    I try and stay away from seeing anything about an upcoming movie before I see it. I plan on seeing Attack of the Clones, but many of the Star Wars fans here to seem to carry stills from the movie in their signiture. Can we refrain from this, guys? Some of us don't spoil the movie for ourselves before it comes out. Thank you [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ryan, I'm not sure my sig gives anything away at all. But if you'd like me to remove it, I will change it.

    Well I do enjoy seeing other sigs (yours for example, always makes me wonder the context) but c'est la vie. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure Ryan. It could be so I removed it. I changed it to a shot that at least, as it is shown, is not in the film.

    Well, my sig picture is just from the trailer that has been played in front of nearly every movie I've gone to see for the last month, so it doesn't really qualify as a spoiler. Still, I hope I haven't offended/annoyed anybody with it. I'm trying to stay spoiler-free myself, so I know how you feel.

    Well, the first of the three's from an animatic for the movie, but even a semi-spoiled person, I know where generally in the film it is, but not it's context.
    I don't really think the stills used in sigs so far are too spoiling. If they show new characters, or had Darth Vader reaching out with "'Luke, I am your father!'" in colored text below it, I could see your point.

    I like looking at people's sigs and haven't seen one yet that spoiled a movie for me.

    Obi-Wan wielding a blue light saber is not a spoiler, but I will comply with your wish to remove my signature pic if you consider it spoiler material. [​IMG]

    I don't think that's spoiler material Tom. I think he means an obvious pic from a scene in the movie, where you could tell something from the pic alone. Your's doesn't qualify.

    Hmm, what does Paul have? Forgot about that one.
    [​IMG] Sorry Paul. How could I forget that pic. One of the main dudes in AOTC that has me excited.

    Personally I like them. I do think they are a little to large. After reading the forum rules I removed my Spider-Man sig because I felt it was to large.

    I think Frank is right, some of you guys need to resize your sigs. [​IMG]
    Anyway, I turned off sigs. [​IMG]
