    A few forum members have awfully long signatures. Sorry but I find this very annoying and distracting.

    It would be nice to have a feature that limits the number of lines that a signature is allowed to be. A signature should never be more that 2-3 lines, 4 at the most.

    Maybe a better feature would be able to block signatures of other forum members. Frankly I rarely have an interest in the signature of other forum members.

    I would sure hate to block the members that have long signatures but if that is what it needs to come down to I might do just that.

    Who needs signatures especially reading them and especially, the same info all over again every day.

    There is blog with sidebar on this forum, no need to have a signature.

    Not a fan of excessive signatures either.

    2 - 3 lines should be more than enough.

    Yours is not that bad and it provides information. There are at least one or two on the forum that are over the top and are of zero value.

    Personally, I don't think this isn't a very important topic to delve into.

    And, no, there isn't such an automated feature in AAC. We'd have to enforce it manually.

    Live and let live.

    How about "Amebas dont build houses" then?

    It's from Akira (a cartoon animation).

    Dr. Killjoy, the second line of your new signature lacks an 's', if I may say so.

    I'm glad this was sorted out on a user-to-user basis. Was this what you wanted, spinnaker?

    It is not polite to point the finger and not to say who it is. ( IMHO)
    We are all good people so I tend to say what needs to be said. If one agrees, good. If not then leave it.

    Hello,

    At the moment jrap (our administrator) has blocked the ability to edit the signature for new members.
    As soon as the postcount reaches 10, the blockade is removed.

    I tend to ignore the unimportant, but that signature was a bit distracting.
    I kept finding myself reading part of it before realizing it wasn't part of the information I needed.

    Thanks for fixing that.

    More likely, the site should limit signatures to 2 or 3 or 4 lines.
    I assumed there was a limit when I made my signature and kept it short, just in case.

    Guys, if you don't want to see signatures, why not turn them off?

    Granted, you won't see any signatures at all, regardless of how long or how short they are, but if something in a post draws your attention to a signature that you can't see, then turn them on, see the sig, then turn them back off.

    I have a slow internet connection at home, so I generally have signatures, avatars, and images turned off when I'm there.
