New signature guidelines.

Yeah. My main gripe was just signatures that tried to make eyes focus on them instead of the content of the response or thread. It's understandable, I know why people do it and not everyone is guilty of it and I don't blame them for trying. But the fact is, signature text by default is smaller and lighter in color than the default text in responses and posts. For a reason. ;)
There are always those few users who have to take things to an extreme...and then they get defensive when you call them on it.The new rules are appropriate for a growing, mature community.

Disable signatures, easy.
Sadly there are a lot of providers here that post helpful information and contribute positively, though they do it also because each helpful post they make also contains their signature. I think disabling signatures would hurt the community more than help it and would reduce postings.

I think I removed the additional size limit of yours since it was larger than the default text. I think the font you are using now is making it appear larger, but it's still the default text size limit so i'll let it slide. :)

So there are signatures :) ? With my filtered life I see no signatures on vpsBoard.

This is funny to me.  Time to research how/what is getting blocked.

It's a setting in your control panel. You probably disabled it.

Right decision, because sometimes it's really annoying to see terribly huge signatures. However, I remember these 'great' times when all forums were filled with shiny image (or even gif) based signatures, it was quite funny :)

Good rules indeed, but the "Hide all signatures" option is not very good for the community, as MannDude already mentioned a lot of providers/people are posting helpful things because they could eventually gain something out of it.... and while some of you may view this as a bad thing, really think about it, it's basically asking someone to dedicate part of their time to post a helpful and meaningful post while gaining absolutely nothing in return.

Signatures are viewed in such a bad way on these forums (VPSB, WHT, LET, etc) it's absolutely amazes me that nobody stops to think that these people posting have to spare precious time to help others, basically writing content for free for that forum... content writing is not easy and it's not free... and yeah I believe a signature at the end of a meaningful post is extremely low return for that post anyway... so allowing your forum users to disable signatures forum-wide would even further deprecate the value of the signatures on said forum, and thus would make people less and less willing to post meaningful posts.

... just my two cents.

I believe this is a good rule so you can't spam and make the forums look more simplified.
