How do I add a sig to my posts? I can't find the option.
You need to make at least five posts before you can add a signature to your posts.
Where is the menu for a sig? I just made 5 posts, and I can't find it in the control panel.
The forum automatically applies usergroup promotions once every hour. When the next promotion interval is reached, you with then have permission to add a signature to your profile.
In plain English, just wait an hour and the option will be made available to you automatically.
It's available now.
Thanks. Is there any way you can tell us that during registration because I wouldn't have known this until i saw this post.
Thank you for another helpful suggestion. I've added this information to the welcome pm that new users receive upon registration.
Tony, is there are way to register where the posts are made? That way people won't just post 5 times quickly by saying "First" and such? I mean, you could just ban hammer them, but that would be sadness all around. That said, I like the idea, no "Why don't you buy sports equipment" posts in this forum will be great!
Unfortunately, there's no way to control where the five posts should be made, nor their length. That's a limitation of the software.
The good thing is that anyone who is really interested in being involved in the community won't have a problem making five posts. This precaution is primarily to deter professional spammers.
By the way, it's rather amazing how many spammers have been trying to get on to this site. Each day anywhere from 5 to 10 spambots attempt to register. Sometimes far more. And this is for a forum that hasn't even been publicly launched yet!!!
Thankfully these bots are pretty easy to outsmart.
Fight those spammers Dragon! Hold your ground!
