only if i can turn signatures off. to me they clutter up threads and i hide them on every forum i participate. i can see how others would find them useful, but i’d prefer to have them hidden if they exist.
Not speaking for GF, naturally, but Discourse doesn’t directly support 1990s-style forum signatures. There is a 3rd party plugin, but one must be hosting your own copy of Discourse to use it. Last time we checked, GF is purchasing hosting from Discourse directly, so probably not.
If asked, I would vote against adding them… <<shudder>>
Yeah, I probably would too. They do dress up the place nicely with individuality, but scrolling is hard enough already with the very prolific bunch we’ve got around here. Don’t really want to add to that.
It’s a good point to make. The information you are searching is very helpful.
I would rather people make a distinctive avatar. It sure helps recognition and context. I would vote that people have a l ittle more room to fill out their profiles with the meta info and personal links. The profile card could have a summary and main profile have more.
