Hi All,

I was wondering if a feature to allow Forum Signatures could be added, it wouldn’t have to be anything fancy but a couple line text-only signature.

I always like to add a thanks at the end of every post, as it adds a personal touch to it.

Thanks, Andrew

I think the hindering issue with forum signatures on Envato is the possibility of promotional abuse with links everywhere to portfolios and latest items.. That’s the thing that was frowned upon..

If it were possible with links disabled, I wouldn’t be against it, but it could create a bit more repetitiveness. There would have to be an individual choice to view or hide others’ signatures, and the font size should be smaller than the rest of the post..

But hey those are just my 2 cents :)

My opinion? Absolutely not.

Why? Because it reminds me of all those other forums with giant repetitive signatures that really have no point. I think we already have a signature of sorts (the avatar, name post count and “achievement” icons on the left). I like the simplicity of the forums around here. It’s more about the conversation and less about random, most likely useless, information.

Just my 2 cents though. :)

I agree…who would want to see “Thanks, Andrew” over and over again. I think it would be beneficial if we could just change our screen name.

I totally agree with xmdsys – I’m sick of seeing huge images shouting “I’m gonna kick your azz l00zer!” Come on, this is Envato, want some signatures, try Proboards :P

Yep. I agree with the others. It’s not necessary for a forum like this. KISS !

I agree with everyone else as well, what we have now is sufficient

I for one would like to see thread reply notifications & sales notifications
