I mean they're just signatures. They're nice accessories, but they're not the main reason anybody's here. It's not something critical like smilies or something.

I personally don't give a shit about sigs and didn't even notice they were gone until somebody pointed it out to me, but I do sympathize with Quantumsurfer's sentiments about his spending a lot of time making contest winner badges that people put in their sigs. Other than that I think it's a positive development. Does phpbb support whitelisting for sigs, like being a privilege you earn rather than being an automatic right?

Or would stubby be willing to put contest badges in ranks?

Edit: for me, and I think a few others, it was nice to have links to our other things. I can deal without, but I actually used those frequently to navigate people's content.

These sigs and links should be still visible in the respective user pages. They're just not displayed beneath any forum posts any more.
And yeah, as others and I already said, it'd be nice to have at least contest badges visible in one way or another.

Request to admins: could you put the neat badge I won in 2015 from Quantum under my avatar like the YOU'RE WINNER picture?

EDIT: Dyslexia is fun: but --> put

75% chance Vami and Silverdream are the reason I was already so pissed off about sigs before Voin even showed up. I can't remember for sure.

I guess I'm a bit contrary.
When everyone had a sig I didn't want one.
Blitzen even thought it was odd that I didnt have one.

Put that way, I understand it. I guess it didn't really occur to me what a headache it was to monitor and maintain.

Still, I'm casting in my request with Duerer and Red to have some kind of system in place for badges and whatnot. If it's even possible and if it isn't too much of a drag on an admin.

tbh you could have just done what you did to me and removed Voin's ability to change sigs.

just remove voin from brikwars, pepes and alt right neonazis are cool and all but only when they're clever and attractive, voin is from what I hear a greaseball and not even pure aryan like silvadream
