A Forum Pitch

Ok so sometimes I am at school or at work and I get tempted to come on this forum, who can blame me, but recently I have noticed a problem, especially after the MMAFUFC game, and recent explosion of paying members.

My problem is that MMAForum is NSFW, in that its very hard to view the site when you are there, I find this is because of the very large sigs, avys and overall appearance of site.

Now Im not saying that theres absolutly anything wrong with the pictures, Im just saying I dont want to make it too obvious that Im on a forum at school or work. I just dont want my boss or teacher seeing a giant picture of Nick Diaz or big bold letters saying MMAFORUM.

So I was thinking, and believe me I know this Im asking WAY too much but, is it possible to have a work friendly template. As in all pics are disabled and the concept is very simple and concealed?

Sorry if Im asking way too much, but it was just a thought I had. Anyone else feel this way?

Good up to someones sig or avy and right click on it, and when a list of things pop up click "block images from mmaforum" and you won't be able to see avys or sigs.

yes, true, but the whole layout is still very "out there"

Im thinking about an all white layout, no banners, no avys, just very simple to disguise the fact that its a forum.

User CP > User Options.

Browse around in there and you can change stuff like no sigs, no avatars, and stuff.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Or you could just do your job

I'm sorry, that was out of the question. I've had the same problem at school sometimes so I just got rid of the avy's and sig's. It does make a big difference.

I know exactly what you mean. I'm at work and have the same problem.

I have a "Reflector Screen" (Turns ur monitor screen dark for people who view it at a different angle other than the angle of looking at it straight on) and I switchoff basically everything in my user CP. I also scroll down immediately when the MMAForum Header appears and have to do a TON of window resizing. I'm down for the idea but I doubt the user demand will shine any light on it.

Or, I can just do my damn work more often?




For long News Articles, I usually just copy/paste all of it into Wordpad or Notepad to make it seem like my own. But haven't done that much since the reflector screen.
