Unhappy Can't make a long signature

I made a really great signature for myself, but it doesn't seem to get displayed, even when I enable signatures in my setup.

Is there a mechanism that prevents lenghty signatures from being shown, because I notice some other signatures get displayed but mine doesn't???

Oh, wait, now it's getting shown! It popped up after I did that first post!

Is there a delay thingy that usually happens with all signatures made before you can see them?

Your signature will only be displayed if the tag "Show Signature" is "on" when you are posting a new message.

If you have one signature in your profile, this tag is auto activated when you are posting.

But it is on already, it was set to "on" sometime earlier this week.

And I know you got rid of the signature, anyway. I was only testing, dude. Besides, I've seen many other message boards allow long signatures! I'm very sure the Home Of The Underdogs forum allows it, as well.

Maybe I can shorten that signature a bit...

Signatures are already one extra for you guys who can't live without them...
But they are not design to Flood the board with useless messages.

Signatures longer than 5 lignes of text may be killed.

Why don't you go post your long (meaningless) signatures there then, Marz? You seem to be the only person I am aware of at EAB that likes gangsta rap, so what makes bad rap lyrics such a great idea for a signature?

Even lamer than I could have imagined. I will never be convinced that that signature was intended to do anything but annoy people. TROLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!

I really don't understand why everyone is against me over that long signature thing. You should appreciate the fact that there are far more offensive/violent/sexist/horrific lyrics than those ones above, and that I didn't use more controversial words.

"The Wash" really is just a harmless little song, when you come to think of it.

Exclamation

This is simply NOT the goal of one signature.

When you are writing a paper later, you never put one signature like one entire song no ?!,
same things here.

But even when I reduced to just a few lines from the song, everyone still attacked me, so it must be that there's a very anti-hip-hop stance creeping around the whole of this board.

LOL
Why do you need to write some songs into your signature ?

Song? I think that's the wrong word for it.

You haven't even heard the song, PJ, so what would you know? Remember, a rap song is judged by its tune as well as its lyrics and rapping.

Anyway, perhaps anyone else would like to quote favourite lines from songs/movies/shows whatever for their signature?

You can quote two lines of this song if you want...

But don't post *all* the song lyrics !!
What you did here was spamming, no more, no less.

That would make a better signature, since that line turns up every bit as often (if not more).

No, you should appreciate the fact that RCK has the patience he has with your non-stop, neverending pesterama. You admit in your description above, the stupid content of rap lyrics, and despite that, you think anybody at EAB wants to read any of this stuff? What is so appealing about 'offensive/violent/sexist/horrific'? Does it appeal to you because MTV tells you it's cool? And by that same rationale, you could also say we should appreciate the fact that your avatar is not a steaming pile of defecate, but the fact is, neither are acceptable and you shouldn't have to be told not to do these things. But in your neverending quest for negative attention, you do this...you're ignored, so you post a message asking why you can't save longer signatures. That way, everyone at EAB - signatures turned on or off - will be aware of the latest stupid stunt of yours.

In true deep south fashion, someone should take you to the woodshed and blister your hide with a hickory stick!

If there is an anti-hiphop stance on this board, why would you suddenly shove it in everyone's face? Hiphop never even surfaced in any conversation here until you brought it up. It appeared that nobody here likes it, so what does Marz do? He gets a rap avatar and posts entire rap songs for a signature. And poor Marz doesn't know why everyone attacked him? I know one little boy who is doing everything in his power to make sure there is always an anti-Marz stance on this board.

Usually, you separate these episodes with longer intervals between them, but they are becoming all too frequent. What will it take to make you act like a normal. responsible member of this community?

Look, if it makes you shut up, I have changed my avatar (and my signature as well). But I feel violated by being denied the ability to walk around with a Snoop Dogg pic everywhere.

Beware that this war is not over yet.

No, it's judged by it's inability to be listenable.

Why don't you just go to Homebase, get some black paint, and slap it on, because that's obviously your dream.

(...and while you're at it, close your account and leave)

Forget it, I ain't leaving. I refuse to leave just because some big-headed bully told me to. I'll only leave when I feel like it.
