The return of signatures on Freedom Reborn!
« on: October 14, 2010, 10:37:02 PM »
Summary: The good news is that there is a way to deal with the signature-related problem the board is experiencing and that signatures for forum posts are coming back! The not-as-good news is that there will be a couple limitations on them...

To eliminate some board issues and keep us up and running on our server, there will be an upgrade of the way the board handles signatures and a change in what signatures can look like. The old signatures with images can cause trouble with our server, so sigs will have to be text-only now. To keep things clean, the new sigs will be no more than three hundred characters and should be in the standard font size for the board, with no use of the glow or marquee functions (the [glow] and [move] tags). The intent is to enable people to end a post with their credo or favorite quote or maybe a link to their art site or whatever while maintaining clean page rendering for the forums.

The official new policy on signatures can be found in the Forum Rules.

If you have a signature that doesn't fit the new guidelines (e.g. it has an image in it), please edit it by going to your Forum Profile Information page.
