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 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!

Perhaps also ban personal attacks in signatures.

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?

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*

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

Welcome to MLW Jack ma ma. We don't use signatures any more here. Even if your English is not very good, you can still post in the various forums. Looking forward to your posts.

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

Gee, thanks bcsapper. I never thought of that. Just for that, I'll give you a like.

      Am I allowed to put my Twitter and Facebook in my signature?

      Now that hockey is back I feel like pontificating on how we could make the game better. In your opinion, what changes or tweaks would improve the game?
      I have several ideas but I'll start with two:
      1) Division winners should not be guaranteed a top 3 playoff seeding, just a playoff spot.
      2) If we're sticking with this conference layout for now then I think the top 3 teams in each conference should be able to choose their first round playoff opponent. First place chooses their preferred opponent in the bottom 4, followed by second and third place. I think it will make the regular season a little more meaningful.
