    I'm just playing about with 'what ifs'. I was wondering what it might look like if signatures were removed in the same way that parts of posts are.

    I have now created a signature.

    All you who have signatures are missing a trick, I reckon.

    Why not flog the space to advertisers? You could rake it in! :D

    Your advertisement could appear in this space!

    Me too, anarchist that I am on the quiet.Those of you who have been granted the privilege should make the most of the opportunity you've been given.

    If you can't think up a business opportunity to use it for, for goodness sake use it for a political one.

    Actually, yes actually, I think signatures only work if they are selected at random from a list - incl blanks. One gets a little fed up bumping into the same old quotes.

    Too true!

    Happily I feel no need for a signature and would probably not bother with one if I was granted the facility.
    Though I might be tempted to use a simple "X" in a suitable font if that was possible (unlikely)

    Sadly I only want one because I don't have one. Were I to be awarded the honour I doubt whether I'd bother as I simply wouldn't have a clue what to put that didn't seem awfully like virtue signalling.

    So then I'd have to change it daily and it would become a fearful chore.

    Be careful what you wish for grumpydogwoman.
    Having observed some of their messages and comments on various forums since my arrival I am beginning to suspect that the administrators on here have a particularly wicked sense of humour at times and may choose to inflict the facility on you just to see what you do with it.

    Ah. But then @Didactylos4 I would have to avail myself of the 'has refused an honour' facility.

    Putting me in the ranks of the LS Lowrys and Nigella Lawsons of this world. Hmmmm.

    It looks like this.

    Surely you'd be better off accepting the honour so you can make a powerful statement by sending it back if TES does something you don't like, such as doing away with Personal if it gets too much like Opinion..

    Dunteachin Star commenter

    Yeah, look how Kibosh and I feigned indifference and how cheeky I was with my "you can keep your sodding signature" messages. Look what happened there! We got one...

    And it's a burden, I tell you, a burden and a responsibility.

    OK, so I'd accept it and use it wisely but, if peeved, flounce a bit and renounce it?

    You're so Machiavellian @Duke of York

    Renounce and flounce! A brilliant signature.

    Brilliant suggestion - not so much a signature as online real estate.
