    Anyone else annoyed by these? They just take up space and result in fewer posts displayed per page, hence more pages, so reading threads takes more time.

    And mostly they are just nonsense that no one would care to read more than once, if that. Mule's sig might be the only worthwhile sig I can recall. And he uses small font at that, so the space used is minimized.

    Right?

    People should really take a few moments to explore the options at their disposal in the user control panel.

    How does it result in fewer posts displayed per page? :confused:You can change the default options for displayed posts. They go by posts per page not characters in a page. :cool: Take the advice offered and disable signatures. If you want to see a person's signature go to their page and under "About Me" tab it will be displayed.

    When signatures are disabled you don't see anyone's, including your own.

    Right after we appoint an unhelpful response police. :wink:
    Thanks, I wasn't aware of that option.
    Thanks for the info on posts per page, I just changed that as well.

    No sigs and more posts per page = faster thread reading!
