    how come we can't use markup codes in our sigs? i'm sure this has been discussed, but i must have missed it. ;)

    My guess- to prevent abuse of the codes.

    I think we should allow Colors and Highlights in sigs... but not pics, oh, and also hyperlinks that don't just display the link... (Customizable text for link)

    But colors readly distinguish regular members from mods. That might create confusion amongst those who are not familiar with the mods.

    I don't see how colors in the sig would make any difference...

    Does anyone here know how to change Snowboards code? Have at it if you do.

    Because too many people would post pictures in their sigs. The pages would take forever to load, porn everywhere, "This image hosted by Tripod" for those who couldn't figure out that remote linking doesn't always work, etc., etc.

    I don't think this board wold let us pick and choose like that, this appears to be a very all or nothing type of place.

    Sorry CtC, I didn't read your post right. I though you said in the name. It would slow down the load time though :( .

    Well, I think that it's been a case of something that zerosleep never got around to coding. Remember, we didn't get mark-ups for posts until about this time last year. Besides, as Hama said, there are some drawback to using them. I think that what we have now is really enough. It might be nice to have a little bit of colour and text styles in the sigs, but that is about the only addition that using this would really have that we don't now.

    Yeah, but then they could post a link that says: "Official Disney Home Page" that really links to "ANIMAL PORN! GET IT NOW!" And that could cause a couple people to write letters to their congressmen, and we just don't need that kind of hassle.

    But you can use them actually, RabidEwok or whatever his name was had them in his sig for some time if I remember correctly.

    It may be possible that it wasn't really the signature section of his sig, but rather one that he manually copied and pasted into every one of his posts.

    I PMed him about, he said it was markup...

    Well, it seems that he now copy/pastes it but I'm almost certain that I remember him having it in an actual sig...bleh, could be wrong.

    No, GAP, you are correct. He did have it in his sig, even when mods started saying they weren't allowed and stuff... I had no idea he'd taken them out in fact, I guess I haven't checked up on him too recently.

    If my memory serves me, we used to be able to have pic sigs back in the UBB day. (correct me if im thinking of another board, which i very well could be)

    One of Rabid Balding Ewok's recent posts has his markup code pic in the sig, here .

    edit: n/m I think he just wrote out signature and made it look like the others...

    Actually, it's a trick. You see, it's not really a signature, it just has text that makes you think it's a signature.

    Yep, I noticed that right after I posted....hence the edit *kicks self*

    it looks like his sig to me.

    The part that says "----signature-----" looks like it could not be reproduced.

    Look below!
