    I'm showing off my new sig that Chuck made me. Looking great!

    Just in time for the 47th anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival.

    Hi there, I've finally found a larger screen mobile phone for myself... my carrier , shipped it and a cover to me, for it FREE ,
    just have to pay for my plan , minutes, and taxes each month.

    Samsung Galaxy Note ® 3 (AT&T), Black | Samsung Mobile

    now I have to learn how to use it, I think I'm going to love it, with the talk to speech especially,
    larger screen, larger keyboard, etc.

    EDIT: Well, darn. I guess we can't use animated sigs here. I'll use this one then..

    You're right Chuck.

    But it seems that some users, with more posts and reputation (pretty high values), can use animated gif format as sig picture. That was a while ago but it should still apply.

    That would make sense. I hardly ever use this forum.

    Nah, that wouldn't be it. You have over 400 posts. I can't say why it is though. A Guy

    Check your profile and see sig settings below:

    Click image for larger version

    Animated GIF is not allowed in this case.

    Just mentioning since I saw some animated sigs in the past.

    I guess it has something to do with the page load performance, if we all started to use animated gifs for avatar and sig, especially this time of year.

    Maybe I need more rep? Or I might need to be more active on the forums.
