Signatures Rule link to this FlyerTalk Rule

A personalized signature is available to you once you have achieved 180 posts and 180 days as a member. Because these signatures appear at the bottom of every post you make, the following rules apply in order to minimize distraction within the forums:
  • Signatures are subject to the rules governing all FlyerTalk content (e.g. those which forbid the furthering of illegal or fraudulent activities, the use of profanity, vulgarity, hatred, abusiveness and harassment).
  • Affiliate or referral links resulting in any form of compensation, including points or miles, are not permitted in signatures.
  • All links and referrals to credit card sign-up pages, marketplaces with a primary purpose to promote the sale or referral of credit cards, or any other offer related to credit cards, are prohibited in signatures. For clarification, if you author a blog focused in the areas of travel, miles and points, your signature may link to your blog — provided that the link is not directly to a post or webpage about credit cards.
  • Except for credit card sign-up offers, signatures that specifically relate to your travel-related commercial ventures are allowed. Other commercial signatures are not allowed.
  • Signatures of a religious or political nature (other than campaigning for FlyerTalk's elected TalkBoard) are not allowed.
  • Signatures containing direct links away from FlyerTalk to charitable activities are not allowed, but you may use a link to your thread in the FlyerTalk Cares forum. (See Rule 11 — Charitable Posts.)
  • You may not manually insert a signature into the body of a message or user profile unless you are an official company representative, as designated by a green-colored username. A brief close in the body of a message, such as, "Regards," "Cheers," "Travel Safely," or "Thanks," with or without your name or user name, is permitted.
Graphically, your signature must conform to the following standards:
  • andard column widths.
  • Do not use all-caps, alternating caps, alternating use of color, or other unconventional methods of attracting attention to your signature. Two emoticons, characters, symbols or other key strokes in addition to text are permitted.
  • Do not embed images of any kind in your signature.

To add or edit a signature:

  1. Go to My FlyerTalk

  2. See Your Control Panel on the left

  3. Go to Settings & Options

  4. Go to Edit Signature

To have a signature, you must have 180 days and 180 constructive posts on FlyerTalk, and the signature must meet the conditions shown in the FlyerTalk Rules, reflected in the Wikipost above.

Go to My FlyerTalk, click / press, then go to Your Control Panel. Under Settings and Options, you’ll see Edit Signature. Click or press on Edit Signature and establish your signature; it will show on all posts, past and future.

Arrow How to change my signature? and other Signature questions

I am hunted for this info and can't find it. I've posted in the tech forums, but the posts don't seem to show up.

Any ideas on how to edit my signature? There is no edit pencil by the signature in my profile.

also, how do I edit my URL in my profile? Again, no edit pencil.

Thanks!

Apologies for updating a very old thread,

I'm over 90 days and 90 posts and don't have an option to edit signature.

If I am not mistaken, the current rule to have signatures for members is to achieve 180 posts & 180 days:

Go to the "my flyertalk" page and look at the list of various options in the left hand column. Under "settings and options" and you should see "edit signature"
