No-Go on Sig

Postby sherubtse » Jun 4th, '13, 13:10

I have tried to add a signature to my posts, but the software tells me that I am "not authorized" to do so.

So how the heck does one obtain such authorisation? :?

Thanks.

Best wishes,

Sadly, we had to disable the signature feature years ago due to abuse by members, bloggers, spammers ... :roll:

I will take another look at this feature.

If you decide to re-enable it can you make sure that we can choose not to display it? One of my favorite things about teachat is not seeing signatures. Really keeps the information flow clean and fast.

Thanks for the reply, Chip. I hope you can re-introduce it. :)

I'm with tenuki. Signatures are not only distracting but also redundant with avatars and usernames. Write with heart and you'll rarely need one.

Count me as in agreement with the above.

Personally, me too ... it drove me nuts with the visual interuptions after almost every post in the flow of the forum. It is nice not having the distractions that are also redundant.

Many forums I view, they are spammy anyway.

Disabling the sigs was one of only things the other mod at the time and I agreed upon. Sigs prior to that could include links, graphics, almost whatever.

I guess it all depends on what is allowed in the sig.

But considering the response to my suggestion, I get the message .... loud and clear! :lol:
