why can't i set my signature?

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

If you have a question or problem regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

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.
