We have noticed many members have excessively long signature blocks. The community guidelines state signature blocks should be no more than 5 lines, or 120pxl, total. A line or two over is not really a problem, but some signatures are well over 10 lines, some even over 20 lines.
Please take some time to look at your signature and make the necessary adjustments. This helps to keep the focus on the content of the posts.
You might consider starting a thread to cover the content of your signature.

Thank you

So like a "Is my signature okay?" thread just for members to use when they're checking to make sure that their sig meets the guidelines? If so, I think that's a great idea. It'd probably be easiest if we just created a single thread for all members to use.

No. More like some members listing their entire collection in their signature, that should be a thread. Some members keepIng molt records in their signature, that should be a thread.
No need to "check if my signature is ok".
Just count to 5 and end your signature there.
We aren't going to go looking for signatures that are too long, but if we run across them we will ask the member to make an adjustment.

Ah okay. That sounds like a good idea still.

good idea. Maybe a new sections should be made for that so they're easy to find and not lost in the general section.

One of the UK reptile forums has a facility for a dropdown box where you can list your species in your sig.

I'm just bumping this to give people chance to amend their sigs.

I get the changing our sigs to meet the 5 lines or under. But changing them for us after we've met that requirement? And not bothering to let us know you're chaning our sig for us when we're here active on the boards as you do it?

You gotta give us some freedom of expression here....

Not trying to stifle anyone's style. Just tried to help out with hyper linking and give you more space for your expression.

I'm fine with that. A notification would have been nice though :)

I posted a thread then looked at another and saw my sig and was like WTF is going on? lol

My apologies. I had done a few others as well, and lost track of who I messaged and who I did not.

Hi, I was about to start listing my collectiin when I noticed your announcement. So following an approah from @RedCapTrio, I have posted a thread with a list and then (hopefully) put a link to the list and my album in my signature. Is this the right thing to do?

Links don't appear to work?
