in reply to div tag in signatures

A note of some kind on the posting page would have been nice. I had no idea this was for signatures, which I have never used, and put the whole text of my reply inside it on several nodes. Maybe people who don't use sigs shouldn't get this extra junk in their message posting forms.

    The patches I posted do not add the tags if there is no signature content. So given what you say you wouldn't see the tags at all.

      It looks like the patch isn't working properly then. I have no sig, and I get the tags with a blank line between them.
        The patch needs to be actually applied by a god before it will take affect, and hasnt been yet.

        Personally, this pm_sig/div stuff surprised me too, I also have an empty sig, so I dont see why the reply box should throw (weird, in my opinion) div tags at me. Possibly a nice idea, whatever it was for, but not well thought out (IMHO).

        (Yeah, maybe Im a typical user, nothing against useful changes, but also scant/no knowledge of HTML, and no wish to learn it beyond simple stuff.. And the first thing I thought was 'WTF is that', and then 'can I delete/write between/ignore it')

      Doesn't seem to be working properly then - since I'm seeing it :-)

      Also - can I put in a plea to use a "-" rather than a "_" in the class name since the latter isn't legal CSS and can cause problems with some browsers.

        My patches haven't been applied. If and or when they will be applied I can't say, personally given the annoyance the previous patch has caused, and the fact that my patch(es) add both consistancy and user friendlyness and remove the annoyance from the current logic I'm suprised that chromatic or one of the other gods didn't apply them already.

        I have modified my patch as you request just a few minutes ago. :-)

    I got exactly the same. First time I deleted the div, second time I put my reply text inside the tags, as I presumed that was what I was supposed to do. It didn't happen this time, though, so I presume the bug has been fixed.
