    When adding/changing one's signature, the already posted content remains unchanged? I added a sig.; it does not seem to have appeared. If this be true, a member could wind up with many different signatures?

    Other forums I have attended, all previous posts' signatures were updated when changes were made.

    Or am I missing something?

    Edit: So, there it appears, on this first post since submitting it.

    My signature took a long time to show up as well.

    EDIT: I’ve just noticed that the new signature is only added to posts made after the signature change; posts made before the change retain the old signature.

    Thus, then, one may exhibit any number of different signatures forever (until booted out of the forum) by supplying a new one with each post. Fancy that! jocular

    my signatures from the past aren't showing. When I look at old posts, the signature that I had at the time isn't showing anymore because I recently deleted my signature. Not sure why your old signatures are still showing.

    i don't think signatures are an integral part of the post - they merely reflect your signature in your profile at the time
    a bit like your avatar really : when you change your avatar it changes it for all of your posts

    I couldn’t have a signature until I had made 5 posts (forum rule). When I had 5 posts, I added my signature; it showed up from my sixth post onwards, but was not added to my first five posts. I’ve just checked; my first five posts are still signatureless.

    This led me to suspect that changing signatures did not affect the signature of old posts. Maybe deleting signatures is different?

    You can select to include your signature for every post. Presumably It is unticked with your first 5 posts.
