I know this isn't the most important of our rules, but I find that over time I've gotten more and more sensitive to violations of this rule. Lately I feel like I'm spending half my HW time scrolling past 20-30 line signatures. These signatures also use a lot of database space. Every time you post, your text AND your signature is put into the database. 10 posts could mean a couple hundred lines of extra space is used up. It would help everyones performance issues with slow page loading, etc. if we could be more careful about this.

18. No lengthy signatures. Limit signatures to 10 lines or less. Moderators will edit and/or remove signatures that are too long.

Thanks for the reminder, Lynnwood. I had noticed more and more long signatures myself. It never hurts to send out reminders every once in awhile. We have had a nice increase in new members so the time is perfect for such a point to be made!

Hope all is well wth you - I don't visit as often when school is in session.
