    We only get to put 1 link in our sig which is a shame because I'd like to put the links of helpful threads in my sig such as a link to the unban template but can't cause of my glorious image :/.

    I sorta agree. The ability to only have one link in your signature is sorta a shame. But I'm sure there's a logical reason why you're only allowed one link..

    It's mostly to prevent a bunch of spam. I don't see any harm in allowing 2-3 links, but it's mostly to deter people from posting a million links.

    I think adding the possibility to add a new link spot wouldn't kill anyone. Maybe add a font size limit though (if that isn't already like that, I haven't changed my signature for awhile). Overall, I think this could be a beneficial idea.

    I thought john was only in charge of the ban/report department but I may be wrong, best bet would be tagging @rubik_cube_man and @halothe23 for their opinions.

    From what I can see it looks like the majority of people would like an extra link in the sig perhaps capping at 3.

    Oh my bad, that was his friend/colleague who's in charge of that. I'm not too sure what John does, all I know him from is the EULA video :/

    Links in signatures are already something we wanted to disable entirely for users due to the chances of spam, since they are there, the chances that someone may click it is pretty high, so for now, be happy you have one, and not none at all. :)
