A very small point, but repeating the signatures in PC's seems like a waste to me. How about if the signature of each particpant only shows once per conversation, or once per page?
Actually in a long PC it may be better to have them in every post, since one of the participants may not have posted for several pages. So I'm not going to support this suggestion.

Right! Also keep in mind, with vB the signature on each particular post and PM is optional - you can choose not to include it. With XenForo, that is not an option as far as I can tell, which is in line with the leaner and cleaner posting interface.Keep it clean thats the theme!
This is sort of off topic, but I've seen you bring this up several times. What you said is the current behavior, yes, but I have no desire to make the lack of control a long term thing.I suspect a lot of admin's will disable signatures completely considering images and smilies can't be prohibited.
That's good to hear Mike.What you said is the current behavior, yes, but I have no desire to make the lack of control a long term thing.
I'll have to disagree with you here, Brogan - I hate it when forums I join don't allow signatures - if I like what someone posts, I often check their signature. And I wouldn't turn them off on the forums I admin - members who contribute content to the forum expect and deserve them. I do agree with you about the overdone sigs though. Mike is indicating that the lack of signature controls will be addressed within the standard featureset, but even if they weren't, I'm pretty sure that modifications would be available to restrict images and links.Personally I have them switched off completely which makes everything so much cleaner anyway.
