Why is there suddenly a huge signature space, even when I remove my sig?

Is it something to do with Firefox? I've noticed a few others with big ones!

    Just posted on another board and it was fine. Not fine here.

    Weird!

    The extra badges for postcounts

    have increased the height of the postbit (left hand pane with your info in) if you have those, pushing the bottom of the whole container for a post down.

    Sig still appears just under the end of the text in your post, so on a short post there can be a large gap.

    On a longer posts with more text, your sig is pushed down by that to the bottom of the post container, so little or no gap.

  • This oversized length of the Left Hand pane was one of the main things that was complained about, some years ago, when users' views were sought (possibly on the redesign before the blue one).

    No action to address it was taken then.
    On the contrary, they made it worse by including some daft 'Badger' badges, and now they are taking it to ludicrous levels with all the 'butter tubs' for post counts.

    Don't they understand the basics required for forum 'ease of use'?

    Possibly not ... they probably spend little time actually using the forum as we do.

    No they don't otherwise they wouldn't be forcing avatars on us with the new forum look when the old forum allowed them to be turned off and the space saved.
