I know I'm probably in the minority here being a non-signature person, but they can be so annoying, especially when using the mobile application. They seem to be posts that just never go away. It feels like half the time the signature is longer than the post. Couldn't they be moved over to the avatar section if people really feel it's important for us to know they were part of the Get Rid Of Willie club? That way we could impose at least a twitter limit to their length.

I will ponder this. Eventually, I will get around to rec-creating the mobile specific theme, that won't include sigs. Just have a lot of stuff that's at a higher priority than the mobile version right now with camp starting/photo editing, etc.

I agree, a lot lower priority then all that other good stuff you're bringing. And the new mobile app is great. My comment was definitely a tinkering around the edges comment.

signatures and avatars have kind of been an NYFS staple. On the one hand, we probably have the most restrictive rules about community standards/posting leeway, etc. but on the other, I kind of feel like of all the places Mets fans can post out there, we have some of the most friendly in terms of letting users express themselves via their avatars/sigs/profiles.

So I'm always a bit hesitant to put restrictions on that stuff, beyond common sense stuff.

However, it's definitely a fine line and I do cringe sometimes over the use of signatures in particular to call out other users or players, etc.

One of the issues I have been facing this offseason is 'what is the overall vision?' for this years NYFS reclimation/update project.

In the past, I've thought up a bunch of new features and implemented them and used a kind of 'throw spaghetti/see what sticks" kind of approach.

This year, I've been going with more of a "Less is more, but more is also more" approach, where I've been trying to eliminate stuff that is not really used, and double down on the stuff that works/is being used.

This has led to a lot of things that in the short term maybe reduce page views/rvenue, but are more fan friendly in terms of giving users stuff that make the experience of using NYFS better. The idea being that if it's more of the good stuff and more fun and easier to use, what we sacrifice in page views by having 12 posts per page instead of 10 and 'quick reply' we'll be made up for by more users spending more time here.

i think the user expression tools like avatars and signatures fall in to the category of stuff that make it fun for users to be here, so I have to think a bit about 'how do I make them less, while also making them more.'

And I'm just not sure I have a brilliant answer to that question yet.
