as brilliant as i can be (haha) i am very absent minded at times too - one of the things i forget to do the most often is to click the box that will append my 'signature' to a reply. i really think it would be cool to have a couple of default settings in our profiles to allow just that... uhmm... but to be difficult, i only want my signature to automatically show in replies, not my originating post... heh.

thanks

Yes...I agree---but it's become second nature to click on the Signature box now though...

Others are too in love with the sound of their own voice to speak the truth...

No word on this?  I'd also find this great, and like you, I don't add signatures in my poems.

But my signature is killer.  Check it out:

Good ol' Master.

Are there going to be any conclusions drawn on this?

it's been my experience over the past three years that lack of response is exactly that.

Hi Christopher

Your post is the reason I popped in here, to find out if any had made the suggestion, but not only for what you suggest but that the poster can choose his/her own defaults in the message icon, signature, library, poet and smilies. I have never visited a site where I cannot set these preferences as default though, I would not suggest that the options for their alteration be removed.

As an aside, I think Ron might be away or very busy because I sent hima n email a few days ago to which I have not had a response. (I learned from my last error and read all the posts b4 responding.)

I guess one becomes content with one’s poetry when one opens the book ten years hence and does NOT exclaim, “Did I really write this?”

I haven't received your email, Paddy, so you might want to try again. Use the email icon in this post, rather than the board address, and it'll come directly instead of wending through our web server. Uh, and you can select a default for the message icon, as well as the font (in your Profile). What defaults would apply to the Library or smilies?

As Chris surmised (he knows me so well), lack of response usually indicates a problem. I would really rather not encourage the use of signatures and the last thing I would want is for them to become ubiquitous. Look at Chris's last post - the signature is three or four times longer than his message. Do we really need to see it on every single post he makes in the same thread? The next version of our software will handle sigs MUCH differently, and they will no longer be a part of the message itself (which means the server won't have to do the extra work of stripping the signature for edits, cards, etc). If I provided a default always-on signature, I'd have to remove it in our next software version - and I almost never take things away once they're given.

Hi Ron

Must have been a glitch on the icon. It seems to be working now. I have sent a copy to your alternative addy, thanks.

I was referring to the other options, signature, add thread to library. add poet to library and disable smilies at the bottom of the composition window.

The other annoying thing I have found is if I do a preview, I lose the settings with regard to icon (though that may be OK now?) sig, library and smilies that I had already set. It's not so bad though because I now set them immediately b4 posting so if it's too difficult or time consuming, I wouldn't worry.

As for the signature, I like mine, probably because I wrote it. haha

Hey Ron, I think this is really cool that you respond so quickly. The board must keep you very busy. I appreciate your effort. Thanks.
