Signature Rules, An Overview

Recommended Posts

Ok, just to review the new rules relating to signatures:

  • New members can only edit/add a signature after they have posted a minimum of 10 postings
  • No images are allowed in signatures
  • Only 1 URL is allowed in a signature
  • Only 6 lines MAX are allowed in a signature
  • No YouTube videos are allowed in a signature

Please review your current signature, and ensure your signature does not conflict with these rules.

I like those rules. Perhaps also ban personal attacks in signatures.

I would also recommend not allowing extremely large / red / prominent text in signatures. A function to selectively ignore only specific poster's signatures would also be nice.

yes, yes I agree a limit should be made on text size. Great point Bonam.

There is an option to do that - there's an X to the right of the sig lines in posts that you can click or you can do it under your profile settings using the "ignore preferences" option.

Oh, didn't notice that. Thanks!

Personal attacks are already against the rules, so it would be redundant to specifically mention it in the sig rules.

Greg I think you have to edit your own signature.

Touché! But then again, I'm the Forum Admin, so I get to break the rules from time to time wink.png

What about in status updates? - Are insults and/or personal attacks against the rules same as on the board, or is that more or less anything goes?

An insult is an insult, no matter were it happens in the forum, it's against the rules.

I totally agree with limiting text size and colour etc. in a signature, it's pain. Which is why I use the option to turn them off, I never read signatures.

UPDATE

Markup (i.e., HTML or BBcode or whatever) is not permitted in signatures.

If you have markup in your signatures, I will be deleting them without warning. Posting forum quotes is the most common instance of this.

I thought there was a limit on the number of lines of text you could have. Moonlight Graham has about 8 lines of text, which is way over what is suppose to be allowed.

You also have colour markup, which isn't allowed. *shrugs*

I've opted not to have sig lines displayed for what seems like forever now.

I deleted mine in response to original post. I had a link to a mental hospital in mine.

Just use the box where you put the reason for an edit.  It takes a little more effort, but the effect can be interesting.
