Hi Mods or anyone with power in the forums,
Is there a way to automatically put a break or some kind in the signatures?

There have been countless occasions where I was reading something, then at the end of the post, there's another comment. I sit and think, "What in the world does that have to do with anything?". Then I realize it's their signature when I see it in the next post.

I've been on forums in the past where there is an automatic break... and I've been on some where you are required to manually put the "break" code at the top of your signature.

I think this would help tremendously. I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets confused by this.

Thanks for listening.

the individual needs to do it...it can be done by simply making the first line of their sig a continuous succession of dashes, underscores, or any repeated symbol.
They could do like I do, and put their signature part in quotations, That would let everybody know that that is their signature, not part of the conversation.
Good points....but how do you convince everyone on the forum to go in and do that themselves? Cool

It'd be much easier if there was an automatic break built in.
There should be an automatic break. Most every forums I am a part of and those I have seen that I was not a part of did have an auto break. But it still an easy fix. Just add it like I do. Maybe they will change it eventually.
I understand what your sayingI end up reading signatures to thinking they are the persons response. I'm sure it was the same way with mine so I edited it. Wink
I've always felt the signature option should provide font options, etc. I once tried editing mine with HTML code and it did not work.
Your post is a perfect example of what I'm talking about, Firenze.

The first time I saw it, it actually made sense in the context of your post. Maybe it was something in the politics forum? Anyway, I saw it again in a post and it made absolutely no sense, so then I figured out that it was your sig.


Mods, where are ya? Is there something that can be done?

Find anything you want and upload it to photobucket and insert it as an image code.
I just usually put my tag line in color, but yes, when it is not obvious that it is a tag line, it is very easy to conclude that it's part of the reply. I would do the same if I were a new member. Smiler
Well, I figured out a way to keep it simple I put a signature box in between my signature name and my quote and there is no way that you can get confused about that. That should be a good way to make it work.
