Howcum everybody gets to have a sig except me? Am I being punished for something? In the sig entry thing it says my sig can be "up to 0 characters". That's not a lot.

I also notice that my "Add signature to this post" option seems to be checked by default.

Thanks.

If you read around the forums a bit you'll find that FL1 has changed their policy and is eliminating siggies...if a person tries to create a new, or change an existing signature they are blocked in just the way you noted. The bigger picture signatures were taking up too much band width.

We have disabled the signature feature due to it being abused by several users. When a user posts a 50k photo for their signature, for example, and 100 people open a thread that user has posted on, that is 5,000k of our bandwidth that is used. On top of that, if they post several times on a thread, that amount of bandwidth is significantly increased. Now imagine they have posted 1,000's of times. You can only imagine the bandwidth that is wasted.

On top of that, it is annoying and cumbersome to read a thread littered with signature photos.

Aw, shucks.

At least you get to keep YOUR sig. It's a good one!

I guess I'll just have to start writing one in.

I had a siggy and could change my url in it at any time but I made the mistake of removing it to change my photo. I was not thinking cuz I could have done the same with the photo. LOL Now, I can't do a small siggy like I had. LOL
