I Need To Know : Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Can we please get rid of signatures.
No one cares about reading anyone's signature, EVER.
Or at the least put in an option to not see others people's signatures.

Its extremely annoying trying to read through a thread constantly wasting your time accidentally reading them.

I personally find the signatures quite interesting.

If you find them bothersome; just ignore them and don't read them.

"OOhhhooo....I'M GON' TELL MAMA!"


That's Dee from What's Happening, right?



I don't know what they have to say. It makes no difference anyway. Whatever it is, I'm against it.

LOL......You are so good! Yes....that's from Dee of "What's Happening."

I would laugh every time she would say it; because I remember while being the oldest and the only girl growing up with four brothers; I would yell the same thing at them if they were getting into things they had no business.

Years later, I read a biography written by Dexter King; second son of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The book is entitled.....'Growing Up King,' about his life, and personal observations watching his father fight for civil and human rights.

He shares how growing up with his brother and two sisters; if either one of them did something they were not supposed to....they would yell at each other.....OOhhhooo....I'm gon' tell mama!

So....I just had to use it as my signature...LOL!

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I grew up watching What's Happening!! when it originally aired and in afternoon reruns in the late 70s and 80s. I own all 3 seasons and the first season of What's Happening, Now!! on DVD.

I noticed that Antenna TV started airing it again at the beginning of January, but haven't watched it on there since I have it on DVD.

I always loved this show, it was hilarious. It was also where I discovered the Doobie Brothers and I've been a fan of theirs ever since they appeared on the show.

I have the seasons on DVD too.....and I binged out when I first got them...LOL!

The Doobie Brothers episode was one of my favorites.....and so iconic!

I Need To Know


What exactly do you need to know? Your post belongs elsewhere e.g. The Sandbox, The Soapbox, The Watercooler.

That's a weird signature dude

Here, here! Completely agree. They are distracting, annoying and usually add nothing to the post. At least can they get rid of animated emoticons in signatures? Hard to ignore those.

Or, could they just add an option so a user can "ignore" signatures and then they just don't appear?

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I've gotten in the habit of not reading the last line in posts. But this backfires when a poster does not have a signature, and I end up missing their last line. So now I think signatures should be mandatory.

genius!

Perhaps all signatures …

... could be automatically defaulted to italic script, or something similar.
It does seem like making a mountain out of a molehill, however.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I agree they should be in italics, personally I find people writing in blue worse because it looks like a link but it is not.

And while we are at it, get rid of avatars.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Added one just for you. If you want this idea to be considered post it on http://getsatisfaction.com/imdb

Don't Click This >>> https://youtu.be/zbJjvt6bbQ8👊

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I agree with whoever said they should be italicized or at least separated in some obvious way so you KNOW for sure they are a signature.

Oops I'm ticking off whoever said signatures in blue are annoying because they look like links but aren't linked anywhere. Sorry about that, but I prefer to have them stand out as separate from the main body of a post. I don't like the way some of the other colors look on the light blue color scheme of the boards.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I can see what you mean, if someone wants to suggest on http://getsatisfaction.com/imdb that signatures be in a blue bar at the bottom like the blue bar at the top with the thread title in it id back it

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I always kept my signature in blue text until I changed it to my current signature. Since it is 99 characters long and IMDb only allows 100 characters, I couldn't include the markup tags for making it blue text.

I do always try and hit enter a couple times after posting so that there will be a space between the post and my signature, though.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Would there be a way to make a signature pink?

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I don't see a pink option. Purple is the closest.

[pink]I don't see a pink option. Purple is the closest.[/pink]

Or RED, I guess.

Now to see if it worked

I haz a red signature

Chicken leads to Egg.
Egg leads to Omelette.
Omelette leads to fecal urgency.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Everyone should just stick a couple of underscores before their sig.

Or use dashes, like I do.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Actually, I've seen some good ones. Mine is a quote from a movie, and I'm rather fond of it. I put it in bold and I always drop it down several lines so that it won't be confused as part of my reply.

Worst Signature ever.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I propose that IMDb make a signature box so we'll know where our posts end and the signature begins.

Thank you in advance for ignoring my suggestion IMDb.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I've had my current signature for like 4-5 years now.

I'm writing this signature in bold so people know it's a signature

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I've blocked people for the sole reason of not liking their signatures. The logic being if they like the same movies I do, then I have to put up with seeing it every other other post.

Do you dye your hair a different colour each day too? Duct tape registration plates? Bet you even try to get your neighbours evicted because they've had that same number on their house for too long

I wish! My neighbor is a dick. But if you have the power to control what you see and don't see, why not use it?

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Great news - we'll just get rid of the board altogether.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

Imdb can't cope with disapproval of it's pimps.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I guess you got your wish. No more boards or messages means no more signatures.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

That's what I was gonna say, but you and jnorgle beat me to it.

The IMDb Boards end on Feb 20!
Farewell to you nice people out there! You know who you are.

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

They're all going to be gone in less than 2 weeks if everyone here on the boards doesn't get in gear and help try and stop it's removal! I've been furiously pasting info about the impending demise of these boards all over smedia and elsewhere. You all need to do likewise!

Re: Can we PLEASE get rid of signatures

I used to always forget there were signatures on here and wonder why someone was talking about how they enjoyed a movie and then suddenly say "life sucks and then you die"
