    I have NO idea how much this would entail, but would it be possible (in preferences) to select an option that would automatically input your signature after each post? I always put my sig in, just cuz. Or does the amount of effort required to add that not balance with the one extra click that we have to do on each post? I think maybe you, glenn, and DIF are the only ones who may have developed any amount of carple tunnel over this, just a nifty little thing for most.

    I could very easily make is that the Show Signature button is automatically checked, but then for those without a signature, if they forget to unclick the check, that dotted line will appear on the bottom of all their posts with no sig below. So I don't know. Opinions?

    I emailed Brett with this very question last week, since I just started using the tag. I've gotten used to it pretty quickly, so it's not crucial. I think it's silly to ask non-users to click something in order to prevent the line going across. I think it falls to someone who wants to use it to remember to click the box. Hopefully I remember here.

    I was actually thinking about putting it as an option in user preferences somewhere and leave it to the user to decide. Like when somebody developes or edits there sig, have a box they can click that activates signature input automatically after each post if they desire that. I think I see what you mean about just having it automatically on all the time as a default for the board as a whole. I would be game for that as well, but then your point comes in to play about people with no sig.
