    Only once. In a car park near Amsterdam. I'm older and wiser now.

    @kibosh We did a lot of mickey-taking, grandstanding, rattle -throwing, pouting and feigning indiference. All for laughs.
    But we really, really wanted one...

    It's an ironic time of year for this to be topical, since it reminds me of my childhood in the run up to Christmas. With five kids to buy presents for, there was no way that my parents could run to the shiny new toys that single kid families could.

    On occasions though, I might be lucky to be given one of those shiny new toys, once they'd gone out of fashion and the shops were knocking out at bargain prices to be rid of them.

    I expect the same thing will happen with signatures. I'll be deprived of one until they are old hat and TES can't get rid of them for love nor money.

    If I am interpreting your 'like' correctly, DoY 'gets' it. Thank F. And thanks. I really was starting to have doubts about 'the banter' 2 weeks ago.

    No, I was playing 'let's pretend'.

    I've got one now, I played about with it last night (freaked-out lindenlea by accident - sorry) and prior to that had a bit of a laugh. I probably won't be using mine unless I think of something really ironic to do with it. I think the whole idea of a siggie is ludicrous. It's so patronising and absurd it takes my, normally quite high absurdo-meter, to vertigo level.

    And that wasn't a reference to Siggie Summit.

    @Duke of York Only being nosey because a former fellow student became an artist. He specialised in chalks and was wondering if it was the same person?

    Ah. I see. Beneath the banter and badinage entre nous, I thought I detected an aroma of siggie envy. I wanted one - I'll come out and say it, loud and proud.:D And now I have one.
    You could always nominate someone and donate yours.

    It's all very 'them and us'. Quite silly. Every poster should have one, no question about that.

    Thanks for understanding, dunmoanin :D It IS as you have said. And it WAS pretend envy, but with a tiny bit of real want mixed in. Tiny though, and that was more to do with curiousity than anything else. Like never having had a football, seeing someone play with one, not wanting to own my own football but still wanting a wee 'shot' of it regardless.

    I WILL nominate some people. I have a siggie and for now I'm doing nothing with mine as a form of protest: I really do think that all should have one, or none should. The whole siggie situation is hierarchy creating and one of the things I love about this forum is that we come to it without externally appointed badges of authority.

    It's all getting a bit Celebrity Jungle. You shouldn't have to eat a koala's bumhole to get a siggie.

    Didn't realise you hadn't got one lindenlea. (Never was one noted for my observation skills! ;))

    I doubt it, Lara. My friend specialised in urine and never mentioned chalk once in my recollection, other than in a discussion in than in a passing reference to what would be involved in the digging out of his garden to accommodate an extension to his house.

    Dear Messrs Saatchi and Saatchi

    Go to the Devil - the nature of your game puzzles me and I have no sympathy for you.

    Yours sincerely

    I won't (in spite of my earlier joke)
    I have no doubt that there will be some amongst the contributors to the forums who truly do deserve some recognition of their efforts on behalf of the site and its members but the award of a signature seems a pretty paltry and fairly nonsensical way of noting their efforts.

    I intend no insult to those who have them already
