    OK, I must be partially blind! There is nothing about my signature between "Your Photos" and "Your Lists"! What the heck am I doing wrong?

    The system has a feature that prevents members with less than a certain number of posts to add a signature. It's a safety feature to keep spammers at bay, and the system needs to "recognize" you before you're allowed to add a signature. So post a few more times and then you should be able to see it in your profile.

    There's another thread here, discussing this. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/622249/how-to-edit-signature

    Thanks, Lothiriel! Glad to know it's not me! Didn't look through the posts far enough, I reckon...

    Ohhh, that explains so much! I have spent close to thirty minutes total trying to figure out how to change my sig. Nothing in the FAQ says a certain number of posts are required, t it does say you must be "active.". Active is pretty vague though.
