    Since the forums are having a bit of a renaissance I thought I'd suggest an improvement I think many agree with.

    And that is to add the possibility of hiding individual signatures, since some people write a novel or insert 500MB worth of pictures. It's ridiculous when you load a thread and 80% of it are signatures.

    I know they can be disabled entirely but I'd like to have them enabled as I feel it's part of that comfy forum experience.

    Either this or putting some kind of limit on their size, or if they exceed a certain size automatically add some click-to-expand to limit their impact that way.

    There's gotta be someone who's made a Xenforo addon for this already.

    Ok so hear me out buddy, what you do is the following:
    1. You find a thread that has someone with a large signature
    2. Instead of saying anything relevant about the thread, you go into full overdrive to flame the living hell out of them and their signature.

    Derailing threads is always a good idea, particularly when done to bash someone

    Having sigs off for a good while because of people putting their maple character from maplestory.io inside it making the forum take 20 seconds to load instead of less than a second.

    As for the suggestion itself you can try find for me if there's an addon for it for Xenforo 1x then I could add such thing.

    I actually found one! Hopefully it works and is compatible.

    https://xenforo.com/community/resources/ignore-signatures.1916/ - for hiding specific user's signatures

    https://xenforo.com/community/resources/freddyshouse-signature-once.179/ - found this as well which loads users signature only once per thread or thread page but that might be unnecessary

    A bit delayed but ran into problems. I have now installed the addon SnorkSnork linked

    When hovering over a sig now from someone, you will now see this
    upload_2022-2-23_13-18-55.png

    Clicking on it seems to hide the signature. I hope the addon does this properly, meaning it also does not load into memory. Could you guys use it to report back to me if it works fine? I already had it hidden for ages for all users, so I am not too sure here.

    Hovering again over the same user shows "Show this user's signature".
