    i had curved corners on my old sigs over a year ago, so before you start getting all jolly i wouldnt go there lol

    there are a lot of old trends that have recently come back around, 1px border instead of 3px, the old mancer sigs, brush sigs (fractal brushes are being used alot recently for some reason), curved corners, C3D (recently as in like the last year, it used to be used alot for like lightning in sigs and such, now its being used like crazy for the chains and easy/shiny 3D stuff), etc.

    bring back the old school! revert back to old school grunge brush sigs! lol

    ^ Yah, movie sigs were pretty big back in the day.

    Sigs to Tags, or Sags to Tigs, or Bacon. Changing the name of signatures was fairly recent.

    I don't understand why people hate C4D signatures.... who cares? They don't LOOK bad... even if they don't take much skill. What REALLY looked bad, and took no skill, was pixel stretch.

    Hey, don't forget me, I did it too with my Love Actually tag in March ^_^ But I'm not saying anything, cause I got that fad from IFSZ, which is always ahead when it comes to tagging (they did abstract when everyone was doing grunge... seriously)

    Well, right now, I think the fads are psudo-photomanip/C4D (Where there's a stock on a BG stock and then some C4D added) and using C4D materials (which I honestly think has the same respect level as back in Grunge when we used DLed Brushes)

    Also, I hope to go and start a line art trend, anti-conformity FTW! :lol:

    ROFL. I've never really followed a trend XD. I never made a gift for girly, so I didn't follow that... I never cared about being "pro". Because for some reason, am I the only one, but I think the "pro" stuff looks like ---- XD.

    I don't think I remember anything about Bands.... but the spinning avatars were always kewl. I never thought they were "whored", or anything of the sort.

    It's not like ANYONE was able to do them ;)
