    I was on ubuntu forums the other day I wanted to add the site in my sig to my sig there but saw putting political stuff in your sig was against the rules, since I cannot find the rules here I am asking is my sig ok?

    Um, the signature rules are located, now get this, where you enter your signature.

    Signature rules:
    Maximum 150 characters and 6 lines.
    No blank lines or lines of punctuation characters!
    May not be distracting, oversized, or in conflict with any forum rules.
    Please use continuous text rather than many short lines.
    For example, use this:
    24" Aluminum iMac, 2.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 750 GB HD ; 4 GB iPod nano
    instead of this:
    24" Aluminum iMac
    2.8 GHz
    4 GB RAM
    750 GB HD
    4 GB iPod nano

    I think my signature will leave people with more traumatic images in their head than yours.

    Our policy is fairly generous: that signatures may be used to give additional information about you, express your opinion on almost any subject, show your sense of humor, promote or link to your "cause" or favorite website, or almost anything else within reason. We consider it to be a problem only if your signature is over-the-line outrageous or purposely meant to alarm or anger others. If a signature regularly generates complaints from other forum members, it's probably inappropriate. If not, it's probably OK.

    If signatures are too large, colorful, or tall, the moderators may fix the problem without notice. In most cases, they change a signature into one long line, as in the example above, or remove unnecessary [size] or tags.

    We disallow the use of the forums as a means to call attention to forum signatures. In other words, if you are participating in a forum discussion, your signature comes along for the ride and shouldn't be the reason for your post. If you see advertisers make spam posts simply to spread their ads around, please let the moderators know so they can put a stop to it.

    Members can enable or disable the display of forum signatures in their User Options.
