Default Signatures

Okay I give, I have been trying & trying to put my signature and my little Tinkerbell back but I can't. Can someone give a little info on how to go about this? It would really help.

Not to crazy about the upgrade. Can't find a thing on here.

I think they've turned off this option. Clikc on Settings (top right) then "edit signature" (in the left bar on the settings page). Down at hte bottom is "signature permissions". Mine says:

Can Upload Images for Signature
No
Can Upload Animated GIF for Signature
No

Since everyone has troubles, I think they have this disabled for all of us. No one has answered my question in the main thread, about whether this will be turned back on or not.

Default Signatures questions

I find it distracting that signatures now appear the same as the text of a post. I did try to change mine in "my profile" but, although it offered me a whole page of colours to change, I could not find how to change the font.

(In any case, what I really want to to change other people's LOL)

Anyone?

Okay - here's what I think is happening (although I'm not a Techie and could be wrong but), your signature when you created it has extension, .png which refers to a Pingback.

When you send a message, your signature setup goes out to find the .png file and expects to receive a "pingback" - in otherwise it recognizes the signature and allows it to load.

If you look at the bottom of this page, you will see posting permissions. On the page I am viewing, it shows me that the Pingbacks are OFF. Hence, my signature file is not receiving the "Pingback" it expects and therefore, will not load.

That, my fellow QB members is what I believe is happening - IMHO

I had to take a crash course on BB code for vBulletin, which is the format for the new forum to get a special signature.

Hope it works!

It did work! Google BB code - it's the [color][FONT][size] stuff that I usually ask my SIL or 6 yr old grandson to help me with.

animated signatures - particularly those that blink and flash - were causing serious problems for members with certain vision and neurological conditions.

i know in my heart that nobody here would demand the right to make their friends physically ill just to have a cutesy-wootsie signature.

please accept the change with grace. it's for a good cause.

Default What happened to our fancy signatures?

Does anyone know if they will 'return' or if there is something we need to do to get them back? I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's fancy signatures.

I agree - I also find the large "fancy" signatures very distracting. If "space" is such an issue - which I was told is the reason for the 500 PM limit, why aren't they limited to a certain size?
