    I just started playing with my sig and got to thinking about signature options in particular. ( If you have too, please say your signature option idea in this thread)

    Or possibly show just the thread starters signature?

    Maybe an option to disable images in signatures via usercp (ie users on slower connections or data limited packages)?

    Another great option would be to disable Signatures for all members, but have Sigs enabled for certain members who are willing to pay for having it show up.

    ... or as minimum restrict bytes for text and size of pictures

    You can do that with an "account upgrade" and not giving plain registered users the ability to set a sig.

    what is an "account upgrade" ?
    Is this some sort of payment-option build into XF ?

    It's the paid subscription system.

    I would imagine signatures can be configured to show/not show for certain usergroups viewing the forum, and to allow/disallow signatures for certain usergroups too (eg. on my forum, signatures can only be used by paying advertisers).

    However I like the idea above of being able - as a member not a mod - to NOT show selected members signatures to you (in case any member has a signature you don't like). Downside of this is probably adds a bit of bloat to the code?

    We definitely need some kind of restrictions in the ACP for signatures.

    Just look at this real-life example overhere at xenforo.com:
    sig unlimited.png

    ... you can not even make out what the post is anymore:
    1. There is no whitespace between the actual post and the sig-divider line,
    2. The sig-divider line is rather light-coloured to begin with (but that shouldn't be a problem if there was more white space above it),
    3. Point 1 +2 have nothing to do with sig-restrictions, but point 3 has [​IMG]: since it is -apparently- possible to post QUOTE bbcode in your signature, it becomes even harder to distinguish the actual post contents from the signature. The focus should always be on the post-content (stating the obvious here), but user's have too much options inside their signature now which can result in hard to read threads (yes I know I can turn sigs of completely, but this is not the point)...
