Sig files & the 5 line rule...

by KarlWarren 11 replies
I notice someone got an infraction warning for breaking the sig file rule...

the problem is, the sig line anchors to the bottom of the text in the post,
if the post is only one line it will appear directly below it.

Now, it is possible that the sig might look like it has more than 5 lines of white space below it - this is caused by the profile info to the left.

If reporting sig file violations, please be mindful of this.

Kindest regards,
Karl.

      Jose,

      there's nothing wrong with it...

      the problem is, the info to the left is making the post look large...
      the sig anchors to the top - I think your sig is only 3 lines if i'm right.

      Kindest regards,
      Karl.

          The infraction will expire eventually...

          If your post is less than 2-3 lines, hit enter a couple of times after, this will put the sig at the bottom.

          Kindest regards,
          Karl.

    Thanks for pointing this out Karl,

    And reporting things within the first couple hours as infractions in a brand new forum... WOW! Amazing... Being mindful would be a good idea to say the least...

    Maybe it's (infraction) something that is auto generated without a human being?

      Easy way to stop it - don't have a sig!

        Yes, that is one way to stop it - but, as we are allowed them, providing they fall within the forum rules - I think it's only fair to let other members know the issue.

        Kindest regards,
        Karl.

    Anyone who gives one for that reason deserves one themselves.

      There was one person who did... to many other people on launch day.

      One smart person waited til they found a post by them affected by the same issue
      and returned the favour, lol.
