: New User Default Settings

It just was brought to my attention that new users have signatures (viewing all sigs) turned off by default

was this a conscious decision? if so that's fine, but if i recall correctly it didn't used to be that way

it would be nice if new users could see my signature with my contact info

Hmm. I'll ask adam because I don't remember having it that way myself...

yeah it's bit me a couple times when i've said to newbies "just email or call me since you can't pm yet... info's in my sig"

and then they reply 'what sig?'

VB4 turns signatures and avatars off for registered users by default. I've since fixed this so they are now on. They did not have this option for vBulletin 3.x, so naturally the setting was overlooked when the forum was upgraded to VB4.

ah i thought that it might have been something like that

that means that anyone who signed up between the change to VB4 and now will still have them turned off right? and will have to turn them on if they want to see signatures, right?
