As an example, I just spent the afternoon summarising my time on EB over the last two years; take a look! Now I can show off the work I've done and not feel guilty about it! We'd like all members to do something similar in future rather than fill their signatures with past work that most people will ignore anyway. Remember after all that the signature rule is...
...and by using the About Me page it will be much easier to follow these rules. Additionally, things like "wish lists", long lists and multiple links will no longer be acceptable in signatures; the About Me page is a much more appropriate place.
On a positive note, as a trial we'll try be extremely flexible with what you do post on your About Me page; loads of links, lots of pictures, quotes, lists, items for sale... you name it! You can then post in your signature when you do updates to it and everyone will be happy. Just remember to keep your page as on-topic as possible; please don't make it into a shrine to Mötley Crüe or similar.
So in summary;
- About Me is cool.
- Try to keep you signatures small, the rest goes to the About Me page.
- Wish lists are to be moved to your About Me page.
- Feel free to use your signature to advertise sales in your About Me page.
