    Change it in your user settings then. That should change it for good for you. At the top right of the screen go to 'Settings'. Then on the menu on the left I think it's in 'General Settings'. Scroll down until you find 'Forum Skin'.

    I'm fairly sure you can also turn off signatures and avatars in General Settings too... so you could switch off signatures, which would solve your issue with having to scroll through long sigs.

    Yes, thanks, that worked.

    The only time I change colors is when I cut and paste as part of a quote. Many times it seems to come over in black and I have to change the color back but don't get it exactly right.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    What? You should get 10 posts per page regardless of sig size. The only impact sigs should have is how much scrolling you do.

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    I am getting more posts per page now I've disabled the signatures.

    Though why people feel the need for such long signatures puzzles me somewhat.

    It built over the course of 3 years and amuses me. Can't speak for anyone else but since I'm pretty sure that I have the largest sig on the site among active members, that's what I'm going with.

    That's why we have custom profile settings. So that you can turn off the bits you don't like. It prevents you having to complain about functions that other members have been enjoying for years. This way you can enjoy not having to look at sigs, while the rest of the membership can enjoy having their sigs. Everyone wins.

    This isn't the thread for such complaints....
