Your honest thoughts: What's your reaction to unsolicited siggies? - Page 2

post #31 of 55
I love recieving siggies that I haven't asked for! I don't always use them, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate them.
post #32 of 55
I've been thinking the same thing Tricia!
I have mad so many sigs of my kitties I've ran out of pics.
I have been "stealing" pics from furpics to make more sigs but haven't sent any out.

I have wondered the same thing, as I am very new to siggy making! I always enjoy the extra practice! While I love looking at Maddens sweet face, doing someone else's cats is really fun too.

I've never gotten an unsolicited sig, but I think that it would be a great suprise, and if I sent one to someone, I don't think my feelings would be hurt if they didn't use it. After all, I'm usually just fooling around for my own practice and enjoyment.

Wow, an unsolicited siggy - that would be like a Christmas present! I love getting new ideas - since I get kind of in a rut. I've seen those sites before where they give you a photo and then you have a certain amount of time to manipulate that photo, it's pretty neat.

I really need a siggy but didn't want to ask any one, I put a picture in mine, but as you can see I should have asked for help and left designing a siggy to you expirienced professionals But I will donate more pics then you can use and any one is welcome to expiriment with any of my kitty pics. (I have tons of kitten pics too)

You all do a great job, I wish I had half the talent of any one of you making them (then mabey I could do dead mice cartoons )
Shall we all go for it? I've already PM'd for pictures...who else wants to join in? It will be fun to see what we all come up with!

I think a "siggy shower" would be awesome! A new thread could be started where members who want to be showered with siggies can post photos or links to their photos. Anyone who wants to design a siggy can do so & post it in the thread.

I'm a little behind on requests at the moment, but when I have nothing to work on I go stir crazy... so a thread with new material would be great!

Oh, a siggy shower is such a cute idea. Of course people should put all the geeky details like fonts, effects, blends & stuff too, ya think?

If they know about that type of thing. I usually ask for preferred colors/sayings, and big photos.
I can see I've really started something with this thread! Being somebody who changes her siggy on an almost weekly basis, I kind of thought that there must be other members who might like a variety, but hesitate to ask, or are afraid they'll offend somebody if they change their siggy, or don't use one they don't particularly like.
I get a bit bored just using Jamie all the time, and he's fed up with having his photo taken. I like to experiment with photos of other people's cats, but don't want to upset anybody by sending them an unsolicited siggy that they positively hate, but are too polite to reject.

It's a photo of a CD, a bit distorted because I changed the dimensions.

I love my siggy from cagnes but I like variety so if anyone wants to play around with mine that's fine with me! If someone would need new pics I can provide them too. I have been thinking about doing individual ones for each cat and leaving them up for a few weeks or so and switching them around like kittylover4ever's.

I have all kinds of pics for any one to play with, kittens and my babies too. Any one is welcome to use them just to play with, even if they don't make a siggy for me to use, and just want to practice, (but would love to have a few siggys to use atleast one )
I was wondering, should I start a new thread in here with pics, or put them in the furpics? Or should I just PM some to clixpix, and she can put them up for every one? I will wait to see where you want me to put them before I flood the forums with little raggie babies.

One of my favorite things when I come to TCS, is to receive a PM from Karen, open it & discover that she has created a wonderful new siggy for us.

Life is good.

I love siggys, the more the better!

You know I am in for this "siggy shower!"
post #45 of 55
I have had exactly three siggies in my time here. I did the first one with just three pics and that was that. I finally decided it was probably time for an update, and put together a different three pics into a real, though pretty low-tech siggy. It wa fine, I was happy. But it was a wonderful surprise, when I got an email from Karen with a couple of new ones, and I was delighted to have a change. Inertia has set in, though, and I haven't changed it since. I really love that siggy, and really don't know how i'd change it.
Bottom line: How would I feel about an unsolicited siggy -- delighted and honoured,thanks. :0

I love the siggy I have now, but I've had it for awhile and would love to have some variety, perhaps a couple siggies to rotate. I'd be ecstatic to recieve an unsolicited siggy.

Post them in the siggy shower thread, Cindy - you'll probably be overwhelmed with sigs.

Tricia, you have made siggies for me in the past. I bother Karen alot and Kelly and Diane also. I figure, if I ask, and your too busty too do it or don't have the desire, my feelings wouldn't be hurt in the least if you told me so. Likewise, if someone made me siggies and sent them to me, I wouldn't mind at all. I have lots of siggies made by all you wonderfully artisitic people and I try to rotate them. My problem is remembering who made what for me!

I HATE it when people are too busty to help out!


Sorry, I couldn't resist!

I'm saving my siggy's with the artists name as part of the file, so I won't be able to forget who made them!

I save photos, and then have trouble figuring out which kitty belongs to which member. My siggies are sometimes "okay", but not brilliant/artistic, so I'm afraid that some members might feel "forced" to use them, simply because I'm a moderator. I started this thread because I feared that I was imposing on some members. I'm not too good at making siggies, but feel that I'm learning, and I was basically asking for permission to experiment with photos of members' kitties, Jamie is Jamie - photogenic, but not happy about having his picture taken. I won't be the least insulted if somebody decides to reject my "creations", though I would appreciate some feedback as far as backgrounds, fonts, etc., are concerned.

I posted a bunch of pics in the siggy shower...if anyone wants to make up some fun siggy's for my LuckyGirl, go right ahead. The one Abbysmom made of her is gorgeous, but I would love to change them out for seasons and holidays! I would also love to learn how to make them... I am a naturally creative person (although not too pc savvy), and am making it a goal to figure out how to make these!
