    There's currently a "Show people's signatures with their messages" checkbox. Would it be possible to add an indented checkbox under it to "Hide images in signatures"? Basically strip out all of the image/media tags, leaving only the text.

    Forum sigs are fine most of the time, but some people have large images (Even animated gifs) that distract from the conversation. I don't want to hide signatures completely, but when a thread is full of 3-line posts with 150px-tall images that have nothing to do with the content, it's somewhat annoying.

    Alternatively, the ability to selectively hide signatures on a per-user basis (Instead of all-or-nothing) would be just as helpful, as it's just a few people with those massive sig images.

    Agreed. It would be nice to have a selective per-user ignore/image-strip for signatures. That way everyone can maintain their individual style and others can dynamically adapt to it.

    It wouldnt be a high priority for myself, but i clearly see a use for it.

    hide signature images would be enough for me, some signatures just make threads too long for scroll.

    You are able to hide signatures here. However specifically disabling images isn't possible, you can however use something as AdBlock or uBlock to block images in case you wish to cancel out certain pictures.
