Ahoy all,

I have noticed this for  a while now,but was wondering whether its just me or everyone else is experiencing the same.
That is, no signatures at all,I tend to just read peoples posts and figure who's the author just by the signatures. not really necessary,but fun. big_smile
Haven't been seeing those though,and can't see a way to change them in my profile,either.
So were they removed intentionally due to fixing issues with the sight,or is it some sort of bug with the forum. or is it just me?

Oo, it is bad.
I like signatures because these are fun.

Yeah, maybe I'll find a way to enable these without getting complaints from Google that we are an adult site (which makes the website not suitable for minors). Signatures were displayed even for banned users, which is a bad thing, obviously.

HMMM... this is sort of an adult sight, considering the spattering of profanity that can often be found on here. Just sayin!

That's... not what "adult site" means.
Can these particular signatures be edited by mods, or the posts deleted, or in the worst case, the offending signatures filtered?

As far as I know these forums have never allowed signatures. At first I was disappointed, but after a short while, I grew to like it and now turn off displaying signatures in all the forums I frequent. Some people can be a bit long winded in their signatures.

I also turn off displaying in message images and avatars since I can't see either of them.

In the end I end up with a much less cluttered display of the forum.

Please bring back signatures.

Actually, there should indeed be signatures. I didn't realize they were disabled myself since  usually have viewing of them turned off to speed up reading of the forum, though I will go and occasionally check someone's signature in their profile.

the one issue is I suspect  sander and Richard disabled the extention when the forum was having crash problems (the same time  private messages were disabled).   We will make sure the  sigs aren't causing problems, then hopefully they'll be back soon.

I'm against having signatures because in those forum where they are allowed most signatures devolve into advertising.

Thankfully, most forums also allow members to turn off displaying them.

Well as I said, you can certainly turn off displaying of sigs here if you want, I usually do for speed purposes.

As for advertising, well most members I believe use phrases, poetry or songs (mine is a couple of lines from a rather pretty 19th century poem),

Some people do  use their sigs as a convenient place for downloads of things they've done, eg their games if they are a dev, (one member has a link to a rather exceptional manamon walkthrough in his sig), however since those are usually things people probably would want to know about anyway it's not such a major problem, and if you don't like them you can always turn them off.

Yeah, to think we are getting a generation of users that have never heard about this forum's signitures. They tended to be good reads at worst in my oppinion and rather convenient at best. I rather did like yours dark. I think I remember a couple of users had book of Mazilla references. Ahh, good times. I do understand why they were turned off, though. Though, then again, spambots seem to leave their rather adult content in a couple of posts instead.

Thumbs up

Well hopefully they'll be coming back soon.
