Why are you trying to hide links in the signature? I find that disappointing... I understand why it is no-follow, but hiding it and making it the same color as regular text is pushing it a little too far, don't you think?

Why not make some indications that there is at least a link in the signature? Maybe make it a different color or something... I don't appreciate the fact that the links are hidden. (At least my link 'Wedevoy' is the same color as the text 'is reopen.'). It's only different if you hover over it.

Please?

[EDIT:] Not trying to be rude, if I sounded rude, I'm sorry.

Does the font formatting bbcode not work in signatures for you bogey ? :scratchhead:

Here's the bbcode I use in my signature.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease, but the whining wheel gets replaced.

Actually, I see your point Bogey. Links in post body are slightly different color and underlined, where simply using the URL bbcode in sigs is not. That I assume is an easy CSS fix.

I know that would work, I just meant in general, there is no point to hide a no-follow link... unless, of course, you don't want not only no-follow but a link that gets no clicks as well.

It is an easy CSS fix, I just wish that BWM would decide to fix that...
