    Default quotes no longer ok???

    I saw someone put a quote in their signature. Less than an hour later, I tried to do the same and found that it is now impossible. I have finished crying now and blowing my nose, so I wanted to know if this feature was intentionally blocked and why. Thankies.

    Block quotes in signatures was turned off by the admins a few months back because some people were over using it and making their signatures huge.

    From my understanding is that if a poster used a quote before the change was in place, you can edit the quote and still use it. But it someone tries to add a quote, then they can not.

    Did they have a quote in place before? If so, they could have just edited the quote. If not, then something is wrong.

    Brandon, I have a feeling it's a COTM thing*. I can still add images too. (I just checked, and yep. I can add quotes.)

    No one should be able to use quotes in signatures or upload images into signatures now.

    And here I thought that it was a bit of a gift to COTM folks.

    Of course, I've never had anything in my sig, but now I can't even dream. :(

    Why not just set a character limit for signatures or something?

    There already is one. Quotes is (or was) a way of doing an end run around it.

    I just wanted to post because there aren't enough "Matt"s in the thread.

    And quoting in sigs isn't really a big deal. You can still quote someone artificially, and I guess without getting around any character limits.
