Signature apperance

I know that I am here at least 5 months already here. But, regarding new users, they don't see their signature at once. In SkyscraperCity, my former forum in January and February, I put my signature already, and it appeared at once, even though I am not there for a month. Why here? Why should I wait for a month to see my signature?

Re: Signature apperance

Hi;

SkyscraperCity is very unwise to do what they are doing. Either they have tons of spam in those signatures or ( and this is unlikely ) the spambots do not know of their existence.

A member has to be here a while before they can have a signature. This weeds out some of the hit and miss spammers.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Re: Signature apperance

Oh. Why? Signatures in less than a month membership = Spam?

Re: Signature apperance

Spammers do not wish to hang around for more than say a week or so.

Not exactly. But someone who stays the month and gets the posts is probably serious.
