Please remove your folding sigs.... for now.

The forums have been experiening extreme lags that come and go. We've determined the only plausible explanation is the temporary folding sigs we're using the in the forums en masse. All those calls to a remote server before each thread can load is slowing the entire site down waiting for a response.

Until we get the sig gen situated on the host server, I have to request that everyone remove dynamic folding sigs from their profiles ASAP. :(

Sorry guys, I'll try to get the real deal up as soon as my bug hunt is done and the code is uploaded.

    We broke 550 MB in data transfer for my server in 1 month. That's about 35 times more than I normally use ;D

    Keebs is working hard on the official ones, and they'll be here soon enough. Keep those heads up :fold:

    Thanks to Park for his sigs this far. They were awesome :D

    Keebs has nearly finished up the work on the generator (with help from Park and using the base provided by the ever awesome lsevald).

    So hopefully they should be good to go real soon :cool:

    Just wanted to make sure I got it right.

    Thanks Park - I enjoyed your creation.

    Thanks, Keebs. We all know you're working on it. In a strange way, I'll probably be sorry when it's finished. It's been fun (for me!) ribbing you about it.

    (Get that sig - or you're gonna have to change your name to "Generally Feebler":vimp: )
