    Now I am all for transparency and hope you guys are too, but why was my signature just changed to "buhbye to sig"? Could the mod that did this at least have the decency to tell me why it was removed.

    Seems fair to me instead of just removing it.

    As far as I remember you had a link in your signature, right?
    But you have to be a premium member to use links in your signature (for advertising).

    So it could be that they deleted your signature because you are not a premium member (jr.VIP + Premium Membership). [That would be my guess.. I don´t know what kind of membership status you actually have ;-)]

    I'm also wondering, I used to have an image banner in my footer, now its gone. In fact I don't see ANY banners in sigs anymore. Are they no longer allowed?

    P.S. I was Junior VIP 2 days ago, and I haven't been able to use a banner in weeks. Also I don't see ANY banner on any posts anywhere anymore. So my status has nothing to do with it.

    I don't think that's it because they could just set the permissions to disallow links. I see what your saying about the for advertising part. I put a link to an affiliate program once and I never had a problem (I was unaware of such a rule)

    Wasn't ghostcpa removed from the BST section? They probably took down your sig because you were linking to the sales page.

    idk just my theory

    P.S. Redhack, it's because you no longer have a donor status

    Read Rule No.5.

    5. SIGNATURES
    You must be a member of the forum for 30 days and have 50 quality posts before you will be allowed to use a signature on this forum. In order to use links or images in your signature, you need to be a Donor. You may post 2-3 affiliate links or 1 SMALL banner in your signature. Do not use a font size larger than 2, crazy fonts/colors, sound clips, excessive smileys, or anything else annoying. We reserve the right to change, delete or rearrange your signature as we see fit at any time.

    Ok that is all fine and well, but my image didn't have any of the flashes or anything that the ones I have seen lately have. I have been a member of the forum for over 30 days, and have over 50 quality posts. I understand that you guys reserve the right, but I think it is also fair as we are paying members for you to let us know why it was changed, deleted, or rearranged when it happens so we can change it. I think most people can agree with that. So again, I would like to ask why mine was removed (as well as the one I recently had with just a text link). I think it is being more than fair to ask something like this especially since there have been several posts by mods about how they are trying to be transparent.

    What I'm saying is, sure you donated but the paid membership part expired. Or did it not? How come your name is yellow?

    Yes my membership expired 2 days ago, but my banner sig disappeared weeks ago along with everyone else's.

    Well yeah Dave said he couldn't have the forum endorsing it, but because it is not in the B/S/T section doesn't mean it shouldn't be allowed in my sig. Plenty of people are advertising stuff here in their sigs that is not featured in the b/s/t section. Again, I am not trying to be rude here but I think anyone can agree the way it was handled (my sig being removed and replaced with "buhbye sig") is VERY childish. I mean are the moderators trying to taunt me? What is this?

    I do not know who deleted your signature the first time, but this time I am deleting it.

    You will also be receiving a luxurious 14 day vacation away from BHW

    1) For keep questioning in public a moderators decision to delete your sig
    2) For putting the sig back up after it was removed for a reason.
