No. What they do now if they can't do that is to TRY tricks like borsuk31 tried to do and easily get caught and banned

We would not be wasting our time resurrecting this matter if someone had the courage to do as I suggested in viewtopic.php?f=7&t=960077, perhaps?

You need a certain amount of valid posts on the forum before you may add a signature,this is to stop the spammy "I have the same problem etc"posts

It's good to know that [you need a certain amount of valid posts on the forum before you may add a signature]. Not even alerted for the whole "how many post until signature" bit.
I am lost for words!

There are several discussion topics on this forum about the rules relating to forum signatures. The rules are clear: see viewtopic.php?f=8&t=65.

The main reason that many new users to the forum use these topics is for the purposes of flooding the forum with nonsense so as to increase their post count to the stage whereby they're allowed to add a forum signature. Some of the older topics have been locked, fortunately, in order to prevent this kind of forum abuse. Here is a list of some of those topics:
It may be an idea if these topics were merged together and make the merged topic sticky. Perhaps, in that way, this would address the surprise (?) that new forum members may have in saying that they were "not alerted" to the requirement?

At the very least, the topic has been stickied! 8)

User Control Panel, but forget about signature. You will not be able to accumulate the number of posts required by signature unless you stop posting useless one-liners.

You need a minimum amount of posts before the signature feature will be active.
After 25 posts you will be able to set-up your signature in the User Control Panel.

I think it's probably a better idea to add the information into user control panel. Otherwise new member has no clue where to find the latest rule without searching for posts about it in the forum.

The rules are linked in the red box, at the top of the post listings for each forum/sub-forum and there's a very obvious link at the top of the page in the horizontal menu: Home, Private Messages, User Control Panel , Forum Rules.....etc.

Forum Signatures

Post by servertribe » Wed Mar 17, 2021 12:06 am

Hi Guys,
I am new to the forum. I've been an amateur user of Joomla for years, more a pro user of WordPress. I wanted to join the forum and try and contribute some of my knowledge. I am not sure if signatures are disabled by default on new accounts? but it appears that new members are unable to set up signatures or avatars on this forum?

so...ask questions, or answer other questions, that's how you build your post count. The forum's a two-way street.
