Policy Change: User Signatures

<< < (7/16) > >>

Great idea!  It doesn't hurt at all to have members establish themselves before getting total access.

Starting now (17 July 2008), users will not be able to add profile information including a signature until they have made more than 10 posts. In addition, guests to the site will not be able to view any user profile. This second restriction may be lifted in the future.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and blame the spammers who ruin things for everybody.

I know this is an old post but I just joined your site today,
and was looking for how to add profile information and this is all I've found
I alaso wanted to say that I TOTALLY agree with the policy.
In fact before converting to SMF I had the same type of policy for much of the same reasons.
I will be looking to bring back our policy like this now that I know it can be done on SMF.
Spammers suck and this is a GREAT tool in determent of those who join just to promote their crap which usually has nothing to do with what your content is.
Just my

I like the anti spammer protection.  I hate when forums are piled up with spammers and their useless info.

Once you go black, you never go green!
I hate signatures myself..
sometimes they take up the whole page and are annoying to see especially when the user has a 1 line, 4 word post, and a 1/2 page sig with huge graphics.

If I could turn it off I prob would.

Well, you can. Take a peek in the Look and Layout section of your profile. ;)
