Signature

Recommended Posts

When the new design was revealed the signatures were gone. I think it wasn't a bad thing, it helped players advertise topics that would be otherwise dead, their crew or just share their favorite topic. Should this feature make a comeback?

Eh, it's fine. Although... sigs can make forum members more recognisable, and that's a good thing, so maybe yes after all.

The powers that be have said the signatures are coming back "soon." There's no real ETA, but I personally anticipate their return. I do wonder about file size and resolution limitations, though!

Yeah signatures are really handy, especially when you are scanning a topic, as we mostly do, it helps to recognize certain member's posts.

I was really proud of my snapmatic contest win banners in my sig.   A return would be awesome.  Just my 2 cents..

If they do come back I hope they come with an option to hide them as well.

 

All they do is take up screen space that could be used by useful information and if you have one person who contribuites a lot in a thread, with a sizeable sig, then you just see the exact same content over and over again down the screen. It was even worse if they posted single sentence comments and you still got multiple lines of signature content on every post they made.

 

On 5Mods I used to get almost 3x the amount of relevant info on the page when I hid the sigs and if you're like me, where the forums are a source of info and a place to share info, more on the page is a bonus.

 

I don't mind that people have them, I know that some people like them, I just don't really want to see them.

If I recall correctly GTAForums had a limitation that you could only display a 500px by 150px signature at max. If the signatures will come back we can expect the same kind of limitations. Also let's not forget that on desktop view there is already unused space under someone's message if it is shorter than a paragraph.

People moan about size restrictions on this forum and the fact they can be pretty tight when other forums are more generous.

 

The truth is, here it's space saving due to the number of active member accounts.

Why is there not more outrage over the signaturs not making a return yet?

 

I need my sig back!  I need to see other sigs!  This is an outrage!

For those whom are really desperate you could do what some others have been doing although it's more work than it worth in my opinion.

 

Copy and paste your signature to the end of every post you make.

WHAT!?

When I look at the blank blue space below the posts I make. I shed a single tear and I drink down one more shot to numb the pain of what I've lost.

 

Somewhere out in the deep web there is a gif of a repeated loop. Two ghouls captured dancing in a Rob Zombie music video. Just sitting on a server somewhere, never to be seen again. Won't you think of them when you choose to continue this policy of inaction? We need our signatures. Let the ghouls dance again. Let there be color and motion.
