    Hi

    I was able to create and edit my signature when I joined the forum, I cannot find the option to do this anymore. I also cannot edit any of my posts, the "edit" option is not there.
    What is wrong?

    I think the criteria changed and is linked to post count. Once you get to a certain number of posts the other functions should return. Us common folk around here think it's around 80 posts.

    Well, I think any number above 10 is excessive. Never seen such a number in any other forum.
    Those limits usually are there to detract scammers and people that join just to advertise their products, they usually give up at the second or third post.

    On your computer, on the top right of the page is your screen name (the little one, not the larger one). If you hover on that, a bunch of options pop up - one of them is "signature" if you have enough posts to be able to edit it. I don't know the number, and I don't have control over the number...

    I agree that number seems high and this is not a rock solid number just something observed recently. I'm sure it was done during an update or due to an increase in spamming posts a while back.

    Not sure who owns this site or how it works (systems wise). I am a moderator on Pathfindertalk which is owned by Autoguide. Us moderators can request to change such things and 9/10 times the site admins will do them for us. We also report cases like this for them to look into it.

    11FACDEA-A6C4-4A38-A4D1-D97FEBE0B550.jpeg I’d like to edit my signature as well. I’m on an iPad and these are the only options I get.

    Why do you suppose they’re different? I don’t have enough posts? Then how was I able to add a signature?

    We don't have a firm grip on why or how on some of the functions. Some of them seem to be post count but I don't know of any regular posters that have those answers. Maybe not even the admin knows all the functions and defaults. I still use an old i phone 6s and I don't know how to use all of it.

    Very likely something that changed during a software upgrade, an option that needs to be turned on by the admin. Unless there is some interaction with the Tapatalk piece, as you cannot see signatures on Tapatalk.
