But remember you can hide signatures from being shown in your profile settings. http://forum.xda-developers.com/prof...do=editoptions

The problem with this 'solution' is that you are effectively encouraging people to hide signatures. However ... a lot of the longer-serving members have useful links in their sigs, the sort of things that a noob should see, notice and read to avoid asking stupid questions or breaking the rules of XDA. Hiding signatures means this information is lost.

Many complain they can't see my signature hidden in spoilers.. But I can see.. And when we use xda in 2013 beta 1024 mode.. We can see.. Why is that so?

It's because of AdBlock on Chrome...or maybe because his hidden sig pic is huge.

Their signature extended takes up my full screen, which is ridiculous, I think some People don't grasp the point of a signature.

What I don't like is that I've observed people that put (LONG TEXT) signature in THE POST, tough with spoiler.. And I've seen an user with high posts count.
BUT the problem is that you just takes precious database space with duplicate/redundant data.

Signatures should be put ONLY in signature section and not in the post.

PS: the in-post signature I've seen really contains pretty long text (about used phone, rom, kernel, etc) and in most cases the signature length is higher than the actual post information.
PS2: I'm not talking about tapatalk signatures "Posted using Tapatalk". Even If I do not agree with those too, because there are work-arounds. Eg: extract tapatalk information from post's user agent [I doubt that Tapatalk doesn't send custom UA in combination of actual mobile). This way you can save a lot of DB tables space.

Really? If you don't mind, can you post a link to such an in-post sig?

:what:
That is absurd...he can't really be copy pasting all that crap into all his posts!
I still think it's his tapatalk sig..or maybe something is wrong with him.
Err..not all his posts contain that.
Either way it's not right, just report him.
I found him..but i'll let you do the honors.
