Colored text in Sig?

I went to update my sig line with my new to me wee and it kept saying I wasn't allowed a third line of material. I took one away and now it says I can't use colors?

Quote:
Allow Color BB Code No
Is this a new thing and my old colored sig was grandfathered in?
Not a big deal either way, just curious.

Me too, all I want to do is update the DR's mileage?

It used to be 5 lines, now it says 2?

I realize this a first world problem, but for someone whose life revolves around color, this is kind of a bummer. Since we're relegated to just two lines, it would be nice to be able to at least use some color.

Memory is cheap... and as long as we are not able to reprogram the BBForums with color, font face or 5 lines instead of 2 lines...


Could someone please explain the rationale behind reducing the signature functionality?


And, since functionality is being taken away - will additional functionality be added somewhere else - perhaps a component in the Profile so that we can have a list of featured links (like Ride Reports or For Sale items)?

I'm sorry, I can't hear you, could you type a little louder?

Seriously, we are undergoing some changes in software. You may see some strange things for a while. Then one day, everything will be different.

Thanks to the Moderators for confirming the new signature rules:
  • No colors
  • Limited to 2 lines of text

It's a bummer, but it sounds like a temporary change that is necessary for a long-term improvement in software.
