Able to hide signatures

I got this idea of where there is an option that you could hide your signature if you don't want to see it, so you could be focused on the main message, not the thing.
A few mock-ups:
When signature open:
{…}
* signature *
When signature closed.
{…}
This could apply for everyone, or just some people.

Do you mean an option where you can either see everyone's signatures, or no one's?

If so, support. It would be nice to declutter the forums if people prefer to have them look like that.

It looks like I'm a Scratch Team member now!

This reminds me of a “spoiler” feature used in other forums.
Edit: Yes this would be useful, thus it has my support.

I support this, even though I wouldn't use this feature at all.
I can understand that signatures can clutter the forums, which is why I'm supporting this, but I just like to see how creative some people can be with their signatures.















Mine's the best, though.

This is my signature, which shows up every time I post (this is for people who are confused)
I'm kind of… (for lack of a better word) addicted… to helping on the forums… should I be concerned?
Somehow, I missed my 500th post and can't remember when it happened… lol.
If you see (DATA MISCODED) then I just removed something. If I'm feeling silly, then you might see (OWO). Or both. That might happen too. (DATA MISCODED OWO)

Semi-support, I suppose some people may find it useful, but I've never heard people complain about this before, and if it really bothers you, there should be some way to block signatures with an ad blocker extension by making it block all content below the grey line in a post.

Number 1000: the first time you see this copy and paste it on top of your sig in the scratch forums and decrease the number by 1, and add your username to the end of the number, but only if there wasn't a username already there! Comment on the user who you found this from's profile saying that you continued the experiment. Social experiment started by dude341, based on “generation social experiment” trend.

No Support. Signatures don't even take up much space, anyways.

Support.

Sometimes, when the posts are small (like one line or something), I tend to miss the actual message due to the signature being bigger than the post. xD I think this would be a nice feature to have added to the forums.

when green flag clicked
say [Thanks for reading my post!] for (54329) secs
QUICK! HELP! I AM IN NEED OF DIRE ASSISTANCE - IT'S AN EMERGENCY! I CAN ONLY FIT SO MUCH IN THIS SIGNATURE, SO PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK TO READ MORE! HEEELLLPPP MEEEEeeeeeee……………

There should be a button underneath each person's post count or something to revel their signature.

when signature read:: events hat

Yeah, if this was added, I prefer it would be added like this.

Support, would be better to have the option to only hide signatures of individual people too or in general.

At this point I've been thinking about a new signature for a month .____.

Thanks for all the support!
I think it should be under the grey line so new mockup:
Signature Open:
* POST *
——————————–
Hide signature
* SIGNATURE
Signature Closed:
* POST *
——————————–
Show signature
{…}

Signatures are a good way for people to express themselves, and I don't find them that distracting.

Only when there is some animated signature that takes up space, and a very small (1 line) post.

Support. I understand that a signature is where you express yourself, but too often people make such signatures loud, bright, and distracting. They can also advertise there, and it completely bypasses Brave Shields or any other blocker. I want the option to hide them.

Hi, I'm ResExsention, a New Scratcher who refuses to press that button! I hope we get to know each other and become friends!

If you see "[DATA EXPUNGED]", you'll know it was deleted by me. It's a lot easier.
