"6) Forum Signatures

These aren't being removed, but they will certainly be changing (for the better):

  • A maximum of 500 characters will be allowed
  • A maximum of one image with a height up to 125px tall will be allowed
  • Animated GIFs will no longer be allowed--if one is specified, only the first frame will be displayed"

Bullshit.............................

lol 125 pixel high sigs. That's smaller than avatars on a fair number of sites.

Edit: I will laugh if the new GS looks and operates like Fuse.

Probably because there aren't any improvements....but they seem excited about the mess they are making....that should count for something.

I don't see anything that seems to be an improvement, but that guy with the ridiculous looking pacman thing around his head sure seems excited about these changes.

My sig already fits the bill it looks like.  I'm used to sites that have even smaller sig size limits than that.

Not thrilled about losing some of the other features...and what are we getting in return exactly?  More facebook and other "social media" integration?  Yuck.

Would it be too much to ask for them to at least fix some of the horrible bugs and frustrating interfaces that the site currently has while they're at it?

I believe it's only 125 pixels for height - they can still be wider than that or at least it didn't specify a width restriction.

Same. The glitchy forums allow me to not give a crap about forum etiquette either, which in a way is a plus as well. GameSpot is ruining GameSpot by "fixing" GameSpot. Effing GameSpot.
