For those who have signatures switched on, each members signature will only show up once per page now, no matter how many posts they make to that thread.

It is once per PAGE so if you have a post on a page of a thread, your signature WILL BE SEEN, it's just to avoid too much repitition of signatures (esp larger ones).

Hope this is a happy compromise.

:)

Noted. Seems quite a good idea. But as LMB says, the same space is being used. As you're not one to miss a trick, Paul, are you perhaps thinking about that one?

It's not so much space, as "noise" and also code and loading time related.

The "space" is because of the information below your username, not because of the removed signature.

I think its a bit of a shame to be honest Paul:(

people put a lot of effort into their sigs and I love seeing them, its helps to know who has posted easier. I know you have done this as some users complain about down loads time, and I totally respect your decision to this.

I too have to use dial up at times, but then I turn sigs off. Shame that some peoples complaining have to put an end to sigs on ever post as they are too idle to turn them off:(

A lot of people like to see the sigs, but don't like to be overpowered or have to suffer longer download times at the same time. This will hopefully be a good compromise.

I have 1mb broadband, but still find a lot of the sigs get a bit much, especially the ones that list all the MINIs details, when there's a MINI profile that we've worked on for just that very purpose.

We've made a lot of appeals to get people to keep their sigs in check, but as they're generally ignored, and it's hard to "police" so many members, it was decided to give this a go.

I don't like this new feature. If you return to a thread half way down, you just see a great swath of white if (like in NE regional) most people are regular posters.

Also, I disagree that it makes ANY difference to download time. Any half decent browser should cache the first sig and simply repeat it, so all you are saving is a few <img src ...> bits of text.
If you must make this change, please consider having it user-configurable so I can choose to have pictures instead of white space ...
