    I adjusted my size from 2 and 3 to 1 and 2. Hopefully this is what you were looking for.

    I find the jokes on this issue very disrespectful to those that need to use one of these services and the mod team.

    It's a signature not an advertizing banner.
    For vendors it's a signature and a link to their store and never ment to be anything else.

    Perfect!

    However, strict adherence to this would suggest things like Shug's signature links to his YouTube video would have to go. I don't want to see that happen.

    I'll throw in my 2 cents. I find multi-line, enhanced typeface signatures somewhat annoying. I've plenty of screen space so it's not a problem for me but I can see how it could dramatically impact the usability of the site for the visually impared.

    The member profile information to the left of each post also greatly adds to the sites whitespace. Signature space is always below the profile info. Perhaps members who feel the need to express themselves in the signature should be encouraged to limit thier profile information.

    Every joke ever is disrespectful to somebody in some fashion, I'm sure - certainly no offense was meant by anything anybody said.

    That said, why are the two mutually exclusive? I'm not a vendor but I use my signature to promote the club that I'm a member of...it's an advertising banner for me.

    There's a hard and fast rule regarding signatures and it's enforced by the actual signature page where you create it. If there are certain behaviors or excessive lengths you'd like to enforce then by all means, do so - we don't run the forums, you do. If disabling signatures for those that find them distracting or problematic isn't a viable option then maybe signatures should be done away with altogether?
    I used to be a somebody, now I just camp.

    Problem solved.
    Easy enough for most of us but I'm more concerned about those with visual impairments. See the video below.
    The video on screen readers was pretty interesting. I learned things.

    Are you suggesting that someone who is visually impaired might not be able to navigate to their profile settings to turn off signatures? If that's the case, do mods have an ability to set user profile flags on someone's behalf? If not, I'm sure friends/family could assist with it in a pinch.

    To those suggesting turning off sigs globally, or drastically limiting how they can be used:

    Making sweeping changes to signature policy to address rare corner cases of annoyance or handicap tosses the baby out with the bathwater when there is a pretty simple alternative (shut them off for yourself) available. John Stuart Mill would turn over in his grave at the idea of shutting them off completely. Given the number of forum goers who use them, many people believe they provide value.

    Removing sigs isn't akin to adding a 50' handicap ramp to circumvent the stairs to your business, it's actually like installing the ramp and then removing the stairs, forcing everyone to use the ramp.

    Everyone pause just for a few moments and take a deep breath. Relax.
