How do I edit my signature?

Post by Cynthia Moore » Wed May 05, 2021 2:35 pm

I got a couple of questions about my hardware. I thought I would put that in my signature, but I can't seem to find where to do that?

I did that, but I don't see a signature field. I see fields for Birthday, Operating System, Interests, & Occupation. No Signature field.

PS: I tried to post a screen snippet, but couldn't figure that out either. How to I post images?

Forum Signatures are only available for for forum crew. Unfortunately we had to disable signatures for regular users due to abuse.

Most of the dozens of forums I follow just disable the abusers. I was going to put details of my system ion my sig.

Yes, we did that for a few years, but as the forum grew in popularity it became a prime target for spammers. We would rather spend our time helping people to use Audacity effectively than wasting time dealing with spam.

I understand. And a lot of what many people put in their sigs is cute, but hardly necessary.

Some forums only allow things like sigs, attachments, and other features after the user has been on the forum for a specified time or has made the specified number of posts.

Perhaps you could add a field like you have for the OS for the Audacity version and any other important information about the user's system.

In any case, thanks for a very helpful forum.

PS: I just noticed that the quoting mechanism seems to work differently in this section than in the Windows section.

Hmm, yes. I see what you mean.
I'll look into it (I've fixed the quote in your previous post).

That should be working now.
