Angry Tapatalk signatures

Chaps,

I have viewing of signatures disabled on my profile as I really not interested in reading the same thing time & again.

It seems that TAPATALK gets round this & I end up reading 'posted from tapatalk' a dozen times on every thread.

Now nothing personal, but this really winds me up.

Can signatures please be confined to the correct place & not included in the text of every post.

The signature is added by the phone to the post not by the forum to the signature box.

I am sure it is probably possible to disabel it in the phones settings but I have just suggested an alternative to Patrick that would work for all wether they like it or not.

Keep the tablets outside for a nice, chilled pill?

No, fair point Mark. I've removed the Signature in my Tapatalk settings.

Cheers

Al

It is certainly possible to disable it on a Blackberry as I can do it on my work one.

Also works for iPhone as mine doesn't seem to leave a signature.

So I assume you can do it from the rest

Thanks Alan, 1 down 999 to go.

The only reason I hate it so much is that it's free unsolicited advertising for the suppliers, be it iphone, blackberry, tapatalk or whatever & It's about the only advert I cant find a way of blocking automatically

Patrick just found a way forum wide and is now checking for other such signatures to add to the remove list.

Stripped to be replaced by whitespace, still in some caches but should work its way out shortly. I've added sigs that I've seen from HTC phones, ipod touch and iphone, shout if you see any more..

Top man... Thanks chaps

Personally if it was one of my forums I would just have added the phrase to the banned section & replaced it with something insulting - but then I'm like that

This isn't a standard signature, this is one someone has actively set, therefore I don't think it meets the criteria of the automatic removal set up here (correct me if I'm mistaken please guys). In this situation as its been set by the user, and not just on by default, a quiet word may be more appropriate.

Cheers

Patrick
