Where are the signatures?
« on: September 11, 2018, 10:04:52 AM »
Hi! In https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/ask-a-mustachian/you-don't-have-to-hustle-do-you/msg2131265/#msg2131265, one user suggested that the reader look at the content in kpd905's signature. I thought the signature would be at the bottom of that user's posts, but I don't see it. Where are they? I know there's a setting to hide signatures but I don't have it enabled.

Thanks!

So if you view this page https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/ask-a-mustachian/you-don't-have-to-hustle-do-you/msg2131055/#msg2131055 do you see just one line next to kpd905?

I see their one line post, a thin line, and then four lines that are the signature.

I took a screenshot of what I see: https://screenshots.firefox.com/chRrYyxGcCtZzaUI/forum.mrmoneymustache.com

It's the same logged in or out.

There’s a thread right above/below yours (in this moment) that mentions a poster with fewer than 100 posts cannot view or make signatures now. (Spam prevention = inability to make; inability to view was a side effect, I guess.) There, Solon also mentioned there’s a setting for anyone to voluntarily not have sigs visible.

I thought it was something like that too, but didn't know how best to ask. Thanks.

I'm so close to being able to see signatures :)

You’re welcome, VividPixels. And creating a thread was precisely the best way to ask it, yep!

How to I turn on signatures if I have over 100 posts? I still can't see them...

In your porfile settings under look and layout, there is a box "Don't show users' signatures." Make sure it is unchecked.

I'm pretty sure the 100 post thing is about not being able to post your own signature, not hiding other people's signatures. It's a spam prevention thing.

Thanks, I was wondering this myself.

^ It's uncertain, though. A moderator was under the impression the '100' thing prevented the viewing of other's sigs, but someone with <100 said they could see those. So, as far as I know this is an unknown for now. It may be an admin setting -of what values, we're not sure of yet- and it can also be a user setting (checking or unchecking visibility).
