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?
