Can we have signatures back?

There are more people who do that.

I don't use a sig. if there isn't an option and as long as they disabled it in here, I don't have one.

Easy as that... or easier.

Yeah, that would be nice.

Mine would be "The mind is the bridge between the body and the soul".... I made it up myself, came up with it while reflecting on a mushroom trip.

Sounds witty, but what the fuck does it mean?


BTW, my signature would be:

"You coming to my house, Galactus?!!! You coming to my house?!!"

"Avarda Kadarva Mother-fuckers!"

Signatures are awesome but sometimes you get the really fucking long ones and you can only get like 3 posts on a page, and that sucks.

Yeah, signatures aren't bad at all as long as they're not overused. Sure make a lot more sense than user numbers or post counts.

I'd just use the lyrics of the song my name comes from.

Well I met a girl called Sandoz
And she taught me many many things
Good things, very good things
Sweet things

I met her on a Sunday morning
It was hot though the snow lay on the ground
Strange things, very strange things
My mind has wings

Sandoz Sandoz
Will you tell me "No?"
Sandoz Sandoz
Will you tell me why?
We could all learn something from your mind

She's very old yet many think she's young
One kiss from her and you know your time has come
Good times for all time Sandoz

The length sigs should have is inversely proportional to how often you use them.

If you plan to use it with every post, it should only be "peace and blessed be" ;) but if you use it with every thread, then it can be a little poem.

If signatues do come back, I think they should be limited to
3 lines like holy reality said, along with a character limit to
prevent word-wrapping from bringing it over 3 lines. As for
long sigs for new threads, they can be posted manually.

But I don't think sigs are necessary

Peace,

Neither are the t.d.n. Forums! Or Tool! Or music! Or art!

The question is not why bring back sigs but why indeed why the fuck not.

What is the reason we can't have sigs anyway?

When I used to mod a forum back in the day, we eliminated sigs because everyone kept breaking the damn sig limits so we finally took them away. Yeah, it is a pain in the ass keeping an eye on them all and it takes a lot of time away from more productive stuff. I say let us have sigs but disable them to people who habitually break the sig limits.

We had sigs for a bit, but they were disabled.

More hassle than it's worth.

I'd like for us to be able to have signatures. A limit on the size and content of course...I figure its the same as having avatars, if someone has one that is inappropriate the mods/admins usally find out quickly enough. Besides links to inapropriate sites, I don't see what could be so bad about having them. Just giving us little posters another way to express ourselves :)
