    We are seeing more and more adbots appearing on site with links in their signatures, I assume to get around any possible blocks on links in posts/threads. Therefore I'd suggest a limit (say a few days and x number of posts) before users are able to post links into their signatures.

    That would at least help to curb the effects of some of the adbots. I do recognise that we can't really impose limits on links in profiles because one of the first things legitimate users want to be able to do is post links to their work.

    Interesting idea. Though I'm not criticizing you, I notice your sig line has 5 links and is 11 lines. ;) (yes, I know mine has 2 links and is 7 lines, though 4 are small)

    I could go for that, thirty days and thirty posts, then turn on sigs.
