But for people who frequent fora that forbid signatures, it's pretty distracting.

The administrators here are trying something new. It hasn't even been in effect for 48 hours yet, and it isn't breaking anything.

I'm amused, and bemused, by this overall fear of change by this forum's membership.
You can go into your User Control Panel and choose not to see signatures if you wish to or not as it is on most "forums".

Change for the sake of change doesn't always equal progress.. Fear has NOTHING to do with it.

Wow. “Fear” “amused” “bemused” — not good word choices there, unless condescension is the intent.

“Isn’t breaking anything”??? Huh?

The point of those who disagree with this new thing boils down to, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

I am not involved in other forums, nor am I on Facebook, so what could I possibly know. (except maybe a little something about human nature)

Not on lemmings.org either.

Still don’t like this “Thanks” with a click thing. Still say if you like a post, use real words to say so.

Still,
Boomerosaurus

Oh my! Whatinthehellisthematterwithme? I am getting way too in to this debate argument and I think it is time for me to stopitstopitstopit.

Jazuela, I usually really “like” your posts, but not the ones in this thread. You have surprised me here.

I have told you in actual words when I have “liked” the things you have written. But I will never, ever click on that “thanks” thing.

I know the TOTV territory all too well. This new idea is not a good idea for this unique forum. In this thread, I have stated all the reasons I think I am right.

But we are not going to change each other’s mind.

I think I need to declare impasse.

Though I proudly remain,
Boomerosaurus

Fascinating how much this "feature" is bothering people. If you don't like it don't use it. Seems pretty simple to me.

It's like the number of posts information.
Once I got to 100 posts, I quit looking at my number.


Once I get 10 thank you's, I will quit looking.


PLEASE THANK ME!!!!
