    Don,

    Since the system software knows the last message one has viewed in a thread, it apparently has some smarts. Why not ask the software authors for a system mod to accept a signature in a users first post to a thread and silently reject it on further posts? It could be an option set by the admin.

    Drop to a single font, limit the number of COLORs you are using and put a single "B" at the beginning (and the matching "/B" at the end and that may help ... Due to the Automated CODING function of the forum formatter, my original Default code had a number of places turning Bold on and off, when actually I just wanted the whole line bold.

    I can give folks some tips on trimming their sigs, if they want the help ...

    Well - we seem to be the only ones trying to uphold the request to trim sigs anyway -
    seems the others are gonna do what they want to do no matter what anyone here says ...

    If you REALLY want to speed the forums up, dump all graphics and code anyway -
    No one needs Avatars or colored sigs ... or ANY sigs - for some folks its just a brag list of gear anyway ...

    I'm a member at several forums that don't have sigs or avatars enabled....

    it works & people still hang out there....

    every once in awhile, people will complain about it, but it never changes.....

    The truth comes out in jest! It really does. If you stop and think about it, prior to the internet explosion, people were smarter and had to use their heads to figure things out. Now all we do is look it up online, everybody googles everything!

    What the hell would we do today if the CNC computerized sawmills shut down? Anyone remember how to use an old fashioned ruler and carpenters pencil?

    I think we're all just as stupid as we always were...just in different ways. The internet is just the perfect media for exposing it.

    Well none of this would be up for discussion, or debate if two people in particular (no names mentioned) would get along, and not voice there opinions and or attitudes in their signature. So yes it has resulted in this restriction action, and we all have to suffer. And as stated above, thanx for acting like 2nd graders.

    To deal with the first, I am changing the permissions to allow no more than two lines of text and no more than 125 characters for new signatures. If your existing signature exceeds this, please change it to meet the new rules or it will be deleted. To deal with the second, I would ask that you only use your signature once per thread, and certainly not more than once per thread page.

    I guess I missed some action earlier.

    Don's stated purpose is clear and, though cumbersome in implementation, easy to follow.

    As for the ensuing discussion, my hope is that "let's ban it" does not become the outcome to every solution that's looking for a problem.

    Everyone just ease up, and things will be okay.

    Yes, 100% agree. Which is why I deleted my post, and other than this one particular comment, am refraining from further posting in this thread.

    Actually, now that you mention it, since Don is back, things are happening. GOOD things, the forum seems to be being moved and motivated in a positive direction. At least this is what I see and feel since he is back, AND I like it, too!
