Dear GBModerator, Mr Rob Livingstone, First off, thank you for the recent upgrade of the GamesBids forums. I think most of us would agree, they look really nice. I understand there's a few teething problems at the moment, but I'm confident these will all be worked out eventually. And I understand that you yourself are also trying to come to grips with some of the changes that have come with the new format, and have yourself expressed frustration at some features missing or done away with. I guess we all have to try and be patient. That said, i do have a very big request or favour to ask. Please bring back, if you have the means to do so, the ability for members to add their own signatures to their posts. Okay, it may appear a frivolous request, but I think the sigs are an important part of the GamesBids. We're a forum with lots of creative people and full of people who like to express their passions and who are always keen to show off their artistic sides, the cities and teams they want to support, the events they are looking forward to. We're a community who like to play Forum games, and organise and participate in Forum contests and challenges - many of them involving artwork and graphic elements. We like to personalise our posts and add our own flavour to our personal profiles. Since the update, this is a feature that's now missing. The only way for us to personalise our posts and profiles at the moment is through our profile pics - tiny as they are. beyond that, we are now left with bland vanilla posts with nothing to distinguish them from each other. We've lost a bit of incentive for future Forum events and competitions, where people in the past would routinely use sigs to highlight their artistic efforts or their support of a sports team or Olympic bidding city or their adopted team or country in a sweepstakes for the likes of a World Cup or an Olympic games. With Rio just around the corner, I'm sure there's more than a few of us who had been planning Games Time sigs to trumpet their allegiances. Every other forum I regularly visit or participate in - from console games to fan sites to various arcane discussion boards - has the ability to let members design and add their own signatures. It just seems so lacking that a forum that has so many members that celebrate the imagery and colour of the Olympic Games is now one of the few that doesn't offer that feature/ability. I think it diminishes the board not to have that ability. I sure hope it's not now beyond the technical capability of the current forum software used and can be re-instated. I ask on behalf of the membership that if it is at all possible to reinstate the ability, please do so. We'd really appreciate it. Yours Sincerely, Sir Rols ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ BRING BACK THE SIGS!
