Is there a way I can add my own signature on here? I heard that it is in USER CP but the option isnt there ...

It may take time after reaching the 5-8 post limit for it to allow you access, this is because the process runs in the background.

And when you have enough posts, you can edit your Signature in the UserCP (on the left hand side called "Edit Signature").

Or just click here : Edit Signature

People / Bots were Posting generic messages, like "Thanks this is great" or in some cases, actual responses based on words in a thread. The post it's self was not spam (although pretty pointless), but the users signature would contain 3-4 links to an online company of varying levels of trustworthiness.

We used to find one or two of these bad boys a day. Because they didn't create new threads, nor did they make it obvious to the casual observer, they were getting away with it.

I have not seen one of the so called "signature spammers" since the rules were put in place.

Thumbs up
I had the same question...this is an excellent way to manage spam users. Good job, looking forward to delving more into this forum and getting a signature!

Ya the post limit thing when you start a new account is a good idea to keep the spam to nothing..
