As part of our effort to add value to our most valued community members, the Verizon Fios Community team is pleased to announce the introduction of Community Member Signatures. A Signature is a block of text that is appended to the end of a member’s message posts. Generally speaking, a signature is used to automatically append your name and some descriptive commentary, such as, your device(s), profession, or quote that personalizes you as a community member to a post. Once community members have reached a certain Community Rank, they may use the My Profile link to setup their Signature.
The Signature tool allows up to 250 characters and no more than 3 horizontal lines of text. In addition, community members can use a limited set of HTML tags within their signatures to give them a distinctive look (HTML is not required). The following HTML tags can be used within signatures:
Carriage Return (New line)
Set Font Type, Size and Color
All Signatures, whether automatically appended to a message from your Member Profile or typed directly into the message post – must adhere to the following guidelines:
Signatures may not contain images or any external links. In addition, signatures may not contain any active code, scripts, CSS, JS, mouseovers, midi files, tracking mechanisms, cookies, or any type of code other than plain HTML used in standard ways. Code written to bypass board filters in any way will be a violation of the Terms of Service.
No Advertising – Under no circumstances may community members use their Signature to advertise, market, or publicize any product, service, political cause, product review, movement, or external website. This includes linking to any Verizon branded services. Posting for the sole purpose of allowing one's signature to display within the community forums will not be tolerated. Examples of this include empty posts, repetitive posts, "bumping" without adding useful content, or other types of posts that do not contribute individually to healthy interaction. In addition, blatant language or techniques, including frequent change of signatures, is prohibited and will be interpreted as Advertising.
Community Administrators reserve the right to modify or delete any signatures deemed to violate any of the terms and conditions set forth on these forums and is the final authority on this matter.
We hope the addition of this frequently requested feature helps all of our community members receive a more useful experience. As always, we welcome your feedback and ask that you post any comments or suggestions you may have.
