I can see it. Can't read it...

Wait, I had to edit the image, but got most of the message.

You can have anything you want in your sig, as long as it follows the rules. That is, no attacks on anyone, no links to illegal content, nothing generally offensive (that is, no shock images or anything), and the signature must be less than 200 pixels in height. If you want to have hidden text or something, it too must conform to these rules.

Incidentally, subliminal messaging (in this context) is pretty much pointless.
good bye

What's this even say, anyway?

I can't read it. And I'm too lazy to be bothered to change the settings to read it.

I'm not so fund of subliminal messaging. There's a reason why its illegal to do this normally. So I don't see why we would allow subliminal messages regarding its content.

For those of you who don't know what the power of subliminal messages do, here's what they do, and why they are illegal:

Subliminal messages are messages that flash between orndinairy images. These flashes are so fast that you can't see them with the naked eye. Because of this, your subcontiousness will see this. A sideeffect is that your subcontiousness will start to believe this to be the truth. There has been experiments where there were advertisements in subliminal messages, like: Beer from brand x is the best. You are thirsty.

After such message most went for a drink, and some even went to get this speciffic brand.

It doesn't matter what the message says, its illegal because it allows you to alter someone's mind.

So, no. I will not allow this.

This isn't actually subliminal messaging, it's just a hidden message. (Also, there's very, very little empirical evidence for the efficacy of subliminal messaging, anyway.)

I don't really believe in the power of subliminal messages, either... I also don't believe you can use them to control minds. xD
Besides, LPChip, how do you think you can forbid those if you can't even perceive them? :P

EvilJirachi is asking about harmless subliminal messages.  Not things like "go buy beer from brand X," but rather things like "from now on, you like monkeys."

And yeah, they're not actually effective.  And that isn't actually a subliminal message.

I guess we'll just have to stick to superliminal messaging then.

lol. XD It's pretty much the exact opposite of subliminal messaging. It's staight out yelling, "Hey! Buy this product even though you clearly don't want one! :D"
