Just how intrusive would a change of coding on the site would be if it gave the option to block a particular poster's sig?

I recall on another thread one poster made a statement where he/she had blocked another poster. While I understand this may just be refering to PMs, in the thread it seemed as if he/she had the option to not even see the offending poster to begin with once blocked on any thread.

If this is the case, wouldn't simply copy/pasting the same coding except changing it to refer to individual posters only be a clear fix rather than disturbing the site's coding altogether..?

That kind of thing is controlled by the forum software. To implement a feature like that is to actually dig into the source code for forum itself which is something you really don't want to mess around with. It's not as simple as just copy-and-pasting.

vBulletin does have a plug-in system. If any enterprising programmer wants to take a stab at creating a plugin that allows people to ignore specific users' sigs, have at it.

But please keep in mind that such a feature is probably not worth implementing in the first place. If a signature just annoys you, suck it up and deal with it. If a signature is actually offensive, then it should be changed, in which case you should talk to a mod about it. But stuff like the Nohbody's sig, while potentially annoying to some people, isn't offensive and is perfectly fine as far as sigs go.

Understandable, I just became more curious if it's possible at all. Nonetheless thanks for the info :)!!

Now to see if there's a way to make the side bar disappear just as one can with making the task bar disappear on a windows pc via plugin. :<

If a particular person has a signature that annoys you, use AdBlock. It's a plug-in for FireFox that let's you block specific pieces of media from loading, be it advertisements or images.

No simple way to do that short of editing the template itself, which probably is not on Dave's priority list.


I'm sure it's way easier to add that to that field than to say...oh iono add last.fm account, or MySpace accounts, or wii numbers or XBOX live accounts. But hey...OCR priorities. I really don't care anymore.

Oh, and before the "If you don't care then why post"

Because I can.

I remember on CF, before all the 'upgrades' they did, everyone's sig could be as tall as you wanted it, but it was in its own little area with it's own scroll bar. I don't know what it was called though.

That can actually be done with a little CSS. Something like

max-height: 250px;
overflow: auto;

Not sure on the first one, maybe it's just "height".

Personally, I think the best readability improvement that could be made to the forums would be to remove signatures altogether. Graphical and otherwise.

You can turn all sigs off in your account settings.

Yes, I gathered that from this thread. I'm thinking more in terms of readability to an anonymous guest user wandering in new to the site.

(Also, in my particular case, I never let my browser store passwords or long-term cookies 'cause I'm paranoid, so I'm typically never logged in until I decide to post something, but that's my own darn fault.)

I don't really see where signatures add anything useful to a forum, but obviously I'm in the vast minority on that issue both here and on the internet in general, so it doesn't really matter.

some of us also use sig as "add" to point people in direction of contest, website, project etc. that's the other side of the sig space that can be usefule
