Can I use the following for my Sig ?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to know can i continue to use my current Sig ??

    Read the following thread for why i'm asking this question.

    If Mike Walsh is right here, I would be more than happy to change my Sig or best option would be keep it blank.

    Again i'm not against anyone here, but have seen multiple users using similar sig here.

  • While some people don't like that sig, keeping it general like that is okay. You're not asking people to mark your answers only, just the replies that actually answer the questions. Let us know if anyone argues with you about this.

    Thanks!

  • I can only assume Mr. Parmar posted the wrong link because I can find no mention there of me complaining a sig there. Instead my posts there were about the incorrectness of posting SP 2010 questions to a pre-SP 2010 forum.

    There were on the other hand numerous threads in which I did complain about threads containing such a sig as Mr. Parmar is using here because to my mind they are only there so that *that particular* post is more often marked as an answer thus gaining people who use them additional points (for using this technique).

    However, since complaining about this kind of gamesmanship was no doubt one of the reasons I lost my Moderator rights, we can say that this argument at least has been solved in Mr. Parmar's (and other people like him) favour.

    Note: It does seem to be more than a bit pointless resurrecting a post like this from November 2010 by replying to it!   (Thus causing my ancient Alert on it to wake me up).

    Yeah, the consensus is that you shouldn't use sigs that tell people to mark your own answers but it's okay to encourage the behavior in general. The preference is to also encourage people to use the valuable but mostly unnused "Propose As Asnwer" and "Vote As Helpful" features as well.
