Where do I create a 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.

Where do I create a signature?

I'm sure I'm being incredibly blind, but I've checked my control panel many times over, every tab, and I can only find the "automatically include signature" button, no place to actually type one. Can anyone give me more detailed instructions than the FAQ? Thanks.

@Pwyrdan
Go to User Control Panel & select the Tab titled Profile, on the left there are four options - select Edit Signature & away you go.

Yes -- as a new member, you're not allowed to have a full profile. Spend some time in the forums and make some posts. I think it took about a week before I was allowed to edit my profile as a newbie. But now I've been here forever. Like... a whole MONTH! :lol:

When you have at least 25 posts.
