    Why do some threads display signature, some do not

    Title says it all.

    In some threads, the user's signature displays. In others it does not.

    Why?

    Marble is defined as a small, hard ball that is used in a variety of children's games and is named after the 18th-century practice of making the toy from marble chips. Marble games date from antiquity, and ancient games were played with sea-rounded pebbles, nuts, or fruit pits. The young Octavian (later the emperor Augustus), like other Roman children, played games with nut marbles, and engraved marbles have been dug up from the earthen mounds built by some early North American Indian tribes. Jewish children use filberts as marbles at Passover.
    In the 20th century, marbles have been made of a variety of materials: baked clay, glass, steel, plastic, onyx, agate. Particular marbles may be known for their use (shooters may be called taws, a word of obscure origin); their original material (alleys were once made of alabaster); or their appearance (e.g., "flints," "cloudies").
    The object of marble games is to roll, throw, drop, or knuckle marbles against an opponent's marbles, often to knock them out of a prescribed area and so win them. (Knuckling is the act of placing a marble on the forefinger, balancing that finger or the bottom of the hand against the ground, and shooting the marble outward with the thumb.)
    The names and rules of marble games are as varied as the localities and countries where they are played, but a few may be mentioned. In taw, ringtaw, or ringer, players attempt to shoot marbles, sometimes arranged in a cross, out of a ring as much as 6 to 10 feet (about 2 to 3 m) in diameter. In hit and span, players try to shoot or roll marbles either against an opponent's marbles or a hand's span from them. In various pot games (a pot is a small hole in the ground), including moshie, the player tries to pitch his own marbles or knock his opponents' marbles into a hole. In bridgeboard, or nineholes, a board with several numbered arches is set up, and players try to shoot their marbles through the arches. A Chinese marble game consists of kicking a marble against an opponent's to make the latter rebound in a specified direction. Local, regional, and national tournaments are held in many countries.

    ^ length of post and I think there's another variabke also, such as only 1 sig displayed per poster per page or every so many posts in between sigs.

    Why does it matter Huhu, I have sigs turned off anyway.

    Egads! Sir Wilson is correct.

    Or not? Now confused. First time it went up, no signature, after the first edit above - the signature appeared.

    Seems a pretty dumb criteria, and, if anything, more of a bug than anything else. If this is intended behavior, then it's just more vB bunk decisions.

    Doesn't really matter - I just noticed it, and in my world, a "signature" should be part of any post, if so specified.

    I can't get signature to display. I've saved it and preview shows it. I've ticked the box that says "show signature".

    Can't think of anything more to do.

    Thanks for the tip Mid.

    So, characters and lines of text is what the bugger wants, is it? Trying again, more out of pedantic blockheadedness than anything.

    Don't worry mate. Now that Sir Wilson has gone, we can be honest that that Sir Wilson was a bit of a dibble.

    Not a classy guy like you.........
