I thought there was agreement that we wouldn't have signatures on the new board. I know they are not as big as those you see on mtf but they are creeping in more and more and I still think they are annoying - and irrelevant. This new board already has lots more jargon surrounding our names, looks really cluttered without having signatures as well. Will you be keeping the reply numbers to each topic Mark, that seems a waste of time too. Especially as it has the hash sign for number, far too americanised for our needs! (no offence david!)
Lots of other things on the new board are good, just these niggles stand out to me as not so good.....
Viewing of member's signatures should be disabled by default - so I don't understand why you have mentioned this.
And with the replies, are you talking about the bolded text above each post within a topic?
