I was just curious whether people like what I've been doing with my sig: giving something that happened on that day in history, as well as a quote from somewhere (mostly songs) that I like for whatever reason.

I ask because I do it for anyone who's interested, and I actually do put time into it.

So: do you like it? Hate it? Ignore/don't notice it? Other?

Let me know.
But if the chance remains
to see those better days,
I'd cut the cannons down.

imabench, No. I like the idea though.

I used to have a rose as my avatar. Its color would change depending on my general emotions.

Ha, yeah. I've been doing it for about 2 weeks now. I just thought it might be interesting for people to see something interesting when they stumble on a post of mine.

Not this avatar, may I add.

DJ, I forgot to mention that you could also change your avatar to include the person of your quote, or the general image of an event (like the first-time air of Friends).

Am I DJ, now?

And yeah, I'd consider it. However, that might take a little bit TOO long. Sometimes I'm too busy and only have time to just quickly get the sig updated.

Sorry ma'am, I tend to use terms from images I formed in my head. (Imabench said DJ above my post.)

I don't get the quote.

All they are are quotes I like--whether that be because they're stuck in my head, I find literary merit in them, they're just cool, whatever.

Basically, there's not much to "get," really. Although, as you'll see coming up, I try and coordinate the quote to coincide with the event.

I like the idea. Keep it up DJ!

Correct, actually.

Well, not totally. I WAS going to update that thread every day, but then I thought "People would see this more if I sigged it."

Add that to the quote of the day I was already doing (and no, I never took the idea from you Ober. Besides, my quotes are from everywhere, not just from this site. And daily, too. Not weekly.
But if the chance remains
to see those better days,
I'd cut the cannons down.
