To avoid the possibility of spammers posting just to show links to their site:
  • Signatures now not shown if you have under a certain number of posts (currently 10, could change)
  • If you try to simulate a signature in your post that looks even remotely spammy (like a link to some site selling stuff) it will be removed.

How many posts do you need for a signature? I have over 5000 and I don't see signatures any longer for anyone?

Did you turn them off in your profile preferences? There is an option for that. I've had them turned off for a long time now.

I have the same issue as Carol - over 5000 posts and haven't seen anyone's (mine included) signature in a week or so...  :o

Looks as if the switch is reversed.  Post a lot, no sig.  Few posts,  sig.
Could that be it?

Weird, I'm just staring at it. On the other hand, cranio's sig is not showing.

Thanks - seem to see sigs again now - not sure if it is blocking sigs for new users though ?

Heh, heh...I have been waiting a long time for this.  ;D I hope it does not get changed to 20 posts, or I will have to wait another (almost) 3 years for the privilege!
