The standard setting (at least for Tapatalk on the iPhone) I The signature is turned off.

Personally I changed the default to show where I was posting from.

Oh and ........


As I'm out this is from my Phone using Tapatalk.

Yes, but the whole point of this post is why do we need to know this (sorry) but useless information? Does it matter to anyone else where you are sending your information from? Does it matter to anyone else what sort of phone you've got? Next thing we'll be seeing is " Responded in my Blue Discovery Serengeti whilst wearing nothing but my favourite leopard print thong!"

Tiger stripes, please. Looks much better than leopard print in hi-vis.

Looks like I've started something here

I really don't understand why people are getting so wound up by this. It's a few words at the bottom of a post!

I have a sig block (below) which comes up on every post I make. When I post from my phone, there is an extra line which says 'From my mobile device' (and will continue to do so)

Where's the damage in that??

Surely we have more important things to do than bickering about telling people what they should or shouldn't be writing at the bottom of their messages?

Where has all this "i don't like it so you should not do it" come from?

You guys need to stop telling people what they should and shouldn't be doing.

Hi Warren,

I think the problem has come about because people can choose in their options whether to display signatures in posts or not, so if they are low on bandwidth or short of time or simply choose to, they can turn them off. Adding signatures which are not actually signatures on the forum, but text at the bottom of every post, circumvents that.

Cheers

Patrick

Ok so I don't put that I'm sending from my phone but I would still include the app that I'm using. If it wasn't for seeing it in on another thread in a signature I wouldn't have found that app.

So that is informative which is what a signature is all about. What information you give there is up to you but should be personalised.

I don't believe you can strip out this from Tapatalk as it is included as just standard text just on the end of your post.

However if you wish it could be done via banned words but now you are talking censorship and I for one would not be happy if that was were we are going with this.

It is one thing to block/remove obscenities but to block other information raises serious questions.

I for one have found the information gleaned on Tapatalk from someones signature to be excellent and very useful. It let's me keep up with things on the forum for which I would have to make a special decision to boot the computer and check.


This is from my Mobile device using Tapatalk the easyway too keep informed.
