So, I searched the forum and while there were some results, none were on point and all were ten years old, or nearly so.

How many of you do NOT have signatures disabled in your settings?

I spend way too much time fiddling with my signature and trying to advertise my (terrible) threads... but I have everybody else's signature disabled.

If everyone has signatures disabled, why am I bothering with mine?

Disabled - speeds things up nicely and gets rid of the chaff that appears. Easier to spin through a thread and pick up images and spoilers with them disabled.

Same here.

Sigs, like avatars, help me identify posters at a glance, and help when skimming threads. I miss them when on my mobile devices, as I have to double check who posted more often.

Right?

In my defence, when I first signed up to Dakka I was staying with a friend and subject to an awfully weak internet connection, so loading pics in a P&M blog at the same time as sigs took forever, so I got rid of sigs.

But that's the 'grrrr' of the thread really, to see if there's any point in even having a sig.

I keep sigs enabled. I like the (admittedly minor) insight they give into people's personalities or interests. I occasionally even find myself paying more attention to a person's posts because their sig makes them seem less of an obnoxious twit than I would have judged them from their post content alone.

40K has never had a ruleset finely balanced enough for things like 'correct base size' or 'modelling for advantage' to be worth worrying about.

The tournament mindset is a cancer on the hobby.

I've got mine enabled, since they occasionally lead to blogs I want to check out.

And in turn, mine's just a link to my blog.

This is also (partly) why I keep mine enabled. I couldn't tell you why it interests me on a personal level. It's just one of those things.

I also find that sigs are a good back up method of identifying posters, in the (not so common) event that someone changes their avatar, because I tend to use the avatars as identification rather then the username. A little odd, but that's my brain.

I did that so long ago I'd forgotten Dakka even had sigs. Do I still have one? (I'm too lazy to check. ) Also, for helping cut down the visual chaff, because when I did it, there had been a proliferation of image heavy, and IIRC, more than a few that were a long line of animated emoticons which I found massively distracting while trying to read.

Disabled so they don't get in the way of actual content. Some user sigs are obnoxious. Sigs are no better than web ads and I don't know anyone who likes web ads.

I'm not even sure what my own is anymore. It's probably obnoxious and/or very ad like.

Thanks for checking, I'd forgotten all about the 'wiping with the powerfist' hand thing. And now that Genestealer Cults are a thing, Four-Armed Emperor Day is ever more important than ever!

Mine are on, but I'm often on mobile with a potato phone that would explode if I turned on full scale Dakka... So I generally don't see signatures anyway.

Switched on, as some folks do link to good topics or have fun quotes of days gone by.

That and I feel I can't really disable them with the current [MOD] tag, as every once in a while I stumble across a bad sig (inadvertently) bypassing the swear filter or one with an outdated image that gives a security error to other users.

Switched off on my phone though, but then again I don't post or moderate from there, just to do quick checks while working should the need arise.

So, while the sample is currently small the results so far are that more than four out of five of you (83%) have sigs turned on.

I won't feel too bad for obsessing over my sig, if those numbers hold up.

I guess I'll do my best to not pay any heed to your signature since that is your preference on others' signatures!

Well, FWIW, since I opened this thread I've had sigs enabled.

Do feel free to continue to ignore mine, though.

To pooh-pooh it, if you like.
