Blood hell, another case of everybody getting penalised because of a few, just like the PM restrictions.

Why not ban the 'spammers', why do we all get tarred with the same brush?

I agree, I miss my signature......

You can still have personal links in your profile. We're looking at ways of making this more accessible and visible.

Mine didnt have links in though, why cant you just stop links???

Does this mean it's going to be another permanent restriction?
Why can't you just stop the 'spammers' from posting links or ban them? Members could report these 'spammers'.
Is there more to this recent restriction???

Steve, sig links were becoming another thing that we had to "police"... taking up time, that could be spent on more productive persuits. People were getting offended and argumentative when we said that something was against forum policy.

I think that some signatures have links that are extremely useful, and I dont look at profiles so wouldnt have seen any of those links.

e.g. say no to 0870 numbers link - wouldnt of known about that and it has saved me a lot of money.

No there's nothing more to this restriction. We looked at other ways to stop links and for the moment, it's as stated by Admin.

Thanks Emma. :thumbsup:
To be honest, I never saw ANY sigs, I always had that 'option' turned off, so I don't really know what other people had in their siggy.:roll:

Now that I understand I'll shut up :-D

OK, Nuff said :roll:

Aww

Can't you just put a block on the HTML in sigs?

The HTML block was already on for signatures.

turn off BBCode as well then...problem solved....

I don't know how this forum is set-up but on others you can set-up different things for how many posts a person has got.

Like after 1000 posts (or Solar Flare status) they can have HTML and BBcode in sigs?

Not html but yes that might be something we could look into.

Agree here. Could Solar Falres have their signatures turned back on?

Can't say I will miss them.





Witty Signature Pending!! LOL

I'm guessing thats what is getting looked into?

I just thought of 1000 posts as thats what many of the helpful peoples links were in.

People in the Flare Club can use self-promo links also you know

Tis a shame not to have sigs as some great links can be put in them (like Duckys link to mobile phone help for example).
Also a small bit of individuality. Still not exactly a killer loss, especially in comparison to having self promotion in them.

The mods still have their helpful links in their signatures ;-)

So they do but not all the useful links are in mods sigs alone.

Also is it me or can we still see everyones sigs by just clicking on their profile link?

Well spotted You can see it in the profile.

It is, to the people I'm 'speaking' to. :roll:

Anyway, back on topic, Just because one member looks at a profile does not mean everybody does who wants a 'help' link.
Let's have a look at all 9,804 active members profiles, to see if they have the 'help' link I'm looking for.:whistling: :giggle: :giggle:

Earlier in the thread, you mention that you have had signatures turned off in your CP. Just out of interest, did you not find any other members signature links helpful? It's a bit odd to be complaining that you can't see them, but at the same time don't want to look in profiles to find them and see them anyway.

Sorry for the delay in replying.
When I first joined HUKD I found some of the links useful but I have now bookmarked everything I may need.

I get around a bit on here and I like to think that people can easily find my Referral info help and ebay help post without too much hassle. I know they are 'stickies' but if you don't know where to look it's pointless making them stickies, IMO.

I get around a bit



Im sure you do steve :whistling: :whistling: :giggle:

Too right:thumbsup:, some good info in some sig's, but as always some people will abuse this option:x

Are they ever coming back?

Bryan

sorry if my signiture was but i dont think so as it was a link to image shack although that doesnt cause spamming.

Any chance of an 'official' update on this?
Are we going to be allowed to have our sigs back some time?
