You need to have at least 50 posts before you can set a signature, its to stop spammers filling up the site with rubbish and show you are a genuine contributor. I am not mad about people here who have a website or blog in their signature as its a forum at the end of the day, not a shop. A signature should be a quote or a saying.

Hey there! Do we think we can change the FAQ to reflect this rule, because I was looking at my Control Panel like I was a bit special or something. Thought it was me that was having issues! Cheers!

There is a notice on the signature page that it cannot be set until you have made 25 posts.

I think it is 25 now not 50.
