    Updating Signature

    I've tried multiple times to update my signature. Even though I hit save it does not take. Is there a max character count or something? Should I delete earlier stuff?

    There is a maximum character limit, 500 characters I think it is. It prevents very long sigs taking up lots of screen space. Condense it if you can but if not, PM me and have it written out and I can change it for you if it is over the limit.

    Yup, as Di notes, there IS a limit. That is why you'll see so many signatures fraught with fractured English, abbreviations, etc. LOL

    Good luck, you're in good hands with Di.
