had a graphic in my signature that for some was slowing things down. I was asked if I would not mind removing it. I did so and that fixed the problem. Now why is it that the dragons HAVE to be in your (You know who you are) signature as real-time dragons? You've seen that people are posting that they slow down MR. So why not remove them? If you do not want to remove them, can you give us a good reason why not?
