in reply to Let's discuss Podmaster's Signature

if you want to filter out podmaster's sig, i recommend style sheets. add this to your css user setting:

div.pmsig div.pmsig-107642 { display:none; }

    Heh, it makes your posts invisible too. I should write a patch that gives a warning when someone posts everything within the signature div tags.

      yeah, i use my sig area to keep oft-used tags like blockquote, code, paragraph, etc. since the patch that wraps sigs in div tags was installed, i haven't modified my behavior, and now all my posts are wrapped in the sig div tags. oh well.

        Actually all you have to do is add the appropriate tags to your signature yourself and PM won't do it automatically for you. They look like

        <div class="pmsig"><div class="pmsig-USERID"> </div></div>

        Note: Its important that the two are not seperated with whitespace and contain no excess whitespace (ie are _exactly_ as above, with the user id substituted in) and that the user id (home node id) is correct. The match is NOT done with a regex for speed reasons

        The outer allows user to turn off ALL signatures, the inner allows users to disable specific annoying signatures. So this entire thread is a waste of time. Princepawn could have easily disabled Podmasters sig, which frankly was one of the sigs people had in mind when this functionality and the tags were added. Personally i find the "retardo" mildly irritating, but have much less of a problem with it than I do with its horrible size and colouring.

        Oh, as a last comment when I patched the original patch for adding this behaviour it added a comment to the html telling you how to do this yourself. The gods thought it was unnecessary and removed it.

    You can leave out the div.pmsig bit; just div.pmsig-107642 will suffice. In fact, using both won't work if you want to hide my sig, because I edit the HTML in my sig to be <div class="pmsig pmsig-114691">. (Yes, you can list multiple classes for a single tag.)
