    Default Petition: squelch signature

    Seriously, some forum guys have charged themselves with the resposability to fill my screen with useless junk aka signature aka textwall of absurdness, there're VERY bloody flagrant cases and it seems to be a raising fashion, moar and moar of junk-quotes where someone said something about bla bla bla bla, and if guy posts 3 times in a page all you see is:

    TEXTWALL OF BS QUOTES
    TEXTWALL OF BS QUOTES
    TEXTWALL OF BS QUOTES
    TEXTWALL OF BS QUOTES
    ...
    AD NAUSEAM

    I want my chance to squelch this obnoxious behaviour, I want to either have the chance to not see any signature or individualy squelch specialy obnoxious people who don't respect my right to read interesting posts and not their textwalls of bs quotes.

    So please forum staff either give me that chance or make some serious signature guidelines because what really doesn't need a already so punished forum like this one is signature trolling, trolling in posts at least have some variety but see the same textwalls again and again and agian ... *RAGE*

    you can do both already.

    Ignore a poster :

    Click on the poster name, go to View Profile. Third option down : Add to Ignore List.

    Ignore Signatures : ( all the signatures )

    Click on the top right on Settings

    Then on the left, click on General Settings in My Settings.

    In Thread Display Option
    you have a checkbox called : Show Signatures

    Uncheck it, save and Voila. You have gotten rid of all the Signatures.

    I think you understand there are more important things Turbine should focus on ?

    So let's say we postpone this petition to 2017 when everything else will be fixed.

    Btw I'm not sure showing your squelched ppl doesn't fall under some forum laws.

    I switched off signatures, because some posts are annoying me lately. Not by content, just by scrolltensity ;P.

    My signature quotes are art, not BS.

    On the other hand if they allowed us gifs I would gladly be for disabling quotes in sigs!

    Think of it like lawn art. Sure, a stone bird feeder can be a nice piece of everyday art in your yard to make it look nice. But with each additional piece of "art" you add the slope of diminishing returns quickly curves to absurdity

    That said, there are people that clearly are intending to be that person with the crazy lawn art.

    It's true that we do sometimes get PM's and reports from players who would really prefer that we set stricter limits on signature length. Historically, we've been quite generous with our signature sizes (We're more than twice as generous as the LOTRO forums, for example.) Overall, I'd much rather that folks self-regulate their overly-long signatures, rather than impose stricter signature limits, but ultimately if there are enough folks who feel strongly about it, we may well need to set stricter limits to prevent "walls of quotes" in particular. This would have the unfortunate byproduct of also limiting how many lines of text can be entered.

    You could put your quotes into a code block or nest each of them in one quote.

    While we are at it how about people make a concerted effort to hit Reply to Thread instead of Reply with Quote. See all that **** above? That is the original post. We have all read it. (though I would swear some of you don't) I just made you read it again thinking you might need a reminder of what you are currently doing or something. There is also no need to counter a poster's every point by putting your arguments directly in the quoted body of their post. (In obnoxiously contrasting text especially) Lists are great things. They go like this:
    1. but blah blah
    2. if blah blah
    3. therefore blah blah

    Notice how the OP didn't actually put a textwall of BS quotes in and just abbreviated to make a statement. He doesn't want his or anybody's eye holes light raped.

    Nope, the permissions for that code are turned off.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    This used to work back when you were left logged in all the time but now that many of spend much of our time reading anonymously it is not as much use. I wouldn't mind if the default for anonymous was to suppress Signatures and if you wanted something different you had to log in to get your preferences.

    Yes it did

    Seems to be that for those matters there's always time to focus, at least for me lately ...
