    Look at top right corner of any page for Settings and click on that.

    Next page - look to far left column an scroll down to My Settings --> click Edit Signature

    Volia - type in your preference. There may still be a 10 post minimum for the signature to appear.

    Your signature is there, see above. It just won't appear as you type.

    not sure how many posts I have. probably under ten.

    Also, how would I go about changing my user name 'handle' to match the one i use on other OC forums?

    I guess since I am a "newbie" here and this is only my 3rd post, I will need to make 7 more posts before I can make my own signature

    If you just follow Grapeshot, Skidmark and Citizen around the forum, you can get 7 posts of "+1" or "that's a good point" in before morning.

    Though, I'd hope you would make your posts most substantial and contributory than that.

    Sometimes the brief "+1" is a quick, simple way to add weight to a previous poster's reply w/o wasting white space, especially when the plus oner's position is well known - it's internet shorthand.

    Other times therein sits a coded, secret message to other members of the Olde Pharts Club

    I see very little evidence (virtually nil) of anyone simply trying to drive up post count......well maybe 1 or 2 occasionally.

    There is great benefit in seeing more detail, especially from a newbie - helps to inform the readership of who and what you are, additionally reduces misunderstandings.
