Like a thing where it automaticly puts a picture,sentence,or phase at the end or bottom of a post? I say it would be a great feature for CV. Call me lazy but i hate having to copy paste my sig every time i post and when i need to copy paste some thing else i have to go back and find it in a old thread. And what if i forget? I think that alot would agree with me here that CV need this. How long would this take to put in?

It wouldn't take long, if the server databases aren't mangled much. I know from experience with database and website programming, this sort of thing wouldn't be too hard to implement.

I second this motion. I want signatures.

No. Signatures waste up space.

Meh. I've never really liked signatures.

Then make a limit; say, 500 characters, and 2 images of 500 pixels or less height total. That would allow you to have a cool signature but not take up half the page.

and? if you do not want to look at it you dont have to. ( not trying to sound like a jerk there sorry ) i have one of these on another board and it works great, and have the sigs. are preaty big but after awhile you get used to ingoring them and i find that if your in a group ( Like ViNeRsAuRs( witch could use some new members )) it would make every thing alot easier.

Any mod/staff if i can get enough people to sign can we put it in please?

also there should be a limit to how big a picture can be

#7 Posted by YoungJustice (6670 posts) - - Show Bio

It takes up space on the page. It would take forever for someone to scroll down a page if it's littered with signatures.

Because they look ugly on this site. Signatures look decent on some sites, Comicvine is not one of them.

@YoungJustice: then why can't we do this

We can do it if we want.. There is no rule against it. There just isn't a feature that allows you to set it up anyway besides manually.

I've never seen the point to signatures. When you post, it shows your user name above your post.

Gotcha. I think that's kind of a waste of space. Pictures as sigs are cool or funny the first time, but if you get 2 users going back-and-forth on a thread, and 15 posts from 1 user with a pic sig, it gets annoying. Plus you have the icon image on the left every post. <shrugs> Sorry, still don't see the point. ;)

I've gotten used to no sigs. At this point I'd find them annoying. You have a completely customizable avatar and blog-space, I don't see why you'd need sigs.

It looks like a good group and all, but it's something everyone should be doing as a Viner anyway. As long as you're having fun with it, I'm down with the Vinersaurs.! :D

...I just don't have time for the ranking, group activities, etc. ;}

Mine I use in everything, and its there for a reason. Also it is not automatic, I type it every single time. One of those things you just keep doing out of habit.

Have an optional signature with a limit so it does not take up too much space. I think that is a great idea.

I think sigs for mottos would be cool, maybe only 200 characters. No pictures though, those are annoying.

no pictures, and you can only use one line of text.

#44 Posted by IrishX (2306 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm on a good amount of other forums and this is the only one that doesn't have signatures. I personally like them as they show a little bit more about the individual.  
 
That said most other sites don't give your own personal page like they do here on ComicVine and that is quite plenty really.
