Frequently Asked Questions

How do signatures work?

Premium members are provided the ability to attach a signature to their posts. Signatures appear to all users when viewing posts in single-message mode; they are not visible in PMs or when viewing posts in other modes. Premium users also have the ability to suppress signatures from their interface.

Beginning in November, 2008, signatures were removed from Member profiles and used to create an "initial" default signature for all members who had one. That signature was "attached" to all previous posts by that Member. Premium members can create new signatures and select which signature is their current default for new posts via My Signatures. This link is available from the Edit Profile page on My Account. The signature attached to each post will now remain even if the default signature is changed.

Site admins have the ability to disable any signature from being attached to new posts, and the ability to hide previously attached signatures deemed to be in violation of site policy.

This guy has a link in his signature that says "see my favorite boards" but when you click on it, it gives the guy a MemberMark. Can I do this, too?

No, there should be no links to Membermarks anywhere except iHub's link on the Profile page. If you see such a link, please report it by sending a pm to iHubAdmin.

I'm Mod on the board and don't understand why I can't have the company’s logo or ticker in my signature?

Since this appears in every post you make, it is considered spam when you post on other boards. Feel free to add this to other areas of your profile that are not displayed on each post.

This one lady has a political endorsement in her signature. Whenever she posts on the board, someone almost always comments on it and the board devolves into a political discussion.

Political or religious expressions and references are not appropriate for signatures. People are welcome to place these in other sections of their profile but as indicated here, it often leads to very divergent comments that can quickly create chaos on the stock board. Please alert Admin to signatures of this nature by sending a PM to iHubAdmin.

This guy has a very, very scantily clad woman as his sig. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the picture as much as the next guy. But, any time he posts everyone wants to talk about her and I feel like a real jerk removing these comments.

A signature that "crosses the line" is usually apparent when other User's can't help but comment on it. A good guideline is that it is a picture the User would be comfortable sharing with his Grandmother or Mother-in-Law. Please alert Admin to any pictures that you would like to have reviewed.

This woman has a link to a song in her signature. It takes forever to download her posts and really is very annoying – especially since I'm often quickly checking the board while at work.

No sounds should be in a signature. Please send a PM to iHubAdmin.

A lady on the board doesn't like me and thinks I delete her posts unfairly (I don't). But, now she's put an attack about me in her sig saying I'm a biased Mod.

Signatures are governed by the TOU. If the signature violates the rules, then it should be removed. Please send a PM to iHubAdmin.

How do I make a signature?

Go to Tools/My Account and click on "Manage my Signatures" or go to "Edit my profile" and scroll down and click on "Manage my Signatures"

Click on "Create a New Signature" and make your new signature. Click on Preview and check it. If it needs editing click edit and make the changes. After you are finished click save and then click "Make this my default".

Once you save a signature it can no longer be edited. You can make as many new signatures as you would like. Signatures cannot be removed from your list after they are saved.
