Hello, everyone... I'm a tad confused at the moment... Really could use some insight here... Posted Image

Recently, I tried to change my Forum Signature. The rules at the top of that page say that I should be able to have four lines of text. When I actually try to exceed two, the forum system chokes and dumps me at the server error page. What's going on to disallow the alteration from succeeding, when I'm avoiding violating the rules with my Forum Signature change? As far as I can tell, the problem I'm having should never have happened in the first place. Posted Image

Okay, it's almost TWO YEARS LATER, and I'm finding myself once again UNABLE to Edit My Signature. This thread is getting a bump from me due to this, because it's rather close to the same damned problem again. Posted Image

I'm keeping it down to Two Lines @ 10-Point Font, and the system keeps throwing an error where it acts like I'm exceeding Four Lines. I don't have excess carriage returns. My lines are NOT that long. I'm literally being blocked from changing it away from what you see below. THIS SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING! So what the hell is wrong with the MWO Forum, which I can tell is running "Invision Power Boards"-Based Software?!?!? Posted Image

(p.s.: I'll be editing my Tags on this thread. They're overdue for needing an Update.)
(EDIT -- I just discovered I can't attach "Bug Report" as a Tag here... Just downright awful...)

Had about 3 lines filled with mech variants, when adding recent additions got me that error page. So, even without using small font like Devnull, the stated "4 lines" is simply untrue. If I had to guess, the code is more like <4*80 characters - never counted mine, but that would explain why you get 2 lines and I got 3.
And very likely they don't have someone left to actually understand their forum code, much like the actual game code. Posted Image

Greetings,

PGI please take note!!!

The following is a three line signature:

[size=5][font=Brush Script MT,helvetica,sans-serif]Megabopper[/font][/size]
[size=2](Living the dream .. I play Mechwarrior Online .. and now they're coming to take me away .. ha ha - hee hee - ho ho - hoo hoo - ha haaaaaaaaaaaa.......)[/size]
[size=1](with apologies to Dr. Demento)[/size]
the code length calculates as 290 characters which displays as

Megabopper
(Living the dream .. I play Mechwarrior Online .. and now they're coming to take me away .. ha ha - hee hee - ho ho - hoo hoo - ha haaaaaaaaaaaa.......)
(with apologies to Dr. Demento)

When I try to save it your dialog indicates that an error has occurred and only four lines are allowed. Now you can see from the above that the BBcode takes only 4 lines (with wraparound) and the display is only three. Is it possible you need to check and see if you have an error in this dialog? If so please fix it because the following which codes in 3 lines (with wraparound) and still displays in three lines (with wraparound) works:

[size=5][font=Brush Script MT,helvetica,sans-serif]Megabopper[/font][/size]
[size=2](Living the dream .. I play Mechwarrior Online .. and now they're coming to take me away .. ha ha - hee hee - ho ho - hoo hoo - ha haaaaaaaaaaaa.......)[/size][size=1](with apologies to Dr. Demento)[/size]
the code length calculates as 289 characters which displays as

Megabopper
(Living the dream .. I play Mechwarrior Online .. and now they're coming to take me away .. ha ha - hee hee - ho ho - hoo hoo - ha haaaaaaaaaaaa.......)(with apologies to Dr. Demento)

If in fact you really do mean that 4 lines should be allowed for the signature what is actually occurring is NOT reasonable.

* edited for clarity and accuracy

Best Regards.
