Topic: Forum signature

I was wondering if it would be possible implement a user signature for everyone, since there already is enough space to host one in every post:

My suggestion is to not have a traditional text+image signature with links and all that stuff, but just a single line of text, limited in the number of characters, and colored in a dark gray so that it doesn't draw too much attention or obstruct the view while scrolling down a topic.

That way everyone could have his favourite movie quote for example, or a statement about the best movie or character or director or whatever.

I think that way you could have a bit more of a personal touch without bothering other too much smile

I think my line would be

"Where is Rowan morrison?"

Re: Forum signature

That would be something to talk to Meh about.

Re: Forum signature

we used to have them, but they unfortunately went the way of the do-do

Re: Forum signature

We did have them, but that goes back quite a ways.  You used to even be able to use gifs as signatures, but I guess that they were really bogging down the forums so Meh removed them.  I would assume that they wouldn't be as bad if they were only text.  Send Meh a message, that is usually the best way to get ahold of him.

Re: Forum signature

I'd like to have them, add a bit more personality to posts.

I love your quote by the way big_smile

Re: Forum signature

I think people abused them, I remember they used to have links to spam websites and other than that they were virtually useless.  It would be cool if we saw them again, though

Re: Forum signature

Yep, they went way overboard (and yes, I was one who did so).  They were nice, but if want to put up something besides your post, put it on your website.  Which you can list under your avatar.  (See left)

Honestly, in my opinion, tags are just an annoyance.  If you have some overarching message, write it every time in your posts.  Or get a mod to change your avatar's status to something you want.

Re: Forum signature

That's why I opted for a single line of limited text in dark gray that fits in the same line as the quote / edit / report links

My Avatar Status already changed, although it doesn't reall fit there, right below McHattie. "Zombie DJ" would be better, but we're on the way big_smile
